BRENDA HUNZINGER IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Her hybrid online/lab class was great. I think that all of the online courses should be set up like hers.

Devore MARK NIEMERG IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE I liked his classes the most and learned the most from them. Austin Simmons HEIDI
BIRDSONG IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE First semester was difficult with switching teachers, clinical instructors, back and forth. Second semester was difficult, too, starting on newer, harder material with Mrs. Dow for a few weeks, then Mrs. Birdsong and Mrs. Beam switching and essentially tag-teaming the teaching of our class on campus. I will never forget that day in lab with Mrs. Birdsong the day she took over. We had just taken an OB test that didn't go very well for us. She played us a video from a college graduation. It was a very uplifting speech the man delivered. After the video had us all basically in tears, Mrs. Birdsong had an
equally uplifting and tearful speech to give to us. Between the video and Mrs. Birdsong, we all got one piece of advice: Just. Keep. Going. One test doesn't define you as a student. One test will not define your future career. We are exceptional people who have fought hard to be where we are and need to pick our sorry heads up and continue that fight. It got me through the semester. It was that day we all knew we Wyatt got someone Lewis who was invested in us as we were in being here. ALLEN DRAKE IS MAKING A
DIFFERENCE Allen had helped me get into the program when the dealership did not want anymore tech students. He also helped me when I had trouble and answered any questions I had. He also made sure that I got to graduate and did not let me just quit. Alexander Stirek LORI RENTFROW IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Marko is very dedicated to the TRiO program and to the students that are in the program. He is a fine addition to the college. He contributes so much to the students and the college and has made the relationship between the students and the college so much stronger. He is still working on making improvements anywhere that he can to benefit both students and the college. I would like to recognize him for all of the effort that he puts into it and all of the good that comes out of it. I give Marko credit for me making it all the way to the end. He gave of his time unselfishly and became my rock through the good times and the rough times. I could come to him with anything that I was having a problem with and he would work feverishly trying to help me find a solution. He gave me a lot of good advice, and he encouraged me all the way. I have never had the support of my family in pursuing my dream
of getting an education, and Marko made the biggest difference in my life by being my biggest fan. I wish that I could nominate him for man of the year, or better yet, hero of the year because that is what he has been to me.

me realize how much I love giving speeches, so much that I chose to change my major to Speech Communications. Steven Brown BRENDA HUNZINGER IS MAKING A instructor for Biology 101. DIFFERENCE
Mrs. Hunzinger was my My first attempt at this course was in August 1995. I was highly UNsuccessful at it and had absolutely NO desire to take it again. Twenty years later, I'm currently enrolled in this course, and I actually enjoy it. Her style of teaching is engaging and causes you to want to know more about the subject. I'm not just memorizing the material, I'm learning it. That makes all of the difference in the world. Shelissa Jones
BRIAN LYNCH IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Mr. Lynch was my Economics I instructor in Spring 2015. I appreciate his lesson plan structure and style of teaching.

MARIA NOHREN IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Mrs. Nohren is very through when explaining a rationale. Shawna Ohl KIM DAVIS IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
She helped me get on the right track in my schooling. She quickly discovered what was a better "fit" for me as an academic advisor.

She is a great asset to the Future Educators Association (FEA) Club as she give her students a plethora of career-related experiences. Sarah Rhoads HEATHER
NOHREN IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE She is a great counselor that answered all the questions I had about any degree or certificate that I wanted to learn more about. Sara Headrick HELEN HENDREN

My personal communication skills improved dramatically from attending her class. She will always be one of my favorite teachers and a good friend outside of Lake Land. Austin Ashworth EVA RITCHEY IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE I took a speech class with Eva Ritchey as my instructor. She
made such a difference by her positive, outgoing, confident, and caring attitude. I strive to have the attitude that she does. The thing that I took most from this class was not how to give a speech, which I did learn how to do quite well, but how to present myself and how important having a great attitude is. How you think and act has a huge influence on you and everyone around you. Audrey Scott DUSTIN HEUERMAN
IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE In my academic years, Mr. Heuerman was very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable with all the problems that life threw at me when it came to impacting my school outlook. Gayle Hays TATUM HAWKINS IS MAKING A

BRIAN LYNCH IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Mr. Brian Lynch always made an effort in trying to help me succeed. He always encouraged me and was available whenever I needed him. He was friendly and easy to approach, which made seeking help a lot easier. I enjoyed all my classes with Mr. Lynch and would recommend him to anyone. Kristina Pollman BRENDA
HUNZINGER IS MAKING A After many years of being outDIFFERENCE of school I decided to go back. Mrs. Hunzinger was one of the first teachers that I had and made things very easy and very workable. She made me feel more comfortable with my degree choice (as for a short time she was my advisor) and helped me work towards that goal. More than anything she made classes interesting and challenging, creating a great environment for her students.

IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE She made labs enjoyable and fun. Rachel Hager GREG CAPITOSTI IS MAKING A Mr. Capitosti is one instructor I will never forget. I could not DIFFERENCE
imagine anybody making chemistry enjoyable but that is his forte. When I struggled in chemistry, he always devoted his time to answering any questions I had and would even pull up my canvas quizzes to run through how to answer the questions properly. His drill sergeant style of lecturing encouraged me to keep going and to take chemistry seriously. He is the most dedicated professor I have had and his teaching ability/style is Sarah Mummel one of the many reason I enjoyed Chem II.
NANCY GRANT IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Nancy became my mentor after my first class with her and within one year I exhausted all possible classes taught by her. She was the first one that made me aware of environmental hazards faced today and because of this, my lifestyle is not the same as it was two years ago. This year she has been kind enough to offer me a job in the backroom as a chemistry lab assistant and now potentially as a biology lab assistant. As I come to a close, I want to end with a quote she told me
recently. "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing." I will never forget this quote and will apply it to all endeavors within my field of Sarah Mummel study. Nancy has affected my life, and I will never forget her. JOHN CARPENTER IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Great advisor. Very detailed.
Roger Smith DUSTIN HEUERMAN IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE While taking his classes, I learned a great amount about my major. I feel this will be very helpful as I move on within the criminal justice field. Kyle Matthews
BEN COHAN IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE He made Art History really fun! Rachel Hubbartt ANGIE DAVISON IS MAKING A
DIFFERENCE Very nice and helpful! Cassandra Weddle LARA BACINO IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE I absolutely loved going to her classes. Lara just made class so fun and relatable. She was so passionate about psych that it
was interesting to learn. I have fallen in love with psychology, and I credit that to her because she was such a great teacher! You can see that she truly loves her students and is just down to earth and up front with us. I think that is part of being a teacher. If students can't relate to you on some level, then I think they have a harder time learning from you. She might not Kalen remember me, but I'll definitely remember her! Pennington DUSTIN
HEUERMAN IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Great instructor. Taught me a lot and allowed me to enter the world of law enforcement by providing me with an internship at Mattoon police department. Jose Hernandez LISA EARP IS MAKING A
DIFFERENCE I was in her Automated Office Procedures class in the Spring of 2015, and she really showed us how to work in a real working environment.

She helped set up a plan for me that would work with my schedule and always made sure I got into the classes I needed to. She is a wonderful person, and I'm so thankful that I got the chance to work with her through the years. I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for her helping me get started on this process! Molly Yockey
Thank you, Heather! TOM CALDWELL IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Tom is a wonderful example of someone who is quite well-rounded. His interests range from forestry to the Life Sciences to the fine arts to music to film and on and on. His background in the military is yet another aspect of his fascinating personality. He is anything but one-dimensional. Thanks to Tom, I was able to
spend time working on the Tree-Care-Committee, and he has utilized his connections to people in Carbondale to introduce me to forestry societies that will be invaluable to me for business connections and field experience. Also, people from the IDNR and the Corps of Engineers seem to know Mr. Caldwell very well, which speaks volumes of how many activities, organizations, research projects, etc. that he is involved in all over the state of Illinois outside of work. This ambitious, brilliant, amicable, and charismatic man has affected so many different Rachel Finney people in so many positive ways. He is without a doubt a great asset to Lake Land College.
BRENDA HUNZINGER IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Brenda was incredibly supportive - emotionally and academically - throughout my experience at LLC. She is charismatic, passionate about the Life Sciences, and engaging with all of her students. She always made sure to relate the material to reallife applications and all of the content was available online - via powerpoint presentations as well as video lectures that incorporated the powerpoint presentations; such resources cater to different learning types. The video lectures helped the material to resonate even more for me. It's because of instructors like Mrs. Hunzinger that
students develop a strong interest in the Life Sciences, and for those who have already chosen that path, their passion is further amplified. Whenever I ran into problems with my work for the Corps of Engineers or had questions about the content in her class, her door was always open. Her high level of intellect, strength, positive attitude, and passion for life itself continues to inspire me every single day. Also, for women who Rachel Finney strive to work in STEM fields, Brenda is a wonderful role model. Her work at Lake Land College is truly invaluable.

JOHN GENTRY IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Opened my mind to a lot of new things in a subject I had hit a brick wall in so to speak. Matthew Edwards KATHLEEN
DAUGHERTY IS MAKING A She believes in every student.DIFFERENCE She encourages us and never puts us down. She always takes time with her students. She does go by the book but she always goes above and beyond to help her students succeed. It would have been easy to drop her classes when I was struggling. If I dropped her classes, I would have dropped out because I needed them. I talked to Kathleen, and she believed in me and encouraged me to keep pressing
on. I did, and I am just about to graduate. She is the best Linda Hood teacher I have had in college. TERESA LANG IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE She is a great person to have around and have as an advisor. Nicole Waller
IKEMEFUNA NWOSU IS MAKING A He always made himself available for help and questions that I would have and never made DIFFERENCE me feel like my questions were elementary. He was not an "easy" professor by any means, but he was able to present the material in such a way that I was able to relate Microbiology to real life situations. I feel like his class has prepared me for the difficulty level that I will face
when I get into nursing school. Overall, he is a fabulous teacher, and I am truly blessed that I was able to take his class. Keri Clapp CHARLES JARRELL IS MAKING A He was my Intro to Education teacher and the division chair for DIFFERENCE Social Science. He always went
above and beyond for his students and made sure that they were getting the most out of the education as possible. When a lot of classes got cancelled this semester, he worked with me and got me into another class that I normally couldn't just so I could get the class in and graduate on time. Most teachers wouldn't do that for students, but he genuinely cares. Megan Cress SALISA OLMSTEAD

She is genuinely a very wonderful, respectful woman and deserves some recognition. I Natasha Martin will miss her dearly. SHANE

Kelli Fonner MARTHA MIOUX IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Martha pushed me to a level I didn't know I had in me. She believed in me. In all honesty I wasn't that crazy about her at first, she was very intimidating, and I didn't think she cared about the success of her students. But she proved me wrong. I gained a lot of respect for her at the end of the course, and I will say she is probably one of the best teachers I have had
throughout my college experience. Jill Weishaar STACIE OZIER & SALISA OLMSTEAD ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE I had dropped my class and they helped me get back in it so I
could finish. I am very grateful for their help in letting me continue my class.

As opposed to taking the latter two courses at U of I, I have chosen to take them with Dr. Capitosti because he is clearly very adept in his field and is an incredibly talented instructor.

Dr. Capitosti is undeniably an asset to Lake Land
College. DUSTIN HEUERMAN IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE Mr. Heuerman has been not only my instructor in some of my classes but he has also been my advisor. He has always been helpful in getting through my years at Lake Land College. He also truly cares for his students and tries to guide us in the

I've learned to study properly, jump into the unknown, and make a name for myself. I feel like me again.

I might never be able to come up with something someone else in my field does and vice versa which helps with the competition and also
