An auditorium at Nicholls State University has been formally renamed and dedicated to the memory of Ridley J. Gros.
Gros was the former dean of Nicholls' College of Business Administration.
A Nicholls news release said Thursday's ceremony in the auditorium at the university's Powell Hall included the unveiling of a portrait of Gros.
Gros, who died in August, was a Donaldsonville native who had a 36-year career at Nicholls, where he served as a dean and a vice president.
His widow, Kathleen Gros, attended Thursday's ceremony along with his children and grandchildren.
