Eight Broward College Students Recognized on 2018 All-Florida Academic Team

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (March 2, 2018) –  The 2018 All-Florida Academic Team winners were announced by the Florida College System, which recognizes outstanding students across the state for their academic achievements, leadership skills and service to the community.

Eight Broward College students were distinguished as 2018 All-USA Academic Team recipients including Tamarsha Brown, Wicliff Fleurizard, Maria Jose Delgadillo, Kemari Loy, Migaheld Maxinau, Aliri MijareUribe, Medjyna Moreau and Kezia Moros-Achong.  Each year Broward College nominates exceptional students to the competition, which is sponsored by USA Today and the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society.

“This is a great achievement,” explained Interim Director of the Honors College Quakish Liner. “These students have proven themselves among the academic elite. This award opens the door for additional scholarships and improves their resume for opportunities like transfers and internships.”

To qualify for selection students were required to complete an application, provide transcripts and a letter of recommendation. Submissions were reviewed by College deans prior to an interview by campus presidents. Approved applications were forwarded to the All-USA Academic Team competition for consideration.

“Broward College is honored to be represented among the All-Florida Academic Team and extremely proud of the achievements of these incredibly talented students,” said Broward College President J. David Armstrong, Jr. “Our students continually demonstrate the success of the college system. Their hard work highlights our mission and purpose and offers great motivation for what we do.”

The Florida College System will recognize the 2018 All-Florida Academic Team’s 132 students from across the state at an awards ceremony on Friday, April 6, 2018, in Tampa, Florida. For additional information on the event, visit the Florida College System website.
