Centennial Campaign II

We continue our look this week at the Centennial Capital Campaign. In fact, this week is a little bit of a round up. The campaign has eight major goals, but as we saw last week, some of these goals are already in progress… or have been completed. We’ll look at the completed ones this week.

The first completed project is something we looked at quite extensively earlier: the renovations on the Craig Dining Hall. These renovations were significant, including a new roof, renovated bathrooms, reenforced beams for the ceiling, and new tempered glass for the windows. It is an impressive renovation for an already iconic building. The renovations were completed in 2019.

The second completed project is the new shotgun range. The range has been experienced a slow evolution since the early 1990s, but for this campaign it finally found a major benefactor in the Menefee family. The major building was done in 2018, but a new gateway and dedication was recently completed. The Albert Leo Menefee III Shotgun range was just dedicated August 27, 2020.

Follow the links for earlier posts on these parts of the campaign. The image below is of the new gateway to the Menefee Shotgun Range. Next week we look at what is still to come.
