Forty-two Ivy Tech Community College students were named to this year’s Phi Theta Kappa All-Indiana Community College Academic team during the All-Indiana Academic Team Luncheon, located in Bloomington, Ind. These recognitions are given to high achieving community college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor, combined with leadership and service both in and outside of the classroom. They are categorized by transfer or workforce pathways.
Of these 42 Ivy Tech students, two were named as New Century Scholars. New Century Scholars are also categorized through the transfer or workforce pathways and scholarships are awarded.
The workforce pathway scholarship recognizes the achievements of career-bound/workforce-ready students and provides scholarships to complete their associate degrees, obtain necessary certifications and purchase tools or other trade-specific items needed to enter the workforce. The transfer pathway scholarship recognizes the achievements of students planning to transfer to a four-year university.
Gulab Parab of Bloomington was the New Century Transfer Scholar and was awarded $2,250. He will be given the chance to attend the President’s Breakfast at the American Association of Community College (AACC) conference held in Dallas in April. During this event, he will be honored with a medallion and certificate.
Rachel Dutoi of South Bend was named the New Century Workforce Scholar and received a $1,250 scholarship. She will be invited to attend the Association of Community College Trustees Congress in October to receive a medallion and certificate.
