CCAC Students Named to the PACCC 2023 All-Pennsylvania Academic Team
The Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is proud to announce the CCAC students honored by the Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges (PACCC) as part of the organizations 29th Annual All-Pennsylvania Academic Team.
CCAC's 2023 student awardees include workforce pathway scholars Nicole Galla, Shawn Klocek and Justin Maga and college transfer scholars Uday Sharma, Maximos Wolfley, Bridget Sluka, Elena Dupaly, Sydney Hubbard, Jessica Wheeler, Owen Chaffin and Alexis Clawson.
This remarkable group joins community college students statewide who have achieved academic excellence and demonstrated a commitment to their colleges and communities. They will be honored this month during the PACCC annual conference awards dinner on March 27.
Transfer students must have completed at least 36 credits at a community college and must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher to be considered for these awards. Workforce students must have a minimum of 12 college-level credit hours at a community college and a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Both scholarships are granted by the Coca-Cola Educational Foundation and are anticipated to be announced in April.
