Early Learning Community

Early Learning Community

Look what children in the Pacific University Early Learning Community (ELC) are building! These new life-sized blocks, purchased with a gift from Margaret Thompson in honor of her husband, Tommy Thompson ’38, are letting the preschoolers and kindergartners in the ELC build new worlds. Thompson also has funded two endowed scholarships and an endowed professorship. Her son, Roger Thompson is a 1967 alumnus, and her great-grandson is a student in the ELC.
