During Meridian Community College's graduation ceremonies Monday night, the college recognized its Ivy Scholars: Mandy Snell, Sammie Cole and Kenneth Moser.
Selected on the basis of academic excellence, extra-curricular participation, financial need and faculty appraisals, each of the three graduates received $1,500 for their junior year of study at senior institutions.
If they maintain a high grade point average, each student will be awarded another $1,500 for their senior year of study. The scholarships, awarded for 29 years, are named after MCC founder Dr. H.M. Ivy.
Also recognized with medallions and certificates were 21 outstanding graduates announced to MCC's Circle of Excellence. The graduates were chosen based on scholarship, leadership, spirit and service.
The students were: Joel Stinson, Melissa Wooten, Lindsey Spencer, Mandy Snell, Christine Myers, Kenneth Moser, Sakina Tarrel Hoskins, Matt Elliott, Alison Davis, Brandy Cramblitt, David Close, Tina Clearman, Jennifer Olsen, Elizabeth Woodall, Courtney Darnell, Amy Daniels, Trent Hughes, Brandon Pritchard, Jason Holladay, Sammie Cole and Shawn Stewart.
Teacher of the Year recipients were also recognized.
The awards, given through the MCC Foundation, were initiated 23 years ago. They were named after Dr. Clarence Roberts a few years ago when he retired as MCC vice president after 31 years at the college.
Recipients are selected based on excellence in teaching, innovative techniques and institutional and community service.
The award includes a check for $500 for the recipients, who were: Gail Barton, coordinator and instructor of the Horticulture Technology Program; Becky May, Associate Degree Nursing instructor; and Al Mitchell, a student skills instructor at the Students Success Center.
