Six employees have been selected by Chancellor Holden Thorp ’86 to receive a 2013 C. Knox Massey Distinguished Service Award, one of the most coveted distinctions the University gives to 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, in creating the Massey-Weatherspoon fund. Income from the fund supports the Massey Awards and Carolina Seminars.
This year’s recipients are:
Thorp will honor the recipients, who were chosen from nominations from the campus community, at an awards luncheon on April 27. Each will receive a $7,500 stipend and an award citation. With the growth of the endowment, each award is increasing from $6,000 to $7,500.
