Franklin Pierce University will rename Pierce Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. in a ceremony  honoring Tony and Patricia Spagnuolo, friends of the University. We invite the University and local communities to join us in this official dedication of Spagnuolo Hall.

"I am pleased to announce that Pierce Hall has been renamed Spagnuolo Hall for Tony and Patricia Spagnuolo in recognition of the Spagnuolo family’s tremendous generosity and long-standing partnership with Franklin Pierce University," said President James F. Birge.

Tony Spagnuolo is co-owner of Eckman Construction Company, the contractors who have constructed numerous campus facilities including Petrocelli Hall, the Emily Flint Campus Center, Pierce Hall and the under-construction, Dr. Arthur and Martha Pappas Health Sciences and Athletic Training Center. "Mr. Spagnuolo has worked closely with many members of the Franklin Pierce community over the years to develop buildings that reflect the character of our beautiful campus and facilitate and support our mission," added Dr. Birge. "We are deeply grateful for his expertise and kind generosity and are proud to rename Pierce Hall in his honor."
