At Valdosta State, 150 people turned out for the ribbon-cutting of the Jerry and Kay Jennett Lecture Hall.
The nearly 15,700 square foot facility boasts two lecture halls, and each can seat 350 people.
The cost was $1.9 million and was made possible by the Jennett family.
"This is an honor that one never even dreams of," said Kay Jennett. She added, "And it's such a great honor to be associated with this university and the kids and the facility"
Jerry and Kay Jennet have been integral to the VSU community for 30 years.
The lecture hall opens today.
