Alonza Bradley of Fiatt was the recipient of the Student Shout-Out for October at Spoon River College, and will receive a $100 Visa gift card. Bradley was recognized for “being an exemplary student who embodies the core values of SRC: caring, respect, integrity, fairness, and responsibility.”

“Alonza is unfailing supportive and respectful of his peers, and I admire his humanity — he is a deeply kind and empathetic person,” said English professor Laura Bandy. “I also appreciate his creativity and grit — he has a talent and passion for writing, but without follow through, that talent would go to waste. Alonza always follows through, spending time with his writerly endeavors every day and routinely seeking out ways to become stronger with his craft. I am a big fan of Alonza Bradley and am glad that he has chosen Spoon River College as an academic home.”

Bradley plays on the Spoon River College E-sports team and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa. He will graduate in the spring of 2022, and plans to transfer to Brigham Young University with aspirations of becoming an English professor.

The Student Shout-Out is an initiative that encourages any faculty or employee to nominate a student who deserves a special shout-out. “The reason can be big or small, but the important thing is that we hear about the positive and helpful things our students are doing,” said Abby Beck, TRIO advisor on the Macomb Campus.
