RSVP of Northwest Illinois presents anniversary quilt to HCC

FREEPORT — In celebration of Highland Community College’s 50th Anniversary and 40 years as sponsors for the RSVP of Northwest Illinois, a quilt was presented, to be hung in the Student Conference Center at Highland Community College.

The quilt top was designed and constructed by Mike Shore, RSVP director, and quilted by RSVP quilting volunteers. The traditional log cabin quilt is in the HCC school colors featuring the HCC logo in the center and reflects how the college founding members built the campus one step at a time.
