Lubbock Christian University holds opening ceremony for new campus building

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Christian University (LCU) is holding a dedication and opening ceremony for their newest building on campus, the Cardwell Welcome Center.

The new Cardwell Welcome Center will change the "face" of the university as viewed from 19th Street and is set to receive one of the highest certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The center is named for El Paso businessman Jack Cardwell and his wife Evonne, who gave a $1 million dollar lead gift for the building. The Cardwells have been long-time supporters of LCU and have influenced and contributed to numerous buildings and initiatives around campus, as well as establishing endowments. Jack Cardwell served on the LCU Board of Trustees from 1974 - 1996, where he provided counsel and business savvy to LCU administrators during some of the challenging years in the university's history.

In addition to changing the 19th Street view of the university, the Cardwell Welcome Center has many green initiatives incorporated and is on track to receive a gold certification ranking from the U.S. Green Building Council under its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System for new construction buildings. LCU uses ecologically responsible, sustainable measures to conserve energy and reduce the amount of waste and carbon emissions produced by the institution.
