History of Student Newspapers

L-P-O Junior College and IVCC

The IV LEADER, like the college itself, has a long, distinguished history. The earliest student newspaper at IVCCs predecessor, LaSalle-Peru-Oglesby Junior College, was founded in 1933, nine years after the first students entered L-P-O. The junior college shared facilities with LaSalle-Peru High School, and occasionally student newspapers, from 1924 through 1967 when local voters approved the formation of Illinois Valley Community College, and a separate campus was built at its present location.
