New climbing wall goes up in Student Activity Center

Posted: May 4th, 2013


WALL FOR THE CLIMBING – Lake Superior State University students and staff, along with officials from DeVere Construction, Alpena, Mich., look on as LSSU biology professor and avid climber Tom Allan test-drives a new climbing wall in Lake State's Student Activity Center. LSSU student Ramsey A've, right, and Norris Center facilities manager Ken Hopper help spot the professor. Dick's Sporting Goods, of Grand Rapids, Mich., donated wall sections during a campaign in 2011 spearheaded by LSSU's Recreation Club. Remaining sections and hardware were funded this past fall by student donations of loose change through the LSSU Foundation's "Piggy-U" effort. DeVere Construction installed two of four sections as a gift to LSSU students. Looking on from left is Debbie Jones, LSSU Foundation assistant director of annual giving; Craig Froggett, DeVere Construction; LSSU Foundation executive director Tom Coates; and Dick Crittenden, president of DeVere Construction.
