Centennial History Panels rotate to new locations

Fort Hays State University's Centennial History Panels have changed locations for September and added two new locations -- the Hays Public Library, 1205 Main, and the Student Government Association offices in the Memorial Union on the campus.

Eight panels on display in the Public Library's gallery depict the history of the university's architecture. Four panels displayed in the SGA offices show scenes from track, baseball and softball.

On display at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, 3000 Sternberg Drive, are eight panels -- a five-panel set on winter sports at FHSU (basketball and wrestling), and a three-panel set on campus life at different periods during the university's 100-year history.

Five panels on exhibit at Commerce Bank, 718 Main St., portray highlights from the university's football, tennis and volleyball history.

At Midwest Energy Inc., 1330 Canterbury Road, eight panels cover the eight people who have led the university since its establishment, from Principal William S. Picken to President Edward H. Hammond.

Hays Regional Airport has four panels on teaching and classroom life on the campus during its history.

The panels stay in each location for approximately one month. The history panels were created by John Ross, director of FHSU's Forsyth Library, and other library staff to commemorate the university's Centennial.
