For the first time in the history of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society in Illinois, four students from the same community college were named to the Phi Theta Kappa All-Illinois Academic Team, and that community college was your hometown favorite, DACC.
In prior years, only students in transfer programs were eligible for induction. This year, the Society opened eligibility to students in career programs, thereby expanding the number of potential inductees from two to four.
DACC is the only college among the State’s 46 community colleges with four students earning a spot on the All-Academic Team. Michaela Gomez and McKenzie Zarn, both from Danville, are graduating as transfer students. The career-and-tech inductees are April Maruna, Danville, and Tiffany Shrout, Chrisman, who are both business-management students in applied sciences. Professor Ronnie Johnson is the PTK sponsor. He accompanied the women to the induction/recognition ceremony.
