CCBC NAMES TWO STUDENTS TO THE ALL-PENNSYLVANIA ACADEMIC TEAM

Each year, Pennsylvania’s 14 community colleges together with Phi Theta Kappa, the national two-year college honor society, honor community college students from across the commonwealth for their academic achievements in the classroom and volunteerism in their communities. 

This year, Community College of Beaver County names Brittnay Mayhue (pictured left) of Beaver, PA and Kimberly Zalewski (pictured right) of Aliquippa, PA as the 2013 All-PA Academic Team for the College.

Upon graduation from the College, Brittnay Mayhue plans to transfer to West Chester University to pursue her bachelor’s degree.  She hopes to one day be an English teacher.  Brittnay is the recipient of the Garbinski Scholarship, a member of Phi Theta Kappa, and had a vital role in raising funds to place benches around campus.  In addition to her on-campus activities, she is also a volunteer for the Young Life Club and works at Applebee’s. Congratulations, Brittnay!

Kimberly Zalewski will graduate from the College in August with a degree in social work.  Upon graduation, she plans to transfer to California University of Pennsylvania and hopes to one day obtain a Master’s Degree and work as a licensed clinical social worker.  During her time at CCBC, Kimberly helped raise funds to make the campus more handicapped accessible and also served in several capacities for the World Vision organization to help families in need.  Kimberly is a member Phi Theta Kappa and has been on the President’s List for the last three semesters. Congratulations, Kimberly!

In order to be named to the All-Pennsylvania Academic Team, students must also maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher. The ceremony to honor members of the All-Pennsylvania Academic Team was held in Harrisburg, PA on April 8.
