Tom Pridgeon, 2020

Tom was the newest member of the board, joining in 2020. Tom’s interest in history comes from a love of the social sciences. He was formerly Superintendent of Greenville Public Schools from 1990 to 1998 so the collaboration of the schools and the museum is of importance to him. Being retired gives Tom plenty of time to enjoy travel, reading and golf — and he hopes that MSU sports will once again be active! Tom says “The more I read and travel, the more I want to know.” We hope the more he learns about our history and museum, the more he’ll want to know. However, Tom recently moved to Charlotte, Michigan, so had to resign as a member of the board. We wish him well in his new surroundings!
