All-Maine Academic Team Members Honored
April 1, 2013
Two honor students at Central Maine Community College (CMCC), Michael Cloutier and Jennifer Woodard, have been named to the Maine Community College System (MCCS) All-Maine Academic Team. They were among 14 students honored recently at a ceremony in Augusta hosted by the MCCS Board of Trustees. Each recipient will receive a $500 scholarship.
The All-Maine Academic Team is part of the national Phi Theta Kappa program, an international honor society for two-year colleges. Students are nominated and selected for the team by their college based on outstanding academic achievement, leadership, and service. The All-Maine Academic Team program is co-sponsored by Camden National Bank, Bangor Daily News, Creative Awards of Scarborough, Phi Theta Kappa, and the MCCS.
Michael Cloutier of Auburn, a Human Services major, is a member of Phi Theta Kappa and a recipient of the Annette Brown and TRiO scholarships. He is one of only 50 students nationwide named a Coca-Cola All-State Community College Bronze Scholar and will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Cloutier hopes to continue his education and pursue a career as a substance abuse counselor.
Jennifer Woodard, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, is a Phi Theta Kappa member and a Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise scholarship recipient. An Early Childhood Education major, Woodard plans to continue her education to become an elementary school teacher. She lives in Turner with her family.
