South Suburban College Seeks Memorabilia Donations for Historic Display

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – To celebrate the 90th Anniversary of South Suburban College (1927-2017), we are creating a college historic wall and display case for the main campus atrium that will commemorate our school from its beginnings as Thornton Community College in the 1920s to the institution we know today.

We are asking for your help to make this happen by donating college memorabilia for our display case such as pennants, diplomas, graduation programs, buttons, photos, college branded clothing, advertising and more. Your artifact must be in good and stable physical condition and not already overrepresented (for example, we will only use one yearbook). All donations will become the property of South Suburban College. Due to space limitations, we cannot accept all articles.

If you have a college-related item from Thornton Junior College, Thornton Community College or South Suburban College that you would be willing to donate for our display case, please email Debbie Lamoureux at If available, please attach a photo. Or phone (708) 596-2000, ext. 2203. Thank you for your help with this project. Working together we can honor the institution that has made its place in the community and enriched the lives of so many.
