College of Education receives new name at dedication ceremony

Valdosta State University's College of Education will be officially named the James L. and Dorothy H. Dewar College of Education, at a naming dedication ceremony, Tuesday, April 4, 2006, at 11:00 a.m., on the Baytree Road side of the Education Center. The new name reflects the university's appreciation of a $2 million gift from the Dewar family and Park Avenue Bank, founded by Dewar.

The $2 million gift is one of the largest single gifts received by VSU and will be used to help implement projects that enhance the benefits provided by current programs and further the national reputation of the College.

Limited parking is available in the Oak Street parking lot, and additional parking will be available in the Campus Recreation parking lot on Sustella Avenue. For more information, call the Office of Special Events at 333-7446.
