Five Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) students have earned spots on the prestigious 2022 Phi Theta-Kappa (PTK) All-California Academic Team.

The Community College League of California made the announcement on Tuesday. The League only chose 114 students from across the 116 California Community Colleges to rank on the first, second and third academic teams.

MSJC's Breeanna Fleener and Amy Westen earned First Team honors; Christian Menera achieved Second Team honors; and Maribel Avila Flores and Irma Cruz-Dogan attained Third Team honors. 

PTK recognizes the academic achievement of college students and provides opportunities for its members to grow as scholars and leaders. Established in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa has a presence on almost 1,300 community college campuses in 11 nations.

“The League would like to extend our congratulations to the 2022 PTK Winners,” said Dr. Larry Galizio, President and CEO of the Community College League of California. “We are proud to sponsor this award and provide all team members a medallion and certificate recognizing their accomplishments.”

Mt. San Jacinto College serves nearly 24,000 students annually in a district covering 1,700 square miles from the San Gorgonio Pass to Temecula, with campuses in San Jacinto, Menifee, Banning and Temecula.
