• The new classroom building on the Three Rivers College campus in Poplar Bluff has acquired a new name, thanks to a donation accepted recently by the college’s Board of Trustees. Naming rights to the new “Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center” were secured by the Robert W. Plaster Foundation, a charitable organization in Lebanon, Mo., in exchange for a significant seven-figure donation to be used toward the cost of the building. The donation also makes the building the new home of Three Rivers’ business programs, as part of the Plaster Foundation’s emphasis on business, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship education. “We’re extremely pleased to partner with the Plaster Foundation to create the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center,” said Dr. Wesley
