Connesha Posey of Macomb is the recipient of the Student Shout-Out Award for September at Spoon River College, and received a $100 Visa Gift Card. She was nominated for exemplifying the SRC core values of caring, responsibility, integrity, respect, and fairness.

“Connesha’s exceptional demonstration of our core values stood out during a recent class review activity. She went above and beyond to assist the fellow students in her group who were grappling with challenging course material,” said math faculty member Shelli Stuart. “With unwavering patience and genuine empathy, she provided guidance and support, and her actions are a testament to her outstanding character and dedication to creating a positive learning experience for all. It is the spirit of unity that we strive to cultivate in our school community.”

Posey, full-time student and mother of three, was also a past recipient of the Nathan Cobb Memorial Scholarship, and plans to transfer and major in accounting.

The Student Shout-Out is an initiative that encourages any faculty or employee to nominate a student who deserves a special shout-out for exhibiting the core values of the college—caring, respect, integrity, fairness and responsibility—or going above and beyond to help others.
