Family and friends created the Elden A. Lichty Scholarship fund at the time of Dr. Lichty's death on September 17, 1987. Dr. Lichty came to ISU as a principal of Thomas Metcalf Laboratory School in 1945. Two years later, he became a member of the Department of Education at ISNU. He was one of seven members on a national committee on the junior college level which drew up the model plan for Illinois prior to 1965. The plan served as a model for junior college legislation in many other states across the U.S.
