Mayor George Pradel is receiving a special honor at this year’s North Central College commencement ceremony.
The college will present the mayor with an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree during graduation on Saturday, June 8.
Pradel is a former police officer of 29 years, earning him the nickname officer friendly, and is known both for making a public appearance practically everywhere and his love of Naperville.
He was first elected in 1995 and has since been re-elected four times in a row, making him the city’s longest-running mayor.
Dr. Frannie Leautier, the Executive Secretary of the African Capacity Building Foundation will deliver North Central College’s commencement address.
