Two students from Bluefield State College's Greenbrier Community College Center have been named to the All-West Virginia Academic Team for Community and Technical Colleges. Diana Green and William Renn, both residents of Ronceverte, were among students honored by West Virginia Governor Cecil Underwood in a ceremony at the State Capitol, April 10.
Green, a business management major, and Penn, who is majoring in criminal justice/corrections, were selected from a pool of candidates nominated by each college with a community & technical college component in the State College System of West Virginia. Their selection was based on academic achievement and leadership qualities.
The academic team is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society that recognizes extraordinary academic achievement and leadership qualities of students enrolled in two-year programs.
Governor Underwood also proclaimed April "Community College Month" to recognize the many efforts of community and technical colleges in West Virginia.
