Eastern to name building for departing president

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Retiring Eastern Kentucky University President Doug Whitlock will have the Student Success Building named in his honor.

The announcement was made at a retirement dinner last week for Whitlock, who has spent more than 40 years with the university, including the last six as president.

Faculty Senate Chairwoman Sheila Pressley said that body is recommending that Whitlock be designated president emeritus.

Whitlock announced in August he planned to retire this year.
