As part of Waubonsee Community College’s ongoing celebration of its 50th anniversary, the college hosted a March 9 reunion that drew more than 200 former and current students, faculty, staff and community members to the college's Sugar Grove Campus.

The event featured historical artifacts of the college, as well as a live choral performance of "Where Hope is Found," a piece specially commissioned for the occasion by Mr. Paul Carey and Dr. Mark Lathan, Assistant Professor of Music.
