UT classroom named after Peyton Manning

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The University of Tennessee has named a classroom after NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, who started a new endowment for his alma mater.

Manning was the top speech communications graduate in spring 1997 and he received the College of Communication and Information's Hileman Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007.

The college said the new endowment is called the Peyton Manning Communications Enrichment, which will provide funding support for educational initiatives within the college.

The classroom is located in room 317 of the Communications Building. Manning also has a road named after him near the university's football stadium and a scholarship for freshman participating in the UT Honors Program.
