Effingham County philanthropist, visionary receives Lake Land College
Alumnus Achievement Award A
s a boy growing up on a farm in rural Teutopolis, Frank Brummer’s favorite days were when something broke down. That meant he got to tinker with the machinery in order to repair it, which was, and still is, his favorite kind of work. Brummer, who was selected as the 2013 Alumnus Achievement Award recipient by Lake Land College, grew up aspiring one day to take over the family farm. But much to his chagrin, his father urged him to find work in town.
Frank Brummer, Teutopolis, was selected as the recipient of the 2013 Alumnus Achievement Award by Lake Land College.
“I didn’t do well in high school, but when I turned to Lake Land for the tools to be successful, they held me accountable and inspired me to excel in my education and reach my dreams” explained Brummer. Graduating from Lake Land College in 1977, Brummer earned a certificate

in welding. He then opened a repair business in 1979, which later evolved into Farmweld, Inc. an equipment manufacturer for the pork industry.
“When I was in college, I wanted to work in the corporate world,” said Brummer. “I thought I would take my two passions – agriculture and welding – and work for a big company.” Yet, through a mentorship Brummer built with then welding instructor Joe Evans, he decided to stay local and build his own company. “I had always aspired to open my own business and Joe really urged me to do just that,” said Brummer. “I really feel like I owe my success to Lake Land College and its instructors because through them, my skill set and confidence were boosted, and that’s what inspired me to pursue my dreams.” In the decades that followed, Farmweld grew and Brummer and his business became known nationwide for his high quality products, and for using the latest technology in the manufacturing process. He and his team successfully built the Farmweld brand, which now serves customers all over the world. When the late 1990s brought the U.S. swine industry serious economic challenges,
Farmweld remained strong due to its commitment to quality products and the company’s ability to handle a variety of facility projects. In 2006, Brummer sold his business in order to more fully focus on community service. As a community leader, Brummer wanted to ensure that even though he sold Farmweld, the company would remain in Teutopolis. Today, Farmweld continues to regularly employ between 30 and 50 people where Brummer serves as a consultant to the company. Beyond his impact through Farmweld, Brummer has made a commitment to serve his community and the surrounding county to work toward improving the quality of life in the Effingham area and creating a healthier and safe community, especially for children. Brummer serves as the president of Trails Recreation Effingham County (TREC), an organization aimed at establishing trails throughout Effingham County to promote healthful living. He is also the president of the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB), a statewide advocacy organization dedicated to improving bicycling conditions throughout the state.

He regularly donates to the Lake Land College Foundation, providing scholarships for students at the college. Brummer and his wife Kathy, along with their four children – Nicholas, 31; Bobby, 28; Anne Marie, 26; and Michael, 21 – have become world-wide travelers and enjoy regularly hosting foreign exchange students. “I’ve received so much and I feel called to pay it forward the same as Lake Land College did for me,” said Brummer.
“We want to provide bike trails and safe routes for children to ride their bikes to school. My long term dream is that schools will again have bike racks filled with bikes, like they were when I was a
As board president of Trails Recreation Effingham County (TREC), Brummer has led a dedicated group of board members and community supporters to develop a route of 30 miles of paved trails throughout the county. The trails offer free access for walkers, bikers and hikers to enjoy the beautiful scenery Effingham County has to offer.

Spitz is one of two 7th grade reading teachers at MMS and she also coaches the 7th grade girls basketball team. For her rookie year as coach, the team finished with a final record of 18-4.
“I really couldn’t believe how perfectly everything fell into place and Lake Land is what started it all for me,” said Spitz. “Two of my best years were spent at Lake Land, which led me to walk right into this job.”
“I really couldn’t believe how perfectly everything fell into place and Lake Land is what started it all for me.”
Spitz said that the educational program at Lake Land and its instructors provided her a very good experience and the knowledge and skills to then transfer to Eastern Illinois University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education.
Former Lake Land College basketball player and elementary education major alumna, Jenna Spitz, landed a job as a reading teacher at Mattoon Middle School right out of her senior year of college. Spitz credits Lake Land for the strong foundation it provided her in order to transfer to Eastern Illinois University and earn a bachelor’s degree.
“I remember my very first education class at Lake Land,” said Spitz. “It was with Kim Davis and she was an awesome teacher. She let us know what to expect and was a very caring and involved instructor. She would often describe her own personal experiences as a teacher and I always felt like I could turn to her if I was stressed or unsure about something.”
“I didn’t look at any other schools,” said Spitz. “Lake Land was the right school for me because my family could come see me play ball and they

Lake Land College faculty members lead the way in their fields with research projects Two Lake Land College faculty members are stepping outside of the classroom and conducting two very distinct and interesting research projects in order to add to the body of academic knowledge surrounding their fields of study. To learn more about the research Stephanie Medley-Rath, sociology instructor, and Joe Tillman, renewable energy instructor/coordinator are doing, read the research synopses below.
Dr. Stephanie Medley-Rath is conducting a sociological study called “Reducing the Financial Burden of College – Are Open Educational Resources a Viable Option?” For this project, she is conducting a quasi-experiment on four of her introductory-level sociology classes to determine the value of Open Educational Resources (OERs), which are free, online books and materials. “OERs are gaining a lot of popularity right now in the academic environment,” said Medley-Rath. “I’m interested to see if they do in fact increase access to education for those students who might not be able to afford traditional textbooks.” Medley-Rath will evaluate how 120 students use traditional textbooks versus OERs in both online and face-to-face classes. “Conducting research is a part of my identity as a sociologist and I think using research to inform my teaching makes me a better teacher,” she said. As part of the research, students in her classes will use tablet devises in order to access OERs. This research is funded in part by two grants Medley-Rath received – one from the American Sociological Association’s Carla B. Howery Teaching Enhancement Fund and another from the Illinois Community College Faculty Association.
As part of a research project centering on sustainability and ecology, Joe Tillman is leading a team of student researchers to build an experimental hydroponic garden on the Lake Land College pond. “The widespread use of agricultural chemicals in rainwater runoff contributes to algae growth in many Midwestern lakes and ponds during the summer months,” explained Tillman. “This algae growth greatly reduces the water oxygen levels and can lead to large fish kills and other ecological damage.” The purpose of this research project is to develop a floating garden that will draw nutrients from the pond water to grow useful and/ or edible plants like broccoli or cauliflower. These hydroponic plants will utilize the nutrients from agricultural runoff for their growth, thus competing with the algae and minimizing its growth while improving water quality in the pond. It is believed that this method of aquaculture might be a natural and beneficial solution to algae growth. Renewable energy student, Josh Amacher of Charleston and biological sciences student Allyson Callaway, also of Charleston will assist Tillman with the project. “I’m very excited Josh approached me about this project,” said Tillman. “We have the resources and skills to add something to the body of scientific knowledge and we’re going to do just that.” Tillman also received funding from the Illinois Community College Faculty Association to help conduct this research project.

Meet the Seventh President of Lake Land College:
Dr. Josh Bullock
Q: When applying for the position of president, what attracted you to Lake Land College? A: There were several factors that attracted me to the presidency at Lake Land College. First, I was extremely impressed that Lake Land College was recognized by the Aspen Institute as one of the top community colleges in the nation. That is quite an honor and clearly demonstrates the college’s commitment to excellence. With that said, Illinois itself has a reputation for a strong community college system, and I was energized by the possibility of working in a state that values the benefit of a vibrant community college system. Second, the presidential profile spoke volumes of the innovative and collaborative culture at Lake Land. I have felt such a positive energy among the trustees, the staff and the community surrounding Lake Land’s entrepreneurial spirit and “student first” philosophy. Finally, my passion for environmental sustainability is clearly aligned with Lake Land’s focus in programming and operations. Lake Land’s holistic approach to energy generation and reduction is second to none, not only within Illinois but in the nation.

Q: Could you describe your leadership style?
The Lake Land College Board of Trustees unanimously named Jonathan “Josh” Bullock as the seventh president of Lake Land College following a national search. Coming from Moraine Park Technical College in Fond du Lac, Wis. as the vice president for strategic advancement, Bullock took office on July 1. Take some time to get to know your new Lake Land College president! 8
A: I am a firm believer in the power of people, and am perpetually amazed at what can be accomplished with a spirit of collaboration and human ingenuity. My leadership philosophy is based on the four pillars of transformational leadership. First, I feel it is extremely important to build individual and meaningful relationships with your peers, and genuinely appreciate the important role each person plays in the organization. Second, I believe in developing staff and creating a safe environment for them to learn, take calculated risks and be innovative. Most people want to be challenged in a positive way. Third, I believe in setting and pursing a clear and concise vision for the college, and aligning metrics with the goals to provide a means of measuring progress. People perform at their best when they have a sense of direction, meaning and challenge in their work. It is amazing what people can accomplish when they are inspired to achieve an attainable goal. Finally, I am very keen on the importance of integrity and leading by example. Leaders earn the trust and respect of their followers through their actions, not through their title.
Q: What are you looking forward to as you assume the role of president at Lake Land? A: I am truly looking forward to developing relationships with Lake Land’s passionate staff, dedicated students and supportive community leaders, and working together to continue the nearly 50 year tradition Lake Land has of helping students achieve academic and career success. I am excited by the opportunity to continue fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, with a focus on stewardship of the public’s financial investment in the college. But, most importantly student success will remain the primary focus for all we do at Lake Land College.
Q: As president, you’ll be working very closely with other administrators and faculty members, but how do you plan to get to know the student body? How might they be able to reach out to you? A: Students are the lifeblood of an educational institution and they have a very unique and important voice in the college community. I look forward
to being out and about on campus and connecting with students on their “turf.” I also plan to schedule regular meetings with student government and club leaders to ensure they have a venue for sharing their perspectives. And, of course, I welcome students approaching me to share their kudos or concerns.
Q: How do you plan to become familiar with the communities and people within the entire Lake Land district? A: One of the things that energized me the most about joining the Lake Land team is the opportunity to work with the communities to develop positive and productive relationships on behalf of the college. I am planning to spend a good portion of my first year at the college traveling the district to meet with business and community leaders. My hope is to listen intently and learn more about their relationship with Lake Land and in what ways the college can partner in their success. I also plan to engage in community service. This is a wonderful way to meet new people and develop new friendships, while giving back to the community.

ith factory closings and mass layoffs throughout the state of Illinois, the strength of the American manufacturing industry is considered by many to be a thing of the past. However, tucked away in a small classroom in Lake Land College’s West Building is a device that puts the Lake Land College Technology Division at the forefront of a manufacturing revolution. “Three-D printing is becoming much more common in the college classroom,” explained Leo Kitten, computer integrated manufacturing technology instructor. “The use of this technology offers affordable manufacturing, quick production, and accessibility to students like few other technologies out there today.” At Lake Land, students studying Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Integrated Manufacturing Technology
(CIMT) regularly use the 3D printer to bring their virtual designs to life. Using software like Autodesk Inventor, a graphics based tool that allows drafters, designers and engineers to develop products by automating complex design tasks, students in these programs design everything from model vehicles,
wind turbines and even computer tablet stands. “When students print out their designs in 3D, it gets them more motivated and interested in the skills they’ve gained as CAD designers,” said Kitten. “They can see the item they designed in real life,
While 3D printers have been around for nearly 30 years, the cost of the equipment has prohibited many educational institutions from bringing them into the classroom. However, over the last decade, the size and cost of 3D printers have become much more reasonable, which gives educational institutions the opportunity to bring them into the classroom. In fact, more than just computer aided design and manufacturing can use this tool. 3D printing has caught the attention of educators from a variety of fields including:
1. Biology and Life Sciences – These students can use objects created
in a 3D printer to study the cross sections of organs like the heart or brain.
2. Chemistry and Physics – Students in these fields could design models

According to CAD student, David Cookson of Bethany, using the 3D printer to see his work helps him to identify issues with the design or challenging concepts from the course work.
A student sends his/her computer aided design to the 3D printer.
“When you get a three-dimensional model, it really gives you a better idea of how things will actually work in the real world rather than just on a computer screen,” said Cookson.

which helps them to better understand the concepts they learn, and therefore enhance their skillset as designers.”
4. History and Archeology – History or archeology students could create replicas of ancient artifacts for closer examination.
Outside of the classroom, 3D printing is used by many manufacturing companies to replace current prototyping methods, product testing and product development. Additionally, 3D printing has made its way into the home for hobbyist use. According to Kitten, both the cost and size of 3D printers has decreased substantially in the last decade which allows for people to use small 3D printers in the home. “Say, as a hobby, you repair classic automobiles and you can’t get the parts anymore. 3D printing will allow you to design the part and print out a functioning piece for you to use,” said Kitten. Such was the case for CAD student, Each portion of the gear box is printed separately on the 3D printer and then assembled, making it a fully functioning piece.

Andrew Geffs of Casey. As a student enrolled in a Dual Credit CAD class, Geffs became interested in 3D design in high school and came to Lake Land to complete a CAD degree. While Geffs was originally interested in pursuing a career in the automotive field, he came to realize how much he enjoyed 3D design and has since married his program of study with his mechanic hobby. For a class assignment, Geffs replicated his 1990 Ford F250 truck, which he then printed in 3D. “I worked on this project for several
weeks, measuring the truck and ensuring that the ratios of my design were exactly to scale,” said Geffs. “I was able to emboss the hood and even design the license plate to match the one on my truck. It’s pretty impressive technology.”
Based on the computer drawing of the item, the 3D printer creates an object by depositing ABS plastic in very thin layers until a three dimensional object is formed. ABS plastic is the same plastic used to make Legos!
Geffs also designed a custom-built gear shifter that he currently uses in his truck. For more information about 3D printing technology or the Computer Aided Design or Computer Integrated Manufacturing Technology programs at Lake Land College, contact Kitten at (217) 234-5316 or
As the plastic is deposited, each layer cures, and once the printer is complete, the item is ready to be used, painted or displayed. Printed 3D objects can be very intricate and often include multiple working parts that can be hinged together to create a functional piece.

Meet the counselors!
Admission to the College does not ensure entrance into a particular course or program of study since applicants may have to meet specific requirements for entrance into certain courses or programs. Preference must be given to qualified in-district students.
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.
Experiencing technical difficulties? The Center for Technology and Professional Development is here to help! The Center offers various support on a variety of topics for students, staff and faculty. It also offers many resources relating to technological issues in teaching and learning or general topics of interest. The Center is available for walk-in assistance any time. The Center is located in the lower level of the Virgil H. Learning Resource Center (library) on campus in Mattoon. Hours of Operation Fall/Spring Hours: Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Summer Hours: Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contact the Center Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 217-234-5439 Fax: 217-234-5384 Location: LRC Lower Level
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.
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.
• Apply now for Fall 2013, Spring 2014, & Summer 2014 by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid online at www.fafsa.gov. • You won’t know the results before the start of fall classes, so have a back-up plan in place for paying for courses before you enroll.
