ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS

Ivy Tech Community College

Thirty-seven students from Ivy Tech Community College campuses across the state were named to this year’s All-Indiana Academic Team. The academic competition, which scores students on academic honors, activities including leadership and work experience and an essay, is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, USA TODAY and the American Association of Community Colleges.

Sheree Craig, Brenda Price, Lauren Singer and Joshua Wickizer, Ivy Tech Southeast students, represented the team.

Two Ivy Tech Community College-Lawrenceburg students who are Ripley County residents were inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for two-year college students, March 21 in the Business Conference Center at the Lawrenceburg Riverfront campus.

Students inducted were Julia Sizemore, Holton, and Kristen Johnson, Sunman.

Phi Theta Kappa is the only nationally acclaimed honor society serving two-year colleges offering associate degree programs. Membership is extended by invitation only. To be considered, a student must be enrolled in a regionally accredited institution offering an associate degree, have accumulated the number of hours used by that college to designate full-time status, have completed at least 12 hours of course work in courses leading to an associate degree, have established a grade-point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 point scale, have established a record of academic excellence as judged by the faculty, be of good moral character and possess recognized qualities of citizenship.

University of Dayton

Two area students, Erin Walsh, Batesville, and Elle Riehle, West Harrison, were named to the University of Dayton Dean’s List for the 2014 spring semester.

To qualify for the list, an undergraduate degree-seeking student must have a minimum of a 3.5 grade-point average and must have been enrolled for 12 or more credits that semester.

In recognition of outstanding academic achievement, the University of Southern Indiana Honors List has been released for the 2014 spring semester. Dr. Ronald Rochon, provost, reported that 1,983 undergraduates were named to the list, including Katilyn Miller, Batesville; Virginia Ertel, Sunman; and Rebeccah Davis, Milan.
