Lakeland University was well represented at Monday night’s heavily attended Pathways to Success event at Sheboygan South High School.
The event was for Sheboygan Area School District eighth-graders and their parents, and current South High students.
Cindy Lindstrom, LU’s assistant professor of computer science, was joined by Lakeland students Alex Kerr and Daniel Koerber, along with two of LU’s popular robots. The robots, under the direction of Koerber and Kerr, bowed, threw a pencil and even “dabbed” (a celebratory gesture made famous by NFL quarterback Cam Newton) for amused onlookers.
After the hundreds of students and parents met with South High administrators about transitioning from middle school to high school, they poured into the Acuity Fieldhouse to learn about high school activities and regional college and university options.
In addition to the computer science table, LU featured an admissions table. Jason Duff, K-12 relations manager, talked to youngsters and parents about the merits and affordability of an LU education.
