Kennedy Center dedication this Friday

April 29, 2007

Kennedy Center Kennedy Center, the new south-wing addition to Si Melby Hall, will have its official dedication this Friday, May 4 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. with a program at 6:30.

The three-story Kennedy Center features the new wrestling training facility, increased classroom space, expanded locker-room facilities and expanded fitness facilities, as well as hospitality, meeting-room and office space.

For the project, the college received a $2 million gift from Fridley natives Dean Kennedy '75, and his wife Terry, and a $1 million gift from National Wrestling Hall of Fame member and Minnesota native Alan Rice (in memory of his wife Gloria), along with many other gifts from Augsburg supporters.

The project is the latest in several major improvements on campus. Adjacent to the Kennedy Center is the new air-supported dome over Edor Nelson Field, installed for the first time this year.
