Elham Mausumi, a student at Las Pazitas College in Livermore, has been named a Gold Fellow of the Coca-Cola Academic Team and a 2022 Phi Theta Kappa All-California Award winner.
Mausumi’s selection as a Coca-Cola Gold Fellow was based on her results in the All-American Academic Team competition.
Students are nominated to the All-American Academic Team by college administrators. Selection is based on academic achievement, leadership and participation in college and community service.
Only 50 students in the country have been recognized as gold fellows with more than 2,000 applicants. Another 100 students are named Silver and Bronze Fellows.
As a Gold Fellow, Mausumi will receive a $ 1,500 scholarship and a commemorative medallion from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, which awards nearly $ 200,000 a year in scholarships. Recognition of Mausumi as a laureate of the Phi Theta Kappa All-California Award 2022 was based on her excellence, leadership and community service.
The Society of Honor has created a nationwide academic team program to recognize the best public college students. Mausumi was among 114 students selected from California Community Colleges to participate in California’s first, second, and third academic teams.
Mausumi, a psychology major in Las Positas, is also a member of the Honor Societies Psi Beta, Alpha Gamma Sigma and Mu Alpha Theta. She also volunteered as a crisis advisor for Crisis Text Line and was an intern at the International Bipolar Foundation.
