Columbia College-Lake County bids farewell to Lynn Blake

On October 30 Columbia College-Lake County will lose a long-time staff member.

After six years of service, Lynn Blake will be moving to Michigan to be with her fiancĂ©. Lynn started with Columbia College in September 2003 as an administrative assistant. While assisting students with registration, financial aid, and a myriad of other duties, she also pursued her bachelor’s degree with Columbia College. In May 2006 Lynn completed her bachelor of arts in general studies with minors in criminal justice and psychology, credentials that qualified her to become an academic adviser when a position opened in March 2007. Across her two positions, Lynn has had a unique opportunity to serve students at every stage in their pursuit of higher education.

“Lynn has been a terrific employee, who has never been afraid to speak her mind,” commented Campus Director, Stephen Stephany. “She will be missed by both the staff and the students she serves, but we wish her the best of luck in this new chapter of her life.” Lynn plans to continue working in education, while also pursuing her love of snowmobiling, scuba diving, and travelling the globe. Please join us in wishing her a fond farewell!
