The Jackson College Heritage Center
History lives at Jackson College with the opening of the Jackson College Heritage Center at the W.J. Maher Campus!
Over the years, Jackson College students have interviewed more than 100 residents in Jackson, Lenawee and Hillsdale counties, collecting stories, photos and artifacts and compiling displays, videos, books and more. With the support of the Jackson College Foundation, these efforts will now be focused on the Center for Regional History.
With the generous support of donor Peggy Maher, Professor Diana Agy – who has guided students through the numerous projects – is now the Maher Endowed Chair for Regional History! Creation of an endowed chair will allow Professor Agy to continue to provide leadership to the program, providing operational support for the program and professional development for the chair. It also provides funding for community outreach and engagement.
