SANFORD — Central Carolina Community College student Jamie Yeatman was among 58 North Carolina Community College System students recognized for academic excellence at the system’s “The Great Within the 58” event April 14 at N.C. State University.

Yeatman, the daughter of Gail and Hubert Yeatman, of Dunn, and a 2008 Triton High School graduate, is a second-year Laser and Photonics Technology student at the college’s Harnett County Campus.

“My instructors encourage me,” Yeatman said. “I feel like they want me to succeed and I enjoy learning from them.”

Yeatman also serves as a CCCC student Ambassador. In 2009, she presented a paper on Problem Based Learning for photonics students at the SPIE international society’s Optics and Photonics Symposium in San Diego. 

The 58 students recognized had previously been honored for academic excellence by their individual colleges. At the NCCCS event, each received a plaque and medallion in honor of their accomplishments.
