The longtime president of a local college is being remembered inside a campus building that bears his name.

A memorial service was held Monday afternoon for Robert Kopecek, who served as president of Northampton Community College from 1977 to 2003.    

Kopecek died last month at his home in North Carolina.

The memorial service was held at Lipkin Theatre, which is inside Kopecek Hall on the college's main campus.
