All-Missouri Academic Team Recognition
Missouri was the first state in the nation to honor outstanding Phi Theta Kappa scholar-leaders with a state academic team program. The tradition began in 1994, and today 36 other states have adopted the idea and made it their own.
Students are selected to be on the All-Missouri Academic Team by Phi Theta Kappa. In order to apply for recognition, a student must be nominated by the PTK contact at their college. The deadline to apply is generally early December. Visit PTK’s All-USA Community College Academic Team webpage for more information.
MCCA will honor the All-Missouri Academic Team, as well as any members of the All-USA Team and recipients of the New Century Scholar Award and Coca-Cola Bronze, Silver, and Gold Scholar awards at a luncheon on Tuesday, March 5, 2013. The luncheon is currently scheduled to begin at noon and will be held at the Doubletree Hotel in Jefferson City, Missouri.
Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching
Outstanding community college educators are honored each year with the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. This award is presented to an exemplary teacher from each college, and the presentation is made during the same luncheon at which the members of the All-Missouri Academic Team are honored.
This year’s Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching will be honored on Tuesday, March 5, 2013. The luncheon is currently scheduled to begin at noon and will be held at the Doubletree Hotel in Jefferson City, Missouri.
