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 Saturdayâ€™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 â€™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 collegeâ€™s sixth president. She will replace the retiring Tom Schmidt in July 2010.
Occupation: CSC vice president of academic services.
College: Bachelorâ€™s degree in economics and history, Knox College; masterâ€™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.
