Each year, Front Range Community College awards successful students by hosting the Student Awards Ceremony. Located in the Rocky Mountain room on Thursday, April 7, at 3:30 p.m., the Student Awards Ceremony commemorated students for performing above and beyond expectations.
The event is a great time for anyone to celebrate successful students. Dan Balski, the Coordinator of Clubs and Leadership stated, “The campus community is welcome to attend. Invites go out to all award winners, specifically, as well as all FRCC employees.”
Balski mentioned one specific type of award given to students, called the Academic Achievement Award. “The Academic Achievement Awards are given to one student per department, and are selected through each individual department,” said Balski. Other awards include the Vice President’s Service Award, Outstanding Student Employee Award, and the Diversity Advocate Award. These awards are all chosen out of a group of nominees. According to Balski, “All of these winners receive an engraved, acrylic award.”
Students who are interested in being awarded at the next Student Awards Ceremony have to maintain a strong work ethic to get noticed. “It is evident that these students hold themselves to a high standard and perform outstandingly, whether in the classroom, outside the classroom, or both. Such behaviors do not go unnoticed by the faculty and staff here on campus,” said Balski.
