Trio of Minnesota West students nominated for All-Minnesota Academic Team
The students will compete for over $41M to be awarded in scholarships
WORTHINGTON — Three Minnesota West Community & Technical College students were selected to represent the college on the All-Minnesota Academic Team.
Minnesota West Faculty nominated the students based on the responses they provided on the Phi Theta Kappa Fall Scholarship application. The awards recognize students in both transfer and workforce programs.
The three selected students are Jose Jimenez (Workforce Pathway); Lilly Mahlberg (Transfer Pathway at the Worthington campus); and Sarah Kraft (Workforce Pathway at the Granite Falls campus).
The 2023 All-Minnesota Academic Team consists of outstanding students throughout the state who attend a Minnesota Community and Technical College. Being nominated for the All-Minnesota Academic Team allows eligibility to compete for awards of over $41 million in addition to national and statewide recognition.
Members of the All-Minnesota Team selected as All-USA team members and/or New Century scholars will be notified separately at a future date.
As a member of the All-Minnesota Academic Team, the nominees are invited to attend the All-Minnesota Academic Team Recognition Luncheon March 24, in the Rainforest Auditorium at Como Zoo & Conservatory, St. Paul.
During the recognition event, the nominees will receive an All-Minnesota Academic Team medal and certificate, and be listed in the 2022-23 Team Program.
