UVa-Wise to hold ribbon cutting for new Convocation Center on Oct. 10

The University of Virginia's College at Wise will officially cut the ribbon on its new $30 million Convocation Center on Monday, Oct. 10 at 1:30 p.m.

The public is invited to attend the event, which will take place outside the Convocation Center. The new facility is located adjacent to Carl Smith Stadium.

Delegate Terry Kilgore and other state and local lawmakers will join UVa-Wise and University of Virginia officials for the ceremony. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the Convocation Center.

The facility, seen as vital to Southwest Virginia's economic development efforts for decades, was funded by the Virginia General Assembly.
