Submitted on: 03-27-2012

Aims Community College student Donnie Schultz was recently named to the All Colorado Academic Team, which is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of community colleges. Schultz is one of 26 students across the state to be selected for the honor. Schultz was chosen for his academic achievement, leadership and community service. All Colorado Academic Team members received special recognition at a banquet in Denver on March 14 attended by college leaders and legislative representatives.

Schultz is an aspiring linguist who plans to earn a doctorate in theoretical linguistics and become a researcher and professor. Schultz serves on the college’s Peer Education Council, holds a work-study position and maintains a 4.0 GPA. This semester his research involves studying the Northern Coloradoan dialect of American English. He is also learning his ninth language, Swedish. Schultz graduates this spring from Aims as one of the first Aims students to earn the Honors designation.

“Aims has been the foundation of my higher education, and being selected for the All Colorado Academic Team really gave me encouragement for my future academic achievement,” Schultz said. “While I will miss this school and all the people who have supported me here, I am excited for future opportunities in higher education.”

Schultz plans to attend CU-Boulder this fall and continue his studies in linguistics.
