To honor the donors, CPCC
will rename the South Campus, near Independence Boulevard and Interstate 485, Levine Campus in an 11 a.m. ceremony Nov. 1.
The renaming will coincide with the groundbreaking for a second building that will more than double the 220,000 square feet of classroom, laboratory and office space there.
CPCC's second-largest donation was given by Lucille Giles in 1990s, Lea
said, and totaled a little more than $2 million.
