The students, listed with their program of study and their hometown, are:

  • Transfer Pathway Scholars:
    • Lauren Jones, Nursing, West Fargo, N.D.
    • Morgan Vosberg, Liberal Arts – Business Administration, Sartell, Minn.
  • Workforce Pathway Scholars:
    • Logan Mammenga, Business Management, Breckenridge, Minn.
    • Marlee Schweitzer, Dental Hygiene, Aberdeen, S.D.

The All-North Dakota Academic Team is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa and the Coca-Cola Foundation and is comprised of scholars from each of the community colleges in the state. Workforce Pathway Scholars plan to begin their careers immediately upon graduation, and Transfer Pathway Scholars plan to continue their education at a four-year institution after completing their studies at a community college.

“It is with pride that I am able to nominate these students to the 2023 North Dakota Academic All-State Team. Through their efforts in the classroom, and in leadership roles on campus and in their communities, they have demonstrated the qualities necessary to be successful in the future,” said Jeff Hart, NDSCS Phi Theta Kappa Advisor.

The students will be recognized at an awards luncheon held at Bismarck State College in Bismarck, N.D. Tuesday, March 7, 2023.
