The Appalachian State University Board of Trustees voted Sept. 27 to rename Thelma C. Raley Hall to Kenneth E. Peacock Hall, after the university’s current chancellor.
The building will be renamed in June 2014 after the Campaign for Appalachian is completed.
Peacock said while the name change is an honor, it’s not what he wants his legacy to be.
“I hope this won’t be my legacy,” he said. “I want my legacy to be more than a name on a side of a building. I want to be remembered as touching the lives of young people on campus.”
