Falcon Spot Winner

Our Falcon Spot winner featured in November is Sophomore, Larissa Bond!

Major: Physical Therapy Assistant

Why did you choose SIC? 

I chose SIC because it’s very close to home and was able to continue to play softball. SIC has given me the opportunity to still be close to family and friends, and continue to play the sport that I love.

Are you involved in any SIC clubs or teams?

I have played softball at SIC for almost 2 years.

What will you miss most about SIC? 

I will for sure miss my financial aid and softball team. Emily, Michelle and Kylie are amazing people that I look up to and always will have a special place in my heart. They were my first bosses and I couldn’t have asked for any better bosses. Thank you so much for everything you guys have done for me. Coach Gines, Coach Melissa and my teammates will be truly missed, there was never a practice or game where I didn’t laugh, they will always have a special place in my heart, and people I can always count on to be there for me. Thank you Coach Gines, Melissa and my softball teammates for everything you guys have done for me and making my last season the best. 

What do you plan to do after SIC? 

I plan to attend Southern Illinois University Carbondale, hopefully to study to be a physical therapy assistant. I also hope to continue my student worker position in the financial aid office at SIUC in the scholarship department.  

What is your dream job? 

My dream job is to be a physical therapist assistant in Southern Illinois so that I can still be very close to home.


Congratulations to Larissa! 

Larrisa was nominated by SIC's Director of Financial Aid and Coordinator of Veterans Services, Emily Henson. 

“In addition to being a full-time student, Larissa is also a softball player and works in the Financial Aid Office as a student worker. Larissa is friendly, fun, easy-going and enjoys life. She works hard to balance school, softball, and work. We enjoy working with Larissa and will be very sad to see her go, but know that she will succeed no matter where she goes in life." 

Way to go, Larissa! We are delighted to have students like you representing Southeastern Illinois College!
