Peralta News – Cassandra Beverly, Merritt College Student

24 August 2011. 0 comments

Every year, Phi Theta Kappa honors the top 20 community college students nationwide with a $2500 scholarship to continue their education. A rigorous selection process narrows the 1600 students nominated by their professors to the final 20 honorees. Winners are selected based on a combination of academic achievement and community service.

This year Cassandra Beverly, a Paralegal Studies student from Merritt College, was one of the winners. She will use her scholarship to continue her education at University of San Francisco next year and plans to eventually pursue a Masters Degree in Public Administration so she can help others attain similar success. We at the Peralta Colleges are very proud of Cassandra’s achievement!
