PADUCAH student 300PADUCAH, Ky. (5/1/13) - Commonwealth Middle College student Chandni Joshi was recently named March Student of the Month at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

"Attending WKCTC through the middle college program has been a great blessing for me," Joshi said. "Getting to meet wonderful people and having the opportunity to be involved in several campus activities has encouraged me to continue my participation in the college and increased my passion for service."

Joshi, 18, is involved in several WKCTC organizations and serves as the Phi Theta Kappa president. CMC Principal Donna Wear said "Chandni's passion for people, her positive personality and her kind heart make her an excellent choice for Student of the Month."

Joshi will graduate first in her class from Heath High School in May and will be class valedictorian; she will also graduate with 40 college credit hours she earned through the middle college. Joshi plans to continue her education on the WKCTC campus; she has applied to the UK College of Engineering this fall.

The Student of the Month program is designed to recognize the accomplishments of students on campus. Individuals selected must be currently enrolled at WKCTC and have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher and are nominated on the basis of exceptional performance, personal attributes, academic excellence and active participation in various student organizational activities.

Student of the Month winners receive $100, a certificate of excellence, recognition in the college's newsletter, Facebook page, campus announcements and website.
