DYERSBURG, Tenn. — A local community college unveils a new addition.

Dyersburg State Community College unveiled a building on campus under a new name.

The mathematics building was named in honor of former DSCC President Dr. Karen Bowyer.

Her colleagues came to support her during the ceremony.

Dr. Bowyer says having the lasting legacy on a place she holds close to her heart is an honor.
