LEAGUE grant application deadline approaching

Applications for LEAGUE grants are due in the LLCC Foundation on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 5 p.m.  Access grant guidelines and the application and budget worksheet. They may also be obtained on the Foundation website. Approximately $10,000 will be awarded at the LEAGUE kickoff luncheon on Tuesday, March 26.

Faculty and staff make these grants possible through their generous giving to the annual faculty and staff campaign each spring.  Thanks to your donations, a grant was provided to respiratory care in LLCC Health Professions for the purchase of a child size manikin. The manikin allows students to practice with the correct size equipment used on a 5-year-old patient.
