Robert N. Thompson Building

The Robert N. Thompson Building was completed in the summer of 1980. This facility provided space for classrooms and administrative offices, and initially housed the Aviation and Business divisions.

The RNT Building, as it would come to be called, was named for Bob Thompson, who served the school in many capacities - including Board member, administrator, and instructor in political science – over the course of three decades.
