Congratulations to Sheridan College student Rósborg Halldórsdóttir, who has won the 2017 NWCCD Student of the Year award!
The Sheridan Press published the following article on February 27, 2018, about Rósborg’s accomplishments:
When Rósborg Halldórsdóttir arrived at Sheridan College in July 2016 from Mosfellsbaer, Iceland, she didn’t intend to study music. Halldórsdóttir enjoyed playing the trumpet but considered it more of a passionate hobby than a possible career.
Halldórsdóttir planned to study chemistry and play volleyball for two years. That all changed when she attended her first band rehearsal and quickly added a music major.
A double major of chemistry and music is just one small part of what makes Halldórsdóttir stand out. She received the Northern Wyoming Community College District 2017 Student of the Year award and was also nominated to compete for the statewide Student of the Year Award, given last week by the Wyoming Association of Community College Trustees.
