Posted April 23, 2024 at 12:38 pm

The Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges recently honored the 30th annual All-Pennsylvania Academic Team, consisting of select students representing 15 community colleges from across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

This 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 2024 scholars include Transfer Pathway students and Workforce Pathway students, with six of those honored hailing from Pennsylvania Highlands. The following students were selected and are members of the All-Pennsylvania Academic Transfer Pathway Team:

  • Madison Bender (Ashville, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Seth Dillon (Coalport, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Kelly Hearn (Rockwood, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Marcayes Hutchins (Johnstown, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Ean Jaber (Johnstown, PA) – Transfer Scholar
  • Tessa Snavely (East Freedom, 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.

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College congratulates these six students on being selected for the 2024 All-Pennsylvania Academic Team.
