Six Employees Honored With Massey Award

Six employees of the University have been selected for the 2017 C. Knox Massey Distinguished Service Awards, one of the most coveted distinctions earned by faculty and staff.

The late C. Knox Massey ’25 of Durham created the awards in 1980 to recognize “unusual, meritorious or superior contributions” by University employees. In 1984, he joined the families of his son, Knox Massey Jr. ’59, and daughter, Kay Massey Weatherspoon, to create the Massey-Weatherspoon fund. Income from the fund supports the Massey Awards and Carolina Seminars. Due to endowment growth, the 2017 Massey Award winners each will receive a $10,000 stipend, an increase of $2,500 over previous years.

This year’s recipients, chosen from campus-wide nominations, are:

  • Allison Legge, interim registrar and senior associate director for enrollment and undergraduate admissions;
  • San San Lwin, housekeeper, McIver Residence Hall/Kenan Community;
  • Delmazine McAdoo, housekeeper, Connor Residence Hall/Connor Community;
  • Sherry Salyer, teaching professor, director of undergraduate studies, department of exercise and sport science;
  • Dave Stevens, senior associate dean of business and operations, Kenan-Flagler Business School; and
  • Charles Streeter ’93, who also earned his master’s from UNC in 1997, applications analyst, student affairs information technology, and chair of the Employee Forum.
