2017 Students of Distinction Announced
Twenty students, who have distinguished themselves and are representative of the top scholars at Fullerton College, will be honored at the annual Students of Distinction awards banquet.
Recipients were selected through a nomination process involving faculty, staff, and fellow students. This year, the scholarship awards were divided into 4 achievement categories: Academic, Personal, Service and Competitive to allow for a more equitable process in which students would choose the category to compete in, depending on their experience at Fullerton College. Each category has its own selection committee, made up of: 1 Manager, 2 Faculty, 1 Classified Staff and 1 Student Representative.
Of the 20 students, two students will be awarded “Distinguished Student of the Year” on the evening of May 12 and will be honored by an additional scholarship by District Management Association and the Emoto Scholarship.
All recipients will be graduating, transferring to a four-year university, or will be completing a certificate program by the end of summer. They will receive a scholarships provided by Schlinger Men & Women of Distinction Scholarship, FC Faculty Wives Scholarship, Associated Students, Janet & Henry Emoto Scholarship and many other personal donors.
