Lake Land College Honors Program recognizes students

From analyzing historical speeches to extracting dyes from plant matter, members of the Lake Land College Honors Program have been conducting research this year in a variety of topics. Several Honors Program students recently presented their findings at the annual honors luncheon, where they were also recognized for their achievements.

There were 13 members of the Honors Program this year, including freshmen Dan Ammann, agriculture transfer major, Highland; Daniel Brown, conservation/pre-wildlife major, Neoga; Todd Goeckner, pre-engineering major, Teutopolis; Hannah Fogleman, business administration major, Shelbyville; and Garrett Haddock, undecided, Windsor. Sophomores include Chelsee McMahan, pre-nursing major, Sullivan; Lance Workman, pre-med major, Effingham; Emily Adams, English major, Windsor; Michael Rosenbaum, history major, Arthur; Amy Probst, pre-pharmacy major, Teutopolis; Jonathan Austin, Decatur; Kaylee Randolph, Shelbyville; and Rex Colgrove, math education major, Mattoon.

Both McMahan and Workman will graduate from the Honors Program with Associate Honors Status, which requires that they have earned at least a 3.5 overall GPA, that they are graduating from a college transfer program, and that they successfully complete at least two honors course options while in the program.

Those graduating with Full Honors Status were Adams, Rosenbaum, Probst and Colgrove. Full Honors Status requires that each student earned at least a 3.5 overall GPA, graduated from a college transfer program, and completed four honors course options.

Six honors students presented their honors coursework. Probst discussed her honors work in anatomy and physiology, and specifically talked about the medication phenoxybenzamine and genetic condition pheochromocytoma, which she studied under the guidance of advisor James Fillipiak, adjunct science instructor. Workman discussed his honors work in botany, advised by Lucinda Horton, biological science teacher, and his project of extracting dyes from plant matter. Haddock, who was advised by Laura Bacino-Althaus, psychology instructor, presented his honors work in social psychology which dealt with anchoring and adjusting heuristic theory. Adams, advised by Marcy Satterwhite, business instructor, presented on Smart Board technology within the teaching profession. Rosenbaum, advised by Ed Thomas, speech communications teacher, discussed his work with analyzing four historic speeches including Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream,” Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address,” Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s address to Congress following the invasion of Pearl Harbor and Ronald Reagan’s address to the nation the night of the space shuttle Challenger disaster. Finally, Colgrove whose advisor was Walter McHenry, math instructor, presented his honors work in differential equations and forced motion and resonance.
