Portland Community College will honor former state Sen. Margaret Carter when it names the Cascade Campus Technology Education Building for her this month.
The building will be called the Senator Margaret Carter Technology Education Building. It’s the first time in PCC’s 50-year history that one of its buildings has been named for a woman.
A ceremony rechristening the building is planned from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21. The program in Cascade’s Moriarty Auditorium includes guest speakers such as U.S. Reps. Earl Blumenauer and Kurt Schrader; former Margaret Carter Skill Center student Tamiko Phillips (now attending the University of Nevada at Las Vegas on a scholarship); Oregon Historical Society Director Kerry Tymchuk; and Carter.
