It’s not too late to join the LEAGUE!

Tville Penny Wars

LLCC-Taylorville’s Penny Wars entry mimicked the popular Jeopardy game show and included answers to 24 questions relating to LLCC such as “The original LLCC Taylorville was located here.” The correct question is “What is the Taylorville Square?”

Thank you to all faculty, staff and retirees who joined us for lunch at the kickoff of the annual LEAGUE Campaign on Tuesday. As of Tuesday, 112 people have donated to the campaign this year for a total of $40,000.

It’s not too late! Stop by the Foundation office for a chance to win $150 cash if you make a pledge to the campaign and choose payroll deduction. Gifts of any amount are appreciated and important in helping us meet our students’ educational goals.

Tickets are available through April 1 to win the St. Louis Cardinal basket and 50/50. And don’t forget to bring your pennies, coins or bills to place in the Penny Wars containers. Proceeds from Penny Wars benefit the Pay It Forward Fund for emergency student needs. Congratulations to Taylorville for winning the best decorated Penny Wars container!
