WILBURTON, OK (April 22, 2014) – Three Eastern Oklahoma State College students were recently recognized for their academic success at a special luncheon hosted by the Oklahoma Association of Community Colleges at Rose State College.

Jeanette Gonzalez, a sophomore business administration major from Wilburton, and Chelsea Hofegartner, a sophomore forestry major from Canadian, were named to the All-Oklahoma Academic Team. Both students will receive an $800 cash scholarship to attend Oklahoma State University next year.

The All-Oklahoma Academic Team is co-sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and the Oklahoma Association of Community Colleges. Two students from each two-year college in Oklahoma are selected for the team based on outstanding academic performance and service to the college and community.

Gonzalez was also named a 2014 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Silver Scholar and will receive an additional $1,250 scholarship. Each year, community college students from across the nation compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze honors, with 50 scholarships available in each category. An independent panel of judges considers outstanding academic rigor, grade point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service in the selection process. The program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and is administered by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

In addition, Courtney Wall, a freshman nursing major from Wilburton, was also honored with a $1,000 scholarship from the Oklahoma Association of Community Colleges to use at Eastern for the 2014-2015 academic year.
