Recognizing a current faculty member for making a difference in their students’ lives.

Stacy Lotz

Art professor Dr. Stacy Lotz has finally gotten her hands on her very own Scotsman statue. She is an alumna of Carl Sandberg College, Eastern Illinois University, and Washington University. Brought to Monmouth College by Cheryl Meeker, Lotz has served as the board president of the Galesburg Civic Art Center where she has secured grant funding through the National Endowment of the Arts for arts programming for youth serving in juvenile detention centers.  

In her own words:

“My whole life, I’ve been a student,” she said. “Everyone’s always showing me a new path. I feel very fortunate to have had such great mentors. Now, I think of my students as my teachers. They’re the ones that are influencing me now.”
