Pick, Hany Khalil and U.S. Representative Sam Farr cut the ribbon to celebrate the dedication of Khalil Hall, named after Alfie T. Khalil, Hanyâs brother. More than 150 people attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new $28 million Alfie Khalil General Instruction Building held at the Presidio of Monterey, Calif., March 4.
The facility â built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District â is named after Alfie Khalil, an Arabic language instructor at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center for 27 years and president of the American Federation of Government Employees from 1989 until his death in 2006. Twenty members of Khalilâs family, including his brother Hany, attended the ceremony.
Speaking of Khalil, Congressman Farr said: âPeople knew that languages were taught here, but they didnât know the people who taught those languages. Alfie opened that door. He did it through his union work, by upgrading the respect for teachers and making them professional in the eyes of the law and in the ability to get pay.â
