The iconic former Marshall Hotel will be turned into a center for graduate and professional programs. The eight-story hotel built in 1929 was saved from the wrecking ball by two Marshall families who’ve been renovating the building for a decade in partnership with the city. Judge Richard Anderson, one of the partners in the public-private venture, said the building was recently appraised at $3.2 million. He said giving ETBU downtown real estate will open up new opportunities for the university.&nbsp;</p><p></p><p></p> Tue, 10 Sep 2013 13:44:40 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 33242 at http://redriverradio.org Former Hotel Marshall will become hub for graduate education College freshmen still waiting on verbal scholarship promise to East Texas Baptist University http://redriverradio.org/post/college-freshmen-still-waiting-verbal-scholarship-promise-east-texas-baptist-university <p>College plans for 16 high school graduates from New London, Texas, are in flux after a promise of a free-ride at East Texas Baptist University has not happened.
