Crosby is CMCC Student of the Year
May 1, 2015
Brianna May Crosby of Wayne has been selected as Student of the Year at Central Maine Community College (CMCC). She and six other Maine community college students were honored recently for their academic success and campus and community involvement at a ceremony in Augusta hosted by the Maine Community College System (MCCS) Board of Trustees.
The award winners were selected by college faculty and staff. Each of the students will be awarded a John H. Lapoint, Jr. Leadership Award in the amount of $1,000. Mr. Lapoint was president of UF Strainrite in Lewiston and a trustee of the Maine Community College System. After his death in 1995, his widow, Jana Lapoint, served on the Board from 1995 to 2006 and helped establish the fund for the annual awards.
Crosby graduated with President’s Honors from the Culinary Arts certificate program last year. She immediately resumed her studies and will earn an associate’s degree in Business Administration and Management this year with a perfect 4.0 GPA. A member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, Crosby plans to travel overseas and continue her studies at the baccalaureate level in the fall.
