Beam-Signing Ceremony Held For Luth Athletic Complex
WORCESTER, Mass. – A community beam-signing event was held on campus on Saturday, April 30, in front of the Hart Center at the Luth Athletic Complex. For this milestone, John E. Luth ’74 and Joanne Chouinard-Luth, D.M.D., were on campus to sign a beam that will be part of the final constructed facility. Last year, the Luths donated $32.5 million for the facility, the largest gift in College history.
Also taking part in the event were Rev. Philip Boroughs, S.J., president of the College; John Mahoney ’73, chair of the Board of Trustees; Trustee Anne Fink ’85, representing Pepsi Co., a proud partner of Holy Cross Athletics; Nathan Pine, Director of Athletics; and Maeve Westover, a sophomore member of the women’s swimming and diving team. The men’s basketball team, fresh from winning the Patriot League championship and competing in the NCAA Tournament, and the women’s ice hockey team, which won the NEHC Open title for the sixth time, were also part of the beam-signing ceremony.
The Luth Athletic Complex will be important to a significant percentage of the student body for many years to come, as one of every four Holy Cross students is a varsity athlete. In addition, numerous other students support athletics, participate in club and intramural sports and enjoy the College’s wellness and fitness facilities.
Also on Saturday morning, Holy Cross unveiled a new scoreboard and record board at the swimming pool in the Hart Center. These enhancements were made possible by donor Joseph Donelan ’72, with additional support from Margaret Hayden Bramley ’98, Hugh & Patricia Hayden P06, ’98, Sarah Lagosh ’99, Coleen Lynch ’95, Kathleen Mortimer ’85 and Jean Vining ’83.
