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.

We at the Peralta Colleges are very proud of Cassandra’s achievement!
