Jefferson City, Missouri – A North Central Missouri College student was honored by the Missouri Community College Association yesterday in Jefferson City. Christian (Tyler) Marion was named to the All-Missouri Academic Team, an honor bestowed on the state’s top community college students. Marion is from Neosho, Missouri and is a member of the NCMC Pirates baseball team. He was nominated for this award in recognition of his commitment and hard work for Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the largest honor society in higher education. He is President of the local Eta Mu Chapter of the PTK and has proven to be a strong leader.
Representative Elijah Haahr greeted the students and congratulated them on their achievements, and each student received a scholarship made possible by a donation from MOHELA, the state’s not-for-profit secondary market lender and servicer in the student loan industry.
