Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr., Purdue Polytechnic and Flagship Enterprise Center will present a celebration and technology showcase of the new Purdue Polytechnic building, Flagship East. The dedication will take place on August 25th at 10 a.m. at 1920 Purdue Parkway (just north of Ford Autoworld Dealership on Scatterfield Rd.)
The reception and gathering will begin at 10 a.m. leading into the dedication program and ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. Tours of the new building will be provided from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
While tours are ongoing, there will be a dedication of the Wylam Center at 11:30 a.m. along with a picnic lunch at noon. Also going on during the tours and showcase will be the dedication of the “R&R Racing” memorial with the celebration ending at 2 p.m.
"This building provides the opportunity for bright young minds to pursue innovation in a state of the art environment,” Charles Staley, president and CEO of Flagship Enterprise Center says, “It also embodies a seamless partnership of academic, business, and government resources to strengthen our community and address the pressing need to have a workforce prepared for the 21st Century."
“The new Purdue Polytechnic Anderson facility opens an expanded world of opportunity for our students, industry partners and the community.” Corey Sharp Director of Purdue Polytechnic Anderson stated, “We can now have a greater impact on the lives of more students. Our graduates will be well prepared as job seekers or job creators.”
Mayor Broderick stated, “The city is proud to be a significant partner in this new cutting edge facility that will lead the way in redefining higher educational opportunities and providing innovation in advanced manufacturing, science and technology.” Broderick noted, “Anderson has been at the forefront of innovation for years and it is fitting that the nearly 100,000 square foot facility now sets on a former brownfield site where General Motors Delco Remy Plant 3 once stood. As in the past, Anderson continues to redefine itself and capitalizes upon the strength and character of its people. I have no double that Anderson will continue to grow and prosper as we move forward.”
