The 10th and final Brian McMillen Memorial Run/Walk was held May 27 with more than 500 runners, walkers and volunteers participating. The event has raised over $80,000 through the years to support the LLCC Brian McMillen Veterans Scholarship, which is now self-sustaining, along with several charities. Overall 10K winners were Emily Kuriann and Daniel O’Keefe. See the other results. State Representative Tim Butler presented a House resolution in honor of Brian and the event to Brian’s parents.

Effective immediately, LLCC will no longer process official transcripts. To better serve our students, LLCC has partnered with Parchment for the production of our official transcripts. Using Parchment enables our students to order their LLCC transcript from anywhere at any time. Students can order transcripts from Parchment three ways:
- LLCC website: Direct students to go to our webpage and type “transcript” in the search box. They will be redirected to a page explaining the process and providing a link to Parchment.
- WebAdvisor: WebAdvisor provides a quick link to our Parchment site in the “Students” section under Academic Profile.
- Parchment website: Students and former students can visit Parchment.com. In the box that asks “What school did you attend?” they should type “Lincoln Land Community College”. This will direct them to our site within Parchment.
LLCC staff can still provide students with unofficial transcripts. Unofficial transcripts are processed for students in person at any LLCC location or through WebAdvisor. Students requesting in person must have a photo ID. Transcripts requests (whether official or unofficial) will no longer be accepted by email, fax, or phone.
