Ground breaking ceremonies for the Hughes Family Center on the Northwest campus was Thursday. The nearly $20 million dollar project is slated for completion in August of next year. The naming of the facility is after the Carl & Cheryl Hughes Family. Carl Hughes says he is amazed how the Maryville community supports the University.
Donors have committed 13 million to the project thus far and a portion of the City’s Transient Guest Tax will also contribute to the building. $600,000 is left to raise prior the opening of the facility next year.
