Graduates Telicia Patrick and Perry Godwin were chosen as the 2014 Career Makeover Winners in the first-ever Graduate Career Makeover Contest at LCC.

The contest was sponsored by the LCC Career & Employment Services Department, in conjunction with a generous donation from the Sue Trimmer Memorial Foundation Fund. Trimmer was a long-time LCC employee who passed away in 2012 due to cancer.

“The Career Makeover event was a special way to give back to the students for their hard work and dedication to their educational endeavors and the memory of Sue Trimmer, who always promoted and emphasized career readiness to our students,” said Lisa Reed, director of LCC’s CES & Apprenticeships.

Applicants were evaluated on their accomplishments while attending LCC, barriers they overcame to graduate, and their financial need.

Patrick and Godwin, as winners of the contest, each received a prize package including professional interview apparel, haircut, style & make-up application, Sirius tablet, portfolio, brief case, and consultation services for resume and interview preparation.

Patrick is pursuing a career in paralegal and human services. Godwin plans to go into the field of information technology (IT).

Reed offered special thanks to contest sponsors Gibson’s Books and Beans, the LCC Computer Information Technology Program, and Panopoulos Salon. Each provided donations.

“The event would not have been possible without the coordination from Rebecca Sowa, LCC internship development manager,” Reed said. “Sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of this event. We look forward to next year’s contest.”


  1. Thanks to everyone involved in making this opportunity possible. I am over joyed to have been the selected female candidate in the first year the contest was offered. Faculty will be happy to know that a few short weeks after the makeover I landed a position at our local Community Mental Health, wearing a few pieces from the shopping spree at that ;). This has been a wondrous year for me academically/professionally. Thanks Again!
