From Harford Community College:
Harford Community College student Tanya Ramsey was nominated for the 2016 All-USA Community College Academic Team. The team recognizes high achieving two-year college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends beyond the classroom to benefit society.
Tanya was recognized recently at the 22nd All-Maryland Academic Team celebration. At the event, Harford Community College President Dennis Golladay said that Tanya found education to be her path out of economic despair. “Taking every advantage of her experience at Harford Community College, Tanya entered the honors program, served as a student ambassador, and held leadership roles in Phi Theta Kappa and the Student Empowerment Club. She plans to pursue a Ph.D. and pursue a career as a child abuse counselor to help show others the path out of despair and into a fulfilling life.”
She was invited to the Harford Community College Board of Trustees meeting in June. Tanya was presented with a certificate recognizing her nomination to the All-USA team. She graduated from HCC with high honors and earned an Associate of Arts degree in Psychology.
Over 1,900 students from more than 1,000 community, technical, and junior colleges competed for the 2016 All-USA Community College Academic Team. The competition is sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group, presented by USA Today, with additional support provided by the American Association of Community Colleges and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
