Elgin Community College
Elgin Community College (1999)
After completing Elgin Community College one semester
early, honor student Lisandra Martinez accepted two government internships in Washington, D.C.,
and graduated from George Washington University at age 20.
She then returned to her alma mater to serve as the liaison for area high school students
interested in becoming bilingual educators.
"ECC has been my family, my second home, my place of learning, and a launch pad for my professional
life," she says. "I had no idea that this institution would play such an important role in my life."
Lisandra Martinez accepts ICCTA's 2003
