Two of the best and brightest members of the Class of 2013 at County College of Morris (CCM) have been recognized for their academic achievements and community involvement with the award of All-USA Academic Team certificates and appointment to the New Jersey All-State Academic Team.
Sean Moore of Boonton and Chaz Weiner of Flanders were two of 40 community college students from New Jersey to be selected for the All-State Academic Team, sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society and Coca-Cola Foundation. As part of that honor, they also were awarded All-USA Community College Certificates.
Phi Theta Kappa is the top honor society for community college students. All-State Academic Team members typically are members of the honor society. Each of New Jersey’s 19 community colleges may nominate graduating students for the All-USA Community College Academic Team each year. Students nominated to the national team are automatically named to the All-State Community College Academic Teams.
Moore graduates from CCM Thursday, May 23, with his associate’s degree in liberal arts. At CCM, Moore served as vice president of leadership of Phi Theta Kappa and as an active member of the Student Government Association. In April, he was selected as one of only 73 recipients nationwide of the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship, which will provide him up to $30,000 per year to pursue his bachelor’s degree. His goal is to become a leader in the areas of human rights and labor law to help make life better for others.
Weiner, age 16, recently earned his high school diploma through the college and now will receive his associate’s degree in business administration. At CCM, he served as an active member of Phi Theta Kappa, as senator of the Student Government Association and as a liaison to the CCM Disability Awareness Committee. He will be attending the honors college at the University of Arizona. His goal is to show others with disabilities that great things are possible and to one day work with a National Football League team as a general manager.
