SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (May 10, 2018) – The Illinois State Historical Society recently presented their annual awards to groups or organization that have furthered the collection, preservation, and/or interpretation of an aspect of Illinois history. Judging was done by an Awards Committee appointed by the President of the society, and presentation of awards took place at the Illinois State Historical Society Annual Awards Luncheon in the old State Capitol building in Springfield.
South Suburban College received a Certificate of Excellence for their entry, South Suburban College: 90-Year Anniversary Historic Wall Display. “The project provides its audience with both an immediate and long-lasting recognition for the significance of this milestone anniversary,” said the State Historical Society. “The timeline book and community activities were well-planned, thus ensuring the college’s anniversary was celebrated by past and future graduates. The college has a tradition of creating individual walls to display the history of the various towns they serve. How appropriate that the college dedicates a wall for their own story.”
The display features photos and memorabilia from the college’s 90-year history. South Suburban College hosted a dedication ceremony for the new College History Wall and Display on November 9, 2017, in the atrium of the College’s Main Campus.
