Learning Center Director Receives Fellowship

February 20, 2020 |

East Central College, Union, Learning Center Executive Director Erin Anglin recently received a fellowship for her work in improving the educational opportunities for students.

Anglin was selected as a College Board Regional Fellowship recipient in Late January.

She is among the first in the region to receive the fellowship from the College Board through a pilot program. Regional Council leaders developed the program in direct response to feedback received from the educators they represent.

According to The College Board representatives, Anglin’s application for the fellowship “impressed and inspired” the review panel.

The organization is paying Anglin’s transportation, lodging and registration costs for the ACCUPLACER (testing system) National Conference June 24-26 in Las Vegas, Nev.

The College Board is a not-for-profit organization that expands access to higher education. It was founded in 1900 and it has grown to 6,000 of the world’s leading educational institutions, including ECC.

Each year, the organization helps more than 7 million students prepare for a transition to college through programs, including the SAT and the Advanced Placement Program. The organization also serves its members through research and advocacy.

Under Anglin’s direction, the ECC Learning Center offers free tutoring in math, writing, science and many other subjects to students and community members. ECC students can make tutoring appointments or stop in for assistance. The center also contains over 40 computers for student use, study tables, a lounge area for relaxed study, private group study rooms and more.
