Through the 100-year history of the Institution, mission statements have remained remarkably consistent as well as adaptive to the times.

Two examples of early mission statements follow:

1918

“To give industrial, moral, and intellectual education, Christian, but non-sectarian; to serve as a social center in an isolated, intensely rural neighborhood; to further by teaching and by the wise use of its own 390 acres of land, the agricultural and economic development of the country.” [Source: 1918 – PMSS Catalog]

In the 1920 statement, the only change is in the acreage of the institution from 390 acres to 450 acres of land.

1920

 “To give industrial, moral, and intellectual education, Christian, but non-sectarian; to serve as a social center in an isolated, intensely rural neighborhood; to further by teaching and by the wise use of its own 450 acres of land, the agricultural and economic development of the country.” [ Source: 1920 PMSS Catalog
