New Castle, NH – Senator Judd Gregg bid adieu to Washington this week, returning home for a ceremony marking his many contributions to the University of New Hampshire over the years. At the ceremony, UNH President Mark Huddleston unveiled a new name for the university’s coastal research facilities in New Castle: the Judd Gregg Marine Research Complex. In his dedication speech, Huddleston talked about Gregg’s legacy of securing key funding for coastal conservation and research in the Granite State. “…the Senator has worked with UNH to improve water quality, reduce stormwater pollution, and protect critical open spaces,” he said.
“In fact, Senator Gregg has secured nearly $60 million to conserve lands around the Great Bay alone.”
Gregg helped to secure the funding used to build and later renovate the facility that now bears his name.
