RCCC SGA president
Timothy Quinn Shay of Salisbury has been elected president of the Student Government Association at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. His 2009-10 term will begin July 1.
Shay is a computer programming student at RCCC. He is known for being an effective, practical and sympathetic leader.
The Student Government Association (SGA) held campus-wide elections April 28 and 29, during its annual Spring Fling celebration. More than 1,400 RCCC students participated in the event.
Other newly elected members of the incoming SGA board are Kimberly Reavis, Salisbury, secretary/treasurer; Lyndsey McGonagle, Concord, public information officer; Jonathan Furnas, Spencer, parliamentarian; and Karen Isenhour, Rockwell, membership officer.
Honor society
Charles D. Turner of Salisbury, a student at N.C. Central University, was inducted into Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society recently.
The society is for students who earn a 3.5 or better grade point average during at least one semester of their freshman year. Membership qualifies undergraduate students to apply for a scholarship from the National Chapter of Phi Eta Sigma.
ASU honor student
Ivy Overcash, daughter of Davey and Ketti Overcash of China Grove, has been named an academic honor student at Appalachian State University.
The designation is awarded to sophomore, junior and senior students who have a cumulative 3.9 or higher grade point average in courses taken at the university.
Overcash was recognized during the university’s Spring Academic Honors Convocation.

Kelly Hain of Hurley Elementary School earned an $800 grant from Target Field Trips to take 102 kindergarten students to the N.C. Zoo in Asheboro.
RCCC scholarships
Two Rowan-Cabarrus Community College students have won International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) scholarships awarded by the Cabarrus IAAP chapter.
Karen Isenhour of Rockwell, a medical office administration student, and Tara Snider of Salisbury, a medical office administration and office systems technology student, have received $500 scholarships.
The scholarship selection criteria include enrollment in a college-level administrative associate program and a minimum grade-point average of 3.0.
IAAP is a not-for-profit professional association with approximately 40,000 members and affiliates and nearly 600 chapters worldwide. Its mission is to enhance the success of career-minded administrative professionals by providing opportunities for growth through education, community building and leadership development.
Scholar honor

The East Rowan High School graduate will be honored during an induction convocation this fall on the campus of Appalachian State University, where she is a freshman.
