Southeast Technical student Isaiah Reidel nominated to All-USA Community College Academic Team
Winona, MN (January 19, 2016) -- Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical is proud to announce that Isaiah Reidel, a Winona campus student, has been nominated to the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) honor society's All-USA Community College Academic Team.
The nomination recognizes high achieving two-year college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society.
PTK advisor Christopher Stout nominated Isaiah for the honor. "Isaiah is definitely one of the best students we have on campus. He's a hard worker and demonstrates exceptional determination and commitment," he says. "We appreciate how he sees everything all the way through to completion."
This year Isaiah is working on a PTK Honors in Action research project. Honors in Action is a process that provides opportunities to apply learning and practice real-world problem-solving by developing an in-depth, action-oriented project.
"Through this project Isaiah will strengthen both his leadership skills and research abilities," according to Christopher Stout.
PTK will announce the 20 finalists for the All-USA Academic Team in April 2016. Winners receive a $5,000 scholarship and are featured in USA Today.
