Appalachian to rename Raley Hall after Chancellor Peacock

Thelma C. Raley Hall will be renamed after current Appalachian State University Chancellor Kenneth E. Peacock in June 2014 after the Campaign for Appalachian has been completed, according to a University News release.

The name change was approved by the Appalachian State University Board of Trustees after a Sept. 27 vote.

The Campaign for Appalachian is the largest fundraising effort in the university’s history. The campaign, which launched in 2011 is set to end June 30. So far, $165 million of the $200 million goal has been raised, according to campaign.appstate.edu.

Peacock began working at the university in 1983 as a faculty member in the Department of Accounting, according to chancellor.appstate.edu. He served as Walker College of Business dean and later interim provost and executive vice chancellor before being named Appalachian’s sixth chancellor in 2004.

Peacock announced his resignation as chancellor April 18 and said he would officially step down as soon as his replacement was named. A search committee, formed Aug. 21, is currently in the process of seeking a new chancellor for Appalachian.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
