West Texas A&M's new Fine Arts Complex will be named after its most generous benefactor.

The University's newest building will be known as the Sybil B. Harrington Fine Arts Complex.

The late Mrs. Harrington was a major contributor to the University for many years before her death in 1998. WTAMU's College of Arts and Humanities is also named for her.

To date, the Don and Sybil Harrington foundation and the Sybil B. Harrington trust have combined to give the University more than 13-million dollars.
