True Sherman 

DMACC in the '60s - This classroom was in DMACC's very first location. This space was a grocery store before we inhabited it, and today is home of the Iowa Christian Academy. The instructor of this class was True Sherman. True is 96-years-old today, and was recently in attendance as we unveiled a plaque at this location to commemorate our beginning.
