Alum Success

Chuck last attended Lake Superior State College in 1985 earning an Associate Degree in Natural Resources. After working in the land surveying industry for fourteen years he started his own cartography and GIS consulting business in 2004. In the fall of 2008 Chuck returned to LSSU to pursue a BS degree in the newly created Applied Geographic Information program. Chuck’s senior research project was a geospatial distribution analysis of applicants to LSSU. This study will help the university better understand its potential student market and lays the foundation for further research into how place influences the conversion of university applicants into students. Chuck plans to continue to grow his consulting business, No Boundaries Maps and Graphics, and resides in Sault Ste. Marie with his wife Bev and daughter Theresa.

Carl & Bernitta Burtt Scholarship

This named scholarship was established by the children of Carl and Bernitta Burtt in honor of their parents to benefit a student majoring in any course of study in the College of Arts, Letters and Social Sciences. Carl Burtt was the second eldest son in a family of thirteen. He dropped out of school at the age of twelve in order to support his brothers and sisters. Although he was unable to complete his own education, he always maintained the value of a good education. Carl was an avid reader and a history buff. He enjoyed learning and made a point to pass this enjoyment on to his children. Carl married the former Bernitta Wilcox in 1944 and they had six children. Though she did not finish high school, Bernitta valued education and vowed that all of her children would complete high school and would be supported in their effort to attend college. They taught their children that an education was an asset that would always serve them well, and was something that each would keep with them for life. Recipients must be of sophomore status with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and demonstrate financial need.

What made Rachel's Lake Superior State experience so unique was the practical research she did with top-notch faculty. "I really enjoyed working with environmental chemistry professor Judy Westrick and biologist Deb Stai," Rachel says. "For my senior project, we evaluated a lab method for cultivating a fungus that causes infections in humans." [ more ]
