RESOLUTION TO NAME THE WINTHROP CAMPUS CENTER AS THE ANTHONY J. AND GALE N. DIGIORGIO CAMPUS CENTER

WHEREAS, presidents with a significant tenure at the helm of Winthrop University have had buildings named after them; and

WHEREAS, Anthony J. DiGiorgio is the longest-serving president since the university’s founder, David Bancroft Johnson; and

WHEREAS, Winthrop University has named a number of significant campus facilities after individuals who have significantly advanced the mission of the institution; and

WHEREAS, Gale N. DiGiorgio has been a significant partner in the development of the campus community and its relationship with the Rock Hill community; and

WHEREAS, during President DiGiorgio’s tenure, the University has amassed an impressive list of awards, accomplishments and third-party validations directly attributable to his leadership and vision; and

WHEREAS, with both President and Mrs. DiGiorgio having an extensive background in higher education as well as in student life, the Campus Center, as a place where everyone on campus will come together in academic and social pursuits, will be an embodiment to the DiGiorgios’ commitment to the creation of an engaged community; and

WHEREAS, it is right, salutary and proper for the Board of Trustees to name the Campus Center at the outset of its life as a facility and to name the facility after the DiGiorgios at this time to honor the DiGiorgios for their many contributions to Winthrop and to unite the current campus community with generations to come.

BE IT RESOLVED that the Winthrop Campus Center shall forthwith be known as the Anthony J. and Gale N. DiGiorgio Campus Center.
