ICCTA Lifelong Learning Award
Elgin Community College
John McDowell is a retired grade-school teacher who continues to pursue his love of learning. During the past 16 years,
he has accrued nearly 300 credit hours for coursework in science, math, music, and foreign languages.
In addition to earning a certificate in paralegal studies in 1995, he has learned to play the piano and clarinet and
regularly performs with the Elgin Community College Concert Band. He also tutors fellow students in microbiology.
John McDowell accepts ICCTA's 2009 Lifelong
Learning Award from ICCTA president Barbara Oilschlager.
"I found that Elgin Community College has provided me with a constant source of inspiration and
enrichment in my quest to fulfill my desire to learn," says McDowell.
