March 14, 2006

Heather Clark of Stockton, a full-time business management student at Wor-Wic Community College, was selected to receive this year’s $500 faculty honors scholarship.

Selection is based on scholastic achievement and an essay competition judged by the honors program committee at Wor-Wic. Applicants were required to write a 500-word essay discussing the effects of communication devices on the present and future lives of American teens. Clark’s award-winning essay was called “Will Communication Devices Hinder the Communication Skills of Teens?”

Clark is enrolled in the honors program at the college, and is a member of Wor-Wic’s Alpha Nu Omicron chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. She has maintained a 4.0 grade point average since entering the college in the spring of 2004.

She is scheduled to graduate from Wor-Wic in May of 2007, and plans to transfer to Salisbury University and major in business.

Clark trains horses and riders professionally and is working on starting her own business, HLC Equestrian Management, in Stockton.

She and her husband, Michael Rippetoe, a quality control inspector at Maxum Marine in Salisbury, have a two-year-old daughter, Michalah.
