Ribbon-cutting Officially Opens New Hogan Center
Building tours, speeches, a ribbon-cutting and gorgeous weather highlighted the Hogan Center Grand Opening and Dedication Ceremony at Alma College Friday, Oct. 8.
The $10.2 million project, completed in August, includes renovations to locker rooms, the swimming pool, coaches offices and athletic training space, plus the construction of the Art Smith Arena.
"You are in the big leagues now," said Jim Hogan, who returned to campus from his home in Virginia to participate in the ceremony. The Hogan Center was originally named in honor of his parents, Romain G. and Helen Kempf Hogan.
Trustee Candace Dugan opens the ceremony. Speakers included (from left) Chaplain Carol Gregg, Orchard Lake junior and student-athlete Shelby Gray, Trustee Greg Hatcher, Jim Hogan and President Jeff Abernathy.
