College of Central Florida student Daniel Goodman was recently named as a Guistwhite Scholar. Winners were selected from among 4,400 applicants nationwide, and their selection was based on academic excellence, leadership accomplishments, and engagement in Phi Theta Kappa programs. Goodman was one of 15 members selected and will receive a $5,000 scholarship for baccalaureate studies.
This is the second-highest scholarship offered by PTK and is named in honor of the late Margaret and Dr. Jack Guistwhite, who established the first transfer scholarship designated exclusively for PTK members to Florida Atlantic University in 1975.
“Daniel is one of the great students and has embraced everything that CF had to offer and excelled even with a shift to address the pandemic’s impact at the college,” said Dr. Allan Danuff, CF associate vice president of Arts and Sciences. “He’s a true CF Patriot and Phi Theta Kappa officer.”
Goodman plans on attending the University of Central Florida as part of the DirectConnect to UCF program and study pre-medicine.
Earlier this month, Goodman was named a 2021 Coca-Cola Academic Team Gold Scholar and received a $1,500 scholarship.
