Academic honors for 55 Aggie students at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture were announced Thursday.

“I am proud of these students making the Deans’ List and Honor Roll for the fall semester of 2021,” said NCTA Dean Larry Gossen.

“We were fortunate to again provide all in-person classes at NCTA throughout 2021,” Gossen said. “The students were committed to some unique initiative in the coursework, all while being active in campus organizations, competition and travel teams, and providing community service here in Curtis and southwest Nebraska.”

Students must be fulltime enrollees, with at least 12 credit hours for the semester to be eligible for the academic designations.

 “As the only two-year campus of the University of Nebraska system, NCTA offers academics solely in veterinary technology and agriculture sciences,” said Jennifer McConville, associate dean. “Aggie students are impressive not only in their experiential learning capabilities, but in leadership, campus employment, serving as student ambassadors and keeping our campus a close-knit, vibrant atmosphere.”

 Nine Aggie students earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average for the Dean’s List. The 46 students with a GPA of 3.5 to 3.99 achieved the Deans Honor Roll.
