From the press release:

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Air travelers who would like to enroll in TSA’s popular expedited-screening program can do so at Savoy’s Willard Airport from 10:00 A.M. to 7 P.M. on April 25 to May 6. TSAPre✓® allows passengers to proceed quickly through airport security at 167 U.S. airports without removing footwear or presenting for inspection small containers of liquid, laptops, light outerwear or belts.

“It can be quite a hassle to enroll in this program at a distant location or at a busy airport,” said Gene Cossey, Willard Airport Executive Director. “Now, this limited time event can let travelers make an appointment and apply closer to home, rather than driving considerable distances and waiting in long lines.”
