Lora Knaack

"I absolutely love my students. I have your traditional students right out of high school. Then I have your non-traditional students - they can have spouses, they can have families, they can be a single mother or a single father. They are hard-working and I do everything I can so they can be great nurses."

Lora Knaack, instructor, Western Iowa Tech Community College, Sioux City

Lora Knaack is committed to rural Iowa. She teaches nursing at WITCC and cares for the small herd of livestock on her family's farm. She could easily up her income by moving to a larger city, but she loves the public schools her sons attend, having family close by and the students who come to her community college classroom.
