James Eldreth and Julie Fleming, two of Enterprise State Community College’s top academic students, have been nominated for the state of Alabama’s elite All-Alabama Academic Team.
Eldreth and Fleming were selected by ESCC faculty and staff to serve on the team. The criteria for selection across Alabama’s community colleges include 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.
ESCC’s students joined other nominees for a special luncheon held in their honor on April 19, 2019 by the Alabama Community College System. As a result of their nomination, Eldreth and Fleming will each receive a $1,000 academic scholarship from the All-Alabama Academic Team Foundation.
