Six Palm Beach State students named to All-Florida Academic Team
Six Palm Beach State College students selected for the 2014 All-Florida Academic Team will be recognized by the Florida College System at an awards ceremony at Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando today.
Lisa Pudda, Melissa Almeida, Cheryl Campbell, Brian Green, Jeffrey Spreng and Anders Viane are among 109 students around the state named to this year’s team. The awards ceremony for the team is being held in conjunction with the annual Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society Convention.
The All-Florida Academic Team is divided into two teams based on students’ level of achievements. Pudda made the first time and the other students made the second team.
The All-Florida Academic Team is composed of students who were nominated by their respective colleges to the All-USA Academic Team competition sponsored by USA Today and Phi Theta Kappa.
Students were nominated based on their participation in honors programs; membership in and awards received from academic or honors organizations; awards and honors received for academic and leadership accomplishments; academic enrichment achieved through study; internships and cultural experiences and sharing of academic attainments, knowledge and skills through community service.
