PRM introduces new marketing campaign: Go Near. Go Far.

We all know students who chose to go to college near home (LLCC) and went far in their careers and lives. That’s the basis for the new LLCC marketing campaign “Go Near. Go Far.” We want Printto spread the word that students can go to LLCC, receive an excellent education, save money and avoid student loan debt, then go far in their next step, whether that is transferring to a four-year institution or entering into the workforce.

Please help us spread the “Go Near. Go Far.” message! One way is by adding the graphic to your email signature. Click on the “Go Near. Go Far” image, then right click to copy and place into your email signature.

Professor Chris McDonald presents “From Springfield to Schlestadt” April 11

Political Science Professor Chris McDonald, Ph.D., will present “From Springfield to Schlestadt” on Saturday, April 11 from 9 to 10 a.m. The presentation is being held in the Trutter Center at LLCC-Springfield, 5250 Shepherd Road. The public is invited to the free event.

Professor McDonald’s presentation is based on his new book,  book cover“‘Three Lying or Four Sitting’—From the Front in a Ford,” which gives an eyewitness account of World War I through the detailed, literate and humorous letters of Springfield native and Harvard student Kent Dunlap Hagler. Professor McDonald will provide a glimpse of Mr. Hagler’s life as an ambulance driver and the local connection to the Great War.

A book signing will follow the presentation. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. Cost of the book is $19.95, plus tax. All proceeds from book sales will benefit the LLCC Foundation general scholarship fund in honor of Kent Dunlap Hagler.

In addition to the presentation and book signing, an exhibit containing WWI artifacts is being presented by the Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter Museum. Items on display include original handwritten letters by Mr. Hagler to his parents, a certified copy of a letter written by General John Pershing to Mr. Hagler and the members of the American Expeditionary Force, the “Croix de Guerre” (War Cross) and citation awarded to Mr. Hagler, the actual tin plate featuring the War Cross that was mounted on the side of Mr. Hagler’s ambulance during the war, plus other Great War artifacts. The exhibit will be on display through the end of April.
