• Northern Oklahoma College instructor Tammy Davis has been selected as a 2012 DaVinci Fellow by the DaVinci Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing the arts, sciences, humanities and education in Oklahoma.

Davis, who teaches language arts on the Stillwater campus, will be honored at the annual banquet to be held March 23 at the Oklahoma History Center along with Dr. Gary Grady, Connors State College; Dr. Tim Hubin, Southwestern Oklahoma State University; Dr. Harbour Winn, Oklahoma City University; and Mark Zimmerman, University of Central Oklahoma.

Davis was nominated for the award in recognition of her history of innovation and creativity. Her most recent project demonstrating these attributes is a service learning project conducted in a partnership between Northern Oklahoma College and Lincoln Academy, an alternative school for Stillwater Public Schools. Through this project, students were engaged in a project that developed their writing skills while strengthening core values.

At the banquet, new DaVinci Fellows will each receive a monetary prize and a medallion depicting Leonardo DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man.

Rafael Rodriguez, Stillwater, has been offered a Cardinal Newman Scholarship worth more than $77,552 from Newman University.

Rodriguez    is a senior at Stillwater High School.
