BMCC students Hunter Weaver of Wallowa and Olivia West of Pendleton were among 41 community college students selected by the Oregon Community College Association (OCCA) to the team for their academic excellence, leadership, and community service, and many are members of Phi Theta Kappa, the nation’s community college honor society.

“I’d like to congratulate these outstanding student scholars for their achievements and the impending completion of their community college degrees,” said OCCA Executive Director Morgan Cowling. “As some of our very best and brightest, these students represent hope for a strong future in Oregon.”

Each year, Phi Theta Kappa, community college presidents, and community college state associations like OCCA sponsor All-State Community College Academic Team ceremonies in 37 participating states.

OCCA will host the All-Oregon Academic Team Luncheon April 15 at Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Ore., to honor AOAT students and their families. This year’s luncheon will be the first in-person since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AOAT luncheon’s keynote speaker is Senator Bill Hansell (R-Athena), OCCA’s 2022 Howard Cherry Award winner for Outstanding Community College Advocate.
