O n June 30, 2008, the campaign to name the Local Govern- ment Wing at the School of Government officially ended with more than $808,000 donated or pledged by 72 counties, 308 municipalities, the North Carolina Association of County Commission- ers (NCACC), the North Carolina League of Municipalities (NCLM), and a number of individuals. e campaign was launched by the NCACC and NCLM during the School's extensive building renovation and expansion that ended in 2004. e Local Government Wing is a permanent testament to the historic and sig- nificant relationship between the School and local governments in North Carolina. e wing contains the two largest classrooms in the building, as well as a sunny, two-story enclosed atrium used as a gathering place for class and meeting breaks. anks to support from local governments, individuals, the North Carolina General As- sembly, and many others, the Knapp-Sanders Building was expanded during construction from 65,000 square feet to 126,000. A variety of classroom sizes and configurations, and im- proved audiovisual technology, now allow in- structors much greater flexibility to meet the learning needs of all course participants. Visi- tors especially appreciate the School bookstore and the 180-space parking deck conveniently located beside the building. e faculty and staff of the School of Gov- ernment offer their deepest thanks to North Carolina local governments, the NCLM, and the NCACC for helping commemorate a uniquely beneficial relationship of nearly 80 years with this naming. A special plaque will be installed at the entrance to the wing acknowledging the School's gratitude and celebrating the extraordinary generosity of all those who contributed to the success of the campaign.
