Honor includes $5,000 scholarship
Nursing student Joshua Pierce is WNC's recipient of the 2010 Regents' Scholar Award. The Board of Regents for the Nevada System of Higher Education annually recognizes students for their academic achievements, leadership ability and service contributions.
Pierce's journey at WNC has been paved with challenges and achievement. He maintains a 3.66 grade point average, is a Carson City Rotary Club scholar and an All-USA Community College Academic Award recipient. Pierce graduates from Western this spring and plans to continue his education at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Dean of Instruction Carol Lange nominated Josh: "During my encounters with Josh, I have come to admire and respect him as a student, a caring individual, a very hard worker and a dedicated family person."
Pierce expresses sincere gratitude to the WNC faculty and staff as contributors to his success.
"They have gone above and beyond in all aspects to help me achieve my goals. Things done here are life changing in ways that other institutions can't match," he said.
