Duct, duct … scorpion!

A scorpion with six legs, two claws, and a tail, all made out of ductwork, is shown on a table in a classroom. Students' names can be seen on different pieces of ductwork.For their final project, students in Derek Matlock‘s sheet metal fabrication class created a scorpion … out of ductwork!

Students worked individually to construct each piece, demonstrating their new knowledge and skills learned in class. Then, working as a team, the class assembled their parts to create the scorpion.

“I wanted the students to use their new knowledge of constructing ductwork to make something that would stand out and showcase our class and facility,” says Matlock.

LLCC awarded USDOT Truck Driver Training Grant

Semi with trailer that says: Workforce Institute at Lincoln Land Community College. Get in. Get trained. Get a job. www.llcc.edu/workforceThe U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has awarded an FY 2021 Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator Safety Training Grant to LLCC in the amount of $92,820. This follows a 2020 grant award.

The grant will be used to enroll at least 28 veterans in LLCC’s Truck Driver Training program that results in graduates earning a Commercial Drivers License (CDL). Interested veterans should call LLCC’s Truck Driver Training program at 217-786-2565 to learn more.

“Given the demand for truck drivers it’s great to see these federal dollars being invested to train veterans who served our country for good paying jobs,” said U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis. “The CDL program at Lincoln Land Community College demonstrates the important role community colleges play in developing a skilled workforce to move our economy forward. As the Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, I continue to advocate for solutions that bolster career and technical education.”

“We are thrilled to again be the recipient of this Truck Driver Training grant to provide free career preparation for our veterans,” said Ken Elmore, chair of the LLCC Board of Trustees. “The great need for trained truck drivers was highlighted even more during the pandemic, and good jobs await our graduates with average starting salaries of $50,000-$70,000. This grant is especially timely and gratifying since it pairs our deserving veterans with jobs in a very high-need industry. ”
