South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) invites the entire state of Washington to celebrate the 27th annual All-Washington (All-WA) Academic Team Ceremony. The All-WA ceremony will honor 75 students from the state’s 34 community and technical colleges. It will be held on April 27 at 12 p.m. in Building 27 at SPSCC’s Olympia Campus and live-streamed on the SPSCC YouTube channel.
The All-WA Academic Team program recognizes and honors our state’s finest higher education students: the individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to success in the classroom and in the communities in which they live. Their stories are often inspiring, sometimes surprising, and always reflective of the larger story of the state’s community and technical college students.
At the ceremony, this year’s team of 75 students will receive a KeyBank scholarship and All-WA recognition. Other special scholarships awarded at the ceremony include the WSECU Top 16, the Association of College Trustees scholarships, the New Century Transfer and Workforce scholarships, the Coca-Cola Academic Team scholarship, and more.
SPSCC extends its gratitude to Phi Theta Kappa, KeyBank, WSECU, the Washington State Association of College Trustees, the Washington Association of Community and Technical Colleges, and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges for their longtime support and sponsorship of this program.
In his proclamation, Governor Jay Inslee invites everyone in our state to observe April 27, 2023, as All-Washington Academic Team Day. Join in the celebration by using #AllWA2023.
