Honors College student Alistair Glover has been catapulted into the spotlight once again as one of USA Today’s 2012 All-USA Community College Academic Team winners. Glover was one of 20 winners from more than 1,700 nominees and more than 800 colleges.
Alongside the other 19 winners, he was recognized at Phi Theta Kappa’s Presidents Breakfast during the annual convention of the American Association of Community Colleges in Orlando on April 23.
“I am honored to be the recipient of such an honor,” said Glover, a chemistry major at the Clearwater Campus. He was recognized in March as Florida’s 2012 Coca-Cola New Century Scholar, the state’s top award. As one of USA Today’s All-USA Community College Academic Team, he will receive textbook and academic scholarships.
“Meeting the other 19 recipients was a humbling experience; they were talented, motivated and possessed a passion for life that could be seen in their myriad accomplishments,” he said. “They will undoubtedly be the future leaders of America and I am privileged to be recognized among them.”
