Trio of Lake Land College alumni land at Littelfuse, credit transfer opportunities for accomplishments


hat happens when you take three Lake Land College students, add a few semesters of engineering courses and then send them on their way to the U of I with a one-to-one transfer agreement? Well, what you get are three very successful engineers who all unexpectedly ended up working for the world’s number one company in circuit protection, Littelfuse.

FULL circle O Fall 2012

One thing about this trio of engineers that isn’t so unexpected is that each of them – Chris Miller, originally of Mattoon, Ray Zumbahlen, originally of Sigel, and Jordan Hammer originally of Beecher City – credit the education they received at Lake Land College and its transferability to four-year universities for their success. “The articulation agreement between Lake Land and the U of I was really the key to my success,” explained Zumbahlen. “That in combination with small class sizes and affordability, not to mention that Lake Land was close to home, made it my number one choice after high school.”

In fact, Zumbahlen was accepted to the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology upon high school graduation, but opted for Lake Land instead. Currently, Lake Land has more than 50 articulation agreements with several senior institutions throughout Illinois and Indiana that offer a seamless transfer where students can complete a bachelor’s degree in just two additional years. Miller, Zumbahlen and Hammer each graduated from Lake Land with an associate degree in engineering science and through the college’s articulation agreement with the University of Illinois, transferred into the College of Engineering where every class except one linear algebra class transferred. “I’m not sure if I would have been able to come straight to the U of I after graduating from Beecher City High School because I simply wasn’t used to the larger classes and campus,” said Hammer. “For me, Lake Land offered that step in between that I needed.” According to Hammer, the quality of instruction he received at Lake Land was on par, and in some cases, better than that of the U of I.

“Taking classes with teachers like Tonia Timlin, Walter McHenry and Greg Capitosti built a strong foundation for me in math and science,” said Hammer. “They were all fantastic instructors and I appreciated the extra effort they put forward to help guide me.” Zumbahlen included that Timlin, division chair for math and science and physics instructor, wanted to ensure students who transferred to four-year universities were able to stay on top academically. He also said that Timlin taught them more than just the subject matter but gave them the tools to navigate the engineering industry and job market. According to Miller, who graduated from Lake Land in 2001, another advantage the college offers students is the possibility of taking two years of college-level classes and coming out debt free. “I was able to pay for college myself between the affordability of Lake Land classes and the scholarship opportunities through the foundation,” said Miller. “That led me to graduate after four semesters of college 100 percent debt free!” Miller said that a final advantage to attending Lake Land College is that even though he’s been away from campus for 11 years, he can still stop by when he’s in the area visiting family and say hi to his former instructors. Miller and Hammer are project development engineers and Zumbahlen is a high power lab engineer at Littelfuse in Champaign. Littelfuse is an American multinational electronics manufacturing company that specializes in developing industry-leading circuit protection products. Three Lake Land College alumni, Chris Miller, back row left, Ray Zumbahlen, back row right and Jordan Hammer, front, seamlessly transferred to the University of Illinois after completing an associate degree in engineering at Lake Land.

Lake Land College offers students opportunities to learn while giving back to the community

Emily Jaekel is pictured here on Chipper. After riding for three years therapeutically, Emily has not only gained muscle strength but confidence, too.



hen Emily Jaekel’s mother Amy watches her ride Chipper, the horse, a smile broadens across her face. Chipper is not a thoroughbred and Emily is not an equestrian. Together they have not won any awards. In fact, Chipper does not even come to a trot when Emily sits on his back. Regardless of this, Amy is proud and it shows.

“While this might not look like much to you or me, Emily has made so many advances since she’s been riding,” said Amy. “At first, she had to sit in front of someone else while she rode and was also strapped onto the saddle. But, since she’s gained so much muscle and core strength, she’s able to ride on her own now.” Emily, who is from Sullivan, Ind., was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth and has been participating in therapeutic horseback riding for the last three years at the Paradise Equestrian Therapy Center in Charleston. Here, Emily receives specialized riding sessions created just for her with the help of a trained horse handler and side-walkers, many of whom are Lake Land College students participating in a Service Learning course offered through the social science and education division. According to Emily Adams, education major from Sullivan, she enrolled in the Service Learning class because she’s seen first-hand how special services like this can help individuals with disabilities. “I used to babysit a boy who was diagnosed with autism and by working with him, he’s now able to laugh and smile, which was a huge step,” said Adams. “Also, I’ve always really liked horses, so this class offered me two things that are close to my heart.” Therapeutic riding has been an accepted therapy for individuals with disabilities since the 1970s. It has been shown to help riders increase their range of motion, balance and strength, increase relaxation, enhance communication skills, and promote independence and confidence.

To learn more about the Paradise Equestrian Therapy Center, call 217-232-0022.

Amy said that for her daughter, who uses an electronic wheelchair to get around, therapeutic riding has been the most beneficial therapy for her for a few reasons. “Now at age 16, Emily is tired of her regular therapies. She gets upset when we have to see the doctor, making the other therapies not enjoyable for her,” said Amy. “This is the only therapy that levels the playing field for her where she gets to leave her chair behind.” Amy said that not only has Emily shown great improvement since she’s started equestrian therapy, but she likes it too. According to her, this is one therapy where she gets to interact with other people her age who experience the same kinds of issues she does. Further, this gives Emily a chance to meet people who aren’t doctors or physical therapists, but are there just to help her succeed, like the Lake Land students. “Every rider can teach you a different lesson,” said Jordan Boerngen of Dieterich, who is studying math education at LLC. “This is a humbling experience, and sometimes if I’m having a rough day and come out here to the ranch, by the end of it, I’ve forgotten about my own problems.” Cathy Bunton, health and physical education instructor who teaches the Service Learning class, said that it’s important for her as a teacher to offer

this course because of the eye-opening experiences her students have. “Once you get a student out here, they get hooked,” said Bunton. “And, I admire those students who give their time, allowing themselves to grow in this capacity. It reminds us all how fortunate we are.” The Service Learning course at Lake Land College is available in three different sections for either one credit hour,

two credit hours or three credit hours. Credits earned through this course count toward graduation and are transferable. Since there is no regular classroom meeting time for this class, students can choose the days and times that work best for their schedules. For more information about the Service Learning course, contact Bunton at or 217-234-5361.

In Loving Memory of James D. Cox

FULL circle O Fall 2012

According to his mother Deanna, James Cox of Greenup never met a stranger. “He brought so much joy and light to those he met throughout his life,” she said. Cox, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth, participated in equestrian therapy for a good portion of his life, which increased head control, core strength and ease of breathing. “I noticed a lot of differences in him when he was riding,” said Deanna. “It wasn’t just the physical aspects, but it was the emotional change, his well-being and confidence, too. It made him feel very special.” Cox graduated from Cumberland High School in 2009 and participated in the Cumberland High School Student Council and 4-H. Cox passed away on March 15, 2012 at the age of 22 from complications surrounding his condition. “James never thought he was different and it was volunteers and students like those he met through equestrian therapy and at his high school that made 9 him so happy in life,” said Deanna.

LLC alumna opens shop and travels the nation with new found career


t age 49, Rhonda Newby came to Lake Land College to start a career after being a stay-at-home mother for 25 years. In 2011, she enrolled in the Esthetics Program at LLC and a year later, she moved to Robinson and bought the Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio where she gives cosmetic consultation, facials and body treatments.

“This program was the best for me because I wasn’t overwhelmed with the time frame,” said Newby. “I needed a program that could train me effectively with quick turn around so I could get into the workforce.” As the owner of the Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, Newby said she’s gained a lot of experience beyond her esthetics certificate. “In the last year, I’ve travelled to Los Angeles for a two-day training and to San Antonio for the annual convention,” she said. Newby also said she’s gained practical experience in marketing and business management. “It’s funny because I don’t consider a lot of what I do to be work,” Newby said. “Yes, it’s my career, but I have so much fun doing it, it doesn’t seem like the daily grind because it’s something I’m so passionate about.”

Rhonda Newby, Robinson, owns a Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio where she specializes in cosmetics and skincare. Newby received her Esthetics Certificate from Lake Land College and found her new career in just one year.

Avoree Gore, Lake Land College alumna who transferred to RoseHulman credits Lake Land for her success in the engineering field and preparing her for the job she’s always wanted as a Hydraulics Engineer for the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Hair dresser turned engineer credits Lake Land for educational and career opportunities


ne of the best things about Avoree Gore’s new job as a Bridge and Hydraulics Engineer for the Illinois Department of Transportation District V in Paris is that her commute to work is now only 15 minutes long.

FULL circle O Fall 2012

Being a wife and a mother of two, Gore’s choice of going back to school after a career in cosmetology for seven years meant commuting long distances to and from school and being away from home more often. “I never even considered that after starting a family and having a two-yearold and a newborn that I could come back to college and ultimately get a four-year degree,” said Gore. Gore initially enrolled at Lake Land right out of high school and earned a Cosmetology Certificate. However, the odd hours and stress of owning her own business led her to return to Lake Land College in 2004 at age 26 with her site set on a two-year technical certificate. “My decision to come back to Lake Land was a life changing moment,” said Gore. “At that time, I wasn’t even

considering a four-year degree. I just wanted a quick turn around to be able to get back into the workforce.” It was with the guidance of instructors in the Math and Science and Technology Divisions that Gore decided even with a young family at home, she would change programs and enroll in the Civil Engineering Technology Program, a transfer program aimed at getting students to a four-year degree, in order to transfer her credits and earn a bachelor’s degree. “I was always good at math and science and graduated as valedictorian from high school,” said Gore. “And funny enough, I had no idea I wanted to be an engineer.” According to Gore, it was instructors like Bambi Jones, mathematics instructor, and Tonia Timlin, physics instructor, who saw her potential and inspired her to pursue a career in engineering. “I never took a physics class before Tonia’s, so I was very nervous,” explained Gore. “But she was so encouraging and understood what it was like to be a woman and a mother while at the same time trying to

crack into the engineering field.” For her first ever physics class, Gore did pretty well – she received an “A” on the final exam. Another advantage for Gore in the engineering program at Lake Land was that the classes were small, so she got to know her peers and work through the material in a group setting, which she said prepared her for the real world working environment. “In this line of work, we do everything as a team, so having that small group working environment while at Lake Land gave me an advantage when I transferred,” said Gore. After she graduated with an associate degree in Engineering Science, Gore applied to the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Ind. and the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, where she was accepted to both. She said she chose to enroll at Rose-Hulman because it was closer to home and had smaller class sizes, two things that reminded her of Lake Land. “At no time during my educational career at Rose-Hulman did I feel unprepared or out of place,” said Gore. “But I can be certain that without the preparation that Lake Land provided, I would have been overwhelmed.” Gore also said that because of the financial aid opportunities at Lake Land, like Foundation Scholarships, the BOOST Scholarship and the Talented Student Award, she graduated from Lake Land debt free. “Having those financial aid opportunities available to me at that time in my life was an integral part to my success,” said Gore. “Another perk was because I made good grades at Lake Land, when I transferred to Rose-Hulman, my tuition cost was lowered.” In 2009, Gore graduated with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Rose-Hulman. After that, she worked as a project engineer for HWC Engineering in Terre Haute, Ind. where she was responsible for studying water resources and supervising construction and design projects. Gore moved on to IDOT in Effingham before she transferred to District V in Paris where she says she has landed the perfect job that uses her background in water management and project design, and of course, is close to home. 15

Meet your student trustee: Ashley Oberling Each year at Lake Land College, a student trustee is selected by the student body to be the voice of the students on the Lake Land College Board of Trustees. Here’s your chance to get to know your student trustee for the 2012-2013 school year, Ashley Oberling.

Q: What is your hometown? A: Plainville, Illinois, which is about three-and-a-half hours to the west of Mattoon. Q: What is your major? A: I am an Agriculture Transfer major, but not sure what area I want to concentrate in yet. Q: What’s one of your main goals for upcoming school year? A: My main goal for the upcoming year is to ensure that students have a voice and can connect with the administration and the board members so that we can get the most out of our education here at Lake Land. Q: Is there a particular student issue that you hope to champion for this school year? Are there any pressing student concerns that you’ve seen? A: I think the administration and the Board of Trustees does a great job listening to our concerns as students and that they value our input. So as of right now, there are no pressing student concerns, but I urge students to contact me if an issue arises so that I can relay the message and a resolution can be found.

Q: In your opinion, if a non-traditional student is thinking about coming back to school, what’s something you would tell him/her to help ease any concerns?

Ashley Oberling is the 2012-2013 student trustee. Contact her on Facebook at www.facebook. com/ashleyoberling for any questions or information!

Q: Why’d you choose to come to LLC all the way from western Illinois? A: My brother came to school here and participated on the livestock judging team. At that time, I was dead set on going to Mizzou [the University of Missouri], but I came to visit Lake Land to see my brother. I sat in on some agriculture courses and fell in love. Since I graduated with a class of 31, I realized that Lake Land would offer me the transition I needed to go from high school onto Mizzou. Q: So far, what’s been your favorite class or who’s been your favorite instructor? A: My favorite class so far has been my animal science class with Ryan Orrick. It was the very first class at Lake Land and I met a lot of my current friends there. Q: What’s your favorite place on campus and why? A: Definitely the West Building. It’s nice and quiet and is a great setting to get your homework and studies done. Q: What’s something everyone should know about Lake Land? A: Coming in, just know there isn’t anything to be scared of. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and get to know people. The number one objective for instructors here is to help their students succeed.

Q: Not being from the area originally, what’s something you learned about the area – a good hang out, good restaurant, etc? A: If you’re staying close to campus, the sand volleyball court by the apartments is a lot of fun. If you venture off campus, Cody’s is a great place to eat! Q: What are your plans after you graduate with your associate degree? A: I plan to transfer to Mizzou and continue studying agriculture. Q: If a student would like to connect with you, how should they do that? A: The best way for students to reach me is through my Facebook account. You can find me at ashleyoberling.


FULL circle O Fall 2012

Q: In your opinion, what is the best way for a student to succeed at Lake Land College? A: The best way for students to succeed at Lake Land is to become involved. The more people you know, the better the college experience is. That way, not only can you find a buddy for lunch, but you will meet people and feel more comfortable to form study groups and get involved in clubs and organizations. Everyone should stop by the Student Life Office [located in the Luther Student Center] to see what’s going on because there is something for everyone.

A: I would tell that student to get to know his/her instructor – go up to them on the first day and introduce yourself. Everyone on this campus is here to lend a helping hand and by diving in, those non-traditional students will get re-acclimated to the educational environment a lot quicker. Or, getting to know some traditional aged students can help, too. Younger students have generally come straight from high school, so they’re full of tips and tactics for success in the classroom.

Lake Land College maintains only those “Educational Records”, within the definition of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which are essential to the processes required to develop and maintain an accurate academic record for each student and to support the accounting needs and requirements for each student as they are imposed by law, state and federal regulations, and College operations.

FERPA affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. These rights are described in the online Lake Land College Student Handbook. For more information, please visit


FULL circle O Fall 2012

The law permits the College to make public certain “directory information” about students. It is the intention of the College to do so within the scope of regular College policies and as may be appropriate to the normal course of College business and operations. The following information is regarded to be “directory” information and some or all of it may be made public: student name, address and telephone number, email address, enrollment status, student classification, major field, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, age and/or date of birth, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, most recent previous school attended and photographs. Any student objecting to his or her directory information being made public must file notice in writing of such objections with the Admissions and Records Office by the first meeting of classes for the semester.
