Plaque Commemorating Morrill Act to be Dedicated on Ag Campus

One hundred fifty years ago, Vermont Representative Justin Morrill had a big idea that helped shape the future of Tennessee and the rest of the nation: He believed higher education should be available to everyone. A plaque commemorating the signing of the Morrill Act will be dedicated at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 3, outside the Ellington Plant Sciences building, as part of the Ag Day street fair.
