Two Lake Land College students were among six students who were recognized recently at the annual Teaching and Learning Excellence Conference sponsored jointly by the Illinois Community College Faculty Association, the Illinois Community College Board and the Illinois Community College Trustees Association.
Melanie M. Adams, Sullivan, received the Dr. Stephen W. Charry Memorial Scholarship, the highest award at $1,500. Tiffani K. McCormick, Dennison, received a $1,000 scholarship.
Each year, the Illinois Community College Faculty Association awards scholarships to deserving students currently enrolled in an Illinois community college. Students are selected for the scholarships based on their record of academic achievement and volunteer community service. Additional scholarship recipients were Rebekah A. Kaeb, Heartland Community College; Katie A. Kuska, Parkland College; Liesl LaDuke, Parkland College; and Suzanne R. Peterson, Parkland College.
The scholarships were presented by Gregory Clemons, professor of music and chair of the department of music at Harper College in Palatine, who serves as director of the ICCFA Scholarship Program.
Adams is majoring in psychology and McCormick is majoring in nursing.
