Jennifer joined the GAA in January 2017. She is thrilled to be back at Carolina and loves bumping into fellow Tar Heels on her (almost) daily walks around campus. In her spare time, Jennifer can be found chasing her daughters with her college sweetheart Shawn ’08, dining with friends at their favorite restaurants, playing the piano or getting lost in a good book.

Now is the time to start making your plans to come to Chapel Hill for your 50th class reunion, Thursday, May 7 – Sunday, May 10, 2020.

We’ll begin Thursday evening with a reception in Graham Memorial (near the Davie Poplar, the Old Well and Franklin Street), and we’ll conclude, adorned in Carolina blue gowns, processing into Kenan Stadium on Sunday. Stay tuned to your email and alumni.unc.edu/springreunions as we update you with weekend details.

Miss the spirit of this place? Watch these videos: Carolina Is and Tar Heel Voices. We think they will bring you right back to the Southern Part of Heaven, before you really come back in May for your 50th reunion.

We will come together in 2020 to share this very special, once-in-a-lifetime occasion to celebrate our 50th reunion.

P.S. You’ll remember our class participated in the UNC Alumni Heart Study while we were in school at UNC. This study and associated research has gone on for the past 50 years, can you believe it? Here are the findings from that study.

These and other topics will be addressed by Anna Wu, vice chancellor for facility services, and Evan Yassky, university architect.

The Carolina Club, George Watts Hill Alumni Center

James Lee Love (class of 1884) donated an endowment to the General Alumni Association to fund an annual gathering of the “Old Students Club” for all who have reached or passed the 50th anniversary of their graduation year. Thomas Willis Lambeth ’57 will be our featured speaker. Lambeth concluded his distinguished career of public service as executive director of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, prior to which he served as administrative assistant to Congressman L. Richardson Preyer and North Carolina Gov. Terry Sanford ’39, and was on staff at the H. Smith Richardson Foundation. Lambeth served on the UNC Board of Trustees, of which he was chair, as well as the longtime chair of the GAA’s Tar Heel Network. He has also served as chair of the GAA Board of Directors. Lambeth has earned the North Carolina Award from the State of North Carolina, the University Award from the UNC System, both an Honorary Degree and Distinguished Alumnus Award from UNC, the William Richardson Davie Award from the UNC Board of Trustees and the Distinguished Service Medal from the GAA. Upon his retirement from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, the foundation made a gift to establish Thomas Willis Lambeth Professorships in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as the Schools of Government and Social Work.

2:40 – 3:40 p.m. | FEATURED ENRICHMENT SESSION – Carolina Men’s Basketball – As Experienced by the Class of ‘70
Blue Zone (Concourse Level), Kenan Stadium

Jim Delany ’70 (’73 JD), Eddie Fogler ’70 (’73 MAT) and Charles Scott ’70 share their walk down memory lane (with no turnovers) – from their freshman team onward to two consecutive Final Fours. Led by future Naismith Hall of Fame coaches Dean Smith and Larry Brown ’63 and assisted by coaches Bill Guthridge and John Lotz at both freshmen and varsity levels, this dynamic team was populated by many future professional players, including Naismith Hall of Fame inductee Scott, as well as many Morehead Scholars on the freshmen team. Like all undergraduates during the 1966-70 period, Scott, Fogler and Delany were keenly aware of and buffeted by the times and the associated social experiences. These teammates each had children who went on to play college sports and graduate from Vanderbilt, Ohio State and UNC. Hear their perceptions of how their children’s experiences were similar to and different from their own experiences 50 years ago.

Letter from Doug Dibbert '70, GAA President

Dear Classmates,

On a hot, sticky evening in Kenan Stadium, on Monday, June 1, 1970, we graduated from Carolina.

Yes, it has indeed been almost 50 years, and soon you’ll receive a message from our freshman class president, Professor Bland Simpson, who not only enjoyed growing up in Chapel Hill and attending Carolina, but has also long taught and continues to teach Creative Writing at UNC.

And like me, Bland will encourage you to circle these dates –Thursday, May 7 – Sunday, May 10, 2020, for our 50th Class Reunion.

We’ll begin Thursday evening with a reception in Graham Memorial (near the Davie Poplar, the Old Well and Franklin Street), and we’ll conclude, adorned in Carolina blue gowns, processing into Kenan Stadium on Sunday (to late 60’s music selected by all 1970 attendees).

We have only this one opportunity to celebrate our 50th reunion, and we welcome your suggestions and your ideas for enrichment programing, for elements to include in our 50th anniversary edition of the Yackety Yack, and for what you think should be “must haves” at our Saturday night golden-anniversary gathering.

Most importantly, we need – and ask – your personal commitment to attend and to encourage other classmates to attend. Only by personally reaching out (call, email, write, visit, text, FaceTime, Skype, etc.) can you be certain that all those who you most want to see will know that you’re going to attend and that you really want them to attend, too.

Even if it is your first return visit since June 1, 1970, now is the time to start making your personal plans to come to Chapel Hill. If you have friends who live in the Triangle, please don’t wait for them to reach out to you to invite you to stay with them. Contact them, and invite yourself to be their guest. Yes, be bold, and if you live in the Triangle and have classmates with whom you really want to share this special weekend, reach out to them now and offer them your guest bedroom(s).

If you don’t have friends in the Triangle but have classmates with whom you’d like to share the weekend, why not consider coming together at an area Airbnb? Many did just that in during the class of ’69 reunion and felt like they had had one grand, nostalgic Jubilee weekend.

Our individual journeys over the past 50 years have been varied – with joys and sorrows, successes and failures, dreams fulfilled and aspirations unmet. We will come together because we realize something special happened during our time together in Chapel Hill and at Carolina – even if we didn’t know it then and even if we didn’t all know each other. We will come together in 2020 because we are fortunate to be healthy and are anxious to share this very special, once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

So, for now, please simply affirm the following by emailing reunions@unc.edu:

• I/we will be there!

• I/we will contact other classmates. (If you are a GAA member, you have 24/7 access to our online alumni directory where you’ll find the latest contact information for Carolina’s 330,000+ living alumni. If you are not a GAA member, please just send me the names of those you’d like to contact.)

• I/we would like to serve on the Reunion Planning Committee.

• I/we live too far away to serve on any committees, but here are some suggestions:

When I returned to Carolina nearly 37 years ago, quite honestly, I didn’t anticipate that I’d still be here and still serving as alumni director. Well, I am fortunate to still be here, and I am anxious to do all that I can, with each of you, to make our 50th reunion the very best.

Thank you for what you have done, are doing and will do. In the meantime, you can also look back on our 45th Class Reunion.

Yours at Carolina,

Doug

Letter from Bland Simpson '70, Freshman Class President

Dear Classmates,

Though it scarcely seems like the half century it has been since we began our class’s senior year at Carolina, looking toward our upcoming graduations in June of 1970, the calendar now advises us that our turn is nigh for forming up and taking a 50th graduation anniversary lap around Kenan Stadium, on Sunday, May 10th, 2020.

Yet we will do much more than that here in Chapel Hill in May.  With the help and guidance of UNC’s General Alumni Association, long and wonderfully led by our fellow Class of ‘70 member Doug Dibbert, we will enjoy a variety of social and academic events over this Thursday to Sunday long weekend (May 7th-10th).  Planning has now begun, and specifics will be forthcoming – please make plans to be here and encourage other classmates as well.

And please, for a moment, just think back:  what incredible teachers we had!  I remember so fondly and deeply appreciate Elizabeth Nathans, Don Mathews, Joel Williamson and Herbert Bodman in history; Ruel Tyson in religious studies; poet-professor Lou Lipsitz, Andy Scott and Earl Wallace in political science; Walter Spearman in journalism; Jerry Mills, the Renaissance scholar, and Tom Stumpf in English, who taught the Old Testament as literature . . . and so many more.

We all recall Charlie Scott’s, Larry Miller’s and Dick Grubar’s basketball heroics, and my own thoughts of those days always return to the constant talk of politics and music:  at Harry’s restaurant next to the downtown post office on Franklin Street, in Old East dorm, and at the Carolina Political Union and at the Daily Tar Heel, both then on the top floor of Graham Memorial.

Much has since changed about Chapel Hill, of course, but the great heart of Carolina beats on as strong as ever.  As a faculty member here in English and Creative Writing since 1982, teaching alongside Doris Betts and Max Steele, I have been honored to witness and work with such cherished colleagues and with so many young, talented Tar Heel writers – and to stay in touch with so many of these students well after their graduations, just as those of us in the Class of ’70 remained friends with our former professors, who gave us so much.

We have a lot to remember together, and we will have a big time doing so.  Just as our undergraduate years at Carolina were once-in-a-lifetime, so will this 50th anniversary gathering be.  Please do come back and bring the family, and be among lifelong friends for this glorious Chapel Hill occasion.

With great friendship,

Bland Simpson

Letter from Buck Goldstein '70, Classmate

Dear Classmates,

It is often said that anyone who remembers the ’60s wasn’t really there. This is great news for those of us who have a hard time reminiscing about the good old days when there is still so much left to do. Sure, you might have a vague recollection of acid being used for more than removing stains and weed being inhaled rather than eradicated with Round Up. You might remember Janis Joplin’s after-concert performance at the St. A house but you’re probably not sure if you were actually there or you heard about it the next day. If everyone who claimed to have demonstrated, turned over tables or camped out in Polk Place actually did, the craziness our class inflicted on our school would have been magnified tenfold. Even your handshake with Muhammad Ali after his talk in Carmichael might or might not have actually happened. So, admit it: You don’t remember much and what you do remember has been altered by the passage of time. So with the nostalgia out of the way, you can return to Chapel Hill with a focus on the present and, more importantly, the future.

Kay and I have been living in Chapel Hill for the last 16 years, and I can promise you that sitting on the wall at McCorkle Place or just walking into Sutton’s or Carolina Coffee Shop is still a joy. Even better is having a conversation with a young historian on reconstruction or a chemist on nanotechnology or a journalist about the impact of social media on reporting the news. Amidst all the change over the last 50 years, the magic of this place remains. Spending the weekend here will make you smile and remind you that there will always be a place in your heart for Chapel Hill.

But, if you are like me you might not be sure if you can ever go home again. Give it a try for the sake of the future. As students, we believed we could make a difference, and there is no reason to stop thinking that now. Our class has always found itself in the middle of monumental change and the current environment is no exception. Our reunion will give us a chance to spend time with experts, some of whom are your classmates and will help you make sense of the world we live in.  More importantly, it will remind you of a set of enduring values like fact-based inquiry and the free flow of controversial ideas even when you disagree with them. You also will be reminded of the joy of learning something new.

Our generation has always had an outsized influence on the culture we live in. There are more of us than any other and, for better or worse, we spoke our mind. Come to our reunion, spend a great weekend being rejuvenated and then go home rededicated to making a difference.

See you in May.
Buck Goldstein

Letter from Jim Delany '70, Classmate

Classmates,

I hope you are planning to be in Chapel Hill next May 7-10 for our 50th reunion. Yup — it’s a half century since we graduated, with lots of water over the dam.

As a former chair of the GAA Board of Directors, owner of a second home on the Haw River in Chatham County and proud parent of two UNC graduates, I’ve had ample time to catch up and stay engaged with our University over the past 15 years. What excites me most about this reunion is reengaging with classmates and friends to remember, explore and reflect on our time in Chapel Hill from 1966-70.

I’ve asked my friends Charles Scott ’70 and Eddie Fogler ’70, who were teammates and fellow captains on Carolina basketball teams during our time in Chapel Hill, to join me Friday afternoon to discuss, reflect and share perspectives on those formative and fascinating years on campus. Playing for Coach Smith, living through dramatic social and political change — while making our way as undergraduate students — sure was interesting. I’m sure you, along with the three of us, can learn and benefit by looking back and remembering moments and sharing perspectives from 50 years ago. Our 1966-67 freshmen basketball team, coached by Larry Brown ’63, has come together for reunions five or six times over the past 50 years, and we plan to do so again when we’re together in May.

We have lost some of our best friends and teammates over the years, but we will gather to remember them along with the good and challenging times from that dynamic and transformative four-year period. I encourage you to come, enjoy, remember and celebrate as well as call, email, write and otherwise reach out to classmates you really hope and want to see and encourage them to join us.

— Jim Delany ’70, Chicago

50th Reunion Patrons

Please become a class of ’70 50th Reunion Patron

Following the tradition of 50th reunion classes before us, we have created a Patron Fund for our upcoming 50th Reunion, May 7 – 10, 2020.  Your contribution to our Patron Fund directly supports our class reunion. Classmates may make a contribution to this fund to help defray the costs of events such as the Saturday night banquet and dance, the publication of our 50th Anniversary Yackety Yack, courtesy refreshments at various events and discreet assistance to fellow classmates who would like to attend our 50th Reunion but need financial assistance to do so. By keeping ticket costs and reunions expenses down, we hope to encourage more of our classmates to attend. Funds that remain, after our reunion expenses are covered, will go towards a class gift in honor of our 50th anniversary.

Our patron fundraising goal is $25,000. As we are the class of ’70, we suggest a contribution of $270, but contributions of any size are welcome. Those who contribute $270 or more will automatically receive a copy of the 50th Anniversary Yackety Yack, our class’s 50th anniversary souvenir booklet containing classmate contact information and updates, at no additional cost. While contribution amounts will remain confidential, all contributors will be listed alphabetically and thanked in the 50th Anniversary Yackety Yack for donations made before the content submission deadline of Jan. 19. You may know someone or have a business contact who might donate $1,000, $5,000 or more. So don’t hesitate. Send your donation now. You may send a check, pay by credit card or contribute online using this link. Sending your donation now allows us to better budget for the events and activities being planned, helping make this our most memorable reunion yet.

The reunion committee members have all pledged their support to meet our patron fundraising goal. We look forward to seeing you in Chapel Hill, May 7 – 10, where the skies are Carolina blue, the Old Well offers cool water and Franklin Street is still the place to be.

Kind regards,
