Cassandra Dishman of Gothenburg was named North Platte Community College’s Business Student of the Month for February.
Dishman graduated from Logan-Magnolia High School in Logan, Iowa, in 2003. During her time at NPCC, she has focused on earning a degree in business technology with a medical emphasis. She is also an active member of the NPCC chapter of Phi Beta Lambda.
“I am very happy with my choice to attend NPCC and would recommend that others attend the college as well,” she said. “I have enjoyed working with all of my instructors. They have been very helpful to me and I would like to thank them all for their time and patience the last couple of years. I really appreciate everything!”
In her spare time, Dishman enjoys spending time with family and friends. She likes to be outdoors as much as possible enjoying activities such as camping and swimming.
Dishman expects to graduate in May 2014. Her future plans include finding a job after graduation. She is also contemplating taking more classes at NPCC to add more emphases to her degree.
“I am having trouble deciding how busy I want to make myself again after I graduate,” she said. “I also want to spend as much time with my family as I can. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but I am very happy with my life and where I am in it. I want to say thank you to my family and friends for their love, support, and patience these last two years. It is much appreciated!”
