Jonathon Keneipp has been named North Platte Community College’s Business Student of the Month for February.

Keneipp graduated from North Platte High School in 2022 and is currently pursuing an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business with an emphasis in accounting at NPCC.

He initially enrolled at the college because of the convenience of it being in his hometown but has since come to appreciate the quality education, welcoming environment and many opportunities NPCC offers.

“The faculty make it a great place for students to learn,” Keneipp said. “The college provides an inclusive and fun experience. My most memorable moment so far has been making the President’s List.”

Keneipp was nominated for the student of the month recognition by Jimi Cole, business instructor.

“Jonathon is a student who shows up every day with a smile on his face ready to learn,” Cole said. “He takes his education seriously and is willing to do what it takes to succeed in the classroom. It is truly a pleasure having Jonathon in class, and I am excited to see what the future holds for him.”

Keneipp is on track to graduate in May of 2024.

“Right now, my plans are to finish college then proceed to law school to either study family law or corporate law,” he said.

Outside of college, Keneipp enjoys playing Dungeon and Dragons and Magic: The Gathering and hanging out with friends.
