Michael Summers of Hershey was named North Platte Community College's Business Student of the Month for October.
Summers graduated from Hershey Public School in 1979. During his time at NPCC, he has focused on earning an Associate of Applied Science degree in Business and Marketing.
"I selected NPCC because of its affordability, location, and student-to-teacher ratio," he said. "NPCC and the faculty have made the transition back to school, after 33 years, accessible and rewarding. The faculty is excellent and has provided me with personal guidance and a challenging curriculum."
Summers is a member of Phi Beta Lambda and Phi Theta Kappa at NPCC. In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, music, and spending time with his grandsons.
Summers expects to graduate in 2014. Following graduation he plans to remain in the area and hopes to work for a local media firm in marketing and possibly start his own business.
