Recently, students from the Alpha Delta Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, at Carl Albert State College, were nominated for the All-Oklahoma/All-USA Academic Team Scholarship. Due to COVID, the group was not able to travel to Oklahoma City for the ceremony, but they were celebrated among their peers and by the leadership at CASC.
Honoring the students are President Jay Falkner, Recipient Cambri Coleman, Recipient Kayla Stiles, and Advisor Annette Staats.
The All-Oklahoma Academic Team Program provides statewide recognition to outstanding two-year college students. To be eligible, students must be nominated by their college president or representative to the All-USA Academic Team. Nominees must be eligible to graduate during the 2020-21 academic year and have at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA. Medallions and certificates were mailed to honorees after the event was cancelled due the COVID-19 pandemic.
Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society has recognized academic excellence in the two-year colleges since 1918 and has become the largest and one of the most prestigious honor societies in higher education. The CASC chapter was chartered in 1979 as the Alpha Delta Lambda Chapter. Phi Theta Kappa membership is by invitation only to students who have completed at least 12 credit hours toward their degree with a 3.5 or better grade point average. Students may be either full-time or part-time and must enjoy the full rights of citizenship of their country.
