In honor of former Longwood President Patrick Finnegan,
we would like to rename the Center for Communication Studies and Theatre, to
the “Finnegan Center for the Study of Communications and Theatre,” or “Finnegan
Center” for short.
Whereas, President Finnegan did so much for Longwood, and
put the University on the map.
Whereas, a man that has served his country in the United
States Army, Finnegan led Longwood into the 2010s, ushering in a new era of
pride at Longwood.
Whereas, he spearheaded the effort for Longwood to join
an NCAA Division I Athletic Conference, landing the Lancers in the Big South
Conference in 2012.
Whereas, he also led the effort for the Academic
Strategic Plan, in an effort to increase the academic status of the University.
Whereas, his time at Longwood was short, but his impact
For these and other reasons, we hereby petition to name
the “CSTAC” Building at Longwood University in honor of Longwood’s 25th
President, Brigadier General Patrick Finnegan.
