Hotel coming in 2009
By Abbigail Overfelt
The hotel, which will also bring a conference center, will be housed across from First Health on Highway 711.
Cummings also said that the hotel will bring an investment of $5 million to Pembroke, which should improve the town’s tax base.
“I think it will be a wonderful addition for the families who come to visit their sons and daughters,” said Chancellor Allen C. Meadors.
He added that a local place to stay might also bring in more people for campus events such as sporting events and the speaker series held at the Givens Performing Arts Center. “I think it will be positive in any way you can think of,” he said.
