If you’ve been down in the dumps over Dr. Anthony Fauci never getting his glorious due, I offer news bound to perk you eminently up.

The College of the Holy Cross has previously boasted a multi-building Integrated Science Complex. Now the joint’s getting made over, at least in the way of its name.

Come June 11th, Massachusetts will marvel over the Anthony S. Fauci Integrated Science Complex.

In search of a moniker, how’d they end up fingering Fauci? It’s probably because he’s an alumnus of the private Jesuit-Catholic school.

A press release enthuses, “Fauci, a classics major, has led the nation’s response to health crises for nearly four decades.”

Holy Cross President Vincent D. Rougeau is into inspiration:

“Dr. Fauci vividly personifies the distinctive characteristics of a Holy Cross education, and we know his life and work are already inspiring the next generation of empathetic servant leaders.”

The famed physician’s a part of your household:

Fauci ’62, Hon. ’87, is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Chief Medical Advisor to the President and the nation’s top allergy and infectious diseases expert. Over nearly four decades in the role, he has advised eight U.S. presidents and become a household name as he led the nation’s COVID-19 response efforts the past two years.

President Vincent figures the tribute fits:

“We are thrilled to celebrate Dr. Fauci in such a public and enduring way. It’s fitting that Dr. Fauci’s name will adorn a complex designed to foster integrated learning across multiple academic disciplines – the kind of broad, collaborative and holistic thinking one needs to manage health crises such as HIV/AIDS, Ebola and Zika, or the current COVID-19 pandemic.”

It’s a relative rise to the surface — as noted by The College Fix, the doctor’s been a bit MIA:

The honor comes at a time when Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the U.S. president and the nation’s top allergy and infectious diseases expert, has come under increasing scrutiny from lawmakers and the public at large over not only his handling of the COVID pandemic strategy but also his past work and research funding decisions.

They can say that again.

Just last month, Republican Sen. Rand Paul introduced an amendment to eliminate Fauci’s position as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and instead break the job into it three separate national research institutes.

As a reminder of less lauded elements of his leadership, here’s a mystifying montage:

Despite the flip-flops, the medicine man wears millionaire moccasins. In fact, he’s the highest-paid government employee in America.

The healer even hobnobs with movie stars:

Critics may possess one nitpick about the science center’s renaming. Dr. Fauci has seemed to suggest he is Science:

He told MSNBC, “A lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me quite frankly are attacks on science…”

Therefore, the name may reek of redundancy.

Nonetheless, congratulations to Dr. Fauci for his eponymous The Science Science Complex.

Will he return to camera post-midterms, courtesy of our permanent pandemic? I’d see it’s likely.

America’s waiting with bated — and fabric-obstructed — breath.
