Mays’ new SBC Foundation Lecture Hall was recently dedicated in the Wehner Building. John Atterbury III, a 1970 Texas A&M graduate and group president of SBC Communications Inc., was on hand to celebrate the event, as was Texas A&M President Robert Gates.

“A&M and SBC have a lot in common,” Atterbury told the students, faculty and staff in attendance. “They have both endured over the years because they do things right. They also both take pride in the tradition of serving people, the spirit of being the best, and the vision that we have yet to see our best days.”

The SBC Foundation contributed $500,000 to Wehner’s expansion, which also includes the new Cox Graduate Business Center slated to open in the fall.
