Two Anoka-Ramsey Community College students named to All-Minnesota Academic Team

May 06, 2014

Avery O’Brien and Kristina Reiling, both students at Anoka-Ramsey Community College, have been named to the All-Minnesota Academic Team.

O’Brien and Reiling were among the state’s 43 nominees for the All-USA Academic Team for Community, Technical and Junior College Students, a program sponsored annually by Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for two-year colleges, USA Today and the American Association of Community Colleges.

O’Brien grew up in the Minneapolis metropolitan area and was raised primarily by his mother, though he also spent time with his father, who lived out of state. Close to his maternal grandfather, he has been helping him for a few years with various physical needs. O’Brien also spends time with and helps his two younger brothers, as well as working part-time and attending college full time. He plans to earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting. “In summary, I get excited thinking of my future and look forward to the next steps of my life,” he said. 

Reiling, who earned her associate of arts degree from Anoka-Ramsey in 2012, is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. She has been active on the Cambridge campus by participating in the Honors Scholar Program, the Student Nurses Association and Phi Theta Kappa. She held various roles in the Phi Theta Kappa chapter and currently represents the college as the regional president of Minn-Kota Region of Phi Theta Kappa. She enjoys spending time with her family, especially her six-year-old daughter, horseback riding and downhill skiing.

Nominees were selected based on biographical information, letters of recommendation, academic performance, demonstration of leadership, and campus and community service. Applicants also wrote an essay describing a specific educational experience while attending a two-year college that has transformed the student’s thinking about learning or the future.

More than 200 people including students, college faculty and staff from higher education institutions from around the state and higher education dignitaries attended a recent recognition event for the All-Minnesota Academic Team.

Sponsored by the Minn-Wi-Kota Region of Phi Theta Kappa, participating colleges and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, the All-Minnesota Academic Team was introduced nearly 20 years ago to honor two-year college students for their leadership, academic achievement, and community and college service.
