Optional Tour of Averett's Facilities
This tour is typically the most popular part of the program. Everyone who comes wants an opportunity to stand in front of the room they lived in. Because we encourage class gifts to be designated to the restoration of Main Hall, we will have a brief presentation that will share our progress thus far and what the future holds, not just for Main Hall, but for your Alma Mater.
