 Two students at County College of Morris, Emma Mendoza of Boonton, and Corey Anding of Newark, have been named as 2020 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) New Jersey All-State Academic Team members for their academic excellence, leadership and community service.

 Mendoza and Anding, along with several other students from across the state, have received this recognition from the New Jersey Council of County Colleges.

Traditionally, the Council holds a ceremony to recognize these scholars but this year due to COVID-19 their certificates and All-State Academic Team medals will be mailed to them.

CCM hopes to be able to hold a recognition ceremony perhaps later this year to recognize Mendoza, Anding and other outstanding students.

“Congratulations to Emma and Corey as two more examples of the terrific students at CCM and the great education that is offered,” said Freeholder Director Deborah Smith.

Mendoza has served as president of the County College of Morris Student Government Association and as a member of both PTK and Alpha Mu Gamma honor societies. She also has served on the leadership team for the Student Activities Programming Board, Alpha Mu Gamma and as a Student Representative to CCM’s College Council.

 Anding has served as president pro tempore of the Student Government Association and is a member of both the PTK and Alpha Mu Gamma honor societies. Additionally, he has served as a student representative on CCM’s College Council and the Student Affairs Committee.

Don Phelps, director of CCM’s Campus Life, refers to Mendoza and Anding as “two all-stars” on campus.

To be considered for membership in the PTK chapter at CCM, students must have a 3.5 or higher grade point average.

Congratulations to Emma and Corey.
