Joey Stott graduated from Highland Community College with highest honors (4.0 grade point average) in May 2009 and received the prestigious Citizenship Award. Joey dedicated a significant portion of her time to Highland Community College as well, working as a student tutor in the College Success Center, serving as vice-president of the student senate and as a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society.

There is more to Joey�s story than her distinguished academic record. Joey is a five-year cancer survivor who operates a rescue farm west of Lena and serves as a Jo Daviess Mounted Patrol Officer. During finals week in May 2009, Joey�s home caught fire and the family was forced to move into trailers on the property. Later that month, fellow HCC students nominated Joey for ABC�s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. On September 9, ABC announced that Joey Stott and her family would receive a new home built in 106 hours by Hasken Construction and a number of local volunteer contractors. funny photos

Private donations can be made in support of the scholarship fund through the Highland Community College Foundation by contacting Susan Atherton at 815-599-3406 or susan.atherton@highland.edu.
