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.
NTCC scholars gained significant traction last year interviewing local professionals such as Cynthia Amerson, Dr. Karen Koerber-Timmons, and Dr. Kathy Carter, acquiring significant perspectives in medical and veterinary fields. Their research, honed through a series of presentations at the Texas Webb Society, Great Plains Honors Council, and the McGraw Hill Poster Contest produced areas of expertise valuable enough to be conveyed to an audience whose average member was probably three times their average age.
