Exciting week! I will be receiving the 2018 Alumnus Achievement Award from Lake Land College in Mattoon, Illinois and giving a (short!) commencement speech on Friday night at the Lake Land College graduation. As a daughter of an instructor at Lake Land College, I grew up with Lake Land and I am proud to have it part of my educational building blocks. Lake Land gave me the requisite tools in my toolkit to march forward in my career. I am a big supporter of community college education and honored for this award. Please let me know if you will be at the ceremony!
