This building was originally known as Ehringhaus South, but was re-named in 2008 to honor Maurice J. Koury, a native of Burlington, NC. Koury graduated from UNC in 1949 with a BA in chemistry and went on to become president of Carolina Hosiery Mills. He has maintained intimate ties with the university, serving at various times on the Board of Trustees, the Board of Visitors, the Medical Foundation of North Carolina, Inc., the General Alumni Association’s board, and the Morehead Scholarship Committee.
