Charlotte Lee of Sycamore has been selected as the winner of the Illinois Community College Trustees Association Paul Simon Student Essay Contest at Kishwaukee College. 

Lee received a certificate and reimbursement of her spring tuition and fees from the Board of Trustees at their monthly meeting held April 8. Lee’s essay will now be entered in the statewide competition to possibly earn an additional $500 stipend to be used toward fall educational expenses.

The Paul Simon Essay Contest is held annually. Each community college in the state of Illinois is invited to hold an essay competition for its students, select the best essay submitted at their school, and forward that essay to the state-level competition. 

The essays submitted are required to be no more than 500 words on the topic “How My Community College Changed My Life.” Lee’s winning essay traces the impact that her first year at Kishwaukee College has had on her life financially, personally and academically.

If her essay is selected as the statewide winner, Lee will be invited to the annual ICCTA Conference in June.
