LCC Seeks to Recognize Alumni

Lamar Community College is currently accepting nominations for its 2013 Alumnus/Alumna of the Year. This award has become even more meaningful as LCC celebrates its 75th anniversary and is reaching out to its alumni. Nomination forms are available at and must include the nominee’s name, complete contact information, summary of education & career, special interests, and any other information which would assist the selection committee to recognize the nominee’s achievements and how his or her success began at LCC. Nominations are due on March 8.

Last year, LCC honored the Honorable Norm Arends, a former district court judge who has stayed in Southeast Colorado and contributed greatly to the area. In 2011, it honored world champion barrel racing competitor and Olympic athlete Marlene (Schiffer) McRae as its alumna of the year. And in 2010 the college selected ag businessman Mike Callicrate. In the past, it has recognized Cheryl Sanchez, LCC’s current vice president of Academic & Student Services, and former LCC instructor LeRoy Brase as well. In total, the college has honored approximately forty former students in the past twenty-five years.

Nominees can be either male or female and must have attended Lamar Community College for a minimum of 24 credit hours or one year (two semesters). The recipient will be recognized at LCC’s Antelope Night celebration on April 26, 2013. The Alumnus and his/her guests are also encouraged to attend LCC’s 74th Commencement the next morning. LCC will host a Homecoming lunch for alumni and guests after Commencement as well.

Founded in September of 1937, the college is excited about welcoming former students and staff back to campus. Past students, alumni of all ages, and former staff are encouraged to register online at
