Dalli Conner

Dalli Conner, SKCTC Middlesboro Campus Student of the Month

Southeast Kentucky Community

and Technical College (SKCTC) has named its Students of the Month for April 2019:

— Jamie Lawson, Pineville Campus

— Sara Hatton, Whitesburg Campus

— Jared Boggs, Harlan Campus

— Dalli Conner , Middlesboro Campus

— Regan Nicole Caudill, Cumberland Campus

Surgical technology student Jamie Lawson, Jr. chose Southeast, he says, for “multiple reasons.” Like most students, Jamie wanted to stay near family and earn his credentials affordably. He also says that the “smaller class sizes allowed me to learn in a comfortable environment, and the flexible schedule allowed me to work while taking classes.”

Following graduation this May, education major Sara Hatton plans to further her education by

pursuing speech pathology. She says she chose Southeast so that she could achieve her credentials

locally and “still be available to serve my family and community.”

Jared Boggs, a Kentucky State Police Sergeant in Harlan County, already holds an associate degree

from Southeast, but he is currently working on a second degree in carpentry. He says that he is able

to juggle his roles as a father, and a student, and as a police officer because of the flexible hours

offered by the college. He adds, “I love the atmosphere here.”

Middlesboro student Dalli Conner plans to graduate with his associate of arts degree in May.

He says he chose our college “because of the great staff and because they care about their students’

education.” Dalli has also shown great resilience despite significant setbacks. He has walked to

campus throughout his two years of study.

Regan Nicole Caudill was recently accepted into Southeast’s RN Program. She will begin this fall and

plans to graduate in 2021. She looks forward to two more years at Southeast because, she says, “So

far my experience has been nothing but amazing.”

Each SKCTC campus has a Student of the Month selection committee appointed by its campus

director. In making its choice, the committee weighs criteria such as academic performance,

extracurricular activities, work ethic, helpfulness to others, and whether the student has had to

overcome significant barriers in achieving academic success.
