Aims Community College students Carrie Frederickson and Daniel Ruiz were honored at the Phi Theta Kappa All-Colorado Academic Team Luncheon and Recognition Ceremony in Denver on March 13.

Frederickson and Ruiz, nominated by Aims staff, each submitted a competitive essay to Phi Theta Kappa. Out of all the submissions, they were the two students selected to represent Aims at the state level with other Colorado community college students. They each received a backpack filled with giveaways as well as scholarship offers from Regis University and Johnson & Wales University.

Aims President Dr. Marsi Liddell and several other Congressional Representatives attended the ceremony.

Frederickson and Ruiz will also be honored at the Aims Phi Theta Kappa awards ceremony in May.

Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in higher education in the United States. It recognizes the academic achievement of two-year college students and provides opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and services.
