Anoka Technical College student, Kate Boyd, was recently named to the 2017 All-Minnesota Academic Team.

In honor of her achievement, Boyd recently received recognition at a luncheon held at the Gorecki Center at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph.

During the celebration, Boyd received the 2017 ALL-Minnesota Academic Team medal and certificate.

The ALL-Minnesota Academic Team celebration is an annual event in which two selected individuals participate from each two-year college that completes the bachelor’s scholarship application.

The student’s score in the national scholarship competition determines their ranking on the State Community College Academic Team.

Approximately 40 students received the award this year.

Nominees were selected based on biographical information, letters of recommendation, academic performance, demonstration of leadership, and campus and community service. Applicants also wrote an essay describing a specific educational experience while attending a two-year college that has transformed the student’s thinking about learning or the future.

Around 145 people including students, college faculty and staff from higher education institutions from around the state and higher education dignitaries attended the All-Minnesota Academic Team celebration.

Sponsored by the Minn-Wi-Kota Region of Phi Theta Kappa, participating colleges and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, the All-Minnesota Academic Team was introduced more than 20 years ago to honor two-year college students for their leadership, academic achievement, and community and college service.
