UK's Gatton College of Business and Economics, together with its design and construction partners, Ross Tarrant Architects and SKANSKA, hosted a 'topping off' ceremony for the Dean's Advisory Council at the Gatton College building.

Those in attendance included: Gerry Benjamin, Michael Bowling, Gregory Burns Paul Chellgren, Luther Deaton, Bill Gatton, Doug Gerstle, Richard Huxley, Howard Lewis, Elizabeth McCoy, Rodney McMullen, Sam Mitchell, Nate Morris, Mike Richey, Donald Rogers, Geoffrey Rosenberger, Sean Smith, James Stuckert and M.S. Vijayaraghavan. Council members were given group tours of the construction site so they could see first-hand the progress being made on the building, in addition to signing a ceremonial construction beam.

"It was so exciting to tour the construction site with members of our Dean's Advisory Council," said David W. Blackwell, dean of the Gatton College. "Our members have been with us since the inception of the project and have given their time and resources to help us re-imagine the new Gatton College facility."
