A dedication service for the Donnan Administration Building Elevator was held on November 6, 1998. A cast bronze plaque is being designed for permanent display at the lower entrance to the elevator. Dr. Jimmy Epting stated in his dedication comments, “We are proud that our students realized the need for this elevator and through the Resident Assistant Association and Student Alumni Council, these students raised in excess of $15,000 with different fund raising projects. This $15,000 along with the budgeted dollars for this project helped to accelerate the completion process.”
Also recognized for their support of this project were Thomas C. “Nap” Vandiver of Carolina First Bank and Buddy Waters of Cunningham Waters Construction.
An announcement was made at this dedication that The Resident Assistant Association and the Student Alumni Council have adopted as their next fundraiser, a Student Wellness Center. This facility will provide treadmills, stair steppers, exercise bicycles and other up-to-date equipment for student use. A location for this facility has not been named, but fund raising efforts will begin soon to provide the necessary funds to purchase the equipment needed.
