Two students from Northeast Texas Community College recently received the Walter B Cooper Scholarship at the Phi Theta Kappa Texas Leadership Conference held virtually on October 15-17th. The Walter B Cooper Scholarship recognizes outstanding students in the state of Texas who are “well-rounded” in the four Hallmarks of Phi Theta Kappa: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship.
Maxime Risner and Brian Ramirez were among seven winners recognized across the entire state of Texas. While NTCC’s chapter, Alpha Mu Chi, has had Walter B. Cooper Scholarship winners in the past, it is unprecedented for the chapter that two applicants be awarded within the same year. Risner will receive $750 and tied for the overall first place application and Ramirez will receive $250.
For ten years in the “BioTex” seminar at NTCC, honors students have experienced a November “email shootout.” This is something like a cross between an ongoing basketball game with scores changing in real time, and a fast-paced, scholarly-poetic thinkathon. The course challenges students to conceptualize the elements of their Texas history research essays, to utilize crossover “analogs, (terms)” particularly from biology, and to provide terse definitions of their newly minted concepts.
