The local community joined in September to celebrate the ground breaking of the $5M+ renovation projects at Life Chiropractic College West beginning with the Standard Process Assembly Hall.
College President, Dr. Brian Kelly kicked off the ceremony by talking about the impact this development will have on the community. “We are doing these renovations first-and-foremost for our students. They deserve a fully updated facility that allows students to assemble in one place along with the staff and faculty. The new renovations will also provide a state-of-the-art health center where students will learn and intern and the college can provide valuable services to the community. It is an exciting time at Life West,” he said.
Other speakers included Justin Toal, President – Standard Process of Northern California, Inc., District Director Carolina Salazar, from the Office of Assemblymember Bill Quirk, Gus Gottschalk, Life West Board of Regents and Chair of the Facilities Committee, and Dr. Ron Oberstein, Life West Chairman of the Board of Regents.
Many local organizations, financial institutions and government leaders played a role in developing this project. Partners in the project include: City of Hayward, Standard Process and The Bank of the West. The Assembly Hall was partially financed by Standard Process with a $500,000 donation to kick off the capital campaign.
Assemblymember Bill Quirk’s office presented Life Chiropractic College West with a recognition certificate to acknowledge the importance these campus renovations will have on the student body and on the larger community.
