There’s a look people get when they talk about the building. It’s sort of this faraway, dreamy gaze that lingers. There is a breathiness in their voices as they seek the words to adequately describe what looks like a building but is so much more.
I’ve seen it and heard it in the months leading up to the dedication in September. President Ronald A. Crutcher had that look this summer as he sat in his office talking about the challenges that had to be overcome to bring forth the largest capital project in Wheaton’s history during such a tough economy. Professor Tommy Ratliff has that excitement in his voice in an online video interview, as he discusses the goals for the new science center.
