Wor-Wic Community College students Kelly Hancock of Westover and Diana Mills of Delmar, Md., were recently named to the All-Maryland Academic Team.

Thirty-two students from 14 Maryland community colleges have been named to the All-Maryland Academic Team that recognizes academic excellence and community service of two-year college students. Selection is based on college transcripts, letters of recommendation, a biographical questionnaire and an essay.

The All-Maryland Academic Team is sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society (PTK), the Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC) and the Maryland Council of Community College Chief Executive Officers (MCCCCEO).

Hancock has a 4.0 grade point average and expects to receive her associate degree in general studies this May.

In addition, Hancock is a volunteer at Peninsula Regional Medical Center and a member of Cokesbury United Methodist Church in Pocomoke City.

Mills has a 3.95 grade point average and is expected to graduate from Wor-Wic this May with associate degrees in secondary education and general studies.
