Panola College students Nash Coultas and Hieu Le have been named to the All Texas Academic Team for Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society for community college students. Both will be recognized at a ceremony and reception at The University of Texas at Dallas on Wednesday, April 1.

Coultas is from Carthage. In addition to Phi Theta Kappa, Coultas was actively involved in the History Club at Panola. Le, from Marshall, graduated from Panola College and is now working on bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering at LeTourneau University.

Panola College Phi Theta Kappa faculty advisors nominated Coultas and Le, and they were among 100 students selected from 50 Texas community college districts.

“Members of the All Texas Academic Team represent the best and brightest students who excel in academics, leadership, and service,” said Emily Zabcik, faculty sponsor. “We at Panola are so proud of this accomplishment. This is the first time in my 10 years that we have had students be awarded this honor. I cannot wait to see what these young men accomplish in the future.”

Phi Theta Kappa faculty sponsors are math professors Zabcik, Roberta Collinsworth and Chasity Klingler.
