I attended the dedication of Barry Hall this afternoon. All of the big name politicians were there! The AgCountry Auditorium was overflowing with people at the ceremony. Thanks to John Barry and other Barry family members for the major contribution to make this facility become a reality. We also need to thank the many other major contributors to the project. Most of the classrooms have a name, such as the Gate City Bank classroom, etc. I think there is a towel dispenser somewhere in the building with my name on it. No money came from the State of North Dakota for this project.
All I can say is the building is sure the opposite of what Minard, South Engineering and the other buildings I took classes in are like.
If you haven't seen this building or the other two downtown buildings, I encourage you to do a walkthough some day.
