Officials cut a ribbon during a re-opening ceremony for Eisenhower Hall Friday morning at Fort Leavenworth. The building, which originally opened in 1994, had been undergoing renovations since last year. Eisenhower Hall houses the School for Command Preparation, the Army Management Staff College, an Army Wellness Center and the Combined Arms Research Library.
The renovations allowed 40 classrooms to be brought up to what are known as the Army's Classroom XXI standards. The renovations also included energy saving upgrades and a new conference center. The building now features an exhibit from the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene.
Jeff LaMoe, chief of staff for the Combined Arms Center-Leader Development and Education, said the renovation of Eisenhower Hall was part of a project that started six years ago to renovate five buildings at a cost of $80 million. Of that $80 million, $38 million was budgeted for the renovations at Eisenhower Hall.
