Alumnus of the Last Decade Award
Our Alumnus of the Last Decade Award is a way to recognize and honor an outstanding ICC Alumnus who has completed 30 credit hours or a certificate or degree at ICC within the last decade. Recipients have demonstrated achievements in his/her career field, committed to improving education in the ICC district, or outstanding service to our community.
Meet the 2022 Winner – Markie Maloof
Markie attended Illinois Central College from 2010 to 2012, and is now an Organizational Development Advisor for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Markie’s commitment to St. Jude can be traced back to her grandfather, former Peoria Mayor Jim Maloof, who co-founded the first-ever St. Jude affiliate outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Markie and her sister Micheline “Michy” (2018 Alumnus of the Last Decade), also wrote and recorded a song “Changing the Face of Beauty” advocating for the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in media. Other past winners of the Alumnus of the Last Decade award include Brent Baker and Christine Bare-Kemper.
