Media report on grand opening for new field hockey complex
The Bangor Daily News, WABI (Channel 5), News Center Maine and BVM Sports reported on the grand opening of the new field hockey complex at the University of Maine. “The women you see here are a part of a great legacy at the University of Maine and they continue to burnish and advance that legacy on the playing field and as leaders within the university community,” said UMaine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy in a speech. The complex is part of the University of Maine’s $110 million athletic facilities master plan, and is supported by $90 million from the Harold Alfond Foundation. That investment is part of an overall $240 million commitment from the foundation to the University of Maine System for UMS TRANSFORMS, a multifaceted initiative to bring transformative change in public higher education in the state, strengthen its economy and workforce, and prepare future leaders with the skills needed to solve the most pressing global and local challenges. WLUC (Negaunee, Michigan) and KNEP (Scottsbluff, Nebraska) shared the WABI report.
