Col­lege cel­e­brates stu­dent achieve­ments

Cecil Whig - - LOCAL - WHIG STAFF RE­PORT

— More than 35 stu­dents were hon­ored at the first Ce­cil Col­lege Stu­dent Award and Recog­ni­tion Cer­e­mony on April 22.

The cer­e­mony cel­e­brated the lat­est in­ductees to the col­lege’s Al­pha Al­pha Theta chap­ter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor So­ci­ety, as well as the re­cip­i­ents of the col­lege’s Don­ald M. Thomey Out­stand­ing Stu­dent Award, aca­demic de­part­men­tal awards and stu­den­tath­lete awards.

“These stu­dents have had some out­stand­ing achieve­ments, which they worked very hard for,” Ce­cil Col­lege Pres­i­dent Mary Way Bolt said. “Each one of them can prob­a­bly name a fac­ulty mem­ber, an ad­vi­sor, a staff mem­ber or maybe even an ad­min­is­tra­tor who helped them on their way to where they are to­day. Most im­por­tantly, we need to thank their fam­ily and friends for their sup­port.”

Four­teen stu­dents were in­ducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor So­ci­ety, which rec­og­nizes and en­cour­ages the aca­demic achieve­ment of two-year col­lege stu­dents and pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­di­vid­ual growth and de­vel­op­ment through par­tic­i­pa­tion in hon­ors, lead­er­ship, ser­vice and fel­low­ship pro­gram­ming. The new mem­bers

An­drea Re­nee Zartler won the Don­ald M. Thomey Out­stand­ing Stu­dent Award, which hon­ors a stu­dent grad­u­at­ing with an as­so­ciate de­gree who has the high- est GPA and has taken all his or her course­work at Ce­cil Col­lege. Zartler will re­ceive a de­gree in gen­eral stud­ies and two de­grees in vis­ual com­mu­ni­ca­tions — one in web de­sign and mul­ti­me­dia and one in web de­vel­op­ment.

The de­part­men­tal awards, which are cho­sen by the col­lege’s fac­ulty to honor stu­dents in their de­part­ments who demon­strate ex­cel­lence, were also pre­sented. The 2016 hon­ors were pre­sented to Laura May Maloney, art; Mor­gan M. Cochran, bi­ol­ogy; Krys­tal Ann Greco, busi­ness and com­puter in­for­ma­tion sys­tems; Zachary Tanner Shivery, com­puter science; Sarah Lynn Huth, ed­u­ca­tion; Dy­lan Lee Schantz, engi­neer­ing; Shan­non Rose Moody, English; Lind­say An­toinette Morra, equine stud­ies; Thomas Matthew Hart­sky, math­e­mat­ics; Jamie Lee Cher­waty, nurs­ing and health pro­fes­sions; Jonathan Dean Luther, per­form­ing arts; Lind­sey Leigh Meyer, phys­i­cal ther­a­pist as­sis­tant; Robert Eng­land Parcher, physics; De­lana Kathryn Ringer, so­cial sci­ences; and Lu­cas Christo­pher LaMon­ica, vis­ual com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

Stu­dent-ath­letes who were named all-con­fer­ence, all-re­gion, All-Amer­i­can or to an all-tour­na­ment or aca­demic team were also hon­ored at the cer­e­mony. This year’s hon­orees were vol­ley­ball player Aubrie Cress­well, men’s basketball play­ers Da­jour Diggs, Michael Hays­bert and Dy­ron Jones; and women’s basketball play­ers Dony’e Moses, Imani Quinn and Nia Trusty.
