Presidential & Dean's Scholars Named
Caroline Gaudreault, a 2008 graduate from Cozad High School in Cozad, Nebraska, was recently named the Presidential Scholar at York College for the 2008-09 freshman class. To be eligible, high school seniors must score a 30 or higher on the ACT (a 1320 on the SAT) exam.
The full tuition scholarship is York College’s most prestigious award recognizing the academic achievement as well as high moral character of the student. Finalists were invited to campus in April for a series of interviews with members of the Academic Council and an alumni panel.
Caroline has a passion for people and has aspirations of doing mission work. One of her interviewers had this to say about her, “What a great personality! Caroline has a very positive outlook on life and will be a tremendous influence on the student body of York College.”
After an application and interview process, three graduating seniors were also recently awarded the Dean’s Scholarship worth $8,500 per year. David Ohlin of Aurora, Nebraska, is a graduate of Aurora High School and will be a Pre-Veterinarian major.

Diamond High, and will major in Secondary Education.Congratulations to these high-achieving students on their accomplishments and this well-deserved recognition.
