Skylar Bonnett, from Galt, MO, has been selected as North Central Missouri College’s Outstanding Student for June. She is a Missouri A+ scholarship student who just graduated with her associate of arts degree. In the fall, Skylar will attend the University of Missouri-Columbia to pursue her bachelor’s degree.

At NCMC, Skylar was involved in Student Support Services (SSS), First Gen Club, and PTK Honor Society. Skylar was also a student worker at the Frey Administrative Building. Her favorite class was English 102 with Instructor Stephen Williamson. Skylar said, “It was always fun, and I liked the challenge of writing the notorious ten-page paper.

Skylar went on to say, “I chose NCMC because of its affordability. Financially, this was the best decision for me and my family, especially since my mom works in the bookstore at NCMC, and I can use my Missouri A+ Scholarship to make my experience here debt-free.” Skylar said, “My favorite thing about NCMC is how everyone here on campus wants you to succeed and will do everything in their power for that to happen. As well as, how loved I feel here at NCMC! NCMC has helped me set up my life after my associate degree. I feel more than ready to take on COMO and Mizzou, even as a small-town girl. NCMC has given me the college feel while staying local, which has set me up for a bright future.”

Each month, a student is nominated by a faculty or staff member to be featured as an Outstanding Student based on their dedication to educational success, attitude toward learning, and hard work in their field and activities.
