46 named outstanding students at NRCC
Forty-six students from the New River Valley were recognized as Outstanding Students in a Curriculum/Subject Area by New River Community College.
In lieu of the previously scheduled in-person annual President’s Awards ceremony typically held on campus that honors outstanding students, students received a congratulatory letter from the college president as well as a plaque honoring their awards. Students are also being individually recognized on NRCC’s social media outlets.
The awards were determined by the faculty in the various programs at the college.
