By on June 29th, 2009 in News

LKCS owners donate $25,000 to area community junior college and create Norbert J. Dudek Graphic Arts Scholarship. Each year, a $1,000.00 Dudek scholarship will be awarded to a second-year graphic design technology student.

The Dudek family recently created a graphic arts scholarship at Illinois Valley Community College with a $25,000 donation to the IVCC Foundation

Beginning next fall, the Norbert J. Dudek Scholarship for Graphic Arts will provide a $1,000 scholarship each year to a second-year graphic design technology student. Financial need and the student’s artistic ability will be considered in the selection.

LKCS is the leader in providing end-to-end marketing, graphic design, commercial printing, direct mail, web development, and statement processing services to financial institutions. Combined with over 50 years of financial marketing expertise, LKCS leverages the latest technologies and techniques to improve marketing results and return on investment for their clients.

Illinois Valley Community College is a Junior College located in Oglesby, Illinois and founded in 1924. The IVCC graphic design program is an exciting new program that prepares students to communicate ideas and information to business and consumer audiences through the planning and creating of printed materials. Students are introduced to the techniques, processes, and basic compositional and conceptual skills of the graphic designer.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students in our program to receive a significant award for their work,” said Francie Skoflanc, graphic design technology program coordinator. “When a business as big as LKCS recognizes our students, it lends even more credibility to our program.”

LKCS has supported the IVCC graphic arts program since its inception in 2000 by donating equipment and having the firm’s staff teach classes and serve on its advisory committee.
