KCC announces academic honorees for winter 2011

ROSCOMMON – Officials at Kirtland Community College recently recognized students for their academic achievements during the 2011 winter semester which earned them placement on the college’s dean’s and president’s lists.

To qualify for the president’s list, candidates must be full-time students who earn a grade-point average between 3.8 and 4.0. Dean’s list candidates must have a grade-point average of 3.4 to 3.799.

Also, for the first time, Kirtland is recognizing its part-time students by releasing a new part-time honors list.

“This was actually an initiative of one of our students, which was later approved by the administration,” said Dr. Tom Quinn, president at Kirtland. “Since we serve so many non-traditional and part-time students, we thought this was a wonderful idea.

“After all, not everyone – due to working or family commitments – can attend full time. Yet, these students work just as hard in the classroom and it was time to honor their achievements,” Quinn added.

To qualify for the part-time honors list, students must complete 6 to 11.99 credits with a GPA of 3.50 or higher.
