Yakima's Pacific Northwest University will break ground Wednesday on a new student center named for Tri-Citians Dr. John and Priscilla Cadwell.
The Cadwells are building the student center and leasing it back to the university, according to a news release.
The Cadwell Student Center is designed to give students in the College of Osteopathic Medicine expanded classroom and research space, study areas, student government offices and a student lounge.
Construction is expected to finish by the end of the year.
PNWU is a nonprofit postgraduate university offering health science programs to meet health manpower needs in rural and underserved areas in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
