SALEM (AP) — Carla Mundt has a passion for education and an appreciation for its roots, especially when it comes to historic Criterion Schoolhouse, which came to the fairgrounds from Wasco County. The 40-year-old roof on the building began to fail last year and was in danger of not surviving another winter until the OREA and key allies launched a “Save the Criterion Schoolhouse” campaign in May.
