Motlow Hosts Ingram Administration Opening Ceremony
November 14, 2011
Motlow College will host an official opening ceremony for the newly renovated Ingram Administration Building on the Moore County campus. The public is invited to tour the facility Sunday, Nov. 20, from 1 - 3 p.m. Refreshments will be served and the formal ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m.
The Ingram Administration building was one of the first five buildings built when Motlow opened in 1969. It was named in honor of Dr. Sam H. Ingram, the first president of the College. Dr. Ingram had been the Dean of the School of Education at Middle Tennessee State University and was appointed as the first president of Motlow by the Tennessee Board of Regents.
To officially begin operations at Motlow, Dr. Ingram moved the administrative staff into the building in August of 1969 and the college officially opened one month later. Dr. MaryLou Apple, current president of Motlow, said, "Dr. Ingram has always been a visionary for higher education and was a tremendous leader at Motlow."
Ingram Administration was closed for over a year to complete the first major renovation since it was built. The interior of the building was redesigned to more efficiently house the business office, human resources department and offices of the senior staff of Motlow College.
