TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 24, 2011) -
Tallahassee Community College has announced that it will name its athletic gymnasium after late District Board of Trustee member Bill Hebrock.
Mr. Hebrock, who passed away on January 4, had served on TCC’s Board of Trustees, representing Leon County, since 1999 and chaired the Board in 2001-02.
By unanimous vote during its January meeting, the Board of Trustees approved to rename and rededicate the College’s athletic gymnasium as the Bill Hebrock Eagledome. At the February Board Meeting, held on Monday, that decision was made public in the form of a resolution, presented to the Hebrock family, honoring the late Trustee for his many contributions to TCC and the city of Tallahassee.
During his tenure on TCC’s board, Mr. Hebrock served on various committees, including the presidential search committee, presidential recognition committee and presidential evaluation committee, as well as the lead gift committee for the TCC Foundation’s Major Gifts Campaign.
Mr. Hebrock was also a loyal supporter of TCC Athletics, and the opportunity to name the basketball facility in his honor was a perfect fit.
“Bill Hebrock loved Tallahassee Community College and he had a special affinity towards athletics,” said TCC President Jim Murdaugh. “I can think of no better way to show our appreciation for Mr. Hebrock than to put his name on one of our athletic facilities.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for those associated with TCC Athletics – past, present and future – to learn about one of their greatest advocates.”
The Eagledome, which makes up one half of the College’s Lifetime Sports Complex, has been home to TCC Basketball since 1990.
In addition to his service to TCC, Mr. Hebrock served on numerous boards throughout Tallahassee and Leon County.
A prominent figure in Tallahassee’s business community, Mr. Hebrock was president of Hebrock Steiner, Inc., a business consulting firm.
