Congratulations to our four members of this year’s All Oregon Academic Team! PTK explains on its website that the purpose of the all-state teams is to recognize “high achieving college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society.” Our four student members of Oregon’s team definitely meet those criteria!
