Waubonsee Honors Program Sets Students Up For Success

Waubonsee Community College launched its Honors Program in the 1986-1987 academic year. At that time, the program offered high-ability students the opportunity to register for honors course sections in English, Sociology and Communications. In the 2016-2017 academic year, Elmhurst College added to the prestige of the Waubonsee Honors Program by providing one Honors Program Graduate a scholarship to continue their education at Elmhurst.

The first recipient of the Elmhurst College Honors Program Scholarship was Lorena Gonzalez of Aurora.

The Purpose of Technical Education

There I was, in a SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus…) like you see firefighters wear and a full firefighting outfit to go back down into the reactor plant to check for a steam rupture. I was put in this wonderful outfit because I was the chief reactor watch, and supervised the mechanical watch-standers of that reactor plant.  The reactor had been scrammed, the engineering spaces were hot (think sauna hot), and everyone had been evacuated. My “newbie” (newly qualified watch-stander) had reported to a steam rupture. While steam powers turbines, and powers your home through the electrical grid, it also quickly kills.... 

Today, I teach most of the classes in the Automation Technology Degree (AMT) Program at Waubonsee Community College.
