LBCC students Jon Calhoun and Fredrick Whitman have been named to the 2011 All-Oregon Academic Team.
The Oregon Community College Association, in partnership with Phi Theta Kappa, recognizes outstanding students from each of Oregon’s 17 community colleges yearly.
Nominated students will be honored at a luncheon with Governor John Kitzhaber in April, where the governor will present each student with a plaque from the OCCA. Students also receive a $1,000 scholarship from the university they plan to attend after graduation from LBCC.
Whitman, an Albany resident and social science major, plans to transfer to Oregon State University to complete his bachelor’s degree. He is an honor roll student and serves on the LBCC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.
Calhoun, a North Powder, Oregon resident and agriculture business and management major, plans to transfer to Kansas State University to complete his bachelor’s degree. He serves as vice president of the LBCC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and as a volunteer for Operation Homefront.
