Grant ’63 and Carol Nelson Strength and Conditioning Center Dedication


On Oct. 17, we held a special virtual dedication of the Grant ’63 and Carol Nelson Strength and Conditioning Center.  Hosted by Heather Weems, Director of Athletics, the dedication represents the realization of a vision to provide St. Cloud State’s Division II student athletes with a state-of-the-art facility to support their development and preparation for athletic success.  Women and men student athletes alike will benefit greatly from the Nelson Strength and Conditioning Center.  Likewise the center is expected to provide a big boost to recruiting and positions St. Cloud State athletics for success going forward.  The center is named in recognition for longtime benefactors Grant ’63 and Carol Nelson whose leadership gift helped make the center a reality.  They joined Heather Weems for a special conversation as part of the virtual dedication.  A “live and in-person” open house will be announced for Spring 2021.
