North Platte Community College basketball player Slavomyr Marchenko is NPCC's Business Student of the Month for April. 

Marchenko is from Kyiv, Ukraine. He graduated from Anders High School in Warsaw, Poland in 2019. He will earn an Associate of General Studies Degree from NPCC in May. 

"NPCC provides excellent conditions to develop myself as a student and as an athlete," said Marchenko. "I like the faculty, and I know that I can always expect help and support if I need it." 

Marchenko is a member of the NPCC Knights Men's Basketball Team. He plans to transfer to a four-year college or university to continue both basketball and his studies after commencement. 

"Slavomyr is one of those students who you treasure and remember," said Angie Chittick, NPCC business and office technology instructor. "He is very conscientious and takes his education seriously. He constantly strives to excel and achieve perfection. Slavomyr's strong work ethic, dedication and academic ability make him an obvious choice for being recognized as a business student of the month. I wish him the best of luck in reaching all his goals both in the workplace and on the basketball court." 

Outside of sports and school, Marchenko enjoys reading, playing video games and watching TV. 

His parents are Svitlana and Vyacheslav Marchenko.
