WCCC Graduates Cited With Special Awards

It was a day to remember for Warren County Community College graduate James Crouse. He along with many of his fellow graduates started the day off by being recognized for their their academic and social achievements during the 2016-17 academic year at a special ceremony, and then receiving degrees at commencement.

Among the special award-winners was Crouse, who received the Trustees Award, Benjamin Volk, recipient of the President’s Academic Award, and Rhonda Thomas-Boothe, who was presented with the Foundation Directors’ Award for Student Achievement.

Crouse, the president of student government during the past year and the student speaker at graduation where he gave a stirring speech about his overcoming of addiction, also received the American Psychological Association Award.

In all, over 20 students were cited for the excellent efforts during the past year.

“I really feel like this is the most outstanding class ever,” WCCC President Dr. Will Austin said. “You have all achieved academic excellence, and perhaps more importantly, have excelled in many other ways as well, from becoming community and college leaders to leaving a mark that fellow graduates to come will want to follow.”
