Bookstore atrium dedication
A crowd gathered outside Saturday morning in the Quad of Louisiana Tech University campus for a dedication of the Virgil Orr Bookstore Atrium.
Orr is a former vice president for academic affairs and Louisiana Tech Alumnus of the Year.
“The individual must be deceased to name the building (after him), so we named the atrium,” Tech President Dan Reneau told attendees. “(Orr) was always accessible. Every faculty member felt comfortable in his presence. His door was truly open to faculty and students.”
