Talladega, AL — The Talladega College Board of Trustees has granted Talladega College President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins approval to develop a stadium-sized, enclosed multipurpose field, the school announced on Monday.
The facility will be used for band practice, soccer events, diverse student events, and other activities.
On Monday the college began adding synthetic turf to the field located behind the institution’s new residence hall and the Dr. Billy C. Hawkins Student Activity Center. Lighting and fencing will also be added.
“This is a continuation of the transformation of Talladega College,” said Dr. Hawkins. “We recently opened three new facilities; upgraded buildings campus-wide; launched a new graduate program; earned impressive regional and national rankings; and celebrated record-breaking enrollment increases.”
“Community members who have driven by campus over the past two and a half years have marveled at how vibrant and attractive the area has become. Adding a state-of-the-art, stadium-sized field will further enhance the campus and elevate the student experience,” he stated. “This will be an asset for the college and the entire community.”
