A historic home on the MSU-West Plains campus has been given new life. As KSMU's Jennifer Davidson reports, university officials will dedicate the major addition to the campus Friday.
The new building is Gohn Hall, a $2 million project that involved renovating and adding onto a historic home on the West Plains campus.
Gohn Hall will be the permanent place for the university’s Outreach Program in West Plains. The Outreach Program allows students to get a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in certain areas using interactive video classrooms and online courses, as well as traditional, face-to-face classes.
The project is named after the Gohn family: David Gohn is a longtime local banker in West Plains, and his sister, Virginia Gohn Sapp of St. Louis, is a retired public educator.
The siblings donated their family home, in addition to making a major gift to the university. Funds from the Springfield and West Plains campuses also contributed, according to a release from the university.
