Four Paul D. Camp Community College students were recognized by the Virginia Community College System for outstanding academic achievement during a special event held in Richmond.

Among the 74 honorees representing Virginia’s 23 community colleges were Paul D. Camp students Andrew Stegman, Taryn Hains-Karmilovich, Olivia Davis and Mary Burgess.

The Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society 2017 All-Virginia Academic Awards Luncheon was held at Four Points by Sheraton and featured remarks from the VCCS Chancellor Dr. Glenn DuBois, Lord Fairfax Community College President Dr. Cheryl Thomson-Stacy, and President and CEO of PTK Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, who served as guest speaker.

The PTK Honor Society All-Virginia Academic Team program is not just about academic excellence. Members possess leadership skills and work hard to give back to their communities as well.

According to PTK, Virginia is one of 38 states participating in the All-State Academic Teams program. It was introduced in 1994 as a way to give scholastic recognition to its members while promoting excellence at two-year colleges.

Toni Johnson and Sherri Ward are co-sponsors of the organization at Paul D. Camp.
