WSU-Education Village Meeting
The public has a chance to learn more about the Winona State University Education Village on Monday when a special meeting will be held.
University officials will make a presentation on the three buildings on Lafayette Street that are being converted into a new education center.
WSU Dean of Education, Terrill Portman, says not only will students get advanced training in teaching but the buildings are being repurposed to maintain the history of education as well.
Portman says there will also be an education museum and space for the community.
WSU has received a total of 31-million dollars in state funding for the project that will see the conversion of the former Cotter High School, Cotter Rec Center, and Cathedral grade school into high tech learning centers.
Monday's public meeting is at 5:30 p.m. in the Watkins Manor Great Hall.
