Area students make deans’ lists

Brothers Ethan and Caleb Post have both made the dean’s list for the winter quarter of 2011-12 at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, by achieving a 4.0 winter grade-point average.

Calvin College has also announced its fall 2011 dean’s list. To earn a spot on the dean’s list at Calvin requires that a student maintain at least a 3.5 grade-point average for the semester and have at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average at this, one of the country’s top Christian, liberal-arts colleges. The Rockford students who were named to the dean’s list are graduate Allison Thomson (speech-language pathology), senior Cassaundra Bell (English), senior Alexander Harris (biology), sophomore Elizabeth Huizenga (psychology), junior Tanya Kolenbrander (nursing), senior Samuel Lefurge-Mcleod (speech pathology and audiology), sophomore Bethany Radius (speech pathology and audiology), and senior Heather Sanderson (integrated science studies).

Sparta students who were named to Calvin College’s dean’s list are freshman Stephanie Anderson (biochemistry), freshman Kendra Burmeister (speech pathology and audiology), sophomore Morganna Piegols (literature), freshman Joseph Vander Weide (undecided), senior Mark Vander Weide (nursing), and senior Logan Knoppers (music).

Established in 1876 in Grand Rapids, Calvin has a 2011-2012 enrollment of 3,967 students, representing almost every U.S. state, many Canadian provinces and more than 50 other countries from around the globe. Thirty-six percent of that student body achieved dean’s list status during the fall semester.
