Notable Alumni: Lori L. Sundberg

From the Register-Mail:

Each week, The Register-Mail will feature a graduate of a local high school or college who has accomplished notable things in her chosen field. This Saturday’s notable alumna is Lori L. Sundberg, GHS Class of 1976, and a woman whose history is impossibly intertwined with Carl Sandburg College. The recipient of a 1977 cosmetology certificate from CSC, Sundberg attended Sandburg in the early ’90s on her way to three additional degrees, including a doctorate. She returned to CSC as an instructor and later administrator. On Tuesday, Sundberg was named the college’s sixth president. She will replace the retiring Tom Schmidt in July 2010.

Occupation: CSC vice president of academic services.

College: Bachelor’s degree in economics and history, Knox College; master’s in business administration, Western Illinois University; and doctorate in business administration from St. Ambrose University.

Announcement of Sundberg’s appointment in the Register-Mail.
