Following are Rep. Hultgren’s prepared remarks:

I rise today to honor Waubonsee Community College which is celebrating 50 years of service to northern Illinois.

Founded in August 1966, it was named after a Native American Chief whose name means “early dawn,” and provides innovative education to its students.

Offering career programs, business training, and professional learning, the college has stayed true to its mission of fostering a literate democratic society through accessible, quality, and innovative institutions.

This month, Waubonsee will re-open its Aurora Fox Valley Campus dedicated to health programs.

Critical to Waubonsee’s success is President Dr. Christine Sobek.

As a member of my Higher Education Advisory Committee, she regularly provides me with advice and wisdom on the needs of community colleges, and guidance on improving education policy at the federal level.

I am grateful for her friendship and leadership in offering students high-quality education.

Congratulations Waubonsee on your 50th anniversary.

Your hard work helps our community’s students succeed!
