NMCC Student Wins National Scholarship
Northern Maine Community College is proud to announce that nursing student Jenny Ann Morneault has been selected to receive a $1000 scholarship from Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as a 2016 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholar.
The Fort Kent native was among 200 selected for the award from a pool of more than 1,100 who applied for the scholarship worldwide.

Members gain leadership skills through campus and community projects.
Independent judges evaluated the applications based on scholastic achievement, community service and leadership potential.

Morneault also reports for the College newspaper, The Campus Voice; she is a member of the Student Nurses’ Association and currently has a 3.81 GPA.
