Southern Utah Removes Senator's Name From Building

September 2, 2014

Southern Utah University has removed the name of a prominent alumnus -- U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- from the building housing the Outdoor Engagement Center of the campus, The Spectrum reported. Local civic leaders objected to having the prominent Democrat's name on a building and offered to raise money to give to the university in return for the removal of Reid's name. University officials said that offer did not motivate them, and that they hoped to have a new building (for which no money has yet been raised) named for Reid.
