The educaational, inspirational, and entertaining programming at the Niswonger have made Van Wert (our home town) into a cultural center. What a blessing the facility is, and an ongoing responsibility for the Board of Trustees to uphold the high standards of excellence in all that the Niswonger provides.

"The Niswonger Performing Arts Center is a powerful asset for the community and our local schools.  The value of the Arts is immeasurable.  I am thrilled to see the education and cultural exposure the events in this facility have provided for  students and for surrounding community members through the NPAC's annual seasons, its use as a rental facility for businesses or individual patrons, and the opportunities available to local students for theatre, music, assemblies, and other worthwhile educational ventures.  The NPAC is in constant use; what a blessing for Van Wert County!"
