Do you know a successful Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) graduate in your community?
After graduating from NICC, many alumni continue to make outstanding contributions to their professions and their local communities.
As a graduate of the college’s Ag-Business Management program in 1994, Kelly Holthaus is a standout alumnus. NICC inducted Holthaus, who lives in Decorah, into the Hall of Fame in 2011 to recognize him for his career success, volunteer work, service and leadership in the community.
In his role with Monsanto, Holthaus represents the national corn and soybean seed brands DEKALB & ASGROW in the three-county area of Winneshiek, Allamakee and Clayton. In 2010, he won the Master Sales Award, a Monsanto honor that placed his accomplishments in the top one percent of sales representatives internationally. Holthaus credits his business success to product performance and the strong relationships he cultivates with people, clients, the community and NICC.
“NICC instructors did a second-to-none job getting me prepared,” said Holthaus, when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Successful NICC alumni, like Kelly Holthaus, contribute their leadership, talents and expertise in communities throughout Northeast Iowa, and the NICC Foundation is currently accepting nominations of NICC alumni to be inducted into the college’s 2014 Hall of Fame.
The nomination deadline is Monday, Sept. 1.
