The UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees announced six winners of the Davie Awards for extraordinary service to the University.

On Nov. 4, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees Chair David Boliek Jr. announced six recipients of the Board’s highest honor, which recognizes individuals who exemplify dedication, commitment and service to the University.

The six recipients of the 2021 William Richardson Davie Award are N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper of Raleigh; Robyn Shernita Hadley of Charlottesville, Virginia; Jean Almand Kitchin of Rocky Mount; N.C. Speaker of the House Tim Moore of Kings Mountain; and Roy and Wanda Williams of Chapel Hill.

Established by the trustees in 1984, the William Richardson Davie Award was named for the Revolutionary War hero who introduced and won passage of a 1789 bill in the General Assembly to charter the University of North Carolina. Named for the man considered the father of UNC-Chapel Hill, the William Richardson Davie Award recognizes extraordinary service to the University or society.
