Students cited as "BCCC's Best" for September


    Ten students at Beaufort County Community College were recognized as BCCC's Best in a ceremony on the college campus on Tuesday, Sept. 29. The students were recognized for the character trait "Committed" and were nominated by members of the faculty and staff. Those honored were Barbara Young, Joe Midgette, Laura Tate, Erica Modlin, Danisha Couther, Ashley Hendrickson, Marlen Gomez Avelar, Austin Nobles, Shakera Davis and Shellie Cahoon. During the ceremony attended by BCCC faculty and staff and guests of the honorees, Vice President of Student Services Rick Anderson and the nominating faculty or staff member presented each student with a certificate and outlined the reasons for the nomination. These 10 students have overcome a variety of personal obstacles and challenges, long commutes and longer hours, and remain committed to putting in quality work as they work toward achieving their academic goals. Each month, BCCC's Best highlights a character trait found in students such as motivation, respect, hard work, commitment and involvement in the college. The character trait for October is "Dependable"; nominations are due to Kimberly Jackson by Oct. 20.
