Two Danville Community College students have been nominated to the Phi Theta Kappa 2020 All-Virginia Academic Team.
Students Ann Toon and Dorian Elliot received medallions and certificates in recognition of this honor.
Students from across the state are usually recognized by Virginia’s Community Colleges at an awards luncheon in Richmond, but the luncheon has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I have had the privilege of teaching Ann and Dorian,” said Vickie Taylor, assistant professor and Phi Theta Kappa advisor. “This has given me first-hand knowledge of their dedication to academic excellence in their course work. Through their efforts in Phi Theta Kappa and their academic achievements, they are excellent examples for other students as to how the community college can be valuable.”
Toon is a liberal arts major with a cumulative GPA of 3.747.
Elliot is a liberal arts/social science major with a cumulative GPA of 4.0.
