Excerpt:

Peru’s first students planted trees around a single school building with a tarpaper roof. Today stands the Campus of a Thousand Oaks. Just down the road, satellite-guided tractors till Missouri River bottomland where teams of horses once pulled plows. Countless changes have occurred over 150 years. But in 2017, as in 1867, a beacon of learning shines brightly on a hilltop in Peru. Dan Sullivan, Author, Nebraska’s First College: Shaping the Future Since 1867
