NIC student selected as Rotary Student of the Month
|photo1|Former North Idaho College student Ana Burton was selected as February's Coeur d'Alene Rotary Club Student of the Month.
Burton was nominated in December when she was attending NIC, working toward a teaching certificate.
Burton began working as an office assistant in the NIC President's Office three years ago through the Work-Study Program. She now works part time in the office.
Burton has taken courses at the University of Idaho—Coeur d'Alene and since graduating from NIC with an associate's degree last fall, is now looking into a career as an education administrator.
“I'm looking forward to the upcoming adventures in my life,” Burton said.
While attending NIC, Burton lived in the NIC Residence Hall and learned a lot about the campus by participating on various committees including the United Way Committee that organizes an annual chili cook-off to raise funds for United Way and a Denim Day fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
“What I enjoyed most about NIC was being able to walk across campus and see so many familiar faces, whether it was faculty or staff or fellow students,” Burton said.
Burton is originally from Rockford, Wash., and graduated as valedictorian of her Freeman High School class in 2002.For More Information
