Two Heartland Community College Students have been named to the Illinois All-Academic team for community colleges. 

Heartland students Joshua Crockett and Grace Golick have been named to the All-Illinois Academic Team by Phi Theta Kappa, the international two-year college honor society. Team members are chosen from among community college students across the state on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, and service work.

Joshua Crockett,All from LaSalle, Illinois, is the outgoing Student Trustee and former president of the Student Government Association at Heartland. Joshua was named to the Dean’s List and was recipient of the Heartland Community College scholarship for the Bloomington-Normal Economic Development Center’s annual One Voice Trip. He plans to transfer to Illinois State University to major in Political Science and minor in Legal Studies.

Grace Golick of Bloomington, Illinois, is the current president of the Heartland chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. As a Heartland student, Grace led multiple service learning projects in the Bloomington-Normal community and served as a College Tutor.

Both students will be recognized at the Heartland Board of Trustees Meeting held April 30 at 6:00 p.m. in Room 2012 of the Community Commons Building on the Raab Rd. campus in Normal.

The All-Illinois Academic Team is sponsored annually by Phi Theta Kappa, USA Today, and the American Association of Community Colleges. It  seeks to honor outstanding community college students who show intellectual rigor in their course of study, demonstrate academic, leadership, and civic growth and who extend their community college education to better themselves, their schools and their communities.
