Edison Students Receive High Honors

Kerrie Josefovsky (L) of Piqua and Lucas Purdin (R) of Greenville were named to Phi Theta Kappa’s All-Ohio Third Academic Team.
Two Edison Community College students have been named to the 2015 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) All-Ohio Academic Team. Kerrie Josefovsky of Piqua and Lucas Purdin of Greenville have been selected as two of this year’s fifty-one statewide recipients.

To be eligible for the All-Ohio Academic Team, students are first nominated by their college president and must be eligible for graduation during the current academic year while holding a minimum 3.25 GPA. Winners are chosen on the foundation of academic performance, demonstration of leadership, and community service involvement.

Both Josefovsky and Purdin were named to the All-Ohio Academic Third Team and received cash scholarships of $250 and medallions, certificates, and pins made possible through the generosity of Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc.

Ms. Josefovsky is currently working toward an Associate of Art degree at Edison and is set to graduate in May. Upon graduating, she plans to attend the University of Dayton to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. Mr. Purdin is currently working toward becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant at Edison and will enter the workforce upon graduating.

“It is really quite an honor for two Edison Community College students to be named to the All-Ohio Third Team,” said Beka Lindeman, English Professor and PTK Advisor. “This is a big accomplishment for both Kerrie and Lucas. We are proud of their achievement.”

A special ceremony was held to recognize the All-Ohio Academic Teams in Columbus at the Statehouse Atrium. The All-Ohio Academic Team is co-sponsored by the Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC) and Phi Theta Kappa (PTK).
