Houghton area student Micaela Geborkoff, has won a $2,000 Michigan State University Pre-College Achievement Scholarship.
Eighth through tenth grade students from this school year, who attended an MSU Summer pre-college program last year, were eligible for the award.
Geborkoff was part of the 4-H Exploration Days, which is one of six pre-college programs offered by MSU Extension 4-H Youth Development.
MSU’s pre-college programs are an excellent way for students to examine potential career choices, which will help them choose high school classes, to better prepare them for college.
Factors used in choosing the winner included academic ability, leadership and teamwork skills, the ability to overcome obstacles and program director nominations.
