Sara Nickolson, of Raymond, has been named a William Winter Scholar Student at the upcoming Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration.
Nickolson, who is studying elementary education on the Raymond Campus, aspires to one day teach English.
Each year, several outstanding Humanities Division faculty members, students and professionals from Mississippi colleges and universities are named William Winter Scholars at the event held since 1990. The honor allows them to attend most of the NLCC free of charge.
This year’s event will be Feb. 24-26 and is themed “Mississippi: A Tapestry of American Life.”
