BLACKSBURG, VA -

Virginia Tech wins another national award for its dining halls.

The university says the new Turner Place at Lavery Hall, which opened in the Fall of 2012, won the "Grand Award for the Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards," for best new dining facility in the country.

Tech accepted the award on July 13th.

"Eight years ago, we set forth a goal to work with the Student Government Association, Student Advisory Committee, general student population, university officials, the Division of Student Affairs leadership, Dining Service's staff, and outside entities to create the finest dining facility in the country," said Ted Faulkner, director of Dining Services, in a news release.  "It was a complex journey, but the focus on uncompromised excellence stayed true in the process.  I believe the Virginia Tech campus community knows it has something very special in Turner Place at Lavery Hall. Now the nation is recognizing that at the highest levels in the industry."
