FOR RELEASE: Oct. 7, 2011
The University of New Mexico-Gallup will host a dedication of its new Student Services and Technology Center on Friday, October 21, at 2 p.m. in front of the building.
“We’re thrilled with this beautiful addition to the campus,” said Sylvia Andrew, executive director of UNMG. “The design is impressive, and unlike anything we’ve seen in Gallup till now. The fact that we are LEED certified and therefore adhering to sound environmental building principles only adds to the appeal of the structure. Additionally, the technology in the classrooms is state of the art and will greatly enhance the way we deliver instruction.”
Officials from UNM-Gallup, the University of New Mexico, Rohde May Keller McNamara architectural design, contractor Flintco of Tulsa, the Navajo Nation, the Pueblo of Zuni, the city, the county, and other friends of UNMG will be on hand for the brief ceremony and tours of the new building. The public is invited.
“We are grateful that the voters of this area approved the bond money to help us meet the needs of our students through this project,” Andrew said. “We hope the entire community will join us in celebrating the dedication of this stunning new facility.”
