Lake Superior College chemistry faculty member Kent Voelkner was honored as an Outstanding Educator through the Minnesota State Board of Trustees Awards for Excellence program in April.
Voelkner was cited as a remarkable chemistry teacher who also serves as a respected advisor for the LSC Student Senate. He has guided and supported several generations of students to grow into the leaders that few knew they could become when first starting out.
He was among a select group of Minnesota State faculty members who were recognized for their instructional expertise, exemplary teaching strategies and service to their students, college and communities.
The Awards for Excellence were established in 2007 by the Minnesota State Board of Trustees to spotlight teaching and service faculty who prepare students for their professional, scholarly and civic lives. For more information, please visit: https://www.minnstate.edu/stories/botawards/index.html
