MATTOON, IL -(Effingham Radio)- Each spring at Lake Land College, faculty and students square off to raise money for scholarships.
This year, the annual Faculty vs. Student Softball Game raised nearly $1,800.
During the event’s 16-year-history, more than $22,000 has been raised.
This year, the students won both games 4-2.
“After sixteen years of playing the faculty vs. student softball game, the instructors’ age finally caught up with them, being soundly beat by younger and more athletic students!”
English Instructor Matt Landrus, who organizes the event every year, said.
“But more importantly, the game was a huge success, raising the second highest total in the event’s history.”
