Mid-Plains Community College is recognizing two people as friends of the College for 2013.
Tony Orr and Erik Erikson were both honored at the college's monthly board meeting held tonight in North Platte.
This is part of a relationship that the college has with Union Pacific Railroad.
"We have been working with the railroad for over four decades," said MPCC Spokesperson, Chuck Salestrom. "Since 2008 we have trained well over 12,00 UPRR employees all over the country. We're so happy that they were recognized by the state of Nebraska but better recognized that they're part of the Mid–Plains Community College as Friend of the College for 2013."
Other business from the meeting included a report of a clean audit of the college's finances from an independent auditor.
