Mike Vondruska, who earned his bachelor’s degree from Western in 1978, is the founder of the Illinois Juggling Institute in Bolingbrook, according to an article in “The Joliet Herald-News” by Denise Baran-Unland.

Baran-Unland’s piece notes: “[The] llinois Juggling Institute offers motivational assembly programs, student participation workshops, entertaining performances and juggling supplies for beginners.”

Baran-Unland writes: “The [juggling] skill amused Vondruska for awhile, then he forgot about it until he was a sophomore college student at Western Illinois University in Macomb. Another student was teaching a community course at the school on juggling. Vondruska, intrigued, took the class, befriended the teacher, and later became the class’s teacher.”
