Whoa, We’re Halfway There!

When campus isn’t under a blanket of snow, it is a flurry of activity from construction crews who are busy renovating and building the future of Hindman through the Cornerstone Capital Campaign. In today’s update, I wanted to share some photos with you on the progress taking place on the Mike Mullins Cultural Heritage Center and the May Stone Gathering Place.

Walls are up and the roof is being installed on the Gathering Place. Soon guests will be able to enjoy picturesque views of Troublesome from numerous patios and porches!


The interior of the Gathering Place is progressing! This view is facing the Reading Room, which is being crowd funded through the Brier Assembly.


With insulation going up on the Mike Mullins Cultural Heritage Center, we are just days away from the installation of new exterior siding. This will completely transform the look and feel of campus!


Dry wall will be going up in a few short days in the future administrative office suite!

Crews are also providing a face lift to the Great Hall and the Dining Hall with new paint and by refinishing the original hardwood floors.

It’s hard to believe we are 50% through our campaign period of three years. While difficult to imagine, it is something else to look at the physical changes taking shape on our campus and to realize we are now counting down weeks, if not even days, until our new and renovated spaces are open for our use. This is the largest capital improvement at our school since the completion of the May Stone Building in 1961. We could not do it without the support and giving of so many, and that includes each of you. Thank you for your generosity and for your gift to the campaign!
