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. Each week this semester we will highlight one of the videos.
This week we hear from the Mayor of Palos Hill, Jerry Bennett. Having held office for 35 years he has seen amazing transformations at the college. The architecture and landscaping have made the college a showpiece for the city and for the area. Because of the academic reputation of the college and its commitment to the surrounding community, providing amazing opportunities for the south suburban area, Palos Hills is proud to be home to Moraine Valley Community College.
To enjoy more of these oral histories, along with historic photos and documents, visit the MVCC College Archives.
