Patrick Moore, director, concurrent enrollment and Kyla Kruse, assistant director, public relations, will be participating in Leadership Springfield, sponsored by the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce. Leadership Springfield is a 14-week series of half-day programs, beginning Sept. 5, during which participants gain leadership skills and in-depth exposure to critical issues affecting the Springfield area. Outside of the regular program sessions, participants will also be challenged to exercise creativity and problem-solving skills by working as teams on projects for the benefit of area not-for-profit organizations.
Dave Pietrzak, program director, aviation, served as one of the four evaluators of the simulated aircraft disaster drill Aug. 26 at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport, involving more than 30 local, state, federal and private agencies. Dave was asked to lend his expertise to critique the exercise and participated in a post-drill debriefing as well. LLCC aviation students assisted behind the scenes. Dave took these photos.
