Heyward, who served the university as an instructor of mathematics, director of the university center, vice president for college activities, provost, and vice president for student affairs during a celebrated 30-plus year career, will have a key campus thoroughfare named in his honor. Patriot Drive, the primary east-west artery through campus, will become Heyward Drive.
