The latest news from Northern Marianas College

Northern Marianas College pre-engineering student Ejay Aguirre has been recently named as a 2024 New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and will receive a $2,250 scholarship. Aguirre’s selection was based on the score he earned in the All-USA Academic Team competition, for which more than 2,200 applications were received this year. 

Top-scoring students from Canada, the United States, and sovereign nations with Phi Theta Kappa chapters are selected annually as New Century Transfer Pathway Scholars. The program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Foundation and the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, with additional support provided by the American Association of Community Colleges and Phi Theta Kappa.

"The honor of being named the New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar is a recognition of a great impact,” Aguirre said. “It symbolizes not just an achievement, but a commitment and a promise to make the most of every opportunity. This opportunity would not have been achievable without the help of Ms. Kaelani Demapan, Professor Willson Gaul, and the Phi Theta Kappa Society for providing a clean application process and opportunities of growth. I am deeply thankful for this promise and I look forward to the journey ahead!"

The student with the highest All-USA Academic Team application score in each state is named either a New Century Workforce Pathway Scholar or a New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar. Students nominated for the Workforce Pathway should plan to enter the workforce after completing a certificate or associate degree, while those nominated for the Transfer Pathway should plan to transfer to a four-year college after graduation.

The program annually recognizes 104 Scholars. Each New Century Workforce Pathway Scholar receives special recognition at the Association of Community College Trustees Congress, while each New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar receives special recognition at the American Association of Community Colleges Convention.
