The Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina Greensboro voted to remove the name of former Governor Aycock from its auditorium. In 1928, the university voted to honor Governor Aycock by naming the auditorium in his honor. While he did a great deal for education, and visited UNCG several times, it was determined that his beliefs, actions, and values, related to racial segregation, are not aligned with the core values and mission of the university today (reference, here).
As of yesterday, the name Aycock was still on the auditorium; however, we did catch the signage crew at UNCG assessing what would be involved in changing the name. It will be interesting to learn what the new name will be, as well as how the name was determined.
