The welcome center building at the W.E. Skelton 4-H Educational Conference Center at Smith Mountain Lake has been named in honor of former university president T. Marshall Hahn Jr., during whose tenure the center was founded.
A dedication ceremony for the Hahn Welcome Center will take place at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14 at the 4-H Center, located at 775 Hermitage Road in Wirtz.
“I’m honored and humbled by this naming,” Hahn said. “The amazing growth and success of this center is a credit to generations of dedicated administrators and generous volunteers. Since this center’s earliest days, it has been a shining example of how we fulfill the outreach component of Virginia Tech’s land-grant mission.”
