Leah Black, an applied business technology student, was presented with the NLC Foundation Award of Excellence, valued at $3,000. Candidates for the Award of Excellence submitted an essay outlining their community involvement and a community project they would like to be involved in, leadership roles in school or the community, extra-curricular activities, future plans, and how attending NLC will help those plans.

Micaela Burton, a university arts and sciences student, and Taylor Moore, an applied business technology student, each received an NLC Foundation Entrance Award valued at $1,000. Eligible recipients for an Entrance Award must be attending NLC for the first time and enrolling in full-time studies in any program. Dual credit students are eligible if they are enrolling in a program other than their dual credit program. Applicants submit a brief description of planned program and future career goals.
