Hofl of Marlinton and Elton of War- The State College System Board of Directors, meeting in Charleston yesterday, approved plans to finance renovation of Greenbrier Hall as the new home of Blue field State College's Greenbrier Community College Center. The Directors were per- suaded by Dr. Robert E. Moore's presentation to further assist the project by revising the pay- ment schedule for the College System's $1.375 million dollar contribution. Moore, BSC President, asked the Board to pay the entire $1.375 million up front for the renovation, rather than to pay it to Greenbrier County Commis- sion in $16,250 per month rental payments over five years. The Board approved, releasing the entire $1.375 million as soon as the language of the original lease agreement could be revised. The College System Board of Directors then voted final ap- proval, giving the green light for renton, VA; daughters, Glennathe renovation. State College Bonnell of White Sulphur System Chancellor Clifford Springs and Olive Graham of Trump was authorized by the Board to sign legal documents Lewisburg; half-sister, Flossle Lonon and half-brother, Elva Perkins, both of Marion, NC; eight grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. Services were held in the First Baptist Church of Hun- tersville at 2 p.m. with Rev. on its behalf and deal with Blue- field State College and Green- brier Community College Foun- dation, Inc., to finalize plans for Greenbrier Hall's renovation. Attending the State College System Board of Directors meet- ing to answer questions and support the project were Dr.' Kyle Fort, president of Green- brier Community College Foun- dation, Inc.; John Bowling, president, Greenbrier County Commission; and Dr. James E. Cox, Jr., executive dean of Blue- field State College's Greenbrier Community College Center. The Greenbrier County Com- mission pledged rental income from the Activities Building to- ward debt retirement for renova- tion costs. The Greenbrler County Commission owns the former Greenbrier College build- ings and campus. "We were expecting a heated discussion, but found almost every person on the Board in fa- vor of this project," Bowling said. "Renovation of this build- ing" and relocation of the com- munity college is probably one of the nicer things that have happened to me and to the Greenbrier Valley in recent years. I.t's going to be a great addition to our Valley." Greenbrler Community Col- lege Foundation, Inc., pledged to raise $1.25 million in private donations. "We seem to be stuck Just below the one million dollar mark," Foundation presi- dent Dr. Kyle F. Fort said. "However, the Foundation has applied for numerous govern- ment and foundation grants, and hope to meet our goal of $1.25 million shortly." Fort assured the College Sys- tem Board of Directors that Greenbrler Community College Foundation would meet its goal of $1.25 million for the project. ~'he Greenbrier Valley supports its community college center," he said. "The State College System Board decision to release all the state's $1.375 million up front instead of over five years will save the project about $135,000 in interest charges," Greenbrler Community College Foundation Treasurer Philip McLaughlin, President and CEO of Green- brier Valley National Bank and Horizon Bancorp said. "We have been trying for four years to get the State College System Board of Directors' ap- proval," Dr. James E. Cox, Jr. said. "This is the biggest single hurdle we have had to get over." Cox and the Board's approval will allow Greenbrier Commu- nlty College Foundation to bid out the construction. "Dr. Moore's presentation was based on revised estimates of the project's total cost," Cox said. "Current estimates to renovate the entire building and properly equip natural sciences and com- puter laboratories. Improve the library, install telecommunica- tions equipment for distance learning, and furnish the build- ing come to approximately $3 million dollars."
