Ahwatukee Resident Named All-Arizona Academic

Ahwatukee Foothills resident and Gateway Community College student Nannan Zhang was recently named as an All-Arizona Academic and was awarded a scholarship to Arizona State University.

According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Zhang grew up in China and had always dreamed of getting a college degree in the United States.

“It’s an incredible feeling and an important mark in my life,” she told Ahwatukee Foothills News. “This is the only scholarship and a very big one. I was very flattered. It’s very hard for international students to win a scholarship, especially at the undergraduate level.”

All-Arizona Academics were chosen from community colleges across the state, the newspaper said. To be considered students have to earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher, be working on an associate’s degree, be a college ambassador and demonstrate leadership.
