FAME:  Faculty Academy Master Educators

FAME instructors are a group of unique faculty who are hand-selected to teach Lawson State's freshmen students.  This cadre of highly dedicated faculty serve in all capacities of the college from Students Services to Career Technical to College Transfer.  Equally important, these faculty members volunteer and go through an extensive training series that runs a full year before they are graduate from the FAME program.  From there, they enter the freshman orientation (ORI101) classes to deliver an unforgettable experience for LSCC freshman students.
