“I loved PCC, it was my favorite year of college,” said Kimberly Brown, who attended Pratt Community College during the 2006-2007 school year.

Brown, who grew up in Pratt, said she originally attended PCC because she could get her general education classes out of the way while still living at home but saw many benefits later in life.

“The class sizes and availability of the teachers was wonderful,” she said. “I later saw how my decision to go to PCC made my foundation stronger than that of my peers.”

When most students think about enrolling for their college classes they don’t picture it happening in a hospital with their adviser lying in the hospital bed but this was just one of the many things that Pratt Community College ag instructor Lori Montgomery did while battling with cancer.

In August of 2005, Montgomery was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which is a cancer originating from white blood cells called lymphocytes. While she battling cancer for five years, Montgomery continued to work and be as active as possible.
