100 years of service

The Information Technology Center is turning 100 years old this year. Carved on the lintel: ‘Who Dares to Teach Must Never Cease to Learn’–an appropriate motto for a building whose programs over the last century have innovated teaching and learning. Opening as a model school facility for local elementary students and for preparing teachers, the building kept this purpose until 1986. Once the elementary school was moved off campus, the building gained a new life as the center for teaching technology and computer services.The exhibit includes a brief history of normal teacher training in Monmouth and the diverse uses of this prominent building during its lifetime.
