WHAT DOES

success in higher education look like to you? Is it receiving the best grade in the class, achieving recognition for your hard work athletically or forming friendships that will last a lifetime? If you were to ask Lake Land College English Instructor Matt Landrus, he would tell you that his formula for success combines innovation with student potential to create opportunities for students to excel in the classroom. Beginning fall semester 2018, Landrus created an independent studies course that opened up two student mentor positions to assist students taking Composition I and II. The two student mentors were Ben Esgar of Charleston and David Pruitt of Mattoon. The independent studies course introduced them to the day-today responsibilities of a community college English Instructor, and the interworking of Lake Land College and the challenges faced by higher education. The initial duties of Esgar and Pruitt, both of whom were previously successful in Composition I and II, were to serve as liaisons between Landrus and the students enrolled in the courses. The impact of the mentors was immediately evident. “There were moments when I would hand back work to the class and you could feel the tension in the air build. However, once Ben and David worked with the students to understand why things were marked the way they were, the tension immediately lifted,” Landrus said. Rewards resulting from this innovative independent studies course included markedly increased student satisfaction with the courses, higher grades and course completion rates and dramatically improved instructor–student relationships. Individual success stories also emerged such as that of a non-traditional student in Composition II. “This student was having a lot of difficulty in class, with good reason. English was his fourth

language! He needed extra help and this opportunity allowed David and me to be much more accessible to the student and his needs,” Esgar said. However, the English students were not the only ones reaping the benefits. Landrus said providing Esgar and Pruitt with this opportunity has boosted their confidence and allowed them to quickly develop a new skill set to succeed as mentors. “They developed themselves in a professional setting, learned more about public speaking and audience awareness than they could have in a public speaking class and contributed to their own academic success,” Landrus said. Pruitt and Landrus brought this innovative course to life after realizing Pruitt’s enthusiasm for helping other students recognize their own potential. “It all started out informally. I had taken the course before and I knew I could help, so I devoted my free time to helping students who were struggling,” Pruitt said. When Esgar joined, he was unsure of the direction he wanted to go in his career. “While at Lake Land, I was studying business without really understanding why, but I had always had an interest in teaching,” Esgar said. Esgar and Pruitt agreed that having the opportunity to mentor was the most valuable experience they have had as college students. “This ultimately shaped my career,” said Esgar. “Working with David and Matt gave me a goal that I can work toward as a future educator.” “I look back fondly on my time spent at Lake Land. This experience was rewarding in many ways and I learned more in the two years spent at Lake Land than I ever imagined I would,” Pruitt said. Landrus added, “Ben and David were the perfect storm in the best possible way. We hope to continue, and we would love to see the college apply this to more than just the English department.”

CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENGINEERING INTERNSHIPS Lake Land College faculty and staff are working together to connect engineering students with local employers. In 2018, Lake Land Physics Instructor Dr. Rakhsha Nasseripour surveyed our engineering students and discovered 93 percent would like to have an internship at an engineering company, yet only 50 percent were aware of such companies in our area. Additionally, 50 percent stated they would like to remain in this area if they could find an engineering job locally. These findings propelled Nasseripour and her team to create an advisory council of area industry leaders to discuss options for connecting local students to their companies. Students now take field trips to area businesses, and this spring the advisory council will meet to discuss a new internship program for engineering students. “We want our students to be aware of the opportunities locally so when they transfer, they can come back to the area after graduation. In turn, companies are pleased to connect with these students and learn there is an upcoming talent pool available,” Nasseripour said. Nasseripour said she is grateful to the college team members Ike Nwosu, division chair math and science/biological sciences instructor, Tina Moore, director of career services and John Mahlmeister, internship & employment coordinator for their support and work on this initiative.

YOUR PATH TO A CAREER

as an office professional is now more accessible due to new online class options. Beginning in the fall of 2019, five of the foundation courses in the program will be offered online. “If you are someone who is organized, has good attention to detail, and enjoys working with computers and customers, you will be successful in this field,” said Lisa Earp, business instructor/ office professionals program coordinator. As an Office Professional program graduate, you will be prepared to work in a variety of office settings managing the daily activities of a professional office. With more than 11 majors, you can also choose to specialize in a specific field, including medical coding. “Many of our students are working women with obligations outside of school. Those obligations can often turn students away from getting the education they want. Having online options will make the path to receiving a degree much more accessible for non-traditional students,” Earp said.

Courses to be offered online for the first time include Advanced Formatting, Processing Information, Specialized Software Applications, Automated Office Procedures and Professional Development. The Office Professional program is available as a two-year associate degree or as a oneyear certificate program with concentrations in various fields. You practice skills in an office technology lab and complete an internship to gain real life work experience. As an Office Professional program student, you can earn Microsoft Office Specialist certification as Lake Land College is a certified testing center for Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification exams. The MOS certification tests your skills in Microsoft Office 2016 programs: Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Outlook. Microsoft Office Specialist certification provides you with an advantage in your educational and workforce pursuits by providing a competitive skill and credential.

LAKE LAND FRIENDS

HONORED AT REGIONAL PHILANTHROPY DAY

Wayne and the late Clara Borgic, Taylorville, received the Outstanding Philanthropist award. 8  LAKE LAND COLLEGE w LAKELANDCOLLEGE.EDU


FIVE FRIENDS OF LAKE LAND COLLEGE

were honored at the recent East Central Illinois Chapter of the Association Fundraising Professionals’ National Philanthropy Day celebration. Honorees include Wayne and the late Clara Borgic, Taylorville, who received the Outstanding Philanthropist award; Steve and Debbie Benefiel, Paris, who received the Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser award; the Fuqua Foundation, Mattoon, nominated for Outstanding Foundation or Organization; Cromwell Radio, based in Mattoon, nominated for Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation; and Jackie Joines, Brocton, who received the Outstanding Fundraising Executive award. Each year the East Central Illinois Chapter of the Association Fundraising Professionals (AFPECI) hosts a local National Philanthropy Day celebration to identify and recognize outstanding philanthropic achievements in six different categories. The Outstanding Philanthropist award went to the Borgics (left), who created a life estate gift of their 355-acre farm to the Lake Land College Foundation in agreement for retaining the land for educational purposes. This impactful gift is the first ever in the history of Lake Land College and the Foundation. “The gift not only provides scholarships and other needs of the college, but will have a direct connection with the students who learn from the KramerBorgic farm,” Julie Melton, National Philanthropy Day chair and Richland Community College Foundation executive director, said.

The Benefiels, who own and operate Pearman Pharmacy, received the Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser award. The Benefiels have volunteered for, and served on, several boards, including Paris REC Center, Little Theatre on the Square in Sulllivan, Paris Center of Fine Arts, Lake Land College Foundation, Horizon Health Hospital and more. “They have strengthened the faith, wellness and culture of their community and supported numerous youth in making their lives better through education,” Melton said.

THE BENEFIELS

Lake Land College Executive Director for College Advancement Jackie Joines received the Lisa Mauney Outstanding Fundraising Executive award. “Jackie Joines is a dynamic fundraiser because she loves people and is known as a connector - people to people, resources and ideas. She is passionate about helping students reach their goals, as shown by her long service to EIU and Lake Land College,” Melton said.

JOINES

The Fuqua Foundation and Cromwell Radio were honored as finalists and are irreplaceable philanthropic organizations for Coles County. The Fuqua Foundation, established through the estate of the late Karen Fuqua, is making a significant difference in the Mattoon community through generous gifts to the Lake Land College Foundation for nursing scholarships and to the Salvation Army and Catholic Charities. Fuqua’s sister Marilyn Fuqua Thompson received the nomination on behalf of the Foundation. Cromwell Radio and its affiliates are extremely involved with St. Jude’s, One Stop Community Christmas and other community efforts. The staff’s work with St. Jude’s has raised more than $768,000 over the years. Also, as the driving force in a community partnership of more than 170 agencies in a seven county area that created One Stop Community Christmas, Cromwell Radio has helped, to date, more than 11,500 children enjoy the holidays.

LAKER ALUMNUS PITCHING IN THE

PHILLIES ORGANIZATION 10  LAKE LAND COLLEGE w LAKELANDCOLLEGE.EDU


HARD WORK, HUMBLENESS AND GRATITUDE

have followed Addison Russ from his days as a Laker pitching on the mound at Lake Land College in Mattoon, Illinois to throwing batting practice to Philadelphia Phillies teammate Bryce Harper in spring training in March 2019. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am definitely blessed to be here. I am thankful for everything I have been given by the Phillies’ organization,” Russ said during a video interview with YouTuber Eli Fishman at Talkin’ Ball Interviews this spring. Russ’ passion for baseball started at the young age of 4 growing up in Amarillo, Texas. Even as a little leaguer Russ was a talented player, but his work ethic is what set him apart from his peers and led him to be drafted by the Phillies in the 19th round in the 2017 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft. After high school, the righthanded pitcher played a year at Frank Phillips College in Borger, Texas. The following summer he played in a summer league for Lake Land College Coach Zach Stuart, forming a relationship that led him to Mattoon. Lake Land College Head Baseball Coach Bill Jackson joined Stuart in being impressed by Russ’ potential and Russ saw an opportunity to grow as a Laker. “When I first saw Russ pitch his mechanics were already good. I could see that

his arm had a lot of potential,” Jackson said. “He was throwing 86-87 miles per hour as a freshman, but you could tell his arm had more left in it.” Russ transferred that fall and quickly earned the starting pitcher position for the Laker Baseball Team during the 2014-2015 season. “From day one, he was the leader of our pitching staff,” Jackson added. Russ said the coaches pushed him to be a better player on and off the diamond over the course of his time at Lake Land College. As a Laker, Russ had a 6-6 record. He pitched 88 2/3 innings, struck out 76 and walked 48 with a 3.15 ERA.

“COACH JACKSON AND COACH STUART PUSHED ME IN WAYS THAT I HAD NEVER BEEN PUSHED BEFORE AND THAT HELPED IN THE LONG RUN WITH MY DRIVE AND DESIRE TO IMPROVE.” -RUSS

“Coach Jackson and Coach Stuart pushed me in ways that I had never been pushed before and that helped in the long run with my drive and desire to improve. I learned how to study while at Lake Land College, because the classes were challenging and the coaches held us to high standards,” Russ said.

“The people at Lake Land College were all great. I still keep in touch with close friends and teammates I made at Lake Land,” Russ said. After graduating from Lake Land College, Russ attended Houston Baptist University and earned a degree in multi/interdisciplinary studies and further developed his pitching talents. He signed with the Phillies in 2017 and then moved around the organization’s minor league teams, playing for the Williamsport Crosscutters, Lakewood BlueClaws and the Clearwater Threshers.

During his developing career in the Phillies’ farm system, he stood out earning the Mid-Season All-Star 2018: Lakewood (SAL) and the MILB.COM Organization All-Star Award. In announcing the award in December 2018, MILB.COM stated “relief pitcher Addison Russ went 5-2 with a 1.67 ERA and added 13 saves as a BlueClaw before a second-half promotion to Clearwater. He added 14 saves for the Threshers and had a 1.69 ERA in the Florida State League.

Russ also credits the training facilities for his improvement as a player. Jackson said before Russ transferred to Lake Land College, he had never seen a weight room. Working on his strength was important when preparing him to compete at the next level.

“Another later-round pick in 2017, Russ provided plenty of support in the late innings for both Clearwater and Lakewood. In his first 29 appearances in the Sally League, the righthander went 14-for-15 in save opportunities while fanning 42 over 32 frames. After a jump to the Threshers, Russ posted nearly identical numbers, saving all 13 of his chances and finishing the season with a 1.68 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 79 strikeouts in 64 1/3 total innings.”

In addition to the training facilities, Russ credits the community at Lake Land for making him feel comfortable away from home.

Reflecting back on his experiences, Russ is grateful for all the opportunities he has been given as a player and a person, especially those at Lake Land College that have positioned him for a promising future in the major leagues. LAKE LAND COLLEGE w 217-234-5253

BECOMING AN EDUCATOR

was always part of Kristina Brown’s plan. From the time she was young, she knew that working with children would be an important part of her life. However, reaching her goal would prove to be a challenging endeavor.

“There, I was introduced to early childhood education. I became very interested and this led me to go back to Lake Land again, changing my major for the final time to Early Childhood Care and Education,” said Brown. Brown was eager to begin the semester, and she was well on her way to reaching her dreams as the semester neared. However, soon after returning to school, Brown faced a heart wrenching obstacle that would have caused many others to give up on their dreams. The first week of her second semester, her son was hospitalized in Carle Hospital’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

“I have always had a special place in my heart for working with children. I love helping them to develop and learn,” said Brown, assistant teacher at Cornerstone Christian Academy in Charleston. Nevertheless, life tends to take many unexpected turns. “I took a detour for a while “We had many obstacles during this time. I had and even changed my major to business to take medical leave from work in management and worked retail for addition to trying to figure out how to a long time,” said Brown. DURING THIS TIME, complete my school work while being SHE WAS FIGHTING there in the hospital. In addition, in This detour couldn’t silence the FOR HER SON AS December 2017, my son had to have dream she had to work with spinal surgery to fix his scoliosis. This children though. Originally from WELL AS HER OWN hurdle continued throughout my time Atwood, Brown, Laker Nation EDUCATION, BUT at Lake Land,” said Brown. Class of 2018, went on to work as a paraprofessional at Arcola schools for four years.

SHE DID NOT FIGHT During this time, she was fighting for ALONE. her son as well as her own education,

“Being a paraprofessional was such a rewarding job. I absolutely loved it. The children and coworkers I had were wonderful and taught me so much,” said Brown. “This led me back to school again taking online classes, but I had a difficult time and took another break.” A short time later, due to the statewide budget crisis, Arcola schools had to cut back on paraprofessionals. Brown was let go with hopes of returning, but this change in plans led her to Cornerstone Christian Academy. With her new career taking shape at Cornerstone Christian Academy, Brown was encouraged by a co-worker to get started with Illinois Gateways to Opportunity, an online training hub for Illinois child care providers.

but she did not fight alone.

“There were a handful of people that helped me complete my degree. My former instructor, Teresa Lang, helped me sift through the classes I had already accumulated to see which classes would transfer. She was a tremendous help with organizing my class schedule,” said Brown. “The second person to help was my instructor, Tanille Ulm. She helped me by letting me do most of my work from the hospital or home. She was very understanding and allowed me to message her with any questions or concerns. This also allowed me to care for my son.”

“They helped by allowing me to be flexible with my practicum schedule in order to work, care for my son and still graduate with my class,” said Brown. “I am forever grateful and blessed to have had them on my journey! They were all there when I needed them the most!” In the end, Brown completed her education and practicum receiving her diploma in May 2018 and graduating cum laude. Brown explained that Lake Land prepared her for her career as an educator in many ways. “I learned a lot about what goes into being a teacher of young students while at Lake Land. For example, I learned how to create lesson plans, projects and portfolios. I also learned how to create meal plans and sleeping arrangements for young students, and thanks to Lake Land’s smart-board lab, I learned how to use a smartboard and other classroom technologies.” Brown said she hopes to one day have her own classroom at Cornerstone Christian Academy or wherever her path may lead. “I also hope to continue to help develop the minds and encourage the imaginations of children. This is a very rewarding career in many ways. To see the children smile, laugh and get excited when they achieve milestones, knowing that I had a part in it, is the greatest reward I could ever ask for in my career. I could not have reached this goal in my life without Lake Land, and for that I am eternally grateful.”

JOBS IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION ARE EXPECTED TO GROW

Brown also recognized the Division Chair of Social Science and Education/Education/ Psychology Instructor Charles Jarrell and former Education Specialist Diane Wright. through 2026 (onetonline.org)

CARDINAL CARAVAN

BRINGS ST. LOUIS TO LOCAL FANS 14  LAKE LAND COLLEGE w LAKELANDCOLLEGE.EDU


LAKE LAND COLLEGE ATHLETICS

hosted current and former St. Louis Cardinals players at the annual Cardinals Caravan event in Mattoon on January 22, 2019. Cardinals’ fans young and old packed the Field House and cheered for each Cardinals player as he walked across the stage and greeted the excited crowd. One of those fans, Bob Wier of Windsor, sat in the bleachers with a slight grin on his face. Wier is a loving father, a veteran in the Navy who fought in the Vietnam War, a cancer survivor and one of the most loyal Cardinals fans you will ever meet. Like many of the fans in the room, Wier’s love for the Cardinals and baseball started at a young age; in fact, at one time his dreams of becoming a Cardinal almost came true. The Cardinals invited Wier to try out for the team after watching him play quarter ball, but, just two days before his scheduled try out date, Wier was drafted by the Navy to fight in the Vietnam War. When he returned home his injuries squashed his hopes of a try out and made it difficult to ride to Busch Stadium. Despite these challenges, Wier remained a loyal Cardinals fan. He never hesitated to share his love for baseball and the Cardinals with his family and friends. With this in mind, Wier’s stepson, Seth Eaton of Mattoon, jumped at the chance to win tickets to the Cardinal Caravan on the Lake Land College Facebook site. He saw it as an opportunity to

shorten the distance between the Cardinals and Wier. On January 18, 2019, Eaton was coming in the house after dropping off his daughters at school and his phone rang. He won the tickets. After hearing the great news, he immediately called Wier and his stepsister Jennifer Sides. They were both overwhelmed with joy. “When he called me I was driving, I pulled over and started to cry. It was such good news to hear. My dad needed this, Seth did good!” said Sides.

grandchildren, Eaton and Sides at a reception hosted by the Lake Land College Foundation.

Eaton looked forward to taking Wier to a Cardinals event since years ago Wier took Eaton to his first Cardinals game. “I hadn’t really ever watched an MLB game but the passion and the way my step-father described it, made me instantly thrilled to give it a shot!” said Eaton.

The Cardinals coming to Mattoon, Illinois gave Wier and Eaton an opportunity to live out their dreams and once again create a cherished memory at a Cardinals event.

With every picture, Wier and his family created moments that will never be forgotten. A few days later, Eaton talked about these moments at the Cardinals Caravan. “That was the absolute best memory to be able to make with the kids and the humbleness everyone showed toward us was absolutely amazing.”

Even though it was years ago, Eaton said that he will never forget the way his stepfather’s face lit up as they walked into Busch Stadium, “As soon as we walked into Busch Stadium he lit up and started telling me all the Cardinals history and pointing out everything to me so I knew what I was watching.“ Eaton recognized a similar look on Wier’s face that Sunday in the Field House. The slight grin turned into a huge smile as shortstop and second baseman, Paul Dejong; outfielder, third baseman and second baseman, Drew Robinson; pitcher, Ryan Helsey; pinch hitter and right fielder, Justin Williams; and retired players Kerry Robinson, and Ryan Franklin walked into the room and greeted Wier and his family. The Cardinals players enjoyed signing autographs and posing for pictures with Wier, his

GETTING A GREAT START

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION NOW ONLINE 20  LAKE LAND COLLEGE w LAKELANDCOLLEGE.EDU


LAKE LAND COLLEGE

has recently revamped New Student Orientation to include both an online student orientation course and an individualized academic advising experience, combining two best practices into one program. Academic Counselor Heather Nohren explained the benefits of implementing orientation in an online format, “Our number one goal at Lake Land College is student success. We recognize that our students lead very busy lives and don’t have a lot of time for full- or half-day orientation programs, but we also know that new students need these support programs to help them successfully transition to college.” For several years, orientation has only been offered as an in person, half or full day program. “While our program has always been successful, the demographic of our students is changing. We are seeing an increase in the number of students who work, have family obligations and take online classes,” Nohren said. The online format also benefits students who are restricted by their location such as military students who are stationed around the country and international students. “Our new orientation program is extremely unique, because we kept the personal connection with our students through academic advising even though the information we presented at our previous half and full day orientations is now online,” Nohren said. New Student Orientation now involves an online mini-course which takes about 45 minutes for a student to complete. The course is interactive consisting of audio, video and text and can be completed anywhere with an internet connection. It has been divided into five modules with quizzes at the end of each module. At the end of the online course, students schedule an Advisement and Registration Day

where they meet individually with an academic counselor and register for their courses. Students have several different dates and times to choose from when scheduling an Advisement and Registration Day. The online orientation course is also stored in students’ Laker Hub throughout their career at Lake Land College. Therefore, if a student is ever in need of a refresher, the important information is always there.

“WE ARE SEEING AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO WORK, HAVE FAMILY OBLIGATIONS AND TAKE ONLINE CLASSES.” Of the students who completed New Student Online Orientation in spring 2019, 100 percent indicated that online orientation was userfriendly and efficient. Students also indicated that they are more comfortable and understand how to register for classes in the future. Counseling Services is noticing additional benefits of the new format, Nohren said. When students complete online orientation, they sometimes have further questions and are reaching out to the orientation staff before they come to campus for their advisement and registration day.

“Through critical thinking, brainstorming and utilizing resources we already had available to us, we were able to develop this program ourselves and I’m really proud of how well our team did. Many other colleges and universities spend thousands of dollars to develop a program like this. We didn’t spend any additional funds to revamp our program,” Nohren said. Lake Land College is paving the way for new student orientations across the state of Illinois. For instance, institutions from around Illinois are taking note on how Lake Land College is making orientation more accessible for the unique needs of community college students. Additionally, the new orientation program will be highlighted at an educational session at the National Orientation Director’s Association Region Five Conference in Des Moines, Iowa this spring. “New Student Orientation helps students transition into higher education. Revamping our program to include an online orientation course that is flexible to students, provides information that supports a successful transition to college yet provides a personal connection to the institution through individualized academic advising, is crucial to the success of our community college students,” added Nohren.

“It’s great to be able to address questions the students may have before they come to campus for advisement and registration. This support really eases their anxiety about starting a college education and they feel more prepared when it is time to register for classes,” Nohren said. Development of the online orientation course involved the collaboration of several departments on campus including Financial Aid, Student Life, Counseling Services, Marketing & Public Relations and Information Systems & Services.
