Lansing, Mich. – LCC students Nael Hallak, Rolando Linares and Remington Prentice were recently awarded scholarships to further their education at Lansing Community College.

Hallak is the 2021 recipient of the New Beginnings scholarship through the Lake Trust Foundation. He is currently enrolled in LCC’s Fire Academy program to become a paramedic/firefighter and hopes to work part-time as a firefighter and someday continue his education in the medical field.

Linares is the recipient of the Thomas J. Pung Memorial Nursing Scholarship. A first-generation college student, Linares suffered academic dismissal from three colleges and is returning to classes for the first time in 15 years.

Remington Prentice is a student in the Aviation Technology Program and is the recipient of the William M. Fanning Maintenance Scholarship.

We are extremely proud of these students for their commitment to academic achievement and we salute their efforts.
