#NewRec Celebrations

by Mary McGhan


SUMMARY: This past weekend JMU's University Recreation Center celebrated its 20th anniversary with a grand reopening of the newly renovated recreation center.

President Emeritus Linwood Rose; President Jonathan Alger; UREC Director Eric Nickel; Associate Vice President of Multicultural Awareness and Student Health Marsha Mays-Bernard; and Senior Vice President of Student Affairs Mark Warner cut the opening ribbon for new UREC.
Erin Huntley, representing the class of '96, presented a $61,800 UREC student employee scholarship fund. UREC opened in 1996, and the alumni involved played a special role in UREC's inaugural year and are proud to support how it has evolved. 


Thank you for all of the hard work of the UREC student and professional staff!
