Ceremonial Ground Breaking for Huntsman Hall Set for Aug. 26
By Ken Snyder
The ceremonial ground breaking for Huntsman Hall is now set for 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 26. You are invited to attend. In addition to you, we expect various dignitaries to be at this historic event, including Utah State University President Stan Albrecht.
We call it ceremonial because it probably won’t happen too far away from the large hole we are digging for the foundation of the building. That hole should be about 27-feet deep by that time. And yet all this very visible progress needs to be marked and time needs to be taken to recognize the many people who contributed, sacrificed, and worked make this new construction a reality. Just think, by attending this event you’ll have bragging rights years from now when you walk across campus and Huntsman Hall comes into view. You’ll be able to say, “I remember when there was nothing but a hole in the ground where that beautiful building now stands.”
P.S. Don’t forget you can see the excavation progress live by watching it on our Huntsman Hall webcams.
