Alanah Howarter of Canton is the recipient of the Student Shout-Out for February at Spoon River College.

Howarter was nominated by SRC River Roast barista, Kaitlyn Tutt. “Alanah is a dedicated student, a hardworking employee at River Roast, and the stage manager for the Spoon River College theater program,” said Tutt. “Though she is involved in many things, she continues to be kind to every peer, coworker, customer, and cast mate. She is taxed with so much responsibility yet she does not complain, always pulls through. She is exactly what an SRC student should strive to be.”

Howarter is working towards an associate of art degree. While her transfer plans are still undecided, she is planning to major in social work.

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.
