Ten nursing students at Kishwaukee College were the recipients of Littmann Stethoscopes from the Community Support Group at 3M in DeKalb. Jonathan Klaczek and Stephanie Whaley from the 3M Community Support Group were on campus on Sept. 4 to award the stethoscopes to the students.
The nursing students who received Littmann stethoscopes are: Jonah Anderson, Chana; Amber Boyd, DeKalb; Raven Brewer, Oregon; Demeya Gillespie, Rochelle; Madeline James, Stillman Valley; Vivienne Ketchakeu, Rochelle; Lakeia Knight, Loves Park; Courtney Lange, DeKalb; Kyesha Means, DeKalb; and Bibiana Milan, Rochelle.
The Community Support Group is the local arm of 3M that provides charitable assistance and support. Although the national 3M Corp. provides recognizable support in a variety of ways, including scholarships to Kishwaukee College and other educational institutions across the country, the Community Support Group is designed to be community-specific by volunteering, assisting and donating in ways that are unique to the local community.
Since 2010, the 3M Community Support Group in DeKalb has been awarding Littman stethoscopes to deserving Kishwaukee College nursing students each semester. The Littmann Stethoscope is manufactured by 3M and is considered the “Cadillac” of stethoscopes.
