College to Hold Dedication of Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science

By Beacon Staff

Flathead Valley Community College invites the community to attend the dedication of the Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science on April 30.

The Broussard Center is the first privately-funded building on the FVCC campus thanks to a generous legacy gift from the Broussard Family and the contributions from members of the community. The 32,000-square-foot, one-story building houses FVCC’s nursing and health-related programs as well as the college’s first student health clinic. It is the ninth building on the college’s 216-acre campus, designed in similar architecture to existing buildings by CTA Architects and constructed by Swank Enterprises.

Becky Broussard, a nurse and philanthropist for whom the building is named, is honored on opaque glass windows at the entrance to the nursing school on the west wall of the lobby. The east wall recognizes the many community members and organizations whose gifts helped complete the project. Finally, an original painting, “Fertile Ground,” inspired by the Bibler Home and Gardens in Kalispell and painted by master artist Nancy Cawdrey, hangs on the south wall for all to enjoy.

The dedication will take place at 4 p.m. on the FVCC campus. Building tours and light refreshments will follow.
