Moraine Valley Community College celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year. To learn more about and to re-live some of what those five decades have been like, the college has been collecting oral histories. Throughout the semester we will be highlighting these videos.
“It gave me the opportunity to be a part of something that was new and to build something from scratch.”
When Dr. Margaret Lehner first came to campus in 1969, the campus was hard to spot. She drove up and down the street seeing only houses. Luckily, someone flagged her down and directed her to her interview location. Since that initial introduction to Moraine Valley, she has served in many roles at the college. She began as a Professor of Communications and Literature, later becoming Dean of Liberal Arts and then Dean of Liberal Arts & Sciences. She went on to hold the position of Vice President of Academic Affairs and is now the Vice President of Institutional Advancement. Moraine Valley Community College provides something new everyday–new people to meet and new opportunities.
