Lake Land College attracts top graduates from area high schools

For the 2013-2014 academic year, 17 valedictorians and seven salutatorians from area high schools enrolled at Lake Land College. 

“Lake Land College continues to attract the top graduates from area high schools because of the college’s reputation for academic quality, transferability of courses and career opportunities following graduation,” said Tina Stovall, vice president for student services. “The college’s Academic Talented Student Award program also attracts top graduates as it provides an opportunity for two top ranking graduates from each high school to receive a tuition waiver.”
