The opening program featured remarks from the guest of honor, time-lapse video of the facility’s construction, and the playing of the Alma Mater on the electronic Haynes Carillon. Attendees proceeded to the lobby afterward to watch the unveiling of a plaque and bronze bust of Jamrich and a ribbon-cutting with Erickson, former President Jamrich and Haynes, and other local dignitaries.
