True to the college’s motto – “In a world focused on things, we focus first on people”– the groundbreaking event today focused more on donors, the legacy of past leadership, students and faculty than on the future $4.4 million addition to Justin Hall.

“Today’s celebration is possible because of the vision of Human Ecology faculty members, students, K-State administrators, loyal alumni and friends, and generous benefactors,” said Dean Virginia Moxley.

She announced that PGAV Architects of Westwood has been selected as architects for the 15,000 square foot addition.

She invited donors and guests to pick up golden shovels decorated with purple bows and dig in as Willie the Wildcat lead a shout out for the college. Manning shovels were President Kirk Schulz, Provost April Mason, Dean Moxley, Dean Emeritus Carol Kellett, Dean Emeritus Barbara Stowe, Alumna Judy Mai Millen, Kristin Van Scoy who is president of the alumni board, Kelsie Ball who is president of the college student council and donors Mary and Carol Ice, Amy Chu and John McKay.

Following the ceremonies, nearly 400 ate cake the celebrate Justin Hall’s 50th birthday.
