Welcome to the first blog for the Lansing Community College Foundation! Technology sure is changing, and offering us new ways to stay in touch. The Foundation is jumping on board with a Blog to keep you informed of new scholarships, upcoming events and ways to support LCC students.
So, please talk to us through this Blog. Let us know your ideas or thoughts about the good work of the Foundation. We are always looking for new ways to connect with donors, students, employees and retirees.
The house next to this text is the home of the LCC Foundation. See my office?- it is the one behind the upstairs balcony. Working in a beautiful historic home like this is a treat. The woodwork and architecture is special and we enjoy working here. We always have something new going on. Lately we have been visited by squirrels in the attic. I think they like having parties up there.
Sharing the house with me (and the squirrels) is Peggy Hellwig, the Scholarship Coordinator. She has the best job of matching student applicants with scholarship funds and then gets to give the money away! Beth Vanderlip is the database specialist, who makes sure every gift is logged into a database, thank you notes are sent and giving reports are done. Andrew Lathrop is busy connecting with LCC Alumni as the Alumni Relations and Annual Campaign Manager. Each week we find more and more alumni and love sharing their stories of success. LCC is truly where success begins! We hear that from our Alumni. Cora Huguely is busy planning the next Foundation special event and keeping the student employees busy. We are fortunate to have four part time student employees working with us. It is great to see them balance work, school and home life so well.
Our introductions are made. Now please introduce yourself to us with this Blog? I look forward to hearing back from you! Have a wonderful day and a fantastic weekend! Keep Smiling!
