It’s hard to believe that 2013 is right around the corner. With the coming year will come many changes for Lake Land College as this summer I will retire after 21 years of service. Over these years, the college has grown and changed, enhancing the services we offer for our students and the surrounding communities. From alternative energy initiatives, to state-of-the-art educational facilities and being named the safest campus in Illinois, Lake Land College has done some tremendous things and will continue to do so even after my retirement. The faculty and staff are some of the most dedicated professionals with whom I have had the opportunity to work. Their dedication and commitment is seen throughout the pages of the Full Circle, which highlights some of the students and programs at the college in addition to providing resources for new and returning students.

As the college continues to grow, so do the opportunities for students. For example, on page 2, meet a few of the Lakers who worked as G.I.S. interns and gained practical hands-on experience in their field while earning college credit! Or, meet the veteran on page 9 who found the support he needed to enroll in college after returning from two tours of duty in Iraq. On page 12, you can read about our Civil Engineering Technology Program, a profession that has a job growth outlook that is higher than the national average where employees earn, on average, $46,200 annually. These are just some of the faces of Lake Land College. I encourage you to browse the Full Circle to see how Lake Land College can help you reach your goals, whether that’s pursuing a degree, taking a class or participating in a community activity because at Lake Land College, there is a little something for everyone.

One major goal of community colleges is to provide pertinent classroom information in addition to practical real-world experience so that students can enter the workforce upon graduation or transfer to a four-year school. This holds true at Lake Land College, where students studying Geographic Information Systems or GIS have the opportunity to participate in internships where they use the information they’ve gained in the classroom to put their knowledge to work in the field. In 2008, the GIS program at LLC became a sub-recipient of a National Science Foundation GeoTech Grant and began work on a National Geospatial Technology Center Project. The grant, which funds these internship opportunities, aims to collect information on how rural employers are using geospatial technologies to better serve customers, clients and citizens. The project is being completed in partnership with Texas Engineering Experiment Station in College Station, Texas and Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas. Several Lake Land College students have been placed in various paid internships throughout east central Illinois and the projects they conduct not only give them hands-on experience, but they are used for economic development, regional planning and municipal management.

Josh Perkins, Effingham • Program of study: Associate in Science – Earth Science • Internship employer: Eastern Illinois University – Business Solutions Center • Project Purpose: Map locations of more than 8,000 businesses within an eightcounty region; create a variety of maps such as sales volume, median family income and city boundaries so that businesses can gather economic information on the area •

Software used:, a database of basemaps, images, demographic and consumer data; ArcGIS, a system that enables mapmakers to design and analyze maps; VMWare, a virtual desktop infrastructure at Lake Land College that allows Perkins to log on to his personal student account from any computer to access resources and materials he uses as a student

Plans after graduation: Transfer to Southern Illinois University – Carbondale to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Geography and Environmental Resources

Shaun Vester, Charleston • Program of study: GIS Certificate

Growing up in an agricultural family, Josh Perkins of Effingham understood the importance of good weather as it related to crop production and yield. Because of this, Perkins became more interested in weather and climate, especially understanding its practical applications like the effects of flooding or drought. With his site set on a degree in meteorology, Perkins enrolled in the Introduction of Geographic Information Systems with Mike Rudibaugh, geography and earth science instructor, where his eyes were opened to the endless possibilities of GIS. “With just one class, my entire career path changed, and for the better,” said Perkins. “While meteorology was my first passion and is still a huge interest of mine, combining weather and climate with GIS and mapping skills will greatly enhance my marketability and job prospects.” According to Perkins, the Lake Land GIS program along with the internship opportunity has given him an advantage among other juniors in his program of study at SUIC. “In just one year’s time, I’ve determined my career path, gained pertinent and paid job experience, and expert references in the field,” he said. “This has absolutely enhanced my resume.”


• Internship employer: Douglas-Moultrie Visitor’s Bureau • Project Purpose: Create an interactive map of businesses and attractions in rural Douglas and Moultrie counties in order to make travel to Amish country more navigable and accessible for tourists and visitors • Software used:, a free mobile software that Vester chose specifically for this project which allows him to collect data and photos, then plot maps

Covering more than 400 square miles in one month, Shaun Vester sought out to map every single Amish owned business in rural Douglas and Moultrie counties. From retail, wholesale and hand crafted goods, Vester visited and collected the longitude and latitude coordinates of each business, transferred the data to a mapping software and created an interactive map. “For this project, I’m focusing on those businesses outside of the city limits to boost tourism and economic development in the region,” said Vester. “I’ve met a lot

of talented Amish craftsmen who are struggling to keep their businesses and livelihood up, so hopefully this map will help them by giving tourists better information on where to travel.” According to Richard Otto, owner of the Country Shoe Shop in Arthur, he has a lot of first-time customers who end up four or five miles away because the maps they use to find his store are inaccurate. “It’s not great when a potential customer calls, sitting in the middle of the cornfields and can’t find where we are,” said Otto.

Vester said his project will alleviate issues like this because while the geocoding technology used in Google and Bing maps does not handle rural route areas well, he uses the exact longitude and latitude coordinates which will put travelers within a few meters of the business.

“Working in GIS is great for me because I get to be outside on certain days, but then other days I get to tap into my creativity when making the maps,” she said.

Melinda Swinford, Ashmore • Program of study: Associate in Science – Earth Science • Internship employer: Coles County Regional Planning and Development • Project Purpose: Create a variety of maps for municipal governments throughout east central Illinois including utilities, 911 addressing and infrastructure • Software used: Leica Geosystem GPS unit which collects geographic location within an inch of accuracy; ArcGIS, a system that enables mapmakers to design and analyze maps • Plans after graduation: Transfer to Eastern Illinois University to earn a bachelor’s degree in geography with a concentration in spatial analysis.

For Melinda Swinford of Ashmore, the 100 degree heat of a July afternoon doesn’t scare her off. According to her, conducting fieldwork and being outside is one of the perks of working in the GIS field.


For all GIS internships at Lake Land College, students earn while they learn. After completing these paid internships, students receive 3 hours of college credit.

How GPS units work GPS units collect longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates by contacting a constellation system of 24 earth-orbiting satellites. Orbits of the satellites were created so that four satellites are always visible because four satellites are necessary for a GPS receiver to determine its location.

According to Swinford, her internship has allowed her to enhance her cartography skills as she gets to practice creating different legends, scale bars and map balance, which is essential for producing easy-to-read, user-friendly maps. “This internship is perhaps the most valuable experience of my college education thus far,” she said. “I have gained a great sense of knowledge in what GIS technology is capable of, including some spatial technique. Whether I’m out in the field surveying or using ArcGIS mapping software, it amazes me because whenever there is an issue, interest, quantity or value that needs to be shown in detail, creating a map is an excellent way to do just that.” Swinford first became interested in geospatial technology when she took World Geography and Advanced GIS with Brooke Ferguson, adjunct geography instructor. “Before Brooke’s classes, I didn’t know too much about GIS, but those classes really piqued my interest!”

a smaller harvest, we initially had a goal of sharing with the local food bank and our other neighbors.”

Last summer, Lake Land College piloted a sustainable agriculture community garden, adding another initiative to the list of existing sustainability efforts at the college. To do this, the college looked to students, employees and area residents, alike, inviting everyone to participate in this unique opportunity. For its first year, the garden sent home fresh produce with nearly 30 gardeners.

Anderson said that along with the location of the food plots, the college provided fertile soil and an unlimited water supply. “Between our neighbors and ourselves, we tended our plots regularly and were out watering at least once if not twice a day,” said Anderson. “The college was very helpful and gracious to supply the soil and water because without the water supply, it would have been a disastrous harvest.”

They planted tomatoes, green beans, popcorn, peppers, onions and squash.

“We participated in the garden for a variety of reasons,” explained Anderson. “Primarily, we wanted to help bring about a sustainable food source for the community. While the drought left us with


that they boiled and froze for use all winter long. Anderson said that she likes to preserve her harvest in individualized servings so she can do anything from adding a small side dish to a meal or make an entire pot of vegetable soup. Anderson said that she also met other gardeners with whom she shared ideas and methods for gardening, especially tips for keeping plants alive during the dry summer.

“One of the gardeners I met out at the plots gave me a few tips on using recycled materials like newspaper and straw to create a mulch that would help keep moisture in the ground for the plants,” explained Anderson. “Tending a garden gives you a new appreciation for cultivation and harvest, and for farmers who depend on those crops to earn a living.” For Debbie Hines, human resources assistant at the college, tending her plots at the community garden was the first opportunity she ever had to grow fresh produce. “I’d never had a garden before and thought it would be fun,” said Hines. “It was really exciting to pick that first round of vegetables.”

For Hines and her husband Jay, who helped her maintain two plots, they used a lot of their produce to make fresh summer salsa. Like the Andersons, the Hines said they spent plenty of time watering the garden over the summer because of the excessive heat, but that won’t deter them from maintaining plots again this year. “We had corn, green onions, green peppers, pepperoncinis, tomatoes and zucchini and we’re looking to expand our plots to include a few more items next year – maybe radishes and eggplants,” Hines said. To tend a plot at the Community Garden, there is no charge and participants are welcome to plant whatever fruits and vegetables they prefer. To reserve your plot for the 2013 growing season, contact Jeff Oder, director of sustainability at (217)234-5368.

Combat veteran finds strength, support & academic opportunity at Lake Land College


n Tim Davenport’s first day at Lake Land College, he arrived to his classroom 20 minutes early. He wanted to secure a seat that would ensure his comfort in the new environment because for him, the anxiety and apprehension sometimes associated with the first day of class was magnified.

Davenport, of Sullivan, is a Marine Corp combat veteran who did two tours of service in Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2004 to 2006 as a military police canine handler. During his time there, Davenport found himself in some of the most violent, war-torn parts of the Anbar Province, near Ramadi and a location known as the Sunni Death Triangle.

[continued on 10-11]

“It took me three years to muster the courage to go to school after I came home,” said Davenport. “Before that, I just simply wasn’t in the right mindset.”

[continued from page 8] As a specialized soldier, Davenport was stationed with various branches of the armed forces during his stints in Iraq and was responsible for tracking down improvised explosive devices or IEDs both throughout the desert and in cities. “I come from a family of Marine Corp veterans,” said Davenport. “My mother and father both served, so going to the service right out of high school was something I really wanted and I got what I wanted from my military service – a combat action ribbon and earning my rank as sergeant – even though I’ve made sacrifices along the way.” Davenport was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and said that he had a very difficult time adjusting back to civilian life. Unable to leave home, losing his appetite and feeling high levels of anxiety, Davenport’s father encouraged him to seek help at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Danville. After meeting with psychologists and psychiatrists for nearly three years, Davenport realized he was ready to take the next steps in his life. “I was working as a security guard and that job was just a means to an end – something to pay the bills,” he explained. “So I decided I needed to go back to school in order to get the education I needed to start a career, not just work a job.”

the road, but also one that would offer him a wide array of classes, introducing him to a variety of subject matter. He enrolled in the business administration program, which concentrates on accounting, finance, management, marketing and computer information systems. It wasn’t too long after his first few classes at Lake Land that instructors noticed Davenport was an excellent student who stood out in the classroom.

“Tim works very hard to make sure he learns all details covered in a course and this is reflected in his homework, course projects and 3.9 grade point average,” said Kathy Black, business division chair “I used my Chapter 30 G.I. Bill and the Illinois Veterans Grant to and instructor. “He is very motivated to succeed and cover my education at Lake Land and I can’t say enough about puts 110 percent behind his how helpful the financial aid services for veterans are at the course projects. Tim is also a college. Any problem I had, they solved it, and they tailor what’s mature student who accepts responsibility for his own best for each person depending on the situation.” learning—every teacher’s –Sgt. Tim Davenport dream.”

Davenport said that because he was still mending from his experiences in Iraq during that time, he wanted to ease into school and chose to enroll at Lake Land because he wasn’t sure if he was ready for a four-year commitment at a university.

During his time at Lake Land, Davenport also worked as a tutor in the Tutoring Center and helped students with their school work including college algebra, financial accounting, business statistics and finite math.

“I had a friend, who after coming back from the service, went straight into a four-year situation, and he really struggled with it,” said Davenport. “Because I was working on getting better, I needed a more manageable, personal educational environment and that is why I chose Lake Land.”

“I really enjoyed tutoring because it allowed me to help and teach others,” said Davenport. “Tutoring kind of gave me something of my own, my own way to help other people.”

Davenport said for him, the smaller classes and personal relationships he formed with instructors at Lake Land offered the adjustment period he needed to succeed academically and socially. “Honestly, I had no idea what I wanted to study or where I saw myself because for the first time in a long time, I actually had choices to make about my future,” he said. Davenport decided to pursue a degree that could transfer to a four-year university if that was something he wanted to do down


For his exceptional contributions to the business division at Lake Land College, Davenport was awarded with the Outstanding Student Award for the business division. “At the end of the day, I’m still fighting a lot of demons and when I look back, I really don’t know how I made it this far,” said Davenport. “But one thing I do know is that for me, my education has been key to making sense of the world. I’ve gained perspective and take things in differently than before, and that’s the most important thing I’ve gained from going to college.”

Sgt. Tim Davenport is pictured with his canine Darra H187 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After returning home from service, Davenport enrolled at Lake Land after suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder because he sought an educational environment that offered a manageable, personal feeling.

Miles of Illinois roadways


rom building bridges to testing and repairing roadways, one thing’s for sure – with the erratic Illinois weather, there is a high demand for civil engineering technicians throughout the region. According to Galen Altman, civil engineering technology instructor and coordinator at Lake Land College, the state of Illinois has the challenge of keeping its roadways in good, safe condition because of the climate differences throughout the state and the annual thaw and freeze cycle. “Illinois and other states in the region are places where civil engineer technicians can always find steady employment,” said Altman. “The changing of the seasons cause the road materials to expand and contract which almost always requires maintenance and repair.” The Civil Engineering Technology Program at Lake Land College is a comprehensive associate degree program that prepares students with the skills necessary for employment as a civil engineering

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary of a civil engineering technician is $46,290!

The civil engineering industry regularly repurposes materials to reduce consumption and waste product. That’s right! Often times, our roads, bridges and even sidewalks are made out of repurposed concrete, tires and even roofing shingles. “It’s common practice for old concrete to be crushed and used as base aggregate for new construction or for old asphalt pavement to be milled and recycled to use again,” said Galen Altman, civil engineering technology instructor and coordinator. According to Altman, the industry also uses ground-up tires in asphalt mix and is currently experimenting with roofing shingles, too. Slag, a byproduct of steel production is used in concrete for high rises and at intersections because it can be very lightweight. Slag is used as a skid resistant surface for asphalt. Another green aspect of the civil engineering technology industry is that it also uses a special sealant on concrete to help the material not absorb water, thereby reducing the consumption of fresh water.

“The instructors were great and always went the extra mile to make sure every student in the class finished the program in order to be an expert in the field,” said Beuning. “I didn’t finish high school and earned a GED through the military, so when I came back to school I was nervous, especially with math, a subject that I was terrible at in high school. But when I came to Lake Land, math was actually a subject in which I excelled.”

resume and professional networks. For Bryan Harrington of Louisville, his cooperative work study experience is with Howell Paving, Inc., a highway contracting company that specializes in asphalt and concrete paving, bridge rehabilitation, and site preparation throughout central and southern Illinois. “So far, I’ve done interstate patch work on I-57, density testing on Route 33 near Effingham, and oil readings which involves extractions and burns,” said Harrington. “No one day is ever the same as the next, which is something I like about this kind of work.” With the cooperative work study option, students take their first year of classes on campus then do 15 months with their company and return to Lake Land for their final two semesters of class. Harrington said that everything he learned in his first year of classes translated directly to what he does for Howell Paving, Inc. “The activities we did in class are exactly what I do in the field, so when I came to work for Howell, I felt ready to jump right in,” said Harrington. “Something else I came to realize while in the field is that attending Lake Land College is a

standard for this industry around here. All of my coworkers and bosses are graduates of the Lake Land program.” Likewise for Doug Beuning, a 1996 graduate of the program and now adjunct instructor at the college, he said Lake Land gave him all the tools he needed to enter the civil engineering technology profession

Beuning of Beecher City, has been the Quality Control Manager for Mid-Illinois Concrete since 1998 and said that while he is grounded in central Illinois, this line of work has the capability of taking highly skilled civil engineering technicians all over the world. “Concrete is the number one utilized material in the world,” said Beuning. “I can go anywhere in the world and use the skills I gained at Lake Land to find steady work.” For more information on the Civil Engineering Technology programs at Lake Land College, contact Altman at 217-234-5342 or galtman@

Intersecting Curriculums and Campus Contributions Students enrolled in the Civil Engineering Technology program at Lake Land have the opportunity to contribute to the campus infrastructure while at the same time learn about another growing technology related to their field – Geographic Information Systems, or GIS. In Galen Altman’s Data Collection and GIS Mapping class, students worked with Lake Land College’s Physical Plant to map out utility coordinates across campus. “I’ve been working with Galen and his students to have them collect points of the college infrastructure which is a really good fit because I’m getting the data I need to make an accurate utility map for the college and the students fulfill their fieldwork requirements for the course,” said Brooke Ferguson, adjunct instructor and mapping technician. Ferguson said that the points which the students have collected will be used for reference in a campus-wide utility map and include light poles, water meters and manhole covers.

3 easy steps to get started at Lake Land College

Online: Complete the FAFSA at Lake Land College’s school code is 007644 for assistance


FULL circle • Spring 2013

Get Started

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 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible.

Resources for How to Figure Your Tuition • One Credit Hour = $103.80 • One class is generally 3 credit hours –

3 x $103.80 = $311.40 • A full load of classes per semester, approximately five three-hour classes, or 15 hours total

15 x $103.80 = $1,557 Options for financial assistance: No payback required • Federal or state financial aid grants • Lake Land College Foundation Scholarships • Third-party scholarships Payback required • Student Loans More details on these options are available at Need some one-on-one guidance, contact the Lake Land College Financial Aid Office at 217-234-5231 or email them at

• Multiply this by two semesters, which makes up an entire academic year, totaling $3,114.

2 x $1,557 = $3,114 Does this number seem unreachable? Think again! With a total tuition cost of $3,024 the average student, working a part-time job that pays $8.50 an hour can pay for college by working only 4 hours a day for 92 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.*

“I didn’t have a lot of outside help to get the tools I needed for class in order to be a successful automotive tech student. But the Perkins Program gave me the financial assistance to purchase my uniform and loan of a meter and tools. Without that help, I wouldn’t be able to complete the program.”

How to study for the LLC Placement Test All degree-seeking students and non-degree students planning to enroll in an English or math course are required to complete placement testing. You may submit ACT scores to be used instead of taking the placement test. Course enrollment will be determined by scores on the Lake Land College test or the ACT, whichever is higher. If your ACT scores place you below college level, taking the college placement test offers an opportunity to improve placement. Results of these tests will determine enrollment in courses that are best for you. A study guide and sample questions can be found at: http://www. Cut-off scores for course placement can be found at: interpreting_testscores

Students with Disabilities Students who have a disability may benefit from a variety of support services such as tutoring, recorded materials/ textbooks, assistive technology and testing accommodations. Students should identify their needs at least six weeks before the term they wish to attend to ensure that the necessary support services can be provided. If the college does not receive advance notice, it may not be possible to provide support services for the first term. However, depending on the need(s) and availability of resources, some support services may be arranged after a student is enrolled. Contact the Office of Student Accommodations at (217) 234-5259.
