To the editor:

There are NO words to describe the outstanding weekend we experienced at High Point University. We were blessed to have been invited to attend the Grand Opening Celebration for the Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center. We have attended Disney World in Orlando, Florida, the World's Fair in Toronto, Canada, and have traveled around the world, and there is absolutely NOTHING that we have seen that comes close to what we saw last weekend. There has been "NO stone left unturned" in the building of the arena. Everything from the Friday ribbon cutting and seated dinner to the Sunday worship service was executed in a precise and professional way. We had an absolutely extraordinary time seeing Dean Cain (Superman in TV's "Lois and Clark"), Lee Greenwood, the rock band Train, Dr. John C. Maxwell, and many others.

Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Qubein, for what you have done/are doing for HPU and for the city of High Point. We are so very blessed by all of your many contributions. We also wish to thank the HPU staff and student body for their service.
