Rend Lake College names music rooms for donors


Some rooms at Rend Lake College are getting new names after a fund-raising project that raised double its goal.

The Board of Trustees approved naming the college’s music rooms after several donors to the music program. The Rend Lake College Foundation has spearheaded an effort to raise $50,000 for the music program, and naming opportunities were a big part of the plan.

The new room names are:

  • Henry Leeck & Cindy Leeck Practice Room
  • Hunt Bonan Classroom
  • Mary B. Pericolosi Practice Room
  • Mary Ellen & John D. Aiken Classroom
  • Rubenacker Family Practice Room
  • Spears Practice Suite
  • Sweeten Corridor

Through the campaign, supporters were asked to meet a number of needs in the music program, including remodeling the practice rooms, upgrading music rooms, providing scholarship funding, and purchasing equipment like risers, lockers and a library system.

The campaign ultimately raised more than $100,000.
