Hibbing Community College celebrated new names for buildings and common spaces during a ceremony Friday evening.
The renaming process began with the college seeking nominations from community members, students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
Instead of naming building by letter, the college wanted to assign more meaningful names to better reflect the history of the school and the area.
"We took this as an opportunity to really honor people who have made a sizeable impact on our students, on our campus, and in our community,” said Aaron Reini, the college’s Provost. “We've had the privilege of honoring 17 different people as well as a significant cultural site in our area"
Some of the new names for buildings and spaces include the Goodman Ceramics Building, the Hill of Three Waters Commons, and the Wenberg Theater among others.
