Renton Technical College fell short in its quest for a $1 million prize courtesy of the Aspen Institute.

The school was one of 10 finalists considered for the organization’s 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.

The prize, awarded every two years, is the nation’s signature recognition of high achievement and performance among community colleges.

The top prize went to Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida.

“We thank Renton Technical College for participating in this year’s Aspen Prize process, and for helping define excellence for community colleges nationwide,” Joshua Wyner, executive director of the Aspen Institute for College Excellence, said in a news release.

Wyner went on to commend the school’s commitment “to providing higher education access and expanding job opportunities for its highly diverse student body.”

“This is a tremendous honor that recognizes the extraordinary contributions of RTC’s faculty and staff to the success of our students,” Renton Technical College President Steve Hanson said last year.
