Prairie State College celebrated its 25th anniversary of becoming a two year Junior College in 1983. Since it started teaching classes in the basement of a Church in Chicago Heights, the College made a huge impact on the economic and social development of the communities it serves over the years. Former History Professor and first Archivist of Prairie State College, Dr. Richard Sherman expresses the challenges and successes the College experienced in his book titled “Prairie State College in its first quarter century 1957-1982: A Community College History” published in 1992.
