ENTERPRISE – Every year, faculty and staff of Enterprise State Community College nominate two students to serve on the All-Alabama Academic Team. The criteria for selection is to choose students who “excel academically; demonstrate intellectual rigor in their course of study; show academic growth and potential; and use their two-year college education to better themselves, their college and their communities.” All nominees are presented to the national Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society for final selection.
This year’s ESCC All-Alabama Academic students were Macy Anne McIntosh and Matthew Skinner.
Macy Anne McIntosh is native of Jack, AL and a 2015 graduate of Zion Chapel High School. Maci has earned a 3.96 GPA at Enterprise State while serving as a tutor, Phi Theta Kappa, W.O.W team member, and volunteer for Relay for Life. After graduating from ESCC she plans to transfer to Troy University where she plans to study Elementary Education.
Matthew Skinner is a native of Hartford, AL and a 2015 graduate of Geneva County High School. Mathew currently boasts a 4.0 GPA at Enterprise State while serving as a W.O.W team member, SGA, Phi Theta Kappa, and Scholars Bowl. After graduating from ESCC, Matthew plans to transfer to Auburn University and major in Electrical Engineering. His goal is to become an engineer with Alabama Power.
On Thursday, April 13th both students traveled to Hoover, AL where they will met with other nominees and receive a night’s stay at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Hotel and Spa. On Friday April 14th, a special luncheon was held in their honor where they were recognized by the Chancellor of the Alabama Community College System, Mr. Jimmy Baker. Each of them will also receive a $1,000 academic scholarship from the All-Alabama Academic Team Foundation.
