July 8, 2010

ROCK HILLóAt a ceremony in Greenville last week, York Technical College student Phyllis Boger received the 2009 Carolina Careers Governorís Award for the Student of the Year in the two-year college category. Bogerís accomplishment marks the seventh time since 2000 that the award has gone to a York Tech student.

Boger graduated in May with an associate degree in Administrative Office Technology.

In addition to being a good student during her time at York Tech, Boger also completed a hugely successful internship with the City of Rock Hillís City Administration Department, and still found time to volunteer extensively on campus and off.
