Surgical Technologists

During the month of November, the Surgical Technology students collect donations of pet supplies for Lake Humane Society and Penitentiary Glen. A few of the students delivered those items to Lake Humane on Monday, Dec. 4.

The group filled 2 SUVs with pet food, beds, toys & supplies! Lake Humane Society was floored with the number of items that were donated. In addition to the donated items, the group also raised $290 through their Facebook fundraiser page, and those funds also went to LHS!

Thank you LCC community!

Success Tip

Sometimes, it takes superhero stamina to get through a semester at college. As any superhero would tell you, warding off the bad guys (procrastination, ditching class and cramming), is always worth it in the end. In case you don’t have superhero powers, the learning center has resources to help you achieve academic success including free tutoring, academic success coaching to build better study skills, writing center tutors and lots of math tutors to help you stay on track. Come see us in Room A-1044. To get inspired, check out the superhero quotes infographic in Related Links.
