I am so proud to be a part of such a great asset to the community. We are more than
offsite building with classes, we are a living example of what makes the Illinois
Valley a great
place to be. Ottawa Center originated as Dr. Corcoran's response to our community's
we have continued to evolve and meet those needs since 2010."
