Sheridan College graduate Madison Anderson is the recipient of this year's President's Award.

The surprise announcement came during Saturday's commencement ceremony at the Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome.

Anderson, who's from Ten Sleep, received an Associate of Science in Agriculture Business and graduated with a 4.0 cumulative grade point average.

The President's Award is presented to one graduating Sheridan College student each year, and the student is selected based on cumulative GPA and the student's participation and leadership both within Sheridan College and the broader community.

During her first year at Sheridan College, Anderson served as a Wyoming State FFA officer and won the National Professional Agricultural Student State Sales Contest in Louisville, Kentucky.

This past year, she served as president of the Sheridan College student senate and represented Sheridan College at the Community College National Legislative Summit in March in Washington D.C.

She also won the Wyoming State Farm Bureau Collegiate Meet, placed second at the National Professional Agriculture Student Extemporaneous Speaking Contest and was an intern at the Wyoming State FFA Conference.

Anderson will continue her education this fall at the University of Wyoming, where she plans to pursue a bachelor's degree in international agriculture business. She will serve as an intern for U.S. Sen. John Barrasso this summer.
