Thank you from Eileen Tepatti

It’s hard to know where to begin, so I will start from the bottom of my heart.  A sincere thank you to everybody for their expressions of sympathy to me and my family over the death of my brother, Jerry Melton.  It was a very difficult situation for his immediate family, mother, siblings, friends, colleagues, and students.  Whether you sent a card or email, stopped me in the hallway to say a kind word, attended the memorial service, sent a flower, plant, or remembrance, or offered up a quiet thought or prayer … I want you all to know how much your thoughtfulness is appreciated.  Thank you so much.

LLCC’s “Head Start” Ag Safety Program wins statewide award

The “Head Start” Ag Safety Program, in which a group of LLCC ag students were trained and certified last spring in subjects such as confined space entry, hazardous materials and safety procedures, has won the 2013 Illinois Council of Community College Administrators (ICCCA) Innovation Award.  The training was provided by the Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association (IFCA) and the Asmark Institute in Bloomington. The goals of the training were to educate students about industry regulations and reduce farm accidents.  Rich Teeter, assistant professor of agriculture, coordinated the program which will now be offered to  other community colleges and further unite education and industry. Congratulations!
