We’re proud to have the wildly talented Bland Simpson, UNC Kenan Distinguished Professor of English and Creative Writing, on our Board of Directors. He writes and sings of our N.C. coast, evoking its sights, sounds and smells, its people, culture and mysteries. On January 16, 2015 he was honored by the University GAA’s Faculty Service Award. The award, established in 1990, honors faculty members who have performed outstanding service for the University or the association.
He also performs outstanding service for us and all who love the coast. Congratulations, Bland!
