Lakeland Link Newsletter: April 11, 2019
When Jennifer Heculuck decided to return to school, it had been 30 years since she last sat in a classroom. At the age of 50, the mother of two made a life-changing decision to pursue her dream of becoming a teacher and enrolled in Lakeland College’s university transfer program. She shared her story on April 4 at the 2019 President's Gala - an event that raises funds to help students, including Ms. Heculuck, accomplish their goals.
