Adam John/Credit: NVCCAdam John of Reston is one of four Northern Virginia Community College students named to the Phi Theta Kappa Top Ten All-Virginia Academic Team

John, 25, studied biology at NOVA’s Loudoun Campus and served as president of the Alpha Zeta Rho chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. He completed two research-based internships and will transfer in the fall to Columbia University to study neuroscience.

He said he hopes these experiences will help him gain acceptance to a MD-PhD program, where he plans to pursue medical research in brain function.

John was honored — along with Allan Edzii of Sterling, Amanuel Eshete of Alexandria, Isabela Lopes of Gainesville — at a recognition ceremony last month in April.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the national honor society for two-year college students, is the largest honor society in higher education with 1,285 chapters on college campuses in all 50 of the United States, plus internationally.
