Four Mt. San Jacinto College students were recognized on March 7, 2012 by the Community College League, college administrators and state Legislators.

MSJC students Amy Bartel, Samuel Fall, Stacie Macias, and Thomas Morrissey have been selected for the 2012 Phi Theta Kappa All-California Community College Academic Team. They will attend a luncheon on March 7, 2012 at the Sacramento Convention Center where they will receive medallions of honor and certificates for their accomplishments. More information about the event can be found here.

Judges for Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for community college students, used grades, leadership, and community service accomplishments to determine their selection to the All-California first, second, and third teams. Collectively, these students represent some of the best of the 2.9 million community college students in California.

Amy Bartel of San Jacinto currently holds a 4.0 GPA and plans on majoring in Ancient Near Eastern Studies and Archaeology. She hopes to transfer to UC Berkeley or UCLA in the fall with the goal of one day conducting field research in the Mediterranean. During her time at MSJC, she has served as the Phi Theta Kappa Vice President from 2010-2011, and is the current chapter president.

Samuel Fall of Banning received a GED and scored in the top 2% national class rank. He plans to become, a nanoscale engineer specializing in MEMS (micro electromechanical systems). Currently Sam has a 4.0 GPA, is a Phi Theta Kappa public relations officer, and a Supplemental Instruction Leader for Intermediate Algebra at MSJC.

Stacie Macias of Lake Elsinore is a history major who will be transferring to Cal State San Marcos in the fall of 2012. After she finishes her education, Stacie hopes to publish in the history field and to become a history instructor, so that she can bring history alive for students as her professors have done for her.

Thomas Morrissey of Hemet currently holds a 3.692 GPA at Mt. San Jacinto Community College, and will attend CSU Fullerton this coming fall, where he will major in Screenwriting. He hopes to become an intern at Disney Studios as a story board writer and make quality films in the tradition of the company.
