CHIPOLA PHI THETA KAPPA WINS INTERNATIONAL AWARDS

MARIANNA The Chipola Junior College Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa picked up three major awards at the PTK International Convention in Denver, March 29-31.

The Awards honor individual, chapter and region accomplishments in the disciplines of the Society's four Hallmarks: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship.

Andrea Bruner, Chipola's PTK Chapter president, won a Distinguished Chapter President Award based for her leadership, involvement in chapter programs, association with fellow officers and enthusiasm for the Society's Hallmarks. Bruner was one of ten chosen from among 500 applicants for the honor.

Steven Hall, Chipola's PTK vice-president, won a Distinguished Chapter Officer Award for his leadership, involvement in chapter programs, association with fellow scholars and enthusiasm for the Society's Hallmarks. Hall was one of only 25 students chosen from among 500 applicants for the award.

The Chipola PTK Chapter (Nu Chi) was named one of the Top 25 Chapters in Fellowship in recognition of superior programs in the Hallmark of Fellowship. Chipola was chosen from among 500 chapters in the category.

Chipola PTK faculty adviser Jody Spooner, says his students were pleasantly surprised by the honors. "Our students did some great work this year with no thought of being recognized. We've got some great people in PTK who recognize the importance of sharing their talents with others." 

Chipola's PTK members worked on numerous service projects including Toys for Tots, AIDS Awareness and Water Conservation. Earlier this year, the group sponsored the first-ever Honors Day for High School Juniors on the CJC campus. 

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for two-year colleges, with more than 1,200 chapters at community, technical and junior colleges in all 50 states, Canada, Germany, Japan and U.S. territories abroad.

The PTK Convention is the largest convention of college students in the nation. Thousands of students gather at the convention every year to listen to exciting speakers, participate in workshops, honor each other's hard work and celebrate membership.                                          ####

Chipola's Bruner named USA Today 1st Team All-American

MARIANNA-- Chipola Junior College sophomore Andrea Bruner has received national attention in recent weeks.

Bruner's notoriety began in March when she was named to the First Team All-Florida Academic Team. She also was selected as a 2001 Centennial Scholar--the highest-scoring student from Florida in the All-USA Academic Team competition.

She is president of the Chipola Junior College Phi Theta Kappa organization that captured three national honors at the recent national Phi Theta Kappa meeting in Denver. She was one of 25 presidents tapped for a Distinguished Chapter President Award from among 500 chapters.

Bruner received a standing ovation for her keynote address at the 2001 All-Florida Academic Team State Board of Community Colleges' annual awards ceremony at the FSU Turnbull Center on April 3. Rod Risley, Executive Director of Phi Theta Kappa International, presented the 2001 Centennial Award, a $2,000 Scholarship to Bruner, who was Florida's top team member. 

On April 5, Bruner represented the state of Florida at the American Association of Community Colleges Meeting in Chicago. That same day, Bruner was featured in the USA Today newspaper along with 20 other top community college students in the country.

At a press conference at Chipola on April 6, CJC president Dr. Dale O'Daniel offered statistics to show the importance of her honor. "Andrea is the very best of Florida's 370,000 community college students. And she was named in the top 20 of the 10.4 million community college students in the entire country. She is truly rare." Bruner thanked her parents and teachers for their support. “I really wanted to go somewhere more challenging, or so I thought, but it (Chipola) has turned out to be very challenging,” says Burner, 20, who is grateful now for the personal attention she has received at Chipola.

Bruner is the daughter of Sally and John Bruner of Chipley. A 1999 valedictorian of Chipley High School, she is a Florida Academic Scholar and a Florida Top Scholar. She is president of Phi Theta Kappa, and is active in Science Club, Mu Alpha Theta, and the CJC Honors Program.

She plans to attend the University of Florida, to pursue a major in Microbiology. Her plans include medical school and a specialization in obstetrics.

INTERNSHIPS AVAILABLE TO AREA TEACHERS

MARIANNA--Applications are currently being accepted for the Summer Teacher Internship Program sponsored by the School-to-Work and Tech Prep programs at Chipola Junior College. 

One and two-week internships are available to middle school, high school and post-secondary teachers. Interning teachers will earn $100 per day for an eight-hour day. Applications will be accepted through May 7.

Last summer Dirk Shores stepped out of his Marianna Middle School math classroom to serve a one-week internship at Melvin Engineering. Shores says, “It was a great experience.  Observing a professional company firsthand gave me the experience to relate a technical skill to an academic concept. I also learned about the important aspect of the employer-employee relationship.”

Upon review of Shores' internship portfolio, he was selected to attend the Model Schools Conference this summer in Lake Buena Vista at Walt Disney World. 

For information about the Summer Teacher Internship Program, call Judy Riviere or Mandy Suggs at 718-2354.

FORMER CJC PLAYER DRAFTED BY WNBA

                MARIANNA--Former Chipola basketball player Levys Torres on April 20 became the first Chipola grad to be drafted by the Women's National Basketball Association.

                Torres who played for Florida State University her junior and senior years, was picked by the Miami Sol in the third round. She is only the third FSU player to ever be drafted by the WNBA. Her FSU teammate Brooke Wyckoff went in the second round to the Orlando Miracle.

                Torres was picked fifth in the third round and 37th overall. As a senior at FSU, she averaged 10.8 points per game and 10.0 rebounds a game and led FSU to the NCAA Tournament. The 6'4 Colombia native was FSU's tallest player where she started all 31 games at center.  She averaged 12.7 points per game over the last 14 games of the year and set an FSU record with 24 rebounds against Coppin State (12/28/00).

                "I never really thought about realistically playing in the WNBA until this year," said Torres. "During the season I started to see the difference in my level of play compared to last year and I was hoping that this would happen. Whenever anybody asked me what team I would want to play for, I always said Miami. When I found out that Miami had drafted me I couldn't believe it. It is just a great day for me."

                Torres earned third team All ACC honors and was one of the ACC's leading rebounders, ranking third overall. She led the ACC in offensive rebounds (121) and was third in defensive rebounds (189). She shot 54 percent from the field and was third on the team playing 29.9 minutes per contest. She had a career-high five blocks against Iowa State in the NCAA Tournament. She set a new FSU record with 24 rebounds in the Coppin State game and also scored a career-high 24 points in the game. She led the team in rebounding 21 times and had nine double-doubles.

                Torres was MVP at Chipola Junior College where she averaged 20.0 points, 15.0 rebounds, 5.0 steals and 3.0 assists in the 1996-97 and 1997-98 seasons. She was CJC's leading rebounder in both her freshman and sophomore years and ranked third on the squad in scoring. She earned first team All-Panhandle Conference honors in 1997-98.

                Torres is an information studies major who was named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll. The 23 year-old was born and raised in Colombia, South America where she led the Colombian National Team to the South American Championship title in the summer of 1997.
