Ribbon-cutting for Hardy Hall

The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast celebrated the completion of the historic restoration of Hardy Hall and Lloyd Hall with a ribbon cutting ceremony March 30 during the Southern Miss Jazz and Blues Festival on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach. Southern Miss administrators, faculty, staff, students, and community leaders took part in the ceremony and festivities to celebrate the reopening of the historic Hardy Hall and Lloyd Hall after the buildings were heavily damaged from Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. Following the ceremony, an open house was held in the buildings while the Jazz and Blues Festival continued through the afternoon.
