Kansas will salute 49 top community college scholars for their academic accomplishments in an award ceremony Thursday, Feb. 18 in Topeka, including two from Seward County Community College/Area Technical School in Liberal, Kansas. Representing the 19 Kansas Community Colleges, these scholars have been named to the 2011 All-Kansas Academic Team, sponsored by the international headquarters of Phi Theta Kappa international honor society, the Kansas Association of Community College Trustees and the Kansas Council of Community College Presidents and the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. Each is also a nominee for the 2011 All-USA Academic Team, sponsored by USA Today, Phi Theta Kappa and the American Association of Community Colleges. Kelsey Darnell, an Accounting major from Liberal, and Gwen Friesen, a Liberal Arts major from Moscow, were selected for this honor. The criteria used in making the decisions included academic rigor, grade point average, involvement in campus and community activities, and demonstration of outstanding moral character. Darnell, who graduated form Liberal High school in 2009, was involved in Campus Messengers for Christ, Kappa Beta Delta and Phi Theta Kappa, where she serves as president last fall. She transferred to Kansas State University this spring to major in accounting. Friesen, grew up in Inman, Kansas, and moved with her family to Moscow in 1996.
