Kristin L. Romberg, of Soldotna, was cited for outstanding academic achievement during the spring term of 2001 at Dartmouth College. Romberg is the daughter of David and Cyndi Romberg of Soldotna. Members of the Dartmouth faculty are invited to submit citation reports only when a student's work is sufficiently distinguished to merit special recognition. Such citations are rare, typically only a few undergraduates receive citations each term. Dartmouth is noted as a highly competitive college and has a total enrollment of 4,300 undergraduates and more than 1,000 graduate students in engineering, business and medicine.
Michelle Borden, attending Kenai Peninsula College, was awarded a $500 scholarship from the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) in conjunction with a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant.
The grant allows AHFC to offer several programs, including the Community Enrichment scholarship. The scholarship will provide financial assistance to low-income students to attend higher education or vocational schools in their immediate surrounding community. The scholarships help cover the direct cost (tuition, student fees, books and required supplies) for a semester, term or program at their selected school.
