Alfonso Ruiz isn't sure how his mother did it. As a single mother, she would see her three boys off to school, work as many as three jobs, have dinner on the table, oversee homework and see them off to bed. Then, as they drifted off to sleep, she would hit the books. “She was the little engine that could. She just managed to keep on going,” Ruiz said. Susan Ruiz, 55, of Hagerstown, stayed home with her four children when they were young. But when she divorced in 2000, she needed to find a way to support her family.

Over the centuries, the 18th-century log house being renovated on the Shepherd University campus has been a private home, a sorority house, a day-care center, a home-economics classroom, and, until last month, a storage unit. The university has spent about $68,000 on renovations so far. The one-and-a-half story frame house is believed to have been built between 1772 and 1793 by Femetghe and Clarkson Freeman. It's on East High Street between Snyder and Knutti halls. It's easily recognized by its peeling yellow paint.
