This year's Scholarship Awards Breakfast was our biggest and best yet. Each year we invite our scholarship recipients and donors to a special recognition breakfast to showcase student success. As of 9/30/2010, the Foundation had awarded 297 scholarships, amounting to over $340,000 for the 2010-2011 academic year and approximately 350 people attended the breakfast. At this event, many of the recipients and donors were able to meet, which builds a special relationship for everyone involved. Since last year's breakfast, we have added 31 new scholarship funds, because so many people care about our students futures! These scholarships make it possible for students to afford college and get the skills and training they need to enhance our community.
This year we had several wonderful speakers including Timothy Salisbury, Regional President of PNC Bank, speaking on behalf of the PNC scholarship that was established in 2010; Mark Edick, a former Foundation Scholarship recipient who is now a published author; Hannah Martin, the 2010-2011 LAFCU Scholarship Recipient; Bob Anderson, Treasurer of the LCC Foundation Board of Directors and founder of the Robert and Alana Anderson Healthcare Scholarship; Frank Bernier, founder of the Francis and Sandra Bernier Endowed Scholarship. Timothy, Bob, and Frank outlined their decision to donate to the Foundation to make student success possible. Our two student speakers, Mark and Hannah, spoke of the impact the scholarship award has made toward the pursuit of higher education.
We strive to highlight speakers from a variety of areas in order to effectively illustrate the impact of scholarships on student education. We enjoy being able to show the recipients how much their community cares about their success, as well as being able to show our donors the great impact they have on our students.
Aside from live speakers, we also had the premier of our 2010 Recipient Testimonials video. This video shares the stories of four Lansing Community College students and the impact our scholarships have made in their lives. If you would like to hear their story for yourself, check out the video at http://www.youtube.com/LCC1957#p/u/0/qkmFoK5plBQ .
We are so glad that this year has been so successful already! Thank you to everyone who has donated and volunteered their time with the LCC Foundation. Every scholarship opens one more door for a student. We hope each year brings even bigger and better awards than the year before. See you at next year's 2011 Scholarship Awards Breakfast!
YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE!!

“I am delighted that we have such a positive response to the need of our students by one of our local major corporations, such as Demmer,” states Pat Ouellette, the LCC Foundation Chairperson.
The establishment of the endowment fund continues a family tradition of support to Lansing Community College students. In 1990, Bill Demmer’s aunt and uncle, David and Karen Noe, established the Gustave A. and Marguerite Olofsson endowment fund in memory of their parents and Mr. Demmer’s grandparents. The Olofsson Endowment Fund also supports students in the Manufacturing Engineering Technology programs.
“The Lansing Community College has a unique skill set that can train and retrain our regional population for the new economy. Private businesses have historically been the real job generators of our society. One of the best ways for our economy to meet foreign competition is for our work force to be in constant training and skill development. Our community colleges are at the fore front of that effort. I hope that in some small way that our contribution to Lansing Community College inspires and helps our regional workforce to build world class skills,” comments donor William Demmer.
