Welch honored as member of All-Iowa Academic Team ...
Four students at Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) were honored at the 2017 All-Iowa Academic Team Recognition Banquet held in Des Moines March 1. The annual ceremony recognizes exceptional community college student scholars who are members of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the world's largest and most prestigious honor society for two-year college students. Students from each of the state’s 15 community colleges were invited to attend.
Among those honored students was Jacqueline Welch of Waukon, who is a Business Specialist and Pre-Nursing student at the Calmar campus. Welch is a Phi Theta Kappa All-USA Scholarship Nominee and was named to the Dean’s List at NICC. After graduation, she plans to transfer to Upper Iowa University. She is a 2015 graduate of Waukon High School and the daughter of Kim and Amy Welch of Waukon.
NICC hosted this year’s All-Iowa Academic Team Recognition Banquet and has active Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapters at its Calmar and Peosta campuses. In fall 2016, 103 students were members of the College’s two chapters and a total of 3,228 NICC students have been members since 1997.
