Lincoln and Powell-Norton Halls were completed in 1951. Powell-Norton was renamed in April 2022 to honor Zella Powell and Ona Norton. Zella Powell is believed to be EIU's first Black graduate, earning a degree from Eastern State Normal School in 1910. Ona Norton was the matriarch of a cherished Black family in Charleston, IL. in the 1950' s, in a time when it was difficult for students of color to find off-campus housing in Charleston.
