NW-SCC students selected for 2023 All-Alabama Academic Team
Northwest-Shoals Community College students Hannah Foster and Alana Jenkins were named as two of 46 students in the state earn spots on the 2023 All-Alabama Academic Team. They were honored in a recognition program April 14 in Birmingham, Ala. Foster and Jenkins will each receive a $1,000 scholarship for being selected to the All-Alabama Academic Team.
Foster, a Haleyville resident, plans to apply to the physical therapist assistant program at Wallace State Community College. After receiving her license, her goal is to work with different cultures and communities while traveling.
Jenkins, a Russellville resident, plans to attend the University of North Alabama and earn a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Her goal is to teach children in kindergarten through sixth grade.
The faculty and staff of NW-SCC nominate students for the All-Alabama Academic Team. The criteria calls for choosing students who “excel academically; demonstrate intellectual rigor in their course of study; show academic growth and potential; and use their two-year college education to better themselves, their schools and their communities.” Each community college in Alabama has two representatives.
The Alabama College System’s All-Alabama Academic Team Recognition Program was established in 1995 as an enhancement to the All-USA National Academic Team Recognition Program, which is sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the American Association of Community Colleges and USA Today.
