Do you know a student that stood out this fall semester and will be continuing their studies with us through the 2016-2017 academic year? NWACC has many students that stand out for their leadership skills, their commitment to their education, and for the many hours that they contribute to this campus or to their community. It’s time to give these students the recognition they deserve by nominating them for the Golden Eagle Award. Students that meet the criteria may be nominated for the Golden Eagle Award by any administrator, faculty, or staff member. Nominations will be reviewed, and a recipient selected, by the selection committee. The Golden Eagle recipient will be recognized at the Board of Trustees meeting and presented with a certificate of recognition as well as a $100.00 check. Students selected for the Golden Eagle Award may be eligible for the Distinguished Golden Eagle Award (as long as they meet the requirements) at the end of the current academic year which will award the recipient with a scholarship worth up to $1,800 for the following academic year at NWACC. Please see attached nomination form and criteria for nomination and selection. Nominations may be submitted at any time through March 25, 2016.
