QVCC Students Named to All-Connecticut Academic Team

Two Quinebaug Valley Community College students, Michaela Grimaldi of Plainfield and Stephen Jacobsen of Bolton, have been named to the All-Connecticut Academic Team and were honored at the State Capitol on Friday, April 6.

The All-Connecticut Academic Team recognizes outstanding scholarly achievements and leadership accomplishments of students enrolled in Connecticut’s community, technical, and junior colleges. It is sponsored by the Phi Theta Kappa honor society in 38 participating states.

Grimaldi, a graduate of Plainfield High School, is enrolled in the Pathways to Teaching Careers program. She is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a student ambassador, and treasurer of the Student Government Association. She plans to transfer to Eastern Connecticut State University to pursue a degree in elementary education.

Jacobsen is a Human Services major and graduate of the Learning Clinic. He is also a student ambassador and member of Phi Theta Kappa. His goal is to transfer to a four-year college and become a human services professional.
