HONOLULU — Kapiʻolani Community College student Shannon Phenix has been named one of 50 students to receive the 2006 Phi Theta Kappa National Dean‘s List Scholarship. Community college students from states and nations hosting Phi Theta Kappa chapters were chosen to receive this award, which includes a $250 scholarship.

The National Dean‘s List is a prestigious compilation of honor students in two-year and four-year degree programs. By virtue of membership in Phi Theta Kappa, all new inductees are automatically nominated for the National Dean‘s List. Recipients of the National Dean‘s List Scholarship are chosen by random search.

"The National Dean‘s List Scholarship rewards students who have demonstrated academic excellence and a commitment to improving their communities," explained Phi Theta Kappa Executive Director Rod A. Risley. "Shannon exemplifies the outstanding students enrolled not only at Kapiʻolani Community College, but at community colleges everywhere."

Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, headquartered in Jackson, Miss., is the largest honor society in American higher education with 1,200 chapters on two-year and community college campuses in all 50 of the United States, Canada, Germany, the Republic of Palau, the British Virgin Islands and U.S. territorial possessions. More than two million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918, with approximately 100,000 students inducted annually.
