Two Central Oregon Community College students are recognized for their outstanding achievements, and now have some doors open to them. COCC spokesman Ron Paradis says the two women both have either a 3.9 or 4.0 grade average. "Well, we have two students, Lisa Barnett and Ruth Yao. Both Bend residents have been chosen as members of the 2012 All Oregon Academic Team, and what that means is that they are going to Salem in April and get a chance to meet with the Governor and have their pictures taken with him and will be recognized at a lunch with students from other community colleges in Oregon. Among the things taken into consideration is the grade point average and they both have outstanding grade point averages. So they're both exceptional students when it comes to grades. We asked the faculty to look for students who engage other students and assist other students and are involved in both the campus and the community. So both of these women have been very involved in the campus and the community in helping themselves, their faculty members and their peers." Paradis says by being chosen to the All Oregon Academic team means each scholar is eligible for a scholarship from most of Oregon’s public and private four-year institutions, if they apply and are accepted at the school of their choice. Lisa Barnett and Ruth Yao were chosen out of 7500 students at COCC.
