Change the CSTAC Building Name to Finnegan Center for Communication Studies and Theatre
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 was immeasurable.
