ESTHERVILLE - Dr. Lisa Stich, Executive Dean of the Estherville campus of Iowa Lakes Community College, has been awarded the prestigious Aspen Presidential Fellowship for Community College Excellence, a leadership program aimed at preparing the next generation of community college presidents to transform institutions across the nation to help students be more successful both in college and in the workforce.

The fellowship is awarded by the Aspen Institute's College Excellence Program, an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, D.C.that aims to advance higher education practices, policies, and leadership that significantly improve student outcomes.

"Lisa Stich is a great example of our leadership team at Iowa Lakes," said Valerie Newhouse, President of Iowa Lakes Community College. "We feel she will be able to gain educational information which can be used to inspire our team as we move forward."

Stich and the 39 other Aspen Presidential Fellows will embark on a 10-month fellowship beginning in July 2018.

"I am thrilled and honored to be part of the Aspen Presidential Fellows and I look forward to the learning experience and being able to bring it back to the Iowa Lakes community," said Stich.

Stich was selected through a rigorous process that considered her abilities to take strategic risks, lead strong teams and cultivate partnerships, as well as focus on results-oriented improvements in student success and access.
