Congratulations to Kolbe Heroux, the president of the WSC chapter of Phi Eta Sigma, the national honor society for first-year students, who just won a $5,000 scholarship from the national chapter.
Ms. Heroux was inducted into the chapter her freshman year. She is a communication sciences and disorders major with a double minor in psychology and information science. She’s also a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society, and she participates in the Commonwealth Scholars Honors Program.
She’s the vice president of the campus chapter of Manna International, which she helped form after she participated in the college’s Alternative Spring Break program in Nicaragua last spring. She’s also a member of the Worcester State Dance Company. She does all this while holding two jobs. The College community is delighted that she’s received this scholarship and is a terrific example of an academic achiever who contributes a great deal to her community.
