Tarkio, Missouri and Blair, Nebraska...sharing a common bond after colleges close

"Tarkio and Dana: 2 closed colleges," reflects excellent reporting by Katie Rohman, Managing Editor of the Washington County Pilot-Tribune & Enterprise in Blair, Nebraska as she contrasts the situation facing her community with the closing of Dana College and that of Tarkio, Missouri, after Tarkio College closed in 1992.

Rohman traveled to Tarkio for interviews with alumni and supporters.  Her article includes extensive comments from Robert Hughes who is serving as president of Tarkio College and leads an effort to reopen the institution.
