Sept. 15, 2011—North Central College is participating in a McCormick Foundation-funded study to help the state determine new requirements for principal preparation programs at Illinois colleges and universities.

North Central’s inclusion as a recipient of grant funds from the McCormick Foundation is the latest example of how North Central College’s undergraduate and graduate degrees in education are among the most rigorous in the State of Illinois, says Kristine Servais, associate professor of education and coordinator of master of education programs at North Central.

1961 Illinois license plates honored North Central College

In 1961, Illinois license plates were red and white in honor of North Central College's centennial.

Before the state of Illinois began issuing multi-year license plates in 1979, motorists would receive a new set of plates each year. The plates were redesigned each year, and the colors for the letters and numbers and backgrounds would change.

Thanks to a blog post, today we're reminded that in 1961, Illinois motorists drove around with red-and-white license plates in honor of North Central College's Centennial.
