The Matthew Jordan Brown Center for the Performing Arts would cost about a million dollars and is to be built behind the Sedalia Center in Bedford County.
The Sheriff concedes the connection with the First Lady is mainly political. He and the Governor are both Republicans.
However, Mrs. Gilmore warmed to the project quickly.
As a mother of two young boys herself- -had difficulty getting through the emotional event, after meeting with the Browns privately.
