SPRINGFIELD, April 29, 2021 – Lincoln Land Community College is launching a free program in June to help graduating high school seniors boost their writing and math skills in preparation for college in the fall.
LLCC Summer Boost classes will be offered on the LLCC Springfield campus Mondays-Thursdays beginning June 7 and concluding Wednesday, June 30. Taught by LLCC faculty in a face-to-face format, Writing Summer Boost will take place from 9 a.m. to noon and Math Summer Boost from 1-4 p.m. Students participating in both Summer Boost sessions will receive a free Quiznos lunch each day. Books, supplies, T-shirts and bus passes will also be provided at no charge.
“We recognize the past year has presented many challenges to graduating high school seniors,” said Dr. Charlotte Warren, president of LLCC. “We’re launching LLCC Summer Boost to give them and any student who will be new to college next fall a strong foundation when they begin at LLCC or elsewhere.”
