Lake Land College dental hygiene students receives Fletcher Scholarship

This fall, two Lake Land College second-year dental hygiene students were awarded the Linda Lee Roberts Fletcher Memorial Scholarship. During a surprise visit by Lake Land College President Josh Bullock, Whitlee Blakeman of Effingham and Ashley Spencer of Paris learned they were the recipients of this scholarship. 

“I’m pleased to be here this morning to award two very deserving young women this scholarship,” said Bullcok.  “These students’ interest and demonstrated skills in the program are an asset to the dental health field.”

The Linda Lee Roberts Fletcher Memorial Endowment, administered by the Lake Land College Foundation, was established in memory of Fletcher, a former local dental hygienist.  The scholarship is presented annually in October in honor of Fletcher’s birthday. Scholarships are awarded annually to second-year Lake Land students studying dental health. Awarding of the scholarship is based on the student’s financial need, interest and promotion of dental health.

Nearly 430 scholarships were awarded during the 2012-2013 academic year, and the Foundation hopes to surpass that number of awards for this academic year. Students may still submit a completed application to the Foundation office in the event a scholarship becomes available. 

Applications for the 2014-2015 academic year are due Friday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. Scholarship awards range from $100 to $3,500 per year. Students who submit a completed application to the Foundation office after the deadline will be considered, as funding permits and individual needs are determined.  Please note that only one application needs to be completed for consideration of all Foundation Scholarships, but some scholarships such as the Faculty Association Scholarship may require additional information. 

For more information about scholarships or establishing an endowment, please visit the Foundation website at www.lakeland.cc.il.us/foundation or the Foundation office at (217) 234-5363.
