LTC Graduate earns Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship





CLEVELAND - Recent LTC graduate, Jacob Tarnowski, of Kiel was selected to receive the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Scholarship for the 2015-16 school year at the University of Wisconsin - Stout. The scholarship is for students who transfer directly from two-year colleges and are members of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. In addition, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.25, and have been accepted to UW-Stout. 


Tarnowski's transfer to UW-Stout was made easier through the Universal Transfer Agreement between UW and WTCS that went into effect on July 1, 2014. The agreement allows UW or technical college students to transfer with the assurance that they will satisfy general education or general degree requirements at the receiving institution. 


Tarnowski enrolled in the Information Technology - Web and Software Developer program at LTC in September 2014 and was inducted into LTC's Phi Theta Kappa honor society on April 2, 2015. He will receive $1,500 and major in game design and development-computer science at UW-Stout.
