Tregaskes, a PTK member, has completed his studies at NPC and the next stop for him is in Tanzania, where he will serve a two-year religious mission. Following that time, he'll move on to the University of Louisiana, Lafayette to major in engineering.
"I've always appreciated how the Northland Pioneer College faculty became familiar with and supportive of my endeavors," Tregaskes says. "They're very nice and helpful, and I've had a lot of good instructors."
Winning the Honors Graduate award brought "a nice feeling of pride that my hard work paid off," Tregaskes says. "I've always lived by the standard of doing my best and being happy with whatever results."
This academic standout's favorite quote comes from Mother Theresa, who said: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
