Wallace-Dothan students named to All-Alabama Academic Team


Eufaula, Ala. – Wallace Community College-Sparks Campus students Tristan Andrews and Jeneciah Starling represented Wallace on the 2019 All-Alabama Academic Team. The two were honored at a banquet in Prattville, Alabama on April 19 with other team members selected from across the state.

Forty-six students from Alabama Community College System (ACCS) institutions make up the All-Alabama Academic Team.  Members of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the international honor society for community colleges, select two students from each of Alabama’s community colleges. Both Andrews and Starling received a $1,000 scholarship.

Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students by providing opportunities for leadership development and service. To apply for selection to the All-Alabama Academic Team, students must submit applications to their community college’s Phi Theta Kappa organization. Applicants must have a minimum 3.5 GPA.

“These outstanding students are driven, focused, and committed to improving their own lives, as well as the lives of those around them,” said Daymesha Reed, WCC director of student life.  “They serve as role models in their colleges and communities.”

Andrews, who has a 4.0 GPA, plans to transfer to the University of Alabama or Troy University to earn a bachelor’s degree in History. He would like to work at a museum or in archaeological research.

Starling has a 3.839 GPA. She plans to attend Alabama A&M University and earn a Master’s Degree in Social Work. Her goal is to mend broken families. Both recipients graduated from Eufaula High School.
