The students were named to the All-Missouri Academic Team, an honor bestowed on the state’s top community college students. The students honored include:
Anna Houston. Ms. Houston is currently studying English with plans to eventually work in publishing. She is the recipient of many honors including being on the President’s List for three consecutive semesters.
Lindsey Summers. Ms. Summers is majoring in Marketing and Management and plans to become an event planner and start her own business. She has served as Phi Theta Kappa’s president, received the A+ Scholarship, and Dean’s and President’s Lists every semester.
