HOUSTON (March 2, 2010) – Lone Star College-Kingwood’s faculty and staff looked at students’ grades, extracurricular activities and personal triumphs to nominate 21 for Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Students from all walks of life, traditional to nontraditional, were recommended for this distinguished honor.
“Faculty and staff were asked to individually nominate students they felt were outstanding in academics and participated in extracurricular activities and community service,” Nicole Keenan, admissions manager at LSC-Kingwood, said. “It is my understanding that all nominees will have their names published in the 2010 edition of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.”
All students enrolled in colleges and universities in the United States for at least four months during Sept. 1, 2009 through May 1, 2010 are eligible, Keenan said. Scholarship winners will be notified by telephone and will be determined in a random drawing in May by Promotion Partners, an independent judging organization. Scholarships in the amount of $2,000, $3,000 and $5,000 will be awarded to three 2010 Who’s Who students.
The nominated students are Rebecca Gray, Megan Payne, Sean Stout, Melanie Stout, Sarah Nerad, Brittany Trice, Tanyanika Tidwell, Miguel Fraire, Michael Wright, Hugh Vessels, Guy Hawkins, Angela Shively, Keelie Barrow, Musbah Sheikh, Alina Haryazha, Katrina Boxley, Tracy Stoddard, Casey Timme, Cyndi Aughinbaugh, Desiree Lipscomb, and Nicollette Eason.
