Two Rogue Community College Students have earned positions on the 2012 Oregon Academic Team according to a press release from the marketing and community relations department of RCC. Peter Angstadt, president of RCC, handpicked the two honor students due to their academic success and service activities.
Teresa McCarty and Blayne Milburn will receive a scholarship worth $1,000 to use at any Oregon public university. Also, along with other chosen members from around the state, they will attend a reception in Salem with Governor John Kitzhaber, and Peter Angstadt.
McCarty worked as director of health, wellness, and diversity for RCC’s associated student government at Redwood Campus, while still maintaining a 3.7 GPA.
“I selected RCC because everyone I talked with said RCC is fantastic and has great teachers,” McCarty said in the release. “I feel like all my teachers here at RCC really care. They listen to what you need and are willing to work with you. I love being around these instructors.”
Milburn according to the release is a business management major and vice president of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society Somehow he still finds time to be a disabilities volunteer with Three Rivers School District and keep a 3.6 GPA.
“The smaller class sizes at Rogue are awesome,” said Milburn in the release. “RCC is one of the best community colleges in Oregon.”
