Religion Building names a bit too familiar

During Homecoming weekend, Lee unveiled names for three of the new School of Religion Building's principle rooms, but left the name of the building itself up to speculation for the future.

Despite three rooms receiving plaques of dedication, none of the names associated are new to the Lee campus naming game. Take a look:
The Charlotte Commons honors the friendship of the Charlotte Church of God.

Charlotte is conveniently the North Carolina city where Lee's satellite campus resides. The plaque also makes note of the church's pastor: Loran Livingston, for whom Livingston Hall is so aptly named.

Jones Lecture Hall is joining the elite ranks of Rose, Johnson and Edna Minor Conn.

The hall honors Deacon and Faye Jones, for whom the Deacon Jones Dining Hall is named.

The Jerry Dixon Reading Room honors Jerry and Patricia Dixon.

The room marks the third Dixon-spot on campus, after the Dixon Center and the Dixon Pentecostal Research Center, although both are named after Hal Bernard Dixon. Not to mention North Cleveland Church of God's newly renovated Dixon Chapel.

Charlotte. Jones. Dixon. Three familiar names back for another round.
