June 23, 2022 — As we all continue to navigate through the many impacts of the pandemic, the FMA Foundation is thrilled to announce that the progress toward the grand opening of the Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall continues to go well and we’re beginning to shift our focus to planning the ribbon cutting ceremony later this year.
The need to implement plans B, C or D in the face of potential supply chain challenges are no longer needed now that the replacement windows for the entire building are installed as is the ADA-approved elevator. Furthermore, after working closely with Fort Meade personnel who will occupy the building, all the ordered furniture is now in local storage. Currently, most of the new walls are painted and the focus has turned to installing the flooring, after which the furniture will be moved-in.
Meanwhile, we’re looking to schedule the ribbon cutting ceremony around Veterans Day this year, a symbolic acknowledgment to one of the many audiences the Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall will serve.
The vision for the Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall was casted 11 years ago — 11 YEARS AGO! As we come down the home stretch, our appreciation runs deep and our awe is sincere knowing how many of you have persevered with us through it all. It’s difficult to explain how much your support has meant to us and our hope is that we continue to come down the home stretch together to get glimpses of how much your support means to those of the Fort Meade community.
