SMCC All-Arizona Academic Team Scholar and Coca-Cola Award Recipient, Isabel Alcazar
South Mountain Community College student and Phi Theta Kappa member, Isabel Alcazar was nominated for the All-Arizona Academic Team Scholarship and was placed on the first team. This scholarship will award her with four semesters of tuition waivers to any one of the three Arizona public universities and an additional $1,000 for being placed on the first team. In the Spring of 2016, Isabel was inducted into Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), an international honor society. Later, she was elected as PTK Alpha Eta Delta’s Chapter President, where she organizes and oversees projects both on campus and within the community. In addition to her work with PTK, she has a very active role in the honors college. After being awarded the All-Arizona Scholarship, she became one of only 50 students in the U.S. to receive the Coca-Cola Gold Award. Isabel will be attending the international PTK conference in Kansas City, Missouri to represent SMCC’s chapter of PTK and to be recognized for her award. Izabel will transfer to ASU this Fall and intends to earn a Bachelors Degree in Molecular Biosciences and Biotechnology. She aspires to go to medical school and become a doctor.
