Centre Debate 2000
Norton Center Tours
An inside look at the Vice Presidential Debate Hall
Beginning Monday (October 2) at 6 a.m., the Commission on Presidential
Debates (CPD) will begin set construction of Newlin Hall at the Norton Center
for the Arts at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. The CPD has granted
tours of the Debate Hall to local school children during debate week at
The Debate Hall
The Commission on Presidential Debates will be handling all set construction
for the debate hall. From the removal of seats and the installation of special
air conditioning vents to the building of remote TV studios, Newlin Hall
has undergone many changes to accommodate the debate.
Tours for Local School Children
The CPD has opened the debate hall for tours of the construction process.
With a strong commitment to education, Centre felt that offering tours to
local school children would indeed make the debate an educational experience
for school children of all ages throughout the county. From fourth graders
to seniors in high school, local schools will have the opportunity to have
an inside look at the debate hall for the only vice presidential debate
of the 2000 election.
