Kaitlynn Tutt of Canton was the recipient of the Student Shout-Out for September at Spoon River College, and will receive a $100 Visa gift card. Tutt was recognized for being “an energetic student who is embracing the college experience” and for the kindness she shows to other students.

“Kaitlynn wrote down her contact information for a new student during the first week, and said ‘contact me.’ I remember what it’s like to be a freshman and have so many questions, and I was inspired by Kaitlynn’s generosity and caring for this student,” said student success coach Andrea White. “This is the type of spirit we hope all of our students have towards one another to make SRC a welcoming and safe environment for all.”

Tutt is in her second year at Spoon River College and plans to transfer to WIU to major in education. While at SRC she has been active in the theatre program and STAGE, SGA, serves as a Student Ambassador, and works in the SRC River Roast Coffee Co. Pictured with Tutt is President Oldfield.

The Student Shout-Out is a new 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.
