Stratford University holds dedication
Stratford University hosted a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony April 6 at its new Richmond campus, located on W. Broad Street in Short Pump. Nearly 150 guests from legislative offices and local businesses gathered with Stratford officials for the occasion, including Patrice Lewis, outreach representative for the Office of Senator Mark R. Warner, and Tim Grimes with the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce. Gerard Robinson, Virginia Secretary of Education, served as keynote speaker.
During the ceremony, Eric Robison, president of the Greater Richmond Association for Commercial Real Estate (GRACRE) presented Dr. Richard Shurtz, president of Stratford University, and Mark Slusher of TGM Realty Investors (lead builder for the Richmond campus) with the GRACRE's Best Renovation/Reuse Project Award in the Richmond region for 2010. The event also featured hors d’oeuvres prepared by The School of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management, in addition to tours of the facility.
Dr. Even Alexander, a New York Times best-selling author who has been featured on Oprah and Dr. Oz, was in town last week to promote his June 27 talk, "Proof of Heaven," at Glen Allen High School.
Alexander (pictured, at right, while Unity of Bon Air church member Harry Simmons interviews him) has written about what he considers to be his journey through the afterlife.
