Alum Success

Keith M. Campbell

"The education that I received at Lake Superior State University has opened many doors for me. I have worked with Firefighters and Paramedics for over thirty years as a co-worker, educator, and student. I have been very blessed in my life to have these opportunities. I truly believe that education is the cornerstone of everyone’s career and LSSU provides the best.

My future goals are to become the Director of a Fire Science program and follow in the footsteps of the great educators that I have had the privilege of learning from. This will not be easy, but I believe that these Professors have prepared me to be successful. My achievements will be a direct result of the knowledge that they have bestowed upon me. It will then be my obligation to share this knowledge with others. ”

A Tax Time Reminder

The advent of a new year means that tax paperwork will soon be arriving. So, if you are still involved in your student’s tax return preparation, you’ll need to gather those incoming W-2s from on- or off-campus jobs. Talk about exchanging these forms now so that they don’t get lost in the jumble of your student’s busy life.
And, if your student does his own tax return, encourage him to check into campus tax resources. Some organizations offer free tax preparation assistance to students. The accounting department may offer help, too. Students who learn to do their own taxes are acquiring a lifetime skill.

Start preparing now… April 15 will arrive sooner that you think!
