Morehead State University invited the community to an inside preview and official naming to Wayne D. and Susan H. Andrews Hall on Friday, Sept. 30.

The Wayne D. and Susan H. Andrews Hall Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held at 1:30 pm, with tours beginning at 1pm, faculty and the community gathered inside of the lobby as MSU representatives spoke about Andrews’ impact during his 12 years and the continue construction of the brand new living facility.

“The common theme during President Andrews’ time at Morehead State has been to plan the work and work the plan,” said Paul C. Goodpaster, Board of Regents chair member. “The results of careful and prudent planning have yielding a clear focus on the direction that the university is headed and that is to become the best regional university in the south.”

Goodpaster spoke about the various accomplishments that Andrews has had during his time at MSU. Some are: the development of the Craft Academy for Science and Mathematics, the creation of MSU Teach, the construction of three “state of the art” education buildings (Center for Health Education and Research, Equine Health Education Center and the Space Science Center), refreshed six resident halls, created the national recognized Recreation and Wellness center and much more.  

“I want to be absolutely clear about one thing, though the plague has our names on it and we’re deeply honored by that, none of this that we’ve accomplished in 12 years could have happened without the team; none of it,” said Dr. Wayne Andrews. “We’re humbled to receive this. We’re delighted that our name is here, but I want to acknowledge the good work of all the people that blew wind under our wings.”

The event ended with hugs and smiles as a group of special guests and dignitaries joined the Andrews in the official cutting of the ribbon. Andrews Hall has a tentative move in date for Oct. 17.
