February 15, 2022 — Kuhn Hall now has drywall! And electrical wiring, an elevator shaft, furniture selections, doorways, floors, ceilings, renderings of rooms and more. Yet amidst the lightening speed progress of the long-awaited renovation, Kuhn Hall also has been getting the attention of the community and industry. With recent news coverage, ongoing coordination with military personnel as well as visits from County and State representatives, the momentum of the future Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall includes support inside and out — literally.
Not too long after demolition began last year, Maryland Senator Pam Beidle, a long-time supporter of this project, visited Kuhn Hall this past December to see firsthand how the vision brought forward so many years ago is developing. February 2022 began with a visit from Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman who also recognizes the importance of the project for the region.
Behind the scenes and following the wake of two WBAL-TV11, NBC local broadcasts over Veterans Day weekend in November 2021, the anticipation of the new Education and Resiliency Center became regional when Fox 5, DC covered the progress in January.
Meanwhile, the opportunity to run fingers across the brick of the actual building (and its dry wall!) knowing vital education and resiliency services will soon be available in that very space is inspiring the leaders of the Installation. Realizing that now is the opportunity to discuss the utilization of the new space, the Installation is diligently coordinating the details of future services and programs and aiming for a smooth transition when the building opens.
