Lydia Bradrick of Pelican Rapids, a second-year student in the Associate Degree Nursing program at Minnesota State Community and Technical College, has been awarded a $500 Mark M. Welter World Citizen Award.
Bradrick, who attends M State’s Fergus Falls campus, was nominated for the award by Fergus Area College Foundation.
FACF Executive Director Lori Larson wrote in her nomination that Bradrick “shows the signs of a true giving heart. She talks about how she has had the privilege to serve people in different volunteer roles. Further, she is planning on helping at a hospital in Angola for six weeks after graduation before returning to the Pelican Rapids area.”
The Mark Welter World Citizen Award is a tribute to Minnesota State students who best exemplify the thoughts, words and actions demanded by citizens of an interconnected 21st century world. Only one student can be recognized by each of Minnesota State’s 30 two-year colleges and seven universities.
