NIC student chosen as Rotary Student of the Month for February
North Idaho College student tutor and participant of the TRIO Student Support Services program Monique Hanson of Coeur d’Alene was selected as February’s Coeur d’Alene Rotary Club Student of the Month.

“I have a wonderful supportive husband named Eli,” Hanson said. “He is a great encouragement.”
In addition to studying, Hanson is involved at both NIC and in the community. She currently serves as an NIC ambassador, giving campus tours to new and prospective students, and is a member of NIC’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. Hanson works for the Center for Educational Access reading books on tape for disabled students and she also calls bingo and visits with the elderly residents at Coeur d’Alene Homes regularly.
“I decided to come back to school because I had a dream to become a nurse,” Hanson said. “NIC has made a world of difference in my life because it has provided me with an excellent education. NIC is filled with caring individuals, both staff and students, that encourage and push me to reach my full potential.”
Hanson will complete an associate’s degree this summer and has applied to the Practical Nursing program this fall. She plans to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Lewis-Clark State College and hopes to become a midwife and work with women with crisis pregnancies. For More Information
