What's happening at TRIO

Spring 2020 Awards

Nominate your TRIO friends for an award to be given at our April 2020 banquet. Email your TRIO Advisor your nomination by April 1; be sure to let them know which award you are nominating someone for. You can nominate yourself.

Jennifer McHorse Legacy Award:

Awarded to a student who has gone above and beyond to help TRIO students. The award goes to a person who has given us feedback, generated ideas, and has been motivated to help TRIO put those ideas into action. We view this person as an “honorary staff member.” This award is named after Jennifer Mc Horse, a TRIO participant and alumni, who contributed to the program in these same ways.

Fresh Outlook Award:

Awarded to a student who struggled academically in previous semesters but has worked hard to improve their grades and strengthen their skills as a student.

Community Builder Award:

Awarded to a student who works hard to build a sense of community at TRIO and FLC by promoting student gatherings or discussions, by starting new friendships in TRIO, and/or by encouraging connections between fellow students.

Transcend and Triumph Award:

Awarded to a student who perseveres through college while, behind the scenes, they are working through stressful personal situations, have several obligations to tend to at home, trying to overcome personal strife, and/or living with multiple, complicated personal stressors yet handling it all and progressing towards graduation.

Unwavering Achievement Award:

Awarded to a student who has always done well academically by using wise academic and life skills to obtain good grades, pulling their own weight when working with others, jumping into projects with both feet and meeting high standards for themselves. Nothing seems to get in the way of keeping their grades high.
