Demolition began Wednesday morning on Building 18, also known as the Media Arts Complex. Most passersby on the Promenade probably have no idea how many interesting uses the building had -- even the worst of the Valley heat was no match for one of its features.

To call Kevin Warren accomplished might be an understatement. The GCU Athletics Hall of Famer played college basketball at an Ivy League School before transferring to GCU to finish his undergraduate degree -- his 23.3 points per game average during the 1985-86 season is fourth best in GCU basketball history. He went on to become a lawyer and run his own firm and now is the only black chief operating officer in the NFL. But Warren's accomplishments should hardly be a surprise. He is carrying on the legacy of his parents.
