President Nabors invites members of the MDCC community to participate in naming process

Dear MDCC Supporters,

The naming of a building is an honor that contributes to the college’s sense of its heritage and is a significant event in the history of our institution. Named buildings serve as a consistent reminder of the contributions and legacies of some of the most notable individuals in the history of our college. As we now celebrate our 90th anniversary, we invite you to participate in the process of selecting names for some unnamed buildings on the Moorhead campus.

The MDCC Board of Trustees is seeking proposals from all members of the college community including alumni, friends, supporters and former employees. The Naming Committee of the Board of Trustees has approved the following criteria for naming a facility in honor of an individual:

A. A proposed honoree shall have achieved distinction in one or more of the following ways:
1)While serving the college in an important employee capacity, the individual has rendered distinguished service that warrants recognition of the individual’s exceptional contributions to the welfare of the college and/or service district.
2)The individual has contributed in truly exceptional ways to the welfare of the institution or achieved such unique distinction to warrant recognition.
B.When an individual has achieved distinction as recognized above, a proposal may be made for naming in honor of the individual on the earlier of the following:
1)Following the retirement or other separation from the college or from elected or appointed office; or,
2)Following the person’s death, if the person has not yet retired or otherwise separated from the college or District.

If you would like to nominate an individual who meets the above criteria to be considered by the Naming Committee, please send your written nomination, including a description of how the individual’s contributions to MDCC meet one of the criteria, to Dr. Nabors at the address indicated below. Alternatively, nominations can be made online at www.msdelta.edu/naming or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
