Submitted by:  Heather Herbert; Georgia Region of Phi Theta Kappa

Georgia Military College Augusta students Angie Lucas and Charles Fletcher were honored Thursday, March 12 at the Sloppy Floyd building in downtown Atlanta, overlooking the State Capitol.

The students were named to the All-Georgia Academic Team, sponsored by the Coca Cola Foundation and Phi Theta Kappa, and received medallions and commemorative certificates. In attendance were college administrators and students from across the state. 

To be eligible for this honor, students must be nominated by their college to the All-Georgia Academic Team.  Nominees are selected based on leadership qualities, community service and outstanding academic performance. Students nominated become eligible for the All-USA Academic Team, the Coca-Cola New Century Scholars Scholarship, and the All-USA Community College Academic Team and Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team scholarships. These programs award over $300,000 in scholarships every spring.
