Lake Land College’s Student Services Foundation Scholarship Committee announces scholarship recipients

The Lake Land College Foundation recently awarded $4,000 in scholarships on behalf of the Student Services Foundation Scholarship Committee and the Laura Brandenburg Memorial Scholarship.  

This year, eight students were awarded $500 each. Six students received scholarships from the Student Services Foundation Scholarship fund and the other two students were awarded scholarships from the Laura Brandenburg Memorial Scholarship. All funding awarded to students was raised by the Student Services Foundation Scholarship Committee. 

Students who received the Student Services Foundation Scholarship were: Beverly Notaro, Oakland; Tara Johnson, Brownstown; Alexandria Binion, Mattoon; Megan Miller, Effingham; Breeana Lankford, Charleston; and Jeannetta Woomer, Effingham. Hollie Austin, Brocton, and Kaitlyn Nead, Charleston, received the Laura Brandenburg Memorial Scholarship.

The Student Services Foundation Scholarship Committee formed in 2002 and awarded the first scholarship in 2003. As of December 2013, the committee has provided assistance to 74 students, totaling $37,400.  

Scholarship recipients must be in good academic standing and seeking a degree or certificate. Other considerations include G.P.A., financial aid status, other scholarship awards, community and academic activities and employment.  

“The goal of the Student Services Foundation Scholarship Committee is to help the students who are trying to help themselves, but are still struggling,” said Lisa Leisch, committee member and administrative assistant to counseling services at the college.  

Volunteers within the Student Services wing at Lake Land College make up the Student Services Scholarship Committee and have created several ways for people to donate to their cause.  Fundraising for the scholarships this year has been done through bake sales, themed basket ticket sales, and Combined Charities payroll deductions through the Lake Land College Foundation Office.

Committee members include: Jackie Huddlestun, administrative assistant to the vice president of student services; Sharon Uphoff, college nurse;  Seirra Laughhunn, student services specialist; Marlene Meek, administrative assistant to student life; Andrea Bright, student services specialist; Paula Smith, coordinator of enrollment services; Valerie Lynch, director of student life; Jennifer Melton, director of international studies programs; Jane Cox, student assistance specialist; Kellie Keck, counseling services specialist; and Lisa Leisch, administrative assistant to counseling services.

The Lake Land College Foundation was established exclusively for educational, scientific and charitable purposes. The Foundation assists the college in developing and enhancing the educational opportunities and service to its students, alumni and citizens of the district. The thrust of the Foundation is to provide student scholarships through funds contributed by individuals, agencies and corporations.
