By Ann Wickett
 
The date July 8 has been proclaimed by Governor Pete Ricketts as One Room Schoolhouse Day in Nebraska. Sara Crook, a professor of History and Political Science at Peru State College kicked off the One Room School Conference held at Peru State College on July 8 with a presentation on “It all Started Here.” Peru State College was Nebraska’s first Teachers College. However, at that time, it was considered as a normal college. Daniel Dailey one questioned what a normal school was, but he said that if it had anything to do with education he was all for it.

In 1921, Peru State Normal College was changed to Peru State Teachers’ College and later became known as Peru State College.
