A Waubonsee Community College student was recently awarded the Jon H. Poteat Scholarship.
Gisel Leija Montoya, of Aurora, moved to Aurora in 2017 from Mexico. She graduated from West Aurora High School in 2018 and began classes at Waubonsee that fall. She is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and the National Technical Honor Society, which awards the $1,000 Jon H. Poteat Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to just 250 students across the country.
