The Tower building was completed in 1984 and the dedication, which took place on May 2 of that year, was an historic event for STCL and the city of Houston. The featured guest was William H. Rehnquist, then an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. The Hon. Jack Pope, Chief Justice of the Texas Supreme Court gave the keynote address. This photo shows the official ribbon cutting with Justice Rehnquist, Dean Garland Walker, Chief Justice Pope, and The Honorable Frank Evans, Chief Justice, First Court of Appeals.
