Meet Lena Verkuilen
DATE On April 06, 2021

Not all instructors are found in classrooms. As Library Coordinator, Lena Verkuilen is excited to assist students with their career goals. We are happy to have her as part of the Rockford Career College family.

For over 20 years, Lena has been proud to be in the education field. Besides managing libraries, she has worked with nature centers, led after school programs, and helped others build rockets. Lena enjoys hands-on and interactive learning as well as giving students the confidence to overcome challenges. Always willing to lend a helping hand, Lena loves seeing others progress in their career journeys.

Lena has spent her entire life in the Rockford area. She and her husband share a love for the great outdoors and look forward to camping in their homemade teardrop camper. Lena's other hobbies include crafting, cooking, gardening, and baking.

Currently, the library/resource room hours are as follows:

Mondays and Wednesdays: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Tuesdays and Thursdays: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm

Fridays: 8:00 am to noon

Stop by and say hello to Lena. She looks forward to meeting you!
