Southwestern Illinois College has been chosen to receive the Governor's Award for Excellence in Education.

The award highlights the work of Illinois colleges and universities which provide services that make it possible for veterans to get their education and make the transition from military service to the private sector.

A different college or university in the state is honored each semester.

Erica Borggren, Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs, will present the award for the spring semester of 2013 award to SWIC President Georgia Costello at 2 p.m. Friday. The presentation will take place in the second floor conference room of the Liberal Arts Building on the school's Belleville Campus at 2500 Carlyle Avenue.
