Two students were honored recently in a new program called the JCTC Carrollton Campus Student of the Month Award.
DeVonna Payton and Marty Clark were honored for the months of August and Septem-ber, respectively, for outstanding academic achievement and campus involvement.
Clark enrolled at JCTC in the fall 2011 and is pursuing an associate’s degree. He plans to transfer to Lindsey Wilson College to complete a bachelor’s degree in human services and counseling.
“Marty is a bright addition to our campus,” said Sandy Roberts, who nominated him for the award. “His dedication to his school work is admirable; he even came to the library to complete assignments when he was recovering from major surgery. He is always cheerful and has a positive attitude. He demonstrates those qualities that are desirable in an exemplary student.”
Clark also was involved with the voter-registration drive in September.
Payton also enrolled at JCTC in fall 2011 and is pursuing a degree in engineering technology. She was motivated to attend college to provide a better life for herself and her family.
Payton “always goes beyond what is asked of her in class and displays a general ‘can do’ attitude toward her education,” said instructor Chuck Hollingsworth, who nominated her.
