All-Oregon Academic Team Awards Luncheon

The All-Oregon Academic Team (AOAT) Awards Luncheon was held at Chemeketa Community College; however, the day didn’t start there! Our two students, Holly Kolodziejczak and Sabrina Piccolo, started their day at the State Capitol Rotunda for a photograph with Governor Kate Brown. Then they travelled over to Chemeketa CC for the lunch, and  I met up with them there. President Marge Hamilton, Vice President Paul Jarrell, Board of Education Member Susie Johnston, and Director of Public Affairs Brett Rowlett all attended the event.

The awards luncheon is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa and the Oregon Community College Association.

It began with a buffet lunch followed by the presentation of the AOAT members who came to the stage one college at a time. President Hamilton presented Holly and Sabrina with their medallions.

We then listened to three amazing student speakers. Finally, we wrapped up with a few closing remarks and headed back to Eugene. Lane Community College was well-represented by these outstanding students! Thank you, Holly and Sabrina!
