Fox Valley Collegians


The accomplishments of Fox Valley's best and brightest students include:

- Kristin Anderson of Cary served as an orientation assistant for the Focus 2000 sessions at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Ind. Anderson, a sophomore, is a prelaw major in the College of Business Administration. She is a graduate of Christian Liberty Academy.

She was one of 16 assistants who helped more than 500 incoming freshmen and their parents become acquainted with the Valparaiso campus in the two-day orientation sessions. These students were instrumental in showing families around and explaining all of the facets of VU.

"Orientation assistants go through intensive training before Focus," said Lisa Barry, coordinator. "They have to know the answers to all of the questions, or at least know where to find the answers."

- Leah Esposito, of Sleepy Hollow, received an associate's degree from Holy Cross College in Notre Dame, Ind., during spring commencement exercises on May 13.

- Meagan Landwehr, daughter of Thomas Landwehr of Gilberts, has been named to the deans list at Rockford College in Rockford. Landwehr. The senior majoring in child development, earned a GPA of at least 3.25 with no grade below a C for the spring semester.

- Nicholas Lazzaro II, of Algonquin, was named to the deans list at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Mich. Recipients of the deans list must carry a minimum of 10 hours and maintain a 3.5 GPA out of a possible 4.0.

- Jill Regan, of Dundee, attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine from June 18 to 28 in Philadelphia, Penn. Having demonstrated academic achievement and an interest in a career related to science and health, Regan joined more than 330 high school juniors and seniors from across the United States at the conference. Students learned first-hand about medical ethics, the global effects of infectious disease, genetic research, public health and many other subjects relevant to the field.

"The National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine gives students like Jill Regan an early opportunity to explore in depth what it takes to reach their career goals," said Donna Weldin, executive director of the NYLF. "Many students arrive knowing they want to pursue a career in medicine. We provide some of the essential resources for these young people to determine where, inside the medical universe, they wish to land."

Dr. Dennis Novack of MCP Hahnemann University welcomed the students to Philadelphia and discussed the challenges and rewards of leadership in the medical community. He told the students, "Many people that strive to achieve goals in the medical field are perfectionists. But remember, mistakes are an inevitable part of the journey, and sometimes provide the most educational of learning experiences."

During the conference, the students visited some of the best institutions of medical learning in the country, including Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, MCP Hahnemann University and others. During their visits, the students interacted with doctors, nurses, scientists and professors to gather a greater understanding of medical history, standards and trends.

Throughout the program, Regan and fellow students explored the realms of public health and problem-based learning in a series of intense and stimulating simulations. The program culminated in a simulation that explored medical ethics, allowing students to apply what they learned throughout the course of the forum.

- Arielle Semmel, of Cary, spent her spring semester in Cork, Ireland, as part of the study abroad program at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn. Approximately 30 percent of Gustavus' graduating seniors have a study abroad experience and had the opportunity to study in a variety of locations throughout the world, ranging from Australia to India and Japan to Sweden. …
