FAMU set to cut ribbon on newly renovated Gore Education Complex

Gore Education Center, December 2012
FAMU has scheduled the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Gore Education Center for Wednesday, April 10 at 11:30 a.m.

Back in 2007, Sen. Alfred “Al” Lawson steered $8,301,606 into FAMU’s budget to help remodel the Gore Education Complex. That was followed by another $5,600,000 in 2008. Both appropriations came from Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) dollars.

The 71,366 SF facility boasts upgraded classrooms, labs and teaching spaces with state-of-the-art technology and equipment.

In addition, Gore renovation funds are being used to refurbish the formerly defunct Teaching Pool at the Gaither Athletic Campus.
