The Technical College of the Lowcountry has named Port Royal resident Jill Egbert and Hilton Head Island resident Jovonn “Butch” Sumter to the S.C. Phi Theta Kappa Academic All-State Team. PTK is a national honor society for two-year college students. Both were recently recognized during a state-wide ceremony at the Statehouse.
Sumter was also named a 2013 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar. Each Bronze Scholar receives a $1,000 scholarship. 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.
