Finger Lakes Community College students Elizabeth Schultz-Pfaff of Canandaigua and Jonathan Jensen of Penn Yan were recognized for academic excellence on April 4 at a luncheon sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges.

Schultz-Pfaff and Jensen were among 64 students to be named to the All New York Academic Team, an award sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, community college presidents and community college state associations. Schultz-Pfaff was named to the All New York First Team and Jensen was named to the All New York Second Team.

Elizabeth Schultz-Pfaff is a December 2011 FLCC graduate, having earned her associate degree in business administration. While a student, she served as the 2010-2011 president of Alpha Epsilon Chi, FLCC’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter. She also took part in the International Scholar Laureate Program, which allowed her to study international relations in China. Schultz-Pfaff is currently attending Keuka College, working toward a bachelor’s degree in organizational management and international business with hopes of attaining a position in a multinational company.

Jonathan Jensen will graduate in May with his associate degree in biology with plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in biology at Hawaii Pacific University. Jensen served Phi Theta Kappa as president of Alpha Epsilon Chi during the 2011-2012 academic year. He was named Distinguished Chapter Member of the New York Region in 2011 and Distinguished Chapter Officer of the New York Region for 2012. He was recently one of 30 students out of hundreds of candidates to be recognized as International Distinguished Chapter Officer at the International Convention in Nashville, Tenn.
