LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) welcomes new Nursing Professor, Cathy Kubec  of Sanbornton to the College's faculty. Kubec will begin teaching on Monday, August 31, the start of LRCC's Fall Semester.

Kubec is also an experienced psychiatric nurse and holds American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) board certification in that specialty.

"I am very excited and can't wait to start the new semester," says Kubec enthusiastically. "LRCC's nursing facilities are excellent."
