North Central Missouri College students were recently recognized by the Missouri Community College Association for their outstanding leadership or participation in Phi Theta Kappa. Four students attended MCCA’s spring luncheon to receive recognition for their success.

This award is presented to an exceptional student leader from each of Missouri’s community colleges/campuses. Criteria for this award include being enrolled in good standing at a Missouri community college, a 2.5 GPA or higher, and the student must exhibit outstanding leadership qualities.
Adam Rice and Brandon Young were selected as the recipients of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) All
Missouri Scholars. The Phi Theta Kappa All Missouri Scholars recognizes outstanding PTK students graduating from community college and transferring to a four-year institution. Nicole Kost was selected as the Phi Theta Kappa New Century Workforce Scholar. This awarded is given to an exceptional PTK student that will be entering the workforce after graduation.
“We are exceptionally proud of these students, stated Dr. Kristen Alley, Associate Vice President of Student Affairs. “They have excelled in the classroom, exhibited outstanding leadership qualities, and have demonstrated a commitment to their academic and personal goals. We are confident they will continue to be successful in the classroom and in their chosen careers.”
