Posted May 9, 2023 at 3:37 pm

The Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges recently honored the 29th annual All-Pennsylvania Academic Team, consisting of 64 students representing 14 community colleges from across the Commonwealth. The honor recognizes high achieving college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society.

The students are selected for the All-Pennsylvania Academic Team based on a nomination and application process. The 2023 scholars include 48 Transfer Pathway students and 16 Workforce Pathway students.

Seven of those honored were from Pennsylvania Highlands Community College. The following students were honored and are members of the All-Pennsylvania Academic Transfer and Workforce Pathway Teams:

  • Kylee Fabo (Summerhill, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Adrianna Farrell (Northern Cambria, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Emma Martz (Berlin, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Jeffrey Matevish (Johnstown, PA) – Workforce Pathway Scholar
  • Brianna Pavkovich (Rockwood, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Rebecca Perrone (Northern Cambria, PA) – Workforce Pathway Scholar
  • Jessica Shockey (Friedens, PA) – Transfer Scholar

Transfer Pathway honorees plan to transfer to a four-year college after graduation. They must have completed at least 36 credits at a community college with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. Pennsylvania’s community colleges partner with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education to provide scholarships to Transfer Pathway students, providing two years of tuition at any PASSHE school.

Workforce Pathway student honorees plan to enter the workforce after completing a certificate or associate degree at a community college. Workforce Pathway students must have a minimum of 12 college-level credit hours at a community college and a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.

“We are so pleased to honor these scholars,” said Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges President and CEO Elizabeth Bolden. “They are outstanding and accomplished students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. They are applying their intellectual skills to make lasting contributions to their colleges and communities. And they showcase that Pennsylvania’s community colleges are educating and training tomorrow’s leaders.”
