Malley, who also was named the 2022 Distinguished Alumnus, completed his general studies at Moraine Valley before earning a bachelor’s degree in global music studies from DePaul University. He is the executive director of Intercultural Music Production, a cultural arts organization that collaborates with schools and organizations to promote a global community through performance and education. He has had a prolific career, culminating in his experience as an actor, musician and Arabic dialect coach for the Broadway show “The Band’s Visit,” which won 10 Tony Awards and a Grammy. His film and theater credits are extensive, and he has traveled across the globe with numerous musical groups.

Vorderer was elected village president of Oak Lawn in April 2021 and will serve a four-year term. Becoming Oak Lawn’s mayor extends a life of service, which began when Vorderer served in the U.S. Army in Viet Nam. After the war, he worked for the Oak Lawn Police Department for 34 years, ending his law enforcement career as the chief of patrol. After retiring from the police department, Vorderer served on the Oak Lawn Park District board and as a village trustee before running for mayor. He was president of the Northern Illinois Chapter of the Disabled American Veterans and has been a longtime member of the Oak Lawn VFW, American Legion and Elks Lodge.

“We were happy we could hold the induction ceremony again. Last year, we accepted nominations. However, since we could not hold an in-person event due to COVID-19, we decided to wait so we could properly recognize our prestigious inductees,” said Friend Mehallick.
