Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College recently presented campus honors to a select group of students in this year’s graduating class.
Each year during Commencement Week, the Graduate Recognition Awards Ceremony celebrates the accomplishments of graduating students in the areas of Academic Achievement, Service to the College, and Community Service. Students are nominated and selected by the staff, faculty, and administration of the college.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the college was not able to hold the annual in-person ceremony to present the awards to the graduating students. “Congratulations to all the award winners and to the students receiving academic achievement honors. We, at FDLTCC commend you for your work and are looking forward to celebrating with next year’s graduates in person.” FDLTCC President Stephanie Hammitt.
Highlights this year include the announcement of Taria White of McGregor as 2021 Student of the Year, and the Presidential Merit award presented to Shania DeLille of Cloquet.

Testimonials

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.
