A number of “Students of the
Year” were recognized at a special banquet at Southeast Community College’s
Beatrice Campus. Eight students from different areas of study were recognized by
faculty members for grades, attitude and progress in their programs.
“This is such a rewarding
event to hear faculty speak highly of our students and their successes in the
classroom,” said Toni Landenberger, Assistant Campus Director & Dean of
The Beatrice Area Chamber of
Commerce co-sponsored the event with various community sponsors. Checks were given
to each of the students. The following students received awards:
Harrenstein, Doniphan, Agriculture.
* Brittyn Wentz, Fairbury,
* Eric Escobar, Wilber,
* Miguel Orozco, Tecumseh,
* Natasha Gruenert,
* Bailey Perkins, Crete,
* Jesse Sacrison, Spearfish,
South Dakota, Social Sciences.
* Zachary Johnson, Omaha, Math/Science
“It was wonderful to learn of
the many ways these students made an impact on the program’s faculty beyond
grades to also include work ethic, preparation, character, dependability, and
willingness to help others,” Landenberger added.
businesses sponsoring were Orscheln Farm & Home, First National Bank of
Omaha, Mosaic, Q5 Controls, and Cerice Cornelius.
