A student from Sheridan College has been selected as the 2012 Wyoming New Century Scholar by the All-USA community College Academic Team. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the story.
First year nursing student Taesub Kim entered the competition through his involvement with Phi Theta Kappa, which is a two year collegiate international honor society. Judging consisted of grades, activities, leadership and how the student extends their intellectual talents beyond the classroom. Kim said when he learned of the recognition, he found it hard to believe.
Soon after sitting down with Taesub, it was apparent that he was very humble regarding his accomplishment.
Kim will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship at the 2012 American Association of Community Colleges Convention that began Sunday and will run through Tuesday in Orlando, Florida.
