BEATRICE – One of the original John J. Pershing College buildings on the Beatrice Campus of Southeast Community College, is coming down.
Demolition of Hoover Hall got underway on Friday. The dorm facility is being replaced by a newly constructed multi-story residence hall, on the southwest part of the campus. Campus President Bob Morgan says Hoover was built in 1965, and things will be much different with the new residence hall.
