We are sad to share that FDLTCC President, Stephanie Hammitt, passed away on Monday, November 14, 2022.  President Hammitt loved this unique and special college. She was especially proud of the students at FDLTCC, along with the support and guidance that provided by the staff and faculty. We are proud of the many important college accomplishments that were achieved under her leadership, and she will be missed tremendously. Our thoughts are with the Hammitt family as we mourn the untimely passing of our great leader, colleague, and friend.

Arrangements for President Hammitt’s Visitation and Mass of Christian Burial are available at https://www.nelsonfuneralcare.net/obituary/stephanie-hammitt. The FDLTCC campus will be closed on Friday, November 18, to give the FDLTCC community the opportunity to attend the Mass of Christian Burial.

A Celebration of Life is being planned at FDLTCC, more information will be shared in the coming weeks.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.
