Reids Help Turn Student-Led Initiative into Reality
The J.A. Albertson Building, home of the College of Business and Economics (CBE), is undergoing an exciting basement renovation. In 2016, students in CBE and the Interior Design program created a strategic plan to transform the underutilized CBE basement space into an innovative and welcoming space designed to enhance the CBE learning experience.
When Jim ‘70 and Tedde Reid first learned about the collaborative, multidisciplinary and student-led design concept for the Albertson basement, they were impressed. Not only did the students have a clear vision and strong plan, they had a contagious passion to move the initiative forward and provide a solution for an identified student need.
“We were excited to support a student-initiated project like this and help turn their vision and design into a reality,” the Reids said.
Their excitement resulted in a contribution that established the Garth Reid Conference Room, named in honor of Jim’s late brother and CBE alumnus.
