Irving, Texas. March 9, 2019

North Lake College (NLC) student Ange Zigre was named the New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar for Texas and selected as a member of the 2019 All-USA Academic Team. He will receive over $7,000 in scholarships.

Zigre is one of 20 students nationwide chosen for the All-USA Academic Team based on his outstanding intellectual achievement, leadership, and community and campus engagement. Acceptance in the All-USA program is widely recognized as the most prestigious academic honor for students attending associate degree-granting institutions.

Over 2,000 students were nominated from more than 1, 200 college campuses across the country. Only one New Century Pathway Scholar is selected from each state. 

"We congratulate Ange for receiving these highly competitive scholarships that recognize outstanding achievements both inside and outside the classroom,” said Phi Theta Kappa’s President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner. “Scholarship programs like these create meaningful pathways for students to succeed by putting completion within financial reach.” 

The All-USA Academic Team is sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group, with additional support provided by Phi Theta Kappa and the American Association of Community College (AACC).
