LLCC hosting fifth annual college prep summit

SPRINGFIELD — Lincoln Land Community College is hosting the fifth annual College Prep Summit Thursday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Trutter Center, LLCC-Springfield, 5250 Shepherd Road. LLCC’s Office of Retention and Student Success is partnering with Springfield School District 186 and the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to present the event.

High school students from area schools who identify with groups that have been historically underrepresented or disadvantaged in higher education are invited to attend. The program consists of a keynote address by Rev. Courtney Carson, a former teen drug dealer and gang member who transformed his life to become a minister, mentor, prominent leader and motivational speaker.

In addition to the keynote address, the event includes small group sessions, campus tours, a student panel and lunch. Topics covered include information about getting ready, getting in and getting through college, and obstacles students may have to overcome on their way to college success.

The event aims to encourage prospective college students that higher education can be a reality and that there is support for them along the way. Representatives from various colleges and universities in Springfield and the surrounding area are participating.

Students interested in participating in the College Prep Summit may contact their high school guidance counselor or Chris Barry, LLCC director of retention and student success, at 217-786-2410.
