SAC Honors Bill Sinkin at Grand Opening of ‘William R. Sinkin Eco Centro’

On Tuesday, April 22nd, San Antonio College hosted a special Earth Day ceremony to officially open SAC’s newest building, the William R. Sinkin Eco Centro. The festivities included a green ribbon cutting, the unveiling of a custom wall-sized mural, an Eco Fair that featured 30+ eco-friendly exhibitors from around the city and self-guided tours of the new space.  

The event gave community members a peak at some of the activities/features the building will provide, and honored Bill Sinkin’s impact on San Antonio’s sustainability efforts.  

“Naming the building after Mr. Sinkin made perfect sense. Not only was he devoted to promoting sustainable living, but he was a SAC alumnus and a wonderful supporter of the college,” said SAC President, Dr. Robert E. Zeigler. “Sinkin Eco Centro will not just be another classroom building; it will become the ‘eco’ hub for the community,” he continued.  

In addition to the custom mural made of sustainable materials, the building’s sleek design incorporates solar panels, rain harvesting, and reclaimed materials. Phase II of the project will add two electric vehicle charging stations, a B-cycle post, and a demonstration garden for student and community use.  

The mural, located on the building’s exterior wall facing Main Ave., was not in the original construction plans. A sight to be seen, it spans the wall’s surface which measures 63 feet long and 17 feet tall, at the highest end.   

Local Tobin Hill resident and artist, Luis Lopez, was commissioned to conceptualize and create the artwork.  

“The mural artfully depicts the history of the Tobin Hill neighborhood, starting from the indigenous San Pedro Springs going through current day,” Lopez said. “Like the building on which it resides, the mural is about reclaiming a healthier future for all mankind.”     

In September 2010, SAC received a $600,000 grant through HUD’s Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities (HISIAC) Program. The grant made the building’s construction possible.  

The long-awaited William R. Sinkin Eco Centro building is finally open for the community to enjoy.
