Rep. Robert Pritchard receives KC John C. Roberts Award


Kishwaukee College named Robert Pritchard, Illinois State Representative for the 70th District, as the recipient of the 2018 John C. Roberts Community Service Award. The Award was given to Pritchard during the College’s 50th Annual Spring Commencement Exercise on Saturday, May 19. The John C. Roberts Community Service Award was established in 2009 to recognize the importance of community members in the success of Kishwaukee College. After receiving his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Communication from the University of Illinois, Pritchard had a successful career in communications, marketing and public relations. In 2003, Pritchard was elected Illinois State Representative for the 70th District and since then, has worked to support and advance higher education. Pritchard’s career embodies the same selfless dedication to the residents of the Kishwaukee College district and the support of education that inspired John Roberts when he worked to establish Kishwaukee College in 1968. Presenting the award to Pritchard, center, are Dr. Laurie Borowicz, President, Kishwaukee College and Bob Johnson, Board of Trustees Chair, Kishwaukee College. (Photo contributed)
