Earlier this month, Sangeetha Punnam, a Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School (SCVTHS) Academy for Health and Medical Sciences senior from Bridgewater, was one of 20 college students in the country to be named to the All-USA Academic Team. Punnam was eligible for the recognition because she also attends Raritan Valley Community College classes as part of the Academy for Health and Medical Sciences Program.
Punnam was selected to be part of the All-USA Academic Team for her academic excellence, leadership qualities, and service beyond the classroom to benefit society. As a selected member of the All-USA Academic Team, Punnam will be recognized at the annual President’s Breakfast held during the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Convention in May. Additionally, Punnam will receive a $5,000 scholarship and a commemorative medallion. The All-USA Academic Team program is sponsored by Cengage with additional support provided by the American Association of Community Colleges and Phi Theta Kappa.
"I am honored to have been named a member of the 2022 All-USA Academic Team, which will help support my future education,” stated Sangeetha Punnam. “It was truly inspiring to meet the other recipients and learn about their work. Thank you to Cengage, the Coca-Cola Scholar Foundation, Phi Theta Kappa, and the American Association of Community Colleges for making this award possible!"
