Two Central Arizona College (CAC) students have been selected to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society All-Arizona Academic Team.

All-Arizona students demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service, that extends beyond the classroom to benefit society. Students are nominated by their community college and submit their application to be considered for this prestigious award through the Phi Theta Kappa International Honorary organization. Phi Theta Kappa conducts three rounds of judging. The Arizona Board of Regents awards scholarships and tuition waivers to those selected for Arizona's three state universities: Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University or the University of Arizona. Scholarships cover resident tuition for 10 consecutive undergraduate semesters or 60 credits (which ever the student meets first).

All-Arizona Academic Team Scholars were recognized during a virtual ceremony on March 4. Shaniya Deo and Alexsondra Nathan from the San Tan Valley Campus were the recipients.

Shaniya Deo: As a student at the San Tan Campus, Deo volunteers with Phi Theta Kappa and The National Society of Leadership and Success. She plans to transfer to Arizona State University to complete a bachelor's degree in Biochemistry focusing on medicinal chemistry. Her ultimate goal is to earn a doctorate degree in organic chemistry. Her career goal is to work as an academic researcher.

Alexsondra Nathan: Nathan is a student at the San Tan Campus. She serves as a current Phi Theta Kappa and student government officer, a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, and a member of the Equity Council. She is an elementary education major and plans to transfer to Arizona State University's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College to earn a bachelor's degree. Her career goal is to work as an elementary teacher, and she hopes to one day become a principal.

CAC students Demetria Carter from the Aravaipa Campus and Sesimphiwe Mbatha from the Signal Peak Campus were also recipients.
