The weather outside was frightful but members of the Blue Mountain Community College Board of Education met Jan. 17 via Zoom and renamed the under-construction Facility for Agricultural Resource Management II building.

The project now is the Blue Mountain Equine Center, BMCC President Mark Browning said.

“The genesis for this really goes back 10-plus years when the idea started to gain some traction for this type of facility and at the time, we were also in the planning stages for what we know as FARM I here on campus,” Browning said. “The story that I’m told is they really didn’t have a good moniker to place on it. So it became FARM II by default.”
