WOMEN’S LINK HELPS AMANDA LAPP FIND HER PLACE AT LCCC

With the help of a student worker position, Amanda Lapp found her place at Lorain County Community College. The Avon Lake woman will graduate with an associate’s degree in Business Administration on May 18.

Lapp began at LCCC in the fall of 2006, but it wasn’t until the past year when she began work at LCCC’s Women’s Link that she found her calling on campus. By working in the office, Lapp was learned more about services offered and was able to benefit from many of the programs offered.

“Women’s Link as helped me with issues of feeling overwhelmed as a student, a single mom, and work. Women's Link and Lorain County Community College have helped me turn my dream into reality,” she said.

Her dedication at work earned her the respect of the Women’s Link staff, as well.
“Amanda is an excellent example of how students grow and achieve things at LCCC,” said Tracey Maxwell, Women’s Link Coordinator. “Amanda works diligently to complete her education. Even in tough courses, Amanda persists until she succeeds. She wants to set a positive example for her son about the importance of a good education.”

While a student at LCCC, Lapp was in a serious car accident that left her with a brain injury that required her to be reassessed academically. Despite the setback, Lapp persevered with her studies.

Lapp will continue her education by pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from The University of Toledo through LCCC’s University Partnership.
