Yahya Aldholmi, a May 2018 Master of Science in Information Technology graduate, has been elected September's "Student of the Month" by Concordia University Wisconsin's faculty.
The award is voted upon every month during the academic year by all full-time Concordia University Wisconsin faculty members.
Aldholmi’s capstone project was the top one produced last semester and one of the best in years, according to Dr. Gary Locklair, longtime chair of CUW’s Computer Science Department. “Yahya was a dedicated, hard-working, prepared and conscientious student,” noted Locklair, who nominated him for the award. “In several courses, he prepared papers that were worthy of publication.”
“Not only did the product he developed work well in his project,” continued Locklair, “he demonstrated mastery of a number of techniques and applied them effectively.”
Aldholmi currently is a researcher for the Arabic Department at Kansas State University, and is a PhD student in the linguistics department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
"Yahya was a dedicated, hard-working, prepared and conscientious student," noted Locklair, who nominated him for the award. "In several courses, he produced papers that were worthy of publication."
