Every semester full-time and associate faculty in NTCC’s Division of Humanities and Social Sciences can select an outstanding student, who is exceptional in some way. This semester, Government Professor Rex Allen nominated Sarah Ann Beatriz Worthen.
Professor Allen explained that “She is a very motivated individual that participates in a very positive manner in our class. Her desire to do well in the class is shown by her preparation and discussion on all the political issues. She is most deserving to be recognized for this award.”
Upon learning of her award, Sarah Worthen commented, “I could honestly talk about Professor Allen all day. He is one of my most favorite Professors. He is incredibly kind, very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher, encourages me to keep going forward, and most importantly he teaches me to LOVE my freedom, my rights and my country. Professor Allen is very proud of where he is from and what he represents. There's no confusing as to where he stands. He is someone I will always look up to and be so grateful for the time I got to learn from him. NTCC is extremely lucky to have him!”
