Legacy from Penny McKee Ireland

On July 28, 2017, the Montgomery Museum became a grateful recipient of a generous donation from the Montgomery County Retired Teachers. The gift was made possible by a legacy from Penny McKee Ireland (1950-2015). Mrs. Ireland was a native of Christiansburg and she taught language arts and social studies at Christiansburg Middle School  for 30 years. Her dedication to education and learning are well remembered in Christiansburg and the museum is honored to be part of her legacy.
