Students named to All-Washington Academic Team

Students Phuc Thien Do and Jonathan Harper have been selected for the Phi Theta Kappa 2015 All-Washington Academic Team. They will join 65 students representing 34 community and technical colleges from all over Washington to be recognized during a ceremony at South Puget Sound Community College, where Governor Inslee is slated to provide the keynote address.

The All-Washington Academic Team project started 20 years ago to honor academic high-achievers from community and technical colleges. Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society that recognizes scholarship among two-year college students who are working on associate degrees.

Phuc Thien Do is a first generation college student from South Vietnam who is studying business and hopes to pursue a career in clean energy. Jonathan Harper is a biology student who hopes to become a Medical Examiner and has dreams of serving his community as a state representative.

The event is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa International, the presidents and trustees of Washington’s two-year colleges, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges and KeyBank, which awards $500 scholarships to each member of the team.
