Welcome to the second edition of the Kishwaukee College Foundation (KCF) newsletter. During the month of May, the College celebrated the 51st Commencement ceremony where we had a record number of students complete degrees or certificates, with 320 students participating between the two ceremonies. Good things are continuing to happen at Kishwaukee College as more and more students are achieving their goals and completing programs and certificates, which for many, would not be possible without the support of the Foundation.
Thank You to Our Outgoing Board Members
