University Dedicates Residence Hall Named For Its African American Pioneers
More than 500 people attended the ceremony to dedicate Peddrew-Yates Residence Hall on the Virginia Tech campus recently. The building, which is the first at the university to be named for African Americans, honors Irving L. Peddrew III, the university's first black student, and Charlie L. Yates, its first black graduate.
