HATTIESBURG, MS, (WDAM) - A Pearl River Community College student has been selected to join an elite group of scholars from across the county.

PRCC sophomore, Lee Kinabrew was honored recently as a Phi Theta Kappa, All-Mississippi and All-USA Community College Academic First Team member.

Phi Theta Kappa is the national honors society for community college students. Originally from Louisiana, Kinabrew has been studying English and History at PRCC's Hattiesburg campus. In the fall of 2011, he plans to transfer to Southern Miss and further his studies in the Hospitality Management field.

As an All-USA team member, Kinabrew is part of a select group of just twenty students from across the country.

"I feel that my experience here at PRC has definitely been a watershed moment in my life. And if I could give any advice to anybody, it would definitely be to start out at a community college. Not only start out, but complete a community college and then go to a four year university," said Kinabrew.

Because of his accomplishments, Kinabrew received a total of 35-hundred dollars in scholarship funds to continue his education at USM.
