Captain’s Log: Luter Hall has now been christened and set sail for her maiden voyage
On October 1st, the CNU Marching Captains ushered in guests for the grand opening ceremony of Joseph W Luter III Hall. Faculty and staff, as well as alumni from the PCSE department were invited to attend; along with friends from NASA, Jefferson Lab, Northrop Grumman, Swisslog, Newport News Shipbuilding and other companies.
Several distinguished members of the Newport News community were asked to speak at the ceremony, including Delegate Chris Jones, Larry Pope, President and CEO of Smithfield Foods and Mr. Joseph W. Luter III, Chairman of Smithfield Foods and benefactor of CNU. Last of all, our own President Trible offered a few words welcoming everyone to the newest $55 million, 135,000-square-foot building, home to many different departments and majors.
After the ceremony, guests were offered refreshments and a chance to tour the facility with members of PCSE staff. Safe to say we “wowed” them all!
