he spring semester is almost here and it’s hard to imagine that my first academic year as president of the college is almost half over. During my first months as president, I have spent time getting to know the citizens and communities throughout the Lake Land College district. My family and I have enjoyed touring the countryside, relaxing at Lake Shelbyville, shopping in Arcola and enjoying the exquisite Amish fudge.
For instance on pages 8-9, learn about the innovative creations that students in our Human Computer Interaction class have built. Or on page 6, learn how to knock out a general education requirement by studying a show like South Park. Finally, on pages 12-13, meet students in our Highway Careers Construction Training Program who are gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to enter local labor unions.
As we look forward to a new calendar year, the college will begin engaging the citizens, business and community leaders in our district in a strategic planning process for the college. As the higher education and business landscape evolves, we want to ensure we are meeting the educational and workforce training needs essential to the economic viability of our region. In the next few months, we will invite you to be a part of this exciting process and I sincerely look forward to your feedback.
Whether your goal is pursuing a degree, taking a class or participating in a community activity, you will find our dedicated and friendly faculty and staff eager to serve you and ready to be a partner in your pathway to success. We invite you to visit us online or in-person on campus. We’d like to get to know you and hope you’ll consider becoming part of the Lake Land College family.

EastCentralIllinoisEvents.com, a newly developed regional tourism website gives residents and visitors to east central Illinois information about events happening in their area like farmer’s markets, festivals, family activities and seasonal events.
hat’s there to do in central Illinois? Well, if you ask Jean Anne Grunloh, executive director of the East Central Illinois Development Corporation (ECIDC), she would tell you a lot.
Over the past year, Grunloh along with Lake Land College and Imagine This! Marketing in Effingham have teamed up in order to develop a new tourism website highlighting community events, festivals and tourism activities for the 11 counties within the region. “Our goal was to create a one-stop website for community event information for residents and visitors,” said Grunloh. “The website is user-friendly, easy to navigate and users can access tons of information about east central Illinois.” For the website, www.EastCentralIllinoisEvents.com, Lake Land donated in-kind support including web hosting and it continues to offer ongoing technical support. The website features a calendar of events, wine trails, recreation trails, festivals, farmers’ markets, community events, family activities and maps. According to Grunloh, the organization’s recent success with the East Central Illinois Wine Trail map, another partnership with Lake Land College, led to the idea for the website.
economic development website, “We had such great feedback with the wine trail that we decided to take the next step and provide a resource that encompassed a variety of activities,” she said. “We are excited to share all the wonderful attributes of our part of the world. Even if you are from the area, you might be surprised what is in your own backyard.” According to Strasburg resident, Karen Kull, the website is a necessary resource to get people out and involved in their communities. “The East Central Illinois Events page is a great way to find local events and information,” explained Kull. “I only have to look at one website to find out what’s going on in the surrounding communities. As a resident of Strasburg, I have found the website to be a great tool to advertise our local
festivals and farmers’ markets.” Since the website went live in May, it has received over 20,000 page views. “I am very pleased about the website’s success,” said Grunloh. “It’s very important for this region to have a central repository for tourism and economic development activities and the website provides that outlet.” Communities, organizations or businesses with ECIDC membership are eligible to submit event submissions and information for free. Non-members of ECIDC may submit up to 3 events for a fee of $25. For communities and event planners interested in becoming a member of ECIDC, contact Grunloh at 217-540-3517 or by email at email@example.com.

Meet Mayor Merv, Lake Land H aving a guy like Merv Gillenwater as your instructor might be a little intimidating at first. After all, Gillenwater has held titles for the Illinois State Police like Special Agent, Commander of Patrol and Investigations Commander, before retiring after nearly 25 years of service. He is also a U.S. Army veteran, served on the Effingham City Council and is currently mayor of the city. With such an impressive resume, Gillenwater undoubtedly brings an abundance of practical experience to Lake Land’s Criminal Justice Program.
FULL circle • Spring 2014
“I’ve testified in federal court, investigated homicide cases and have seen some pretty unthinkable things during my career, but walking into that classroom on the first day of class was the scariest thing I’ve ever had to do,” said Gillenwater, reflecting on his nine years of teaching at the Lake Land College Kluthe Center in Effingham. “I took on the responsibility of molding young minds, which is a hefty duty, and I wanted to ensure I did that as well as any other job I held. It turned out to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.” During his tenure at the Kluthe Center, Gillenwater has taught classes such as the Introduction to Criminal Justice, Criminal Investigation, Corrections, and Criminal Evidence and Procedures. For him, it’s important for his students to gain first-hand knowledge in the criminal justice world. To that end, Gillenwater regularly takes his classes on field trips, schedules guest speakers and gives extra credit to his students who job shadow in a professional criminal justice environment. “It’s one thing to talk about a topic in class, but to gain the practical knowledge needed for this kind of work, students need to see it,” said
College Criminal Justice Instructor Gillenwater. “This offers them a more realistic view of the criminal justice world.” According to Gillenwater, his classes regularly visit the Effingham County Courthouse where they meet the Effingham Circuit Clerk and tour the facilities including the court rooms and clerks’ offices. They also meet the Effingham County State’s Attorney, tour the Effingham County Jail and the Illinois State Police District 12 Headquarters. Beyond providing his students with a well-rounded criminal justice education, Gillenwater encourages his students to do something he has done his entire life – take risks. For him, some of his most memorable risk-taking adventures include
volunteering to be drafted for the Army during the Vietnam War, declining his first job offer as a patrol officer for the Illinois State Police on the Chicago toll roads, and running for mayor, a position he won by only 31 votes. “I consider myself to be a lucky guy, but I remind myself that luck is when preparation meets opportunity,” said Gillenwater. “So, I tell my students that you sometimes have to take a chance. But you must prepare yourself, and then put yourself out there. Take the risk and it will pay off. “ To learn more about the Criminal Justice Program at Lake Land College, visit: www.lakeland.cc.il.us/as/sse and select the “Criminal Justice” link.
Ask your high schooler about the Kluthe Center College Day. This day-long event hosts area high school juniors and introduces them to a variety of aspects about attending college. Mark your calendars for March 21, 2014!
From student to instructor
Merv Gillenwater has an associate’s degree in science from Lake Land College, a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University, and has taken numerous criminology classes through the Sociology Department at Eastern. He began his career at Lake Land College in the early 1970s after returning from 21 months in the U.S. Army, serving as a Military Police Officer. As a student, he was dually enrolled at Lake Land College and Eastern Illinois University. While earning a bachelor’s degree in business, Gillenwater enrolled at Lake Land in order to complete several courses required for his degree. Gillenwater said that Lake Land offered him a more affordable option for many of the classes required for his bachelor’s degree.

“The instructors at Lake Land are very concerned about each individual student’s success. I was able to build strong relationships with many of the instructors, and I think that reputation and student-centered focus is what brought me back as an instructor so many years later.” -Merv Gillenwater
Knock out a transferable general education course with
The Ethics of South Park From Socrates and John Locke to Eric Cartman and Kenny McCormick, ethics instructor Tara Blaser links classical philosophical theory to modern-day entertainment with her class, The Ethics of South Park. According to Blaser, she designed this class nearly 10 years ago in order to help students apply traditional ethical theories to the world around them today. “The class has turned out to be wildly popular,” explained Blaser. “Applying the theories we discuss and then allowing the students to synthesize that material through a show like South Park not only helps them retain the information, but they have a lot of fun with it.” Blaser said that each week of the course, she conducts a traditional lecture one day, reviewing the thoughts and theories of the philosophers, and then during the following class meeting, the students
watch an episode of South Park to discuss how the theories are portrayed in or apply to the episode. “South Park is a somewhat controversial show that often comments on current events or issues in today’s world,” said Blaser. “Because of that, the students are really involved in our class discussions and class participation and attendance are excellent. The nature of the show gets them interested and gives us something worth talking about.” According to psychology major Brandon Bilbija, from Toronto, Canada, he enrolled in the course because he not only likes to watch South Park on his own, but it helps him learn the information better. “I learn better when engaging in something more active and hands-on,” said Bilbija. “I also enjoy watching the show anyway, so this class was a great fit for me.”
The Ethics of South Park fulfills a humanities requirement at Lake Land College and is also transferable to fouryear universities. For more information about The Ethics of South Park, contact Blaser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the spring 2014 semester, The Ethics of South Park will be offered as a hybrid class, where students will meet on campus once a week and the other half of the class will be conducted online.

From autonomous hexacopters to wearable computers, Lake Land College IT students explore human computer interaction What happens when you take a few pieces of used computer hardware, sprinkled with custom designed software applications and a touch of creativity? Well, if you’re visiting the Lake Land College Information Technology (IT) program, the answer is virtually anything. During the summer term, Human Computer Interaction (ITT-064) is offered as an elective class for students studying IT. According to instructor Scott Rhine, the class offers students who have taken other technical IT classes a chance to use the skills they have gained through their coursework for a capstone project of their choice. Students are also encouraged to pursue projects in which they are interested but for which they have not received any training or coursework. The process of research, learning, discovery and accomplishment is the core of this class. “The essence of this class is for the students to create something from start to finish,” said Rhine. “They start with brainstorming and design, then product development and implementation of physical and electronic interfaces. The goal is to extend the reality of computer use and game play using both currently available and custom hardware and software.” To learn more, check out some of the custom-made projects below!
FULL circle • Spring 2014
Project Name: Robo-Man Creator: Nick Wernsing, Neoga, network administration major Overview: Why build a robot when you can be a robot? Well, maybe not be a robot, but with the newly designed Linux microcomputer mobile system, Wernsing can strap his computer to his arm and run the full Linux operating system. The system is capable of wireless streaming, browsing the web, editing photos and uploading content with a USB drive, among other things. Using a Raspberry Pi, wrist brace, USB hub, a 4.3-inch LCD monitor, a custom-made t-shirt and lots of Velcro, Wernsing can take his Linux operating system wherever he goes! “The main thing I learned in this class is that stuff you imagine can become real, and with that knowledge possibilities of what can be done are endless.” -Nick Wernsing, Neoga
Project Name: The RPI 2600 Creator: Jeff Robison, Charleston, network administration major Overview: Using a donated Atari 2600 and Xbox controller, Robison programmed a credit-card-sized, single-board computer known as a Raspberry Pi, which is now capable of running over 500 Atari games. “The most important thing I took from this class is that it is 100 percent handson learning. Looking things up in a book and memorizing notes simply do not exist in this lab. I spent the entire class studying by actually doing the projects and accomplishing things myself.” -Jeff Robison, Charleston
Project Name: Zen Toolworks CNC Machine Creators: Dean Howell, Mattoon, network administration certificate; Eric Spiker, Montrose, network administration major; and Jeff Robison, Charleston, network administration major Overview: The group created a computer numeric control (CNC) system that allows a user to design a drawing which is then milled into a piece of wood, foam, stone or metal using tolerances and consistencies that are much harder for humans to replicate. Using an Arduino board to communicate between all components, the group used software including SketchUp and MeshCAM to create and convert g-code language in order to direct the stepper motors to mill the design. “The best thing about this class is that it is anything but a typical classroom environment. It is a class that is limited only by one’s imagination. If you can dream a project up, you can probably make it in this class.” - Eric Spiker, Montrose
Project name: The Hexacopter Creator: Matt Pruemer, Effingham, network administration major Overview: This multicoper, six-propeller unit flies with a radio controller, but will have the ability to fly autonomous missions, once the system is perfected. Using a variety of equipment like a hexacopter frame, propellers, motors, electronic speed controllers, a power distribution board, magnetometer and GPS module to name a few, the hexicopter’s latest mission was flying over campus taking aerial footage of the grounds. “The best thing about this project was the feeling of success during its first successful flight after weeks of frustration.” -Matt Pruemer, Effingham
Project name: The Lake Land College Weather Station Creator: Tyler Terrell, Charleston, network administration major Overview: The LLC Weather Station provides the current weather conditions for the Lake Land College campus. Using software like EasyWeather and Cumulus, the two programs communicate in order to push the information to the Weather Underground (wunderground.com). Getting up-to-date weather conditions from LLC’s station ID: KILMATT03 is now convenient especially if you are located in a windowless classroom! “The open-lab style of this class allows students to jump around projects and learn a little bit of everything as well as things you probably weren’t initially comfortable with. Some of the things I learned may be random, but are very interesting and are things that I would not have leaned on my own time. It’s like giving a large amount of Legos to a child, only these Legos make noises and occasionally sound an alarm!” - Tyler Terrell, Charleston

Lake Land College’s Adult Ed Center offers ‘two-for-one’ educational opportunity In the U.S., over 26 million adults lack a high school degree and 1.3 million young people drop out of high school each year, leading to an inability to find employment and earn sustaining wages. In fact, the areas that see the highest dropout rates are rural counties with low unemployment and high poverty rates, not unlike the Lake Land College district. To combat these staggering statistics, the Lake Land College Adult Education Center has implemented an Accelerating Opportunities Initiative, aimed at offering adult learners the chance to earn a GED, while at the same time, earn post-secondary credentials. The Accelerating Opportunities Initiative provides an automatic pathway into a program of study at Lake Land College, which can lead to accredited, higher education credentials. This helps incorporate adult learners into the atmosphere of college life, showing them that they can succeed. The program’s goal is to offer adult students something beyond just a GED. Currently, the program offers a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certificate option and a Welding certificate option, both of which include career skills preparation, GED completion, college preparation, and one-on-one help for reaching career and academic goals.
These programs are free to qualifying individuals, and enrollment in the program is now open. For more information, contact 217-235-0361.
n o i t c u r t s n o C y Highwa m a r g o r P g n i n i a Careers Tr Former Highway Construction Careers Training Program student April Dixon roofs a bath house facility at Wolf Creek State Park, outside of Windsor. Dixon landed this job after completing the training program, where the hands-on aspect of the program was held at Wolf Creek.
he Highway Construction Careers Training Program at Lake Land College gave April Dixon an opportunity to start over in life.
“I did things in my past that I’m not proud of, but this program gave someone like me a second chance,” said Dixon. “It opened a door for me and gave me an avenue to get where I want to be in life.”
FULL circle • Spring 2014
Dixon, of Mattoon, enrolled in the Highway Construction Careers Training Program, not only as a way to help turn her life around, but because she has always been interested in working in construction. After being charged with a felony and serving her probationary period, Dixon knew she had to make changes for herself and her family. The Highway Construction Careers Training Program, sponsored by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and administered through the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) and Lake Land College, is aimed at increasing the number of women, minorities and disadvantaged individuals working on IDOT highway construction projects. However, the training is open to anyone who is interested and qualified for the program.
The training consists of an intensive 12-week program to learn the skills necessary for acceptance into the highway construction trades and the
s p i h s e c i t n e r p p a n o i n u o t s r o o d ens
opportunity for a career with high-wage earning potential. According to the program’s coordinator Cindy Shupe, she designs the training sessions so that students have a blend of classroom learning in combination with hands-on training. “In the classroom, we focus on communication skills, job seeking and keeping skills, teamwork, stress management, money management, and applied math skills,” explained Shupe. “During the specialized skill training, students work on a service project, doing hands-on work to gain skills for the construction field.” For each session of the program, Shupe coordinates the service project with local non-for-profit organizations that can benefit from the students’ volunteer hands-on training. Recently, students were assigned to several projects at Wolf Creek State Park, just outside of Windsor. Likewise, this fall Shupe conducted training sessions in Decatur, where students worked with the Decatur Park District and in Neoga, where they worked at Jennings Park.
Dixon. “It was like we had built-in support for each other, which didn’t just include us students, but our teachers, trainers, and of course, Cindy. She is one of the most encouraging and supportive people I’ve ever met. Those aspects really gave me hope.” Since completing the program, Dixon was accepted to the Carpenters Union #44, based out of Champaign. She also maintains employment at Wolf Creek State Park, where she was hired on in June after completing the Highway Construction Careers Training Program in November. For more information about the program, contact Shupe at 217-235-0361 or 1-800-210-5541. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon completion of this program, successful students will be prepared to apply for and pass the entrance exam for apprenticeship in one of the following trades:

The Highway Construction Careers Training Program is mobile! The program spans IDOT’s District 7, which includes the following counties: Clark, Clay, Coles, Crawford, Cumberland, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Lawrence, Macon, Moultrie, Richland, Shelby, Wabash and Wayne.
According to Dixon, the program’s training incorporated a variety of real-world situations. She said she was exposed to patching roads, building structures, running equipment and managing water resources. “Within the first two weeks of the handson training, we were out there working. I got to work on so many different things. It’s just a really well rounded program,” she said. Likewise, Dixon said the structure of the program was very supportive for her, which helped her reach her goals and that she grew very close to her fellow classmates. “We all really bonded as a family,” said

Financial Aid Worried about how to pay for college? Don’t be! Lake Land College is here to help! If you’re serious about attending college but need financial assistance, there are many opportunities to financially support you as you pursue your academic goals. To start this process, ALL students requesting financial aid must complete the 2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible.
How to Figure Your Tuition and Fees • One Credit Hour = $107.80** • One class is generally 3 credit hours –
3 x $107.80 = $323.40
• A full load of classes per semester, approximately five three-hour classes, or 15 hours total
15 x $107.80 = $1,617
• Multiply this by two semesters, which makes up an entire academic year, totaling $3,234.
FULL circle • Spring 2014
2 x $1,617 =
Does this number seem unreachable? Think again! With a total tuition cost of $3,234 the average student, working a part-time job that pays $8.50 an hour can pay for college by working only 4.5 hours a day for 90 days. Or think of it as working half a day for three months. What do you plan to do with your summer break? *Please note this figure includes textbook rental and some individual courses and online courses may have additional fees.* **Tuition rates are subject to change, effective with the summer term.
