Skagit Valley College’s Whidbey Island Campus celebrated student achievement at the college’s annual Honors Reception in May at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge.
The SVC Foundation awarded 47 scholarships, totaling $55,043, to 33 students to help them continue their education.
SVC President Tom Keegan awarded four students with the President’s Medal for their outstanding academic achievement.
President’s Medals were presented to Joel Atienza of Oak Harbor, Lauren Cribb of Oak Harbor, Heather Kortuem of Coupeville and Vetrica LeMaitre of Oak Harbor.
Cribb also received the Yates Award, the highest award bestowed at the Whidbey Island Campus, named for the former admiral and commanding officer of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station who was instrumental in working with SVC to secure property for the Whidbey Island Campus.
This spring, Cribb was named to the All-Washington Academic Team 2012, along with 65 other high academic achievers from Washington’s community and technical colleges. She has maintained a full-time credit load while maintaining a 3.99 GPA.
Cribb has also contributed two years to the Whidbey Island Campus Student Government, where she has served as a student advocate, and this year, as the chair.
Cribb is one of the most active members in the Alpha Omicron Sigma chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, volunteering countless hours toward Phi Theta Kappa activities and programs. Her efforts continue to play a large role in the chapter’s increased presence on the Whidbey Island Campus.
