FVCC Student Named 2018 New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar

Ezra Llewellyn is one of only 50 students nationwide chosen for the honor

Flathead Valley Community College student Ezra Llewellyn was recently named a 2018 New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar by Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), a national honor society dedicated to recognizing the academic achievements of community college students. Llewellyn was selected for the award based upon his score in the All-USA Academic Team competition, along with his leadership, service and other significant endeavors.  Approximately 2,000 students were nominated from more than 1,600 college campuses nationwide. Only one student per state was selected to receive the award.

Llewellyn serves as the president of FVCC’s chapter of PTK, vice president of a regional PTK chapter and business manager for FVCC Student Government. He will graduate from FVCC this spring with an A.S. degree and will transfer to Montana State University in the fall to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Management Systems Engineering with an emphasis on business management.

Llewellyn and the other New Century Transfer Pathway Scholars were recognized at the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Convention in Dallas on April 30. Each awardee received a $2,250 scholarship.  The New Century Transfer Pathway Scholars program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, PTK and AACC.
