Eric Tuchscher, Kiwanis youth services chair, introduced three freshman students from Jamestown College who are Kiwanis Awards recipients at the April 19 Kiwanis noon luncheon meeting in the Lantern Room.
The actual awards were given at the JC Awards Day at Voorhees Chapel April 22, but this gave Kiwanis members the opportunity to meet the students and share a meal. Receiving the Kiwanis Freshman Mathematics Award is Joelle Reiser, a chemistry and mathematics major from Washburn, N.D. Her parents are Kay and Steve Reiser.
The recipients of the two Kiwanis Business Administration Awards are Eric Haas and Todd Nagel. Haas is working toward a Bachelor of Arts in accounting and real estate. He is a native of Jamestown and has been an active member of the Jamestown Rural Fire Department for six years. Nagel’s major is business management and sports and leisure management. He is the son of Gary and Kathy Nagel, Strasburg, N.D.

Darlene VanderVorst, past Region One lieutenant governor, Mandan, presented a Distinguished President Kiwanis pin to club President Galen Rasmussen. Region One Lt. Gov. Susie Kapelovitz, Dickinson, presented the Distinguished Secretary Kiwanis pin to club Secretary DeLette Winkelman. Each one spoke about the awards presented and appreciation to the club and its officers.
