LCC North

On July 13, 2015, Lansing Community College (LCC) approved a name change of “LCC St. Johns Clinton County Center” to “LCC North.” The name change reflects the student base of the campus which draws from beyond Clinton County.

Luanne Bibbee, interim director of LCC North said, “The name change to LCC North reinforces LCC’s commitment to the northern regions and communicates that the College is investing in the community and the individuals it serves.”

The overall goal is to implement increased course offerings, including Continuing Education and workshops, to meet evolving community needs. Questions about the name change can be directed to Luanne at or (989) 224-2017.

Lost Painting

A local family is renewing its search for a long-lost oil painting that once hung at LCC.

In the impressionistic painting, a girl sprawls in a tutu, one foot pulled up on the seat, with her hands resting on her knees and her chin turned to one side and on her hands.

That girl is Jean Elton’s daughter, Lu Sann Sedelmaier, when she was a child, the way Elton’s ex-husband, Grand Ledge artist Norm Sedelmaier, painted her 50 years ago.

Nominate a Vet!

LCC is seeking nominations of local men and women who have served in the armed forces with distinguished service. The selected veterans will be honored in a ceremony on November 11, 2015 at the Veterans Memorial located in the Health & Human Services Building – Fred Abood Rotunda on the Downtown Campus.

Nominees may have served in any branch of the service during any military action, conflict, or war. Special emphasis is placed on WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam era veterans. Our goal is to honor local service men and women who, while serving in any capacity in the military, distinguished himself/herself by extraordinary heroism, or other action worthy of this commemoration. The act or acts of heroism must have been so notable and have involved risk of life so extraordinary as to set the individual apart from his or her comrades.

To submit a service member for consideration, please complete the online form or submit a hard copy to the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs in the Huron Building. Both online and downloadable forms are available here:

Nominations will be accepted until July 31, 2015.
