Clarence Christian, Associate Professor of Social Science, is the director of the STCC Honors Program. He said Honors Week is designed to recognize and award student achievement in academics, community service, leadership and creative performance.
Recognition will be given to students who made the Dean's List, Phi Theta Kappa, Who's Who, All-American Scholars, Honors Academy Scholars, Student Government Association leaders and club leaders. Special recognition will be given to the STCC students who recently participated in the Tennessee Honors Conference at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
"Southwest Tennessee Community College was well represented at the Tennessee Honors Conference," Christian said. "All presentations were intellectually developed and professionally presented. In fact, all of our presenters have been accepted to give their presentations March 29-April 2 at the Southern Regional Honors Conference."
Four Honors students represented STCC at the
