RCTC is excited to announce RCTC sophomore Lydia Hansen was selected to receive the Mark M. Welter World Citizen Award and Scholarship. From Racine, Minnesota, Hansen is planning to complete her associate’s degree from RCTC and then transfer next fall to Hamline University to complete her bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and International Journalism.

Hansen was one of 20 students from Minnesota State selected to receive this honor. Through the generosity of Dr. Mark Welter, this award provides an annual tribute to Minnesota State students who exemplify an understanding of the interconnected nature of the world, its nations, and all people; who are in good academic standing; and who demonstrate financial need. Hansen was nominated for this award by RCTC Communications Studies instructor, Annie Clement.
