Music hall gets renamed
The Music Hall will be renamed Dale Beacock Hall in honor of the late Clark instructor and businessman.
Beacock was killed in a cycling accident last August. He was 81.
A lifelong musician, Beacock was the director for Clark's jazz band, concert band and brass sextet. He also coordinated what is now known as the Clark College Jazz Festival from 1970 to 1984. Winners of the competition are now awarded The Dale Beacock Memorial Sweepstakes Award in his memory.
Along with his wife, Sue, Beacock founded Beacock Music Company in Vancouver, 1976. The store's website boasts that it is the largest independent music store in the Pacific Northwest.
President Bob Knight asked the college community last December for their nominations. The choice to name it after Beacock was approved by the Executive Cabinet, and now formal dedication plans have begun. The naming will take effect during the spring quarter or the beginning of the fall quarter.
