Marshall celebrates opening of engineering complex

(AP) — Marshall University has celebrated the opening of a $56 million engineering complex.

The Arthur Weisberg Family Applied Engineering Complex was dedicated Thursday in Huntington.

Art Weisberg was the president of Arthur's Enterprises, which made a large donation to help finance the engineering complex. Weisberg died in 2012, shortly after the groundbreaking for the complex. His wife, Joan, was among those at Thursday's ceremony.

Speakers included U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, U.S. Rep. Evan Jenkins and Marshall interim President Gary G. White.
