JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The University of Southern Mississippi will name three new dormitories and a student health center to honor university benefactors.

The namings were approved Thursday by the College Board.

One building in the 954-bed Century Park development will be named Luckyday Citizenship Hall in honor of former Trustmark National Bank CEO Frank Day.

The student health center in Century Park will be named the Moffitt Health Center. That honors Dr. Ginny Moffitt Crawford, USM's director of student health services, as well as her family.

Two buildings will be named for dorms they replaced. One will be Vann Hall, named for former football coach Thad "Pie" Vann. Another will be Scott Hall, honoring T.P. Scott, a Brookhaven school superintendent who was instrumental in USM's founding as Mississippi Normal College in 1910.
