A groundbreaking ceremony took place at the University of West Kansas Monday in celebration of what will be a $10 million benchmark – the largest, most expensive benchmark in the United States.
“Now, when you’re looking for benchmarks, you will think of Kansas,” boasted Trustee, Al Phillips, who personally donated $2 million to the project. “The benchmark will be certified platinum by LEED, and we predict that with all the benchmarking being done throughout the country, the investment will eventually pay for itself.”
“We can’t wait to see the new benchmark!” said student body president Stacey Vilders. “Now, when we want to do a project and someone stalls us by asking us to look at benchmarks, we will have the best one right here!”
