Four individuals were selected by committee to represent Beaufort County Community College at the state level as part of the Phi Theta Kappa All-USA Community College Academic Team.

This award recognizes high achieving two-year college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society. As part of their recognition, each student is awarded a $250 scholarship.
