The Division of Student Affairs held their Steve and Sandi Adams Legacy Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday, April 12. This annual event celebrates alumni with a passion for making a difference and a commitment to excellence.
The Legacy Hall of Fame is named in honor of Vice President emeritus Steve Adams and former first lady of the Division Sandi Adams for their many years of combined service and commitment to Illinois State University.
