WSCC Student Named to all Michigan academic team.


VICTORY TOWNSHIP — West Shore Community College student Rayma Burgett has been named to the All Michigan Academic Team, a recognition for students engaged in the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) academic honors program. She will receive her award in Lansing on Wednesday, March 15.

The Michigan Community College Association hosts the annual awards luncheon to honor students from all of Michigan’s community colleges. Students are selected based on academic achievement, community service involvement, and leadership accomplishments.

Burgett was born and raised in Jamaica. She is a resident of Scottville and moved to the United States in 2007.  In 2016, she earned a certificate from WSCC in medical billing and coding and is currently pursuing an associate of applied arts and sciences degree in medical office information systems.

She is married to a Scottville native and shares a 10-year-old son who she said, “propels her to achieve her goals and helps her to accomplish her dreams.”

She is the president WSCC’s PTK chapter and has worked in both the nursing and admissions departments. She is also a member of the Future Business Leaders Club.

This fall, Burgett is planning to attend Ferris State University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

PTK’s all-state recognition programs are conducted in 32 states. All-state team members also have the opportunity to be named to the All-USA Team.
