May 26, 2015

Wor-Wic Community College students Logan Duncan of Berlin and Jasmine Murray of Federalsburg were recently named to the All-Maryland Academic Team, a competition sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) international honor society that recognizes academic excellence and community service of two-year college students. Duncan and Murray were two of 17 students in Maryland to make the first team.

An honors student with a 4.0 grade point average, Duncan is taking the prerequisite courses she needs to enter Wor-Wic’s nursing program. After completing her degree at Wor-Wic, she plans to transfer to Salisbury University (SU) to obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

Murray was this year’s student speaker at commencement. She graduated with an associate degree in elementary education/generic special education PreK-12 and plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in elementary education at SU this fall.

Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. The Alpha Nu Omicron chapter was chartered at Wor-Wic in September of 1987. Advisors of the chapter include Dr. Lynn M. Derickson, associate professor of nursing, Burma Freeman, assistant professor of physical science, Terry Thompson, professor of biological science, Jennifer L. Tusing, assistant professor of Spanish, and Dr. Coleen M. Weil, professor of nursing.
