TODAY: SGA angel tree gifts due; BOT meets

For those of you who took a tag from the Student Government Association (SGA) angel tree, please drop off the gift to the Student Life Office before the end of TODAY. If you did not get a chance to get a tag, the opportunity to do so may be available if there are gifts that do not get turned in for individuals at the Springfield Retirement Village. To assist SGA in making sure everyone receives a gift, please contact Marie Robert, marie.robert@llcc.edu, to find out if anyone is still unaccounted for.

The LLCC Board of Trustees meets tonight at 5:15 p.m. in the R.H. Stephens Room, Menard Hall. Find the agenda HERE.

Community College Completion Corps continues through Friday

Phi Theta Kappa (with assistance from Student Government Association) is conducting a “Community College Completion Corps” (“C4”) event in A. Lincoln Commons every day this week (Nov. 16-20) from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Both students and employees are being asked to sign a pledge card and a banner, showing their commitment and support for students completing their degrees. Participants will get free popcorn and a C4 sticker to wear! The ESAs in Beardstown and Litchfield campuses are also hosting this event.

Interested employees should stop by the C4 table and sign a pledge card and banner. You can also help by encouraging students to sign a pledge card. This semi-annual event is intended to further promote a culture valuing completion at LLCC. Every participant counts!
