Last week marked a major milestone in the construction of a new Campus Center at Philander Smith College in Little Rock. A Topping Out ceremony was held to celebrate placement of the final steel beam atop the 15,700-square-foot structure. The state-of-the-art facility, which is scheduled for completion in August, will include a 300-seat dining hall, student union, bistro, and outdoor dining area. In a press release on the PSC website, Vice President for Fiscal Affairs Terry Wallace said, “Today’s event marks an important milestone in the construction phase of this exciting project. In just a few more months, we will add another jewel of a facility to our campus, one that we know will greatly enhance students’ college experience as they matriculate at Philander Smith College.”
Attendees, including students, staff, administrators, and Nabholz team members, signed the beam before it was lifted into place. Chairman Emeritus Charles Nabholz addressed the crowd, as did leaders from PSC, including President Johnny M. Moore, Ph.D.; Wallace; Board of Trustees member C.J. Duvall; and Rev. Ronnie Miller-Yow, PSC’s chaplain.
Many thanks to everyone who attended and to Philander Smith College for selecting Nabholz to construct the new Campus Center.
