Recognizing unusual, meritorious and superior contributions

Six Carolina employees have been selected to receive the 2020 C. Knox Massey Distinguished Service Award, one of the most prestigious distinctions for faculty and staff.

The award, established in 1980 by the late C. Knox Massey ’25 of Durham, North Carolina, recognizes “unusual, meritorious or superior contributions” by University employees. Selected through a campus-wide nomination process, Massey Award recipients receive a $10,000 stipend and an award citation.

“Carolina is distinguished in the ways our teaching, research and service efforts benefit the people of our state,” Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz said. “This work is made possible by the contributions of our extraordinary colleagues, who are the recipients of this year’s Massey Awards. I am grateful for their service and their dedication to our community.”
