“Topping Out” Ceremony

On Dec. 11, the College community gathered for a “topping out” ceremony of the Carol and Park B. Smith Hall. A tradition in the construction industry, the ceremony featured a steel beam that was signed by Carol and Park Smith ’54 and members of the College community and topped by a fir tree and an American flag. The beam was lifted to the top of Smith Hall and set in place by ironworkers to the cheers of the crowd gathered below.
