TESTIMONIALS

“One of the best decisions I have ever made was to begin my college journey at Lakeland. In just two years, I was able to finish all core class for the nursing program and maintain a 3.9 GPA while fulfilling my dream of playing college level softball. Lakeland provided me with all the tools and skills I needed in order to prepare for a four-year school and continue my education.” -Megan Passwaiter ‘11 Ursuline College (NCAA Div. II) Class of 2013 “As a graduate and former softball player at Lakeland Community College, playing gave me the opportunity to continue my collegiate career at the Division I level. Without the LCC softball program and scholarships, I otherwise would not have been able to attain those goals.” -Missy Rust Moon ‘93 St. Bonaventure University (NCAA Div. I) Class of 1995
