The Alpha Kappa Psi Foundation is pleased to announce the eight team captains for this year’s All-AKPsi Academic Team. From the 505 juniors and seniors named to the team last month, these eight co-captains have been selected to represent the team and will each receive $250 educational grants from the foundation:
- Cori Boyce, Miami (Ohio) ’09
- Jessica Ferrucci, Binghamton ’09
- Truitt Jeter, South Carolina ’10
- Hannah Miles, Missouri ’09
- Kari Notton, Illinois ’09
- Benjamin Rascoe, Miami (Ohio) ’08
- Allison Schelble, Washington (St. Louis) ‘10
- Joe Viviano, Kansas ‘10
Each year the All-AKPsi Academic Team honors individuals who balance academics with leadership in their chapters and communities. To apply, students need to be juniors or seniors and have GPAs of 3.50 or higher. This year’s application deadline was in November and team members were announced in December.
The 2011-12 roster of 505 members (scroll down to see the December 16 announcement) is an all-time record, breaking the previous record of 275 which was set last year.
The foundation extends its gratitude to this year’s selection committee of past regional directors who had the monumental task of narrowing the list of 505 individuals down to eight team captains: Jessica Hill, Arizona State ’96-Life; Derek Hunter, Murray State ’01-Life; LaTonya Jackson, Alabama State ’03; Pam Miksell, Iowa ’96-Life; Yakov Shenkman, Pennsylvania ’03; Brendan Sherry, Virginia Tech ’97-Life; Melissa Stowe, Iowa State ’98-Life; and Vonda Willis, Texas State ’89-Life.
