Northwest Technical College held its fourth annual Student Achievement Celebration on May 5 to recognize outstanding students in each program.

  Founded in 2019 by Tyler Peterson, NTC student success center director, the event has become an annual celebration to applaud students’ hard work and determination in their academic careers.

  Each of NTC’s programs selected an outstanding student – one who consistently gives an exceptional effort within their program – and a most improved student – recognizing students who show tremendous growth and development in their coursework. 

  In addition to the program awards, NTC students, faculty and staff identified 10 students to receive campus-wide acknowledgments including awards for extraordinary kindness, community engagement award and online learning.

  During the event, Jayne Whiteford, a gerontology student from New York Mills, Minnesota, received the outstanding student award.
