Alpena High students awarded full scholarships to LSSU

Three Alpena High School students have been awarded full-tuition scholarships to Lake Superior State University.

Danielle Schackman and Joshua Nowicki have been awarded the Lake Superior State University Presidential Scholarship, while Hannah Burger has been awarded the Top 10% Scholarship.

All three scholarships are for full tuition — 12 to 16 credits — beginning with the 2020-21 academic year, and are renewable for three additional years, granted the student meets the renewable requirements. The awarded students must meet full-time enrollment status — 12 or more credits — and be an on-campus student.

AHS senior earns CAP award

Alpena High School Senior Nickoli D’Agrella was awarded the Civil Air Patrol’s Brigadier General Billy Mitchell Award on Dec. 14.

The Mitchell Award marks the completion of Phase II of the CAP Cadet Program, recognizing sustained excellence in all four areas of cadet life: leadership, aerospace, fitness, and character. Once a cadet earns the Mitchell Award, he or she becomes a cadet officer and promoted to the grade of cadet second lieutenant. They are also challenged to lead and serve junior-ranking cadets, while continuing to develop into a “dynamic American and aerospace leader.” Only 15% of Civil Air Patrol cadets achieve the Mitchell Award.

In February, D’Agrella will represent Michigan in Washington D.C. to converse with senators and representatives about the Civil Air Patrol program.
