After speaking with Carson’s employers I have chosen him to be my student of the month because he goes above and beyond for others. He is very hardworking, respectful and willing to help anyone in need without being asked. His employers spoke so highly of him and I am so proud of the way he is representing North Hall and Work-Based Learning.
