Pierpont Community & Technical College is remembering former President Blair Montgomery after he passed away on Friday, June 23, 2023.  

Montgomery was selected as the first president of Pierpont Community & Technical College in 2004, a position he held for six years before retiring in 2010 after 36 years of combined service to Pierpont Community & Technical College and Fairmont State College [University].

Montgomery was passionate about many things, especially education. Along with being a leader for Pierpont and Fairmont State, Montgomery served on the Marion County Board of Education, the Marion County Public Library, and RESA 7.

Monty, Pierpont Community & Technical College’s mascot, is affectionately named in honor of Montgomery and his contributions to the institution. 

Montgomery’s leadership and compassion will long be remembered by the campus and community.

The celebration of Montgomery’s life will be held later this summer at a commemorative event at Pierpont Community & Technical College.
