Hassie Wright has been named Student of the Month for September at the Whitesburg Campus of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKCTC).
She is a respiratory care student with plans to graduate in May 2021. Wright says, “I chose Southeast because I am familiar with this college, and it is close to home and my children’s schools. It is small, and you can actually get to know your teachers and not feel lost in a sea of thousands of students.”
Each SKCTC campus has a Student of the Month selection committee appointed by its campus director. In making its choice, the committee weighs criteria such as academic performance, extracurricular activities, work ethic, helpfulness to others, and whether the student has had to overcome significant barriers in achieving academic success.
