Dr. Josh Bullock President


elcome to Lake Land College and thank you for joining us for this exciting Laker volleyball match. I’d like to take this time to formally introduce myself to each of you. My name is Josh Bullock and I am the new president of Lake Land College. Although I’ve only been at Lake Land for a short time, it is evident the entire college community is fully committed to creating a meaningful and fulfilling educational experience for everyone, and Laker volleyball is no exception. As a Division I member of the NJCAA, the Lady Laker volleyball team excels on and off the court. Our players challenge themselves every day to set very high standards. This is seen through the level of play they bring to the athletic program at the college and their accomplishments in the classroom. Led by Coach Amory Porter, our volleyball team is comprised of some of the finest athletes in the world, and we are very proud to have them as members of the Lake Land family. Throughout the year, Lake Land’s five inter-collegiate athletic programs build a well-rounded college experience for students. Being a student athlete is hard work, but the benefits of playing and studying at the college level are immeasurable. Our players’ athletic ability, dedication and team spirit are second to none. Thank you for your support of the team, our coaching staff and the college. I look forward to seeing you at the next Laker event! Go Lakers!
