For demonstrating intellectual rigor, academic achievement, leadership, and civic growth, five Massasoit Community College students were named to Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s All-Massachusetts Academic Team. Members of an elite list of 36 academics from across the state, the students were honored for their achievements during a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House yesterday in front of legislators and staff, community college presidents, and other members of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK).

PTK is the world’s largest and most prestigious honor society for two-year college students, and the Massachusetts Community Colleges Executive Office hosts the ceremony each year to recognize the highest academic achievers of the state’s 15 community college system.

With the most students named to PTK’s All-Massachusetts Academic Team in 2019, Massasoit Community College’s honorees are:

  • Kimberly Nashawaty of Pembroke
  • Camilla Miquelina of Brockton
  • Kinga Auguste of Sharon
  • Janaine Moraes of Weymouth
  • Cheryl Moneghan of Middleborough

Last year, four Massasoit students were named to the All-Massachusetts Academic Team, and the college was recently named a PTK 2019 REACH Chapter for excelling in the area of membership development.

Cam Do, of Bunker Hill Community College, was awarded PTK’s 2019 Coca Cola medal and named a 2019 All-USA Scholar.

Last month, Massasoit’s PTK officers and students, along with advisors Professor Zahara and Professor Chiano, attended the New England Regional Conference held at Asnuntuck Community College in Enfield, CT. At the conference, students participated in leadership sessions, heard from PTK headquarters representatives and recognized speakers, and attended an awards banquet. This year, Massasoit’s Alpha Kappa Upsilon Chapter participated in both the Honors in Action and the College Project Hallmarks, for which they were recognized. Moreover, the chapter received its Five Star Chapter achievement.
