Lana Tanner

Dana is the recording officer and vice president of service for the center’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter.  Lana likes to draw and drew the artwork on a flyer for the center’s Cruisin’ Christmas event.  Both young women are undecided about their majors.

“I lean more toward English and physical therapy while Lana is more about English and the arts,” said Dana.  “I like to run while my sister is more into art and all that entails.”

Dana regularly runs in 5K and 10K races.  She has won 50 medals this year. “Running allows me to get away from myself and all my worries.  I also really like the competition.”

Lana (pronounced LAY-na) is quieter and more introspective, spending much of her time doodling in her sketch pad.  She is more of a watcher than a doer.  “I like to take in my environment, really notice what’s going on around me.  Usually what I see becomes part of my art in some way.”

One thing they both agree on is their time at the George County Center.

“It’s been a great experience,” Lana said.  “Our instructors are just outstanding, and the center is really like a big family.  It has been a lot of fun. I am looking forward to graduating this year, but also sad about leaving GCC. We really love the people here.”
