CONSTRUCTION STARTS ON NEW A&M EVENT CENTER

Officials from Turner Construction Company recently announced that construction has begun on the new 132,000-sq. ft. event center and arena at the Alabama A&M University. The facility will include an arena with a 6,000-person capacity, locker rooms, training rooms, a Hall of Fame honoring former AAMU student athletes, and a kitchen with the capability to provide meals for campus events. The arena will host sporting events such as basketball and volleyball games, student graduation ceremonies, and other university functions. “The center will provide the university with a much-needed facility where we can host major functions, such as commencements, convocations, our annual scholarship gala, and athletic events,” said Andrew Hugine, Jr., President of Alabama A&M University. “It will be a state-of-the-art facility just off of North Memorial Parkway, and we are thrilled to be making this addition for our students and the community, which will transform the landscape of north Huntsville.” Turner is representing AAMU as the construction management agent (CMA) for the project and it is expected to be complete in 2022.

AAMU COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION RECEIVES DONATION

Demonstrating what it means to be a good neighbor in challenging times, fourteen local State Farm agents stepped up to deliver a $7000 donation to Alabama A&M Community Development Corporation to support neighborhood programming in underserved communities. “At State Farm, we are committed to helping build stronger, safer, better educated communities,” says Shon Henry, Agent who helped organize the donation. “We know it's not enough to simply be against racial inequity in thought alone. In helping support organizations that provide programming and resources to vulnerable communities, we embrace the responsibility to make the world around us better by being a part of the solution.”
