The Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges recently honored the 28th Annual All-Pennsylvania Academic Team, a remarkable group of community college students who have achieved academic excellence and demonstrated a commitment to their colleges and communities.

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:

  • Kirstin Emerick (Beaverdale, PA)
  • Matthew Gaul (Irvona, PA)
  • Brooke Marek (Cairnbrook, PA)
  • Julie Mitchell (Berlin, PA)
  • Kethan Satterfield (Altoona, PA)
  • Sydney Sheredy (Northern Cambria, PA)
  • Joseph Stringent (Johnstown, PA)

Overall, the 2022 awardees included 46 outstanding community college transfer scholars and eight exceptional workforce pathway scholars from across the Commonwealth. Transfer students must have completed at least 36 credits at a community college and must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher to be considered for these awards. Workforce students must have a minimum of 12 college-level credit hours at a community college and a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Pennsylvania’s community colleges partner with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) universities to provide scholarships to eligible All-Pennsylvania Transfer Team members at PASSHE institutions, providing two years of tuition at any PASSHE school.

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College congratulates these students on their academic achievements and looks forward to what each of their futures will hold.
