  2. In memory of any person who has made a s significant contribution to society and/or education, whose name shall lend prestige or status to an institution of learning;
  3. A local residential or geographic area (names in this category should be “neutral” if more than one community will be served by a particular facility); or
  4. A District property donor or his or her family members.
