Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- The signature bell tower standing over Concordia's Campus now has a name.

The College held a naming ceremony for the Paul J. Dovre Campanile today. It is named after the college's eighth president, who retired in 1999. He came back to serve as interim president for the 2010-2011 year.

Dovre says he is overwhelmed to have his name attached to such a meaningful piece of campus.

Dovre says, "this is a symbol of what brings this college together. So, to have my name attached to it is both humbling and a great honor."

Dovre graduated from Concordia in 1958.
