Meet the Nursing Faculty
Sandy Summers, RN, MSN, NP - Director of Nursing
I am the director of the nursing program at Lamar Community College. Thank you for your interest in our school and in the profession of nursing.

I entered the health care profession as a respiratory care tech in 1986. Since that time, I have earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of New Mexico and a Master of Science Degree (Nurse Practitioner track) from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. While pursuing my education, I have worked in a variety of settings at multiple health care agencies. My current clinical practice focuses on primary care in ambulatory clinics. I believe that quality nursing education at multiple entry points is the key to solving the nursing shortage of today and at Lamar Community College the student educational experience is paramount. Again, congratulations on your first steps in your nursing career.

Kathy Henderson, RN, BSN - Nursing Instructor
I joined LCC’s Nursing Program as a full time faculty member in the Fall of 1995. I have taught in all areas of the program, and especially love teaching med/surg and OB. I enjoyed teaching a Nutrition class online through CCCOnline for three years but chose to drop that adventure to pursue a Master’s Degree.
I am “almost” a native to Southeastern Colorado having lived in Lamar since 1984. I moved here from Spokane, Washington. My two daughters consider Lamar to be home. I look forward to watching my daughters “grow up” and pursue their own dreams and goals.
I feel I am a real advocate for nursing education in Southeast Colorado and plan to work diligently to maintain excellence in nursing in this area.
Please feel free to stop by office to visit, or phone me.

Lon Wilcox , RN, MSN - Nursing Instructor
I was born and raised in Utah, and have taught nursing in Texas, Tennessee, and Georgia before coming to Lamar Community College.

I have practiced as an RN for nearly 20 years in a variety of settings. I have been a generalist through that time, never specializing in any one area. Being a male in nursing can be challenging as well as rewarding. I hope that I will be able to bring a different outlook to your nursing education experience here at LCC. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about a career in nursing or nursing education.
I have a BA in Mass Communications from Brigham Young University, an ADN from Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake, WA, and a BSN and MSN from the University of Phoenix. I am currently pursuing an Ed.D. from the University of Phoenix, so I know how hard it is being a student!

Mary Ann Turner, RN, BSN - Nursing Instructor
I entered the health care field approximately 15 years ago as a LPN and practiced for 3 years. I continued up the educational ladder and completed first my Associate Degree in Nursing and then my Bachelor’s in Nursing and currently in process of a Master’s Degree in Nursing.

I am a Southeastern Colorado native and love the open spaces and the fresh air. I have four children, seven horses and two dogs. I am also a sports fanatic and might mention that many years ago actually played on the Lamar Community College Women’s Basketball team.

I do earnestly believe in life-long learning and also am passionate about the profession of nursing. I am here to guide and support you in your pursuit of a nursing career. My door is always open
