Adam Brands, ADBC II, was recently presented with the Lance Carter Memorial Just Peachy award. This semi-annual award recognizes one student each semester for having a positive, upbeat attitude throughout the course of a semester, good attendance, a self-starter, a willing participant in projects and activities, a class influencer/leader/motivator, and in good academic standing. Each recipient is selected by consensus of the general education department at MTI.
The award is presented in memory of long-time MTI Admissions director Lance Carter. Due to Parkinson's disease, Carter had to take early retirement in 1999 and it was complications from Parkinson's that took his life in March 2009 at age 65.
Brands of Edgerton, Minnesota, receives $100 and his name will be engraved on a plaque displayed at MTI.
