Montana Tech Students Receives "Mentor of the Year"



Butte, MT – Cory Sonneman, a Montana Tech chemistry student, will be presented the “Mentor of the Year Award” by Montana State Attorney General, Steve Bullock on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 10:00 am in Pintler Room located in the Student Union Building on Montana Tech’s campus.

Cory’s enthusiasm for science is evident both in and out of the classroom. For the past two years Cory has worked as a chemistry tutor for the Montana Tech Montana Minds Scholarship as well as participating in the Big Brothers and Sisters program. While other students may find college academics stressful and demanding, Cory has gone the extra mile by organizing and performing science demonstrations to young impressionable students at several local schools and youth organizations. “Cory is a fun, enthusiastic promoter of science and education to young people and he is good at it,” states Doug Coe, Dean of the College of Letters, Sciences & Professional Studies.

Cory will graduate in May 2010 and plans to continue his education in medical school.
