By Chad Kebrdle DONALDSON – For the second time in 11 months, a formidable crowd of Ancilla College supporters converged to witness a blessing ceremony. In August 2015, it was to witness the Most Reverend Bishop Kevin Rhoades bless the first residence hall. On July 18, 2016, the ceremony officially opened the private college’s second residence hall and blessed the dining commons, which was completed in December. Before the blessing, the first two buildings’ names were announced. The first residence hall was named Hardesty Hall after James Hardesty who, even posthumously, has been a major donor to the college. On hand to give comment was his nephew and Ancilla board of trustees’ member, Chuck Hardesty. “I know my uncle is looking down and smiling,” Hardesty said.
