In anticipation of the upcoming dedication of the new Dixie State College Jeffrey R. Holland Centennial Commons, DSC officials have announced contingency plans for the ceremony slated for Friday, September 7th, in the Avenna Center Cox Auditorium.
In an effort to accommodate all visitors to the campus that day, Dixie State officials have set up an overflow venue next door at the Burns Arena and will provide a live television feed of the ceremony on a projection screen. Seating in the overflow venues will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The formal ceremony begins at 10 a.m., and will include remarks from DSC President Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld and the building’s namesake, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, who is a 1963 graduate of Dixie College and a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. The dedication festivities will shift to the new Holland Centennial Commons at 11:15 a.m., and will include the official ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by the dedicatory prayer offered by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency of the LDS Church. Following the ribbon cutting, Dixie State will host an open house with refreshments.
In addition, the ceremony will be available via free live streaming video on DSC’s website (live.dixie.edu) and broadcast live on Dixie’s Community Education Channel (CEC). CEC will also re-broadcast the ceremony throughout the month and beyond, and the broadcast will be available online at www.voddov.com.
