Three Bevill State students were recently honored at the annual All-Alabama Community College Academic Team Recognition Ceremony on April 19.
StoriLee Brown of Bevill State-Jasper and Kai Spear of Bevill State-Fayette were named to the 2019 All-Alabama Academic Team, which recognizes academic achievements and leadership skills.
"The All-Alabama Academic Team scholarship and recognition program exists to provide Alabama Community College System students funding to support education and training in pursuit of a successful career pathway and a recognition program to honor outstanding scholarly achievements," a press release from BSCC states.
Spear was also honored as a 2019 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Silver Scholar. Silver scholars receive a $1,250 scholarship and commemorative medallion.
Bevill State-Sumiton welding student David Robinson was also honored at the event and named a 2019 New Century Workforce Pathway Scholar.
A press release from Bevill State states, "This scholarship is the first of its kind to support students at associate degree-granting institutions who plan to enter the workforce upon the completion of a degree or certificate on a national scale."
Robinson received a $1,250 scholarship and is the only student in Alabama to receive the honor that is based on academic performance, involvement and leadership qualities.
The New Century Workforce Pathway Scholar program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation and Phi Theta Kappa.
“We congratulate David for receiving this prestigious scholarship, and we are honored to partner with The Coca-Cola Foundation to recognize his outstanding achievements,” Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said. “Scholarship programs like this are integral for creating opportunities for students to succeed as they prepare to enter the workforce and for putting college completion within reach.”
Bevill State President Dr. Kim Ennis praised Spear, Brown and Robinson for receiving such prestigious honors.
“We are proud of the outstanding accomplishments of these students and are pleased they received scholarships and recognition for their hard work and academic success,” Ennis said.
