ICCTA Outstanding Faculty Member Award
Danville Area Community College
Kathy Sturgeon's love for science and teaching is apparent in the banner headline
on her faculty web site: "Thumbs up for mathematics and physics!"
As co-director of Danville Area Community College's 21st Century Scholars program, she has developed tours of local
industries to help students move from school to work. Her colleagues credit her with single-handedly marketing
Danville's engineering program and increasing internship opportunities for students.

Sturgeon also brings science to life by coordinating "Space Jam," "Spaced Out"
and "Physics is Phun" events for kids, as well as a Career Scene Investigation for high school students interested
Her web site also features this quote from children's author Shel Silverstein:
"Listen to the mustn'ts child,
Listen to the don'ts
Listen to the shouldn'ts
The impossibles, the won'ts
Listen to the never haves
Then listen close to me --
Anything can happen, child,
Anything can be."
Thanks to outstanding faculty members like Kathy Sturgeon, students can believe that 'anything can happen and
anything can be.'
