Join the Prairielands Council on Thursday, May 7, as we celebrate the contributions of former University of Illinois men's basketball coach Lou Henson at our first Distinguished Citizen event.
Henson, 83, coached at Illinois for 21 seasons in a college coaching career spanning five decades. He is one of the 20 winningest Division I coaches of all time and one of only four coaches to record 200 or more wins at two different institutions.
We are pleased to be able to honor a man who has contributed so much to our region.
