Eastern Arizona College recently awarded 58 students with academic and skills awards for the 2020-2021 academic year. Because of COVID-19, the annual, in-person ceremony was painstakingly conducted via Zoom and an edited, video presentation of the event will be aired on EAC’s YouTube channel on Wednesday, April 21, at 7 p.m.

“The Student Awards Ceremony is one of my favorite events of the year,” said Gina Roebuck, EAC’s coordinator of counseling services and host of this event. “I love it because many of the awards are chosen by the students and faculty that work with the recipient every day, and I think that makes these awards priceless.”
