EWC rodeo students receive NIRA Scholar American Honors

Eastern Wyoming College has announced that four rodeo student-athletes have received recognition as 2014 Scholar Americans.  The National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) recognizes student athletes who have earned points at a 2013-2014 NIRA sanctioned rodeo, been in college for more than one term, earned at 3.5 cumulative grade point average, and have been nominated by their rodeo coach.

Cody Colman, O’Neill, NE; Josh Davison, Miles City, MT; Jacob Etzkorn, Fort Pierre, SD; and Sadie Gjermundson, Halliday, ND, each received this honor.

“I’m proud of what these students have accomplished in the classroom.  The hard work and time they have put in to their rodeo skills and their education is valued by their teammates and coach,” shared EWC Rodeo Coach Jake Clark.
