Hinds CC student named 2015 Coca-Cola Silver Scholar

web_Shanita_Greer_NAHC

Shanita Greer of Jackson, a nursing student at Hinds Community College’s Jackson Campus-Nursing/Allied Health Center, has been named a 2015 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Silver Scholar. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver and 50 Bronze Scholars, and providing nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. Each Silver Scholar receives a $1,250 scholarship and a special medallion.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society administers the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Program and recognizes Coca-Cola Community College scholars during All-State Community College Academic Team Recognition ceremonies held in 38 states. Student scholars also receive recognition locally during ceremonies held on campus and internationally for those who are able to attend Phi Theta Kappa’s Annual Convention.

Greer hopes to eventually work in the neonatal or pediatric intensive care unit and continue her education to eventually earn a doctoral degree in nursing practice. She is married with two children and is actively involved in her children’s schools as well as her church. She is a President’s Scholars with a 4.0 grade point average. She is a member of Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society and Who’s Who Among Students in American Community and Junior Colleges.

Community college presidents or their designated nominators may submit no more than two nominations per campus for this award. An independent panel of judges considers outstanding academic rigor, grade point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service in the selection process.

“We thank the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for their vote of confidence in community college students by investing in their futures,” said Dr. Rod Risley, Executive Director of Phi Theta Kappa. “Their support is especially welcome during this challenging economic climate, as more and more community college students need additional resources to help them complete their degrees.”

“The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial assistance to outstanding students at community colleges,” said J. Mark Davis, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa and make it possible for deserving students to achieve their educational goals.”

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, headquartered in Jackson, is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1,285 chapters on two-year and community college campuses in all 50 of the United States, Canada, Germany, Peru, the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the British Virgin Islands, the United Arab Emirates and U.S. territorial possessions. More than 3 million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918, with approximately 134,000 students inducted annually.

Hinds CC Vicksburg instructor wins national PTK award

 

Phi Theta Kappa board member Dan Bailey, a former Mosal Scholar, presents Dr. Sarah K. Nichols with a 2014 Mosal Award.

Phi Theta Kappa board member Dan Bailey, a former Mosal Scholar, presents Dr. Sarah K. Nichols with a 2014 Mosal Award.

Hinds Community College employee Dr. Sarah K. Nichols of Vicksburg received one of two 2014 Mosal Awards during NerdNation 2014, Phi Theta Kappa’s Annual Convention in Orlando April 24-26.

Nichols is Quality Enhancement Plan director, chair of the Psychology Department and coordinator of student organizations at Hinds Community College’s Vicksburg-Warren Campus.  She received a $5,000 stipend for her personal professional development.

She also received a commemorative medallion in addition to the funds to complete her proposed project.

Mosal Awards, named for the PTK’s late executive director emeritus, Dr. Margaret Mosal, are presented to faculty advisers with at least five years of service who have submitted project proposals. Only outstanding, well-reasoned and intellectually substantive proposals are selected by a panel of scholars for funding.

Nichols received the Mosal Scholarship for her proposal, “An Autobiographical Case Study of Nature vs. Nurture Through the Eyes of an Adoptee,” which will allow her to research her biological parents and, through that journey, garner information about the roles nature and nurture play in human development. She will share what she learns with her Human Growth and Development students.
