The Voice: Fall 2002
Each year, six first-year students are given a $7,500 Distinguished Scholar Award. To be considered for this award, students must have a minimum 3.75 grade point average and an ACT composite score of 30. The students who were eligible were invited to Dordt College Distinguished Scholar Day in February, where they wrote a response to an essay question. The final six were chosen on the basis of their essay response. This year, the Distinguished Scholars are:
Kristi Cecil from Wentworth, South Dakota, a pre-physical therapy major.
Sara Gerritsma from St. Catharines, Ontario, a psychology major.
Ruth Lynch from Spokane, Washington, a music major.
Alicia Mulder from Waupun, Wisconsin, an elementary education major.
Jonathan Vander Vliet from Sheldon, Iowa, an engineering major.
Christopher Van Huis from Spruce Grove, Alberta, an engineering major.
