For the second time in a row, MState Community and Technical College is being recognized as one of the top 10% community colleges in the nation. The award by the Aspen Institute makes the college eligible to compete in the 2013 Aspen Prize for community college excellence.

That distinction comes with a $1 million reward. This is the second consecutive year M-State has been eligible for the award which ranks the best 120 out of 1,200 community colleges.

Carrie Brimhall – Fergus Falls Campus Provost: “We don't have a gap in student achievement, so all students who attend M-State are achieving at the same rate, which says a lot about how we work every day with each of our students.”

NDSCS in Wahpeton also received the same distinction.
