“Exercise supports the academic success of students and is important to the health and wellbeing of our college community,” said Beard. “I am honored to have the physical fitness center dedicated in my name, and especially pleased to honor Dr. Musunuru’s23 years of service as a trustee. Dr. Musunuru’s generous contributions to the PHSC Foundation have had an immeasurably positive impact on PHSC students and the community.”
