Holyoke Community College celebrated the 30th anniversary of its Integrated Learning programs Thursday with a reception in the Kittredge Center.
As part of the celebration, awards were given to three students for outstanding achievement in each of the three Integrative Learning programs.
Lily Timpane, a liberal arts major from Great Barrington, received the award for outstanding achievement in Honors, HCC's longest standing Integrative Learning program (30 years). Matthew LaPete, a sustainability studies major from Ware, won the award for Learning Communities, which was started 20 years ago by HCC professors Jack Mino and David Ram. Robyn Sutton-Fernandez, a liberal arts major from Holyoke, received the award for Service Learning, which has been putting together partnerships between HCC classes and community groups for the past 10 years.
