UNCW ranked 1 4th in the South 



Twice during the fall, UNCW 
received a boost in its na- 
tional reputation when it "hit 
the charts" in U.S. News and World 
Report. 

The first honor came in the 
magazine's annual guide to "America's 
Best Colleges." UNCW was ranked 
14th among approximately 150 re- 
gional universities in the South. This 
is up from a ranking of 25th last year. 

To arrive at this ranking, U.S. 
News did a reputational survey of 
officials at 1 ,400 accredited four-year 
colleges and universities and com- 
bined those results with educational 
data provided by each university. 

A later report in U . S . News placed 
UNCW fourth in efficiency, based on 




its overall score in the earlier rankings 
and the school's 1993 spending on 
educational programs per student. 

"UNCW is very proud of this 
recognition, for all of us have worked 
very hard to make the best possible 



use of the limited resources with 
which we have to operate," said 
Marvin Moss, UNCW provost and 
vice chancellor for academic affairs. 
"Our goal has been to provide quality 
education to the people of this re- 
gion, and that has meant that we 
have had to do more with fewer re- 
sources than most of our counter- 
parts in the state." 

Both rankings are representative 
of UNCW's formal goal to become 
the best teaching university in the 
Southeast by the year 2000. Indica- 
tive of the university's commitment 
to improving, 40 percent of this year's 
freshmen chose UNCW because of 
its growing academic reputation; that 
is double the 1991 figure. 



UNCW'produced 'River Run' 
award-winning documentary 



UNCW's documentary River 
Run: Down the Cape Fear 
to the Sea has received sev- 
eral honors since it premiered on 
UNC-TV in June 1994. 

The Silver Reel award was pre- 
sented to the documentary's creators 
by the International Television 
Video Association. 

In February, two Awards of Ex- 
cellence were presented to univer- 
sity officials by the Council for 
Advancement and Support of Edu- 
cation District III. The documentary 
received recognition as an educa- 
tional fund-raising program and tor 
its radio promotions. 

In addition, the "Gone Fishin'" 
invitation for the premiere party, 
which was mailed to guests in brightly 
colored plastic fish, won an award for 



excellence and originality. 

The N.C. Wildlife Federation 
awarded the documentary a special 
merit award in the area of conserva- 
tion communications in its 1994 
Governor's Conservation Achieve- 
ment Award Program. It also received 
honors from the N.C. Department of 
Environment, Health and National 
Resources in the 1994 Take Pride in 
North Carolina awards program. 

River Run was created and pro- 
duced by UNCW to increase public 
awareness of the fragility of the Cape 
Fear River Basin ecosystem. It 
prompted both industries and envi- 
ronmental groups to work together 
to preserve the health of the river 
and may have an impact on future 
legislation as the need for increased 
monitoring of the river is realized. 



New business 
programs set 
to begin in fall 

To better meet the needs of area 
residents, Cameron School of Busi- 
ness Administration has restructured 
its MBA program and created two 
new degrees: a Master of Science in 
Accountancy and an evening under- 
graduate program. 

The new MBA program will use 
an integrated approach where stu- 
dents will study relationships between 
accounting, finance, marketing, and 
production and design sciences. 

The MSA degree is open to quali- 
fied students with degrees in fields 
other than accounting and will take 
10 to 13 months to complete. 

Evening undergraduate classes 
will be offered beginning this fall to 
make the business degree program 
more accessible to individuals who 
work during the day.

Construction 
on schedule 



Since construction on UNCW's 
new Science Building began 
in October, crews have been 
hard at work clearing the dirt away 
and putting in pilings. 

They started bringing steel to 
the construction site in January, and 
Carl Dempsey, director of construc- 
tion, stated that more than 50 flat 
bed trailers of steel are needed for 
the building. 

Representatives with Clancy and 
Theys, the same company that built 
Cameron School ot Business 
Administration.say they are on sched- 
ule, and there are no problems. The 
two-story, 100,000-square-foot sci- 
ence building is scheduled for comple- 
tion in June 1996 and will cost 
approximately $18.5 million. 

Planning to replace UNCW's 




Workers with Clancy and Theys are laying the 

Center for Marine Science Research 
at Wrightsville Beach with a new fa- 
cility in Myrtle Grove will continue 
through next year. The new teaching 
and research center will allow access 
to the ocean and tidal creeks and give 
the university space to expand some 
ot its marine science programs. 

However, funding for the center 
is still uncertain. The 1 00,000-square- 
foot building is expected to cost a 



foundation for UNCW's Science Building 

little more than $24 million. Funding 
for the project is being considered by 
the state General Assembly. 

Although construction will have 
to wait until the first drawings have 
been completed, a 769-foot pier has 
already been built for research pur- 
poses. The road leading out to the 
proposed center has also been paved.

Two potters named 'living treasures' 



Two nationally known potters 
were recognized by UNCW 
as "living treasures." 
Sidney G. Luck of Seagrove was 
named 1994 North Carolina Living 
Treasure, and Toshiko Takaezu of 
Quakertown, N.J., was chosen 1995 
National Living Treasure. Both selec- 
tions were made by the Institute for 




Toshiko Takaezu is an innovator in the 
ceramic closed form. 



Human Potential at UNCW. 

Owner of Luck's Ware pottery 
shop, Luck is following a family tradi- 
tion of turning pottery in Seagrove. In 
1955 when Luck was 10, his father re- 
opened his grandfather's pottery shop, 
built an electric wheel and became his 
teacher. More than 30 years and many 
pieces of pottery later, Luck built his 
own shop where he worked part-time. 
In 1990, he left his high school teach- 
ing job to fulfill his dream of full-time 
pottery turning. 

A native Hawaiian, Takaezu is 
recognized as an innovator in the 
ceramic closed form. Her artwork 
moved from small utilitarian forms 
to large, monumental forms as she 
explored the creative possibilities 
of clay. 

Takaezu studied pottery at Ho- 
nolulu Academy of Arts, the Univer- 




Takaez'u 



sity of Hawaii 
and Michigan's 
Cr an brook 
Academy of 
Art, where she 
later taught. 
She was on the 
faculty of 

Princeton Uni- 
versity from 
1966 to 1992 
before her retirement. 

In North Carolina where the 
heritage of functional art is still 
strong, UNCW selects a state living 
treasure each fall and a national liv- 
ing treasure biannually in recogni- 
tion of talent and master 
craftsmanship. Dr. Gerald Shinn, 
professor ot philosophy and director 
of the Institute tor Human Potential, 
founded the awards.

Will the real Jerry Shinns please stand up? 



BY ROBERT T. BROWN 

Yes, Shinns. Given all that 
he has done, there must he 
more than one! Jerry Shinn 
is one of North Carolina's most un- 
forgettable characters. Unfortu- 
nately, I cannot convey the impact 
of meeting Jerry - no matter who 
the person is, he or she feels as 
though no one else matters. 

The word giving, however over- 
used, applies to Jerry - giving of 
time, enthusiasm, warmth, support 
and kindness. A consummate full- 
time educator in the lessons of liv- 
ing, rather than teach others what 
he knows, Jerry teaches them how 
to learn and that they can learn - 
for themselves. He does so every- 
where he goes. Indeed, most of his 
thousands of students have never 
set foot in one of his classes. 

Like other great teachers, Jerry 
will never die - he will live 
through his students, generation af- 
ter generation. Through them will 
run a message expressed by Jacob 
Bronowski in his Ascent of Man: 
"We must touch people." 

His efforts range from informal 
individual programs to the estab- 
lishment of statewide, national and 
international awards. In some ways, 
the more informal ones better char- 
acterize him. Jerry has encouraged 
thousands of people, from children 
to older adults, to make accom- 
plishments of which they did not 
think themselves capable. 



Get ready for a 'Shinn Dig' 

This is Jeopardy! The answer is: "Shinn Dig." 

The question is: "What is the term for an archeological expedition in the 
Mideast led by a renowned and retiring member of the UNCW Philosophy 
and Religion Department?" 

UNCW will hold its own Shinn Dig, of sorts, when it honors Dr. Gerald 
Shinn, who will officially retire from UNCW after a career spanning nearly 
30 years. Friends, colleagues, students and others whose lives have been 
touched by Dr. Shinn are all invited to a reception from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, 
April 28, in the University Union living room. 

Dr. Shinn said he and his wife will be moving to "the farm" in Albemarle, 
where he plans to build a library, "sit up on the hill, read and do a little travelin'." 



His programs for gifted chil- 
dren have enabled many to reach a 
level of considerable renown. Many 
of our graduates are in successful 
professional and graduate careers 
owing to Jerry's belief in them 
when they did not believe in them- 
selves. The time he has spent with 
his students, his young'uns as he 
calls them, is incalculable. 

The formidable list of formal 
programs Jerry has established 
includes: 

1 ) Albert Schweitzer Interna- 
tional Prizes, awarded every four 
years at UNCW to honor the 
memory of Schweitzer in the areas 
of medicine, music and humanities. 
Two recipients subsequently have 
been awarded Nobel Prizes. 

2 ) North Carolina Living Trea- 
sure Award, awarded annually at 
UNCW to an outstanding North 



Carolina artisan. This award is 
noteworthy for its impact on recipi- 
ents and students alike. Recipients 
demonstrate their crafts for our stu- 
dents, giving them a unique educa- 
tion about their heritage. But 
consider also the recipients. Several 
have received their awards with 
tear-filled eyes, barely able to speak 
in acceptance; the award has been 
their first recognition of a career 
devoted to craftsmanship. 

3 ) National Living Treasure 
Award, presented biannually at 
UNCW to an outstanding United 
States craftsman. 

4) UNCW Museum of World 
Cultures, which has displays in 
most UNCW academic buildings. 
Concerned many years ago that our 
students were little aware of contri- 
butions of other cultures, Jerry sim- 
ply started a museum himself. Some 




SPRING 95 



SPRING 95 



of its collections are now among 
the best in the Southeast. Jerry was 
fostering appreciation of the best of 
cultural diversity before the phrase 
existed. It you have not seen the 
museum's displays, treat yourself to 
a campus tour. He has given us a 
unique museum without walls. 

5) "Parnassus on Wheels," a 
one-person effort to help combat 
illiteracy and ignorance in North 
Carolina. Like so much of what 
Jerry does, it is a quiet but tangible 
effort to help people reach a poten- 
tial that otherwise might elude 
them. Has Jerry publicized his pro- 
gram? Only through a small sign on 
the dashboard of his car. 

■ A limitation ot this tribute is 
that it cannot capture his most im- 
portant quality - that Jerry is Jerry] 

Alas, there really is only one 
Jerry Shinn, but he will live on. 
Many stories about him also 
should live on. 

For example: Years ago, Con- 
gressman Charlie Rose and then 
UNC President William Friday 
were both on stage at a formal 
gathering of Jerry's in Kenan Au- 
ditorium We do not remember 
who addressed the audience from 
the podium and who nodded in 
complete agreement from his 
chair, but the speaker said, "Every 
campus needs one Jerry Shinn — 
but only one!" 

What will UNCW do now that 
it is are losing its "one"? 

Robert T. Brown is a professor of 
psychology at UNCW. 



Young'uns' memories 

My most vivid memory ot Dr. Shinn is of a particular day in our Old 
Testament religion class. He was lecturing about the Israelites' attack on the 
city of Jericho. He was walking around the large desk in the front of the 
room, demonstrating how the Israelites walked around the wall of Jericho to 
break it down when all of the sudden, with no warning whatsoever, he 
turned around and flipped the desk over in the middle of the room. Needless 
to say, we were all rather surprised and just sat there dumbfounded for a 
while. The demonstration was vivid to say the least. 

That is probably the most striking thing about Dr. Shinn, that he is a 
vivid person. He helped us all realize that we did not have to look across the 
nation or the world to find greatness, hut all we had to do was look in our 
own "backyards" of North Carolina. 

- Renee Moseley Loy, Kernersville 

Oh! Could I tell you stories! But frankly, there is no way I could 
condense all the memories I have of taking Intro to Logic with Dr. Shinn 
and simply offer only one story. 

We were the not-so-vandalistic chalk cult. Anyone who has had logic 
knows what I mean when I refer to Jerry's sidewalk sessions. I remember 
hearing the questioning voices of Shinnless individuals on my way to 
class: "What is this stuff?" ... "Who did this?" While others were in 
their classes taking notes, we were on our knees temporarily etching our- 
selves into the concrete. 

I've never met a person so concerned with the needs of others or so 
patient with freshmen. Then again, I've also never known a man who 
tucked his tie in his breast pocket. 

- Wendy L. Bozeman, Martinez, Ga. 

As fellow students can attest, having Dr. Shinn for a class or merely be- 
ing in the vicinity was an adventure in learning. He knew how to seize the 
attention spans of the MTV generation and offer an alternative to the passive 
reception of information, whether on TV or unfortunately in the classroom. 

The enthusiasm and excitement about learning flowed naturally from 
Dr. Shinn to the many students he touched as scholarship and rational in- 
quiry were taught by example. He awakened minds, loved his neighbor, bore 
much fruit and generally raised hell in the process. 

There is much to be said about the many creations ot Dr. Shinn that 
will have a permanent impact on expanding the quality of education at 
UNCW, but his impact on a personal level has been felt by many and no 
doubt spreads as far as his many former students. 

- John Gully, Hattiesburg, Miss.

Alumni house gets a facelift 

Community effort draws 
hundreds of volunteers 






By Teresa A. mcLamb 

Among her earliest child- 
hood memories, 
Jessiebeth Geddie recalls 
her family proudly reminding her, 
"You know, your grandfather built 
the walls around Wise House and 
Kenan House." 

Even though he died in the 
1930s, long before Geddie was 
born, she feels he would be proud 
of the role his granddaughter is 
playing in the restoration of Wise 
House and its grounds. As chair- 
man of the UNCW Alumni Asso- 
ciation, Geddie is involved with 
approximately 1,000 volunteers 
who are planning one of the city's 
premiere spring events, the Wise 
House Designers Showcase, April 
22 through May 13. 

Backed by university officials 
and the Friends of UNCW in con- 
junction with the Alumni Asso- 
ciation, the Designers Showcase 
brings together the university, 
business and volunteer communi- 
ties and notable celebrities for a 
three-week, multi-event, celebra- 
tion of the grand house which was 
donated to' the university in 1969 
and now houses the offices of 
Alumni Relations. 

Events include daily tours of 
the Designers Showcase, a lecture 
and luncheon with entertainment 
guru Martha Stewart (see sidebar), 
an evening of art, wine and cheese 
with renowned art historian Dr. 
Anthony Janson, a gift shop, lunch 
in a specially arranged Tea Room 
on the Wise House grounds, raffle 
of a custom-made playhouse and 
much more. 

The goal of the Designers 
Showcase is to raise $50,000 to- 
ward repayment of the Alumni 



Association's 
$400,000 restoration 
loan from UCB. 

"We're on our 
second year of this 
loan, and we've 
done very well at 
fund raising. We 
thought this (show- 
case) was some- 
thing all of 
Wilmington could 
participate in," says 
Geddie. Indeed, it 
seems that perhaps 
all of Wilmington 
is involved. 

In mid-Febru- 
ary, 17 local inte- 
rior design firms 
began transforming 
the Neoclassical 
Revival mansion 
for the showcase 
which opens to the 
public daily from 
April 22 through 
May 13. In keeping 
with the elegant 
character of the 
house and its mis- 
tress of 50 years, a gala w 
cially open the showcase on 
Friday, April 21. Guests will be 
treated to a cocktail buffet and 
musical entertainment as well as a 
preview tour of the newly deco- 
rated Wise House. 

Because each room will be 
decorated by a different local inte- 
rior designer, from paint to floor 
coverings to furniture, the array of 
styles and creative ideas can be ex- 
pected to be vast. 

For her design of Miss Jessie 
Wise's bedroom, for example, Ann 




UNCW Chancellor James R. Leutze chats with Cherry 
Woodbury (left}, Wise House events coordinator, and Pat 
Corcoran, Alumni Relations director, in front Wise Alumni 
House which 17 local designers are redecorating this spring. 



,11 offi- 



W. Combs Interiors hopes to create 
an elegant space of soft and muted 
colors to emphasize the peaceful 
nature of the room. 

"I want this to be a classical 
type room with traditional over- 
tones, but not strictly traditional," 
explains Combs of her plans. Be- 
cause she is "interested in dress- 
maker details," Combs plans 
extensive use of fabric including 
moire for the bedspread and a soft 
cotton floral for draperies and up- 
holstered pieces. 

"There's a fireplace which is 



SPRING 95 



lovely" and will he adorned with fresh 
and dried arrangements, she said. 

Like the other designers in- 
volved in the project, Combs feels 
it is important not to tie the decor 
to any particular time period or to 
try to match what may have been 
in the house during the 50 years 
Miss Jessie lived there. They agree 
that the designs should comple- 
ment the house, but should also be 
comfortable and livable. Each also 
describes the look they are seeking 
as "eclectic." 

Combs, for example, plans to 
make use of French, English and 
traditional pieces in antiques and 
reproductions. "I wanted to do 
something that was comfortable 
with the structure," she said. 

Creating a feeling of fun and 
creativity is the goal of The 
Saucepan's design for the Wise 
House pantry. Elizabeth Wright 
and Jane Martin chose wide-striped 
yellow and white wallpaper for a 
light and airy touch to the pantry's 
long hallway. The glass-doored 
pantry shelving will be painted, 
possibly with a yellow interior, and 
stocked with food, pottery and 
other items from the 
Chandler's Wharf kitchen 
shop. 

"We're going to use the 
barred room" where Miss 
Jessie stored her liquor during 
Prohibition. "We think people 
should see it, it's so cute; we'll 
paint and light it. We want it 
to be fun," Martin commented 
about the project. "Elizabeth 
and I have a grand time shop- 
ping at the market and looking 
at pretty things. We want this 
to be creative and fun and to 
give people ideas they can use." 

The women are also ex- 
cited about being part of such 
a massive community effort. 
"We've met people we didn't 
know before. All who are 
working on the show want 
their part to be special, not for 
themselves, but so that they 
do not let down the others. 
It's wonderful for the college," 
she says, referring to UNCW 



as many long-time residents do. 
"The college is becoming more ol 
an entity in this community, and I 
think we've got something here at 
the Wise House that we can be 
proud of," Martin said to explain 
their involvement. 

The Saucepan's design incor- 
porates pots and pans, pottery and 
other utensils which can be taken 
directly into the kitchen and used. 
They've conferred with Cranford 
Coleman Interiors who has under- 
taken decoration of the newly mod- 
ernized kitchen to assure that the 
pantry's design complements the 
kitchen's. They're also seeking a 
clean, simple look. 

"The room is too small to fuss 
it up; we want to have it clean 
looking ... not contemporary and 
not country, but more eclectic. A 
house can be boring it you make it 
all English country or more country 
or whatever. We hope it looks like 
someone's collection: pottery, Ital- 
ian, Portuguese, American, pretty 
things," Martin says. 

"We don't want it to look like 
a store. When I go to someone's 
home I like to look at what they're 




Showcase design coordinator, Suzanne C. Moss, talks 
with painters who are brightening the dark wooden 
paneling of the Wise Alumni House foyer. 



SPRING 95 



collecting, and we want this to he 
that kind of home, where you col- 
lect pretty things which are used as 
part ot your lives every day." 

In the small sitting area which 
is believed to have been Miss 
Jessie's favorite room, Dyneane's 
Designs plans a "ladies retreat with 
warm colors to complement the 
marble fireplace." Dyneane Dietz 
plans to use a fabric with large 
magnolia blossoms and a very soft 
maize color on the walls to accom- 
plish coziness and warmth. 

"This is a place to enjoy quiet 
time alone," says Dietz. She envi- 
sions a hooked rug on the floor. 
Dietz plans a tea table set tor after- 
noon tea as well as a skirted table 
lined with family photos and other 
items "the lady of the house would 
like to have around her in a room 
that she spent a lot ot time in." 

These designers and the others 
donating their time and services 
are responsible for all the work that 
goes into the room as well as the 
restoration of it to its original con- 
dition, it needed, says Cherry 
Woodbury, Wise House events co- 
ordinator. 

Dietz points out that de- 
signers are getting help from 
other sources who are donat- 
ing time and services: the 
flowers, tor example. Bouquets 
Ltd. partners Louise Gorham 
and Marie Kahn, along with 
Linda Nance, are donating 
their expertise to floral designs 
throughout Wise House as 
well as donating the finished 
arrangements tor the Martha 
Stewart luncheon. 

"We're a small business," 
says Gorham, "but we want to 
continue our volunteer in- 
volvement." 

Volunteer commitment 
and enthusiasm at its pinnacle 
is what the Designers Show- 
case may represent. At the 
[ center is Friends of UNCW, 
"people in the community 
who are not alumni but who 
care about the university and 
want to make it better," says 
its president, Connie Parker.

UNCW Magazine 



Showcase to star 
Martha Stewart 



Former Wall Street stockbroker turned lifestyle mogul, Martha 
Stewart will appear at UNCW in conjunction with Wise House 
Designers Showcase. In her only North Carolina appearance of 1995, 
Stewart will be guest at a luncheon April 27 followed by an hour-long 
lecture she calls "Entertaining with Style." 

Stewart's unique 
hands-on approach to 
carefree yet elegant liv- 
ing has earned her a 
dedicated following 
through her weekly na- 
tional television series 
"Martha Stewart Liv- 
ing" and the magazine 
of the same name. In 
December, she 

launched her newest 
magazine Martha Stew- 
art Living Weddings. 

Stewart's first book 
Entertaining in 1982 was 
quickly followed by 
cookbooks, wedding 
planners, decorating 
and gardening books. 
The menu for her sold- 

out luncheon appearance, catered by ARA, will be from her own 
cookbooks and will feature pork, a locally important product. 

Sponsored by the UNCW Alumni Association and the Friends of 
UNCW, Stewart's appearance is appropriate to the Designer Show- 
case which emphasizes the many ways home space can be treated. 
Stewart's body of work includes instructional videos, two of which are 
also appropriate to Showcase activities: "Renovating with Style" and 
"Decorative Finishes." These were released with the publication of 
the book New Old House in 1992. 

Tickets to Stewart's lecture, at 2 p.m. in Kenan Auditorium, are 
available through the box office at (910) 395-3500. 

Thanks to generous underwriting by Harris Teeter, North Caro- 
lina Pork Producers Association, Rainbow Bay Crafts and the Ocean 
Princess Inn at Kure Beach, substantial proceeds from Stewart's 
appearance will go toward repayment of the Alumni Association's 
$400,000 renovation loan with United Carolina Bank.

lized in areas where funding is not 
available." With a board of 30 and 
general membership of about 200, 
the Friends have established grants 
and scholarships for the university. 

When approached about taking 
on the Showcase as a fund-raiser, 
the Friends were excited about the 
prospect, Parker says. They imme- 
diately planned to involve other 
community organizations, taking 
advantage of the tremendous pool 
of volunteer talent in Wilmington. 
Various chairmen were selected 
from within the Friends who then 
selected others from the community 
to help. 

"Volunteers poured in from ev- 
erywhere," says Parker. "This is the 
first major undertaking we've de- 
cided to do because of the support 
of the Alumni Association, and our 
members feel strongly about it. Our 
board has members from Junior 
Sorosis, North Carolina Sorosis, 
Junior League and the Wilmington 
Women's Club. They put volun- 
teers in from the beginning, then 
their contacts brought in other 
people. I get calls every other day 
from someone who wants to help." 

Among groups and individuals 
who have volunteered to host and 
assist with the Designers Showcase 
are the Medical Auxiliary, Great 
Oaks Garden Club, Oleander Gar- 
den Club, American Association of 
University Women, the Pilot Club, 
University Women from UNCW, 
Association of Retired Faculty of 
UNCW, Links Organization, New- 
comers Club and senior citizens. 

"We thought that this might 
happen," says Parker, "but it was 
really nice to see it. I'm just con- 
cerned that someone might have 
called to volunteer and may have 
been accidentally left out." 

Another organization assisting 
with the Designers Showcase is the 
Cape Fear Garden Club which do- 
nated $6,000 for the restoration of 
the Wise House's sunken garden.

Haskell have begun preliminary 
work to bring the garden to life. 
Plans include annuals, boxwood 
and maybe an ornamental piece for 
the center. New stonework based 
on architectural planning has been 
added; no old photos of the garden 
have been found. 

A number of special events will 
be held in conjunction with the 
Showcase. 

Next door in Kenan House, the 
university will display once again 
Young Woman Defending Herself 
Against Eros (1880), perhaps the 
best work by the most prominent 
French salon painter of the mid- to 
late- 19th century, William 
Bouguereau ( 1825-1905). This 
painting, which has been on loan 
to the N.C. Museum of Art, and 
others currently hanging in Kenan 
House will be discussed by Dr. An- 
thony Janson, former curator of the 
Museum of Art and visiting profes- 
sor at UNCW, during "Art, Wine 
& Cheese," on Thursday, May 1 1 . 

"They all aspired to a classical 
style reminiscent of Raphael, but 
none looked like Raphael, so they 
practiced a 19th century version of 
a classical style," says Dr. Janson, 
whose newest revision of his late 
father's definitive History of Art 
was published earlier this year. 
"This is actually one of 
Bouguereau's most delightful paint- 
ings. It's lighthearted, but not in a 
silly way. It's quite charming." 

The painting originally came 
to Kenan House as a gift from Mary 
Lily Kenan Flagler to her sister, 
Sarah Graham Kenan, who had 
admired it. It was donated to 
UNCW along with the house in 
1969 and is still owned by the uni- 
versity which loaned the work to 
the N.C. Museum of Art in 1993 
with Janson's help. 

"1 can tell you, it is one of the 
most popular paintings now on 
view in the museum," he adds. 

Organizers of the Wise House 
Designers Showcase hope there'll 
be something for almost everyone 
in the many other events planned. 
A "gorgeous playhouse," built by 
alumni Jim Farlow and John Pol- 



lard of materials donated by Lowe's 
Stores Inc. of Wilmington, is being 
raffled at the Showcase. Geddie says 
the house, which has a bay window 
and dormers, can be viewed behind 
Wise House. 

Also behind the house, in the 
Carriage House and garage will be a 
gift shop with wares from several 
local gift and variety shops includ- 
ing A Proper Garden, Abigails, 
Temptations, the Sterling House 
and possibh I he I ishei man's \\ ife 
and the Red Dinette. Prints of the 
Wise House watercolor by Gladys 
Faris will be on sale as will 
notecards of the same design. 

"We'll have cookbooks, grand- 
parents books and much more," 
says Geddie. 

For those who want to spend 
a leisurely day touring the house, 
lunch will be available in a spe- 
cially created Tea Room, actually 
a big white tent in the backyard 
of the house. ARA, which pro- 
vides food service for the univer- 
sity, will cater gourmet boxed 
lunches for the event each day 
except Sunday when, Woodbury 
says, a traditional Southern fam- 
ily-style lunch is planned. 

Even more events, such as 
bridal and herb workshops, are in 
the planning stages and will be an- 
nounced through the media. 



While the Designers Showcase 
is an important fund raiser for the 
Alumni Association, it may be an 
even more importan! introduction 
of the Wise House to the local 
community. The house is much 
more than an office space for 
Alumni Relations. It is a cultural 
treasure, rich in stones of a gener- 
ous mistress and a gracious style of 
living. It is also an architectural 
treasure with the dominant ionic 
columns, the rich wood paneling, 
marble mantels and prominent 
stained glass window. 

1 1 is also a house for t he 
community. 

"The university wants to share- 
Wise House with the community," 
says Woodbury. "It is ideal for 
graduation parties, reunions, wed- 
dings, just as it is for alumni func- 
tions and the foundation board 
meetings." 

The renovated modern kitchen 
and two handicap access bathrooms 
on the first floor combine modern 
with the charm of the old. With its 
elegant sun porch, long staircase 
and second-story balcony, the 
house is indeed ideal tor formal and 
informal functions. 

The invitation has been issued. 
Now is the time to reserve your 
ticket to visit the community's 
newest home.

By Robin Hamm 

While it's no secret 
UNCW's reputation is 
growing, at least one 
area official thinks that hosting the 
1995 NCAA Women's Golf Cham- 
pionships will put the university in 
the "big leagues." This will be the 
first-ever NCAA Division 1 cham- 
pionship to be held in Wilmington. 

The National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association Women's Golf 
Championships began in 1982 and 
is the most prestigious collegiate 
women's tournament in the coun- 
try. UNCW was honored to be se- 
lected as host of the 1995 NCAA 
Women's Golf Championships, 
May 2 1-27, which will draw the top 
102 collegiate women golfers in the 
nation. 



The NCAA only gives this op- 
portunity to outstanding schools 
which have met certain levels of 
achievement in specified areas. 
The NCAA focuses on graduation 
rates of athletes in an NCAA pro- 
gram and high academic eligibility 
standards toi athletes. In a 1 994 re- 
port the UNCW graduation rate 
for athletes was 76 percent (over a 
six-year period). 

"It is cer- 
tainly an honor," 
UNCW women's 
golf coach Jan 
Mann said of 
hosting the tour- 
nament. 

It will feature 
the top 18 




women's collegiate golf teams in 
the country as well as some indi- 
vidual qualifiers. 

"These players are the cream of 
the crop," Mann said. "Many of 
them have the potential to go on 
to professional careers in golf." She 
believes that several of the young 
women who will be playing, such as 
Wendy Ward of Arizona State Uni- 
versity, have Ladies Professional 
Golf Association (LPGA) potential. 

Joe Browning, UNCW's sports 
information director, has compiled 
a list of prospective teams expected 
to attend the tournament in May. 
The following list is based on those 
teams participating in NCAA tour- 
naments over the past five years as 
well as current statistics.

Mann, who is only the second 
coach for the Lady Seahawks since 
the program began in 1978, has 
had a major role in organizing the 
tournament. She feels that it will 
he very instrumental in recruiting 
and promotion of the UNCW 
golf program. 

UNCW's women golfers will 
not be playing in the tournament; 
however, the team will play a vital 
role by assisting the visiting play- 
ers. Freshman Nicolle Flood of 
Gloversville, N.Y., who has already 
made an impact on the Lady Sea- 
hawks as UNCW's top finisher in 
all but one of the fall tournaments, 
says she feels 
UNCW's team can 
learn from this ex- 
perience. Since 
UNCW is still a 
young team, Flood 
believes, "Hosting 
the NCAA tour- 
nament will give 
us the experience 
we'll need to be- 
come future con- 
tenders." 

Paul Miller, 
UNCW director of 



athletics, said the tournament is 
one of the most exciting things to 
happen to UNCW's athletic de- 
partment. 

"It btings great notoriety to 
our campus," Miller said. "One 
million dollars in advertising 
couldn't buy the exposure the uni- 
versity will receive from hosting 
this golt tournament." 

Participating universities seem 
to be just as excited about Wilm- 
ington's hosting the tournament as 
UNCW officials. When Miller met 
with participating university ad- 
ministrators during the preview 
tournament hosted in the fall he 
observed, "They were ecstatic 
about the tournament." Many of 
them had attended or heard of the 
great success at the Northern 
Telecom National Collegiate 
Women's Golf Invitational hosted 
by UNCW in November. 

Miller said the community has 
been especially supportive of the 
tournament. There will be at least 
150 volunteers for concessions, 
traffic control, ticket sales, general 
information and othet services. 

"The community has rallied 
around UNCW (for the tourna- 
ment)," Miller says, "They're so 
excited about helping." Nettie 
McKenney, the volunteer chair, 
has had an overwhelming re- 
sponse from volunteers. Miller 
says, "The fact that a prestigious 
club like Landfall has volunteered 
its course is indicative of the 



SPRING 95 



community s support. 

As for the city of Wilmington, 
it can expect plenty of visitors. The 
tournament will provide just an- 
other great excuse for inlanders to 
get away to Wilmington's beautiful 
coast for Memorial Day weekend. 
The exposure Wilmington will re- 
ceive from national golf magazines 



fW 




is also expected 
to draw a crowd 
of first-time visi- 
tors especially 
with the added 
prestige of 
Landfall's in- 
volvement. 

"This tour- 
nament will 

bring people from all over the 
country," Donna Cameron, tourna- 
ment directot, says. "It gives Wilm- 
ington the opportunity to be 
showcased and will bring national 
prominence to southeastern North 
Carolina." 

Cameron, who organized the 
successful Golf Invitational in No- 
vember, is expecting approxi- 
mately 500 people a day to attend 
the tournament, but she hopes to 
have more. 

"We invite all alumni to come 
share in this exciting event," Cam- 
eron says. "There will be an alumni 
heade]uarters where alumni from all 
schools will have a chance to 
mingle and meet the players." 

Sporting events are an excel- 
lent tactic for a town to receive na- 
tional exposure. Connie Majure, 
executive director 
of the Greater 
Wilmington Cham- 
ber of Commerce, 
points out that 
Wilmington will 
benefit from that 
exposure. 

Dr. William 
Hall, director of the 
UNCW Center for 
Business and Eco- 
nomics Services, 
has calculated that 
the tournament will

bring a minimum of a half 
million dollars into 
Wilmington's economy in 
eight days. 

There is also the image 
aspect to consider. 

"The fact that the uni- 
versity is hosting the tourna- 
ment puts UNCW in the big 
leagues," said Majure. 

The tournament will be 
nationally televised on Prime 
Sports Network which will 
give Wilmington an unsolic- 
ited good critique. "This isn't 
like an advertisement we 
would produce to promote 
Wilmington ... this is the 
kind of coverage we couldn't buy," 
says Majure, because it's coming 
from a national outside source. 

Landfall is another reason why 
the NCAA selected Wilmington as 
the sight of the tournament. Ac- 
cording to Coach Mann, "The fa- 
cility is an excellent site for a 
championship tournament." 

The community will be closing 
its Pete Dye Course for the entire 
week of the tournament. However, 
the Nicklaus Course will still be

open to members and their guests. 
Though members of Landfall may 
miss playing on the course, they are 
pleased to have the opportunity to 
host the NCAA tournament. 

"The community is excited 
about having the tournament. All of 
our Landfall members and residents 
are ready to assist the tournament in 
any way possible," Landfall general 
manager Gary Doyle says. He 
pointed out they have received only 
positive responses from all over east- 
ern North Carolina. 

Landfall is also donat- 
ing its billboard overlook- 
ing the riverfront in 
downtown Wilmington to 
promote the tournament. 
Landfall will obviously gain 
national attention for its 
role in the tournament, 
however, Doyle claims 
that's not their reason for 
volunteering their facilities. 
"We are truly looking at 
this as a community-wide ef- 
fort," says Doyle. "Landfall is 
offering its course to serve 
the community as a good 
citizen." Russ Miller, director 
of golf; Gary Smither, direc- 
tor of golf course operations; 
and Margot Abramovitch, 
Landfall coordinator, will be 
working in conjunction 
with UNCW to plan the 
tournament.

The players will arrive in 
Wilmington on May 21 in time for 
a few practice rounds; the first 
round of the tournament will begin 
on May 24 with an 8 a.m. tee time. 
The final round will begin at 7:30 
a.m. May 27. 

In addition to the tournament, 
several special events are scheduled 
throughout the week of May 21-27. 
A kick-off party for all the partici- 
pants, hosted by Ping, will be held 
on the USS North Carolina Battle- 
ship Memorial. 

Among the events open to 
the public is the YES (Youth Edu- 
cation through Sports) Clinic on 
Sunday, May 21. The clinic, 
headed by Coach Mann and led 
by volunteer coaches and players, 
will involve 120 Wilmington-area 
children and their parents. The 
clinic is held at each NCAA 
tournament event to educate 
children about athletics, disci- 
pline and nutrition. 

The cost of admission to the 
tournament is $5 daily or $12 for a 
tournament pass. Parking has not 
yet been decided, but a free shuttle 
to and from the course will be pro- 
vided by UNCW. Tickets will be 
sold in advance and at the shuttle 
stations. Ticket information and 
other details concerning the tour- 
nament can be obtained by calling

ALUMNI PROFILE 



All the world 
is a textbook 
for this alum 

by Shannon vano 

"She is my all-time favorite teacher." 

"She makes learning fun ." 

"She'll do anything to help you out." 



w 



ho could this be, you 
ask? Why it is none 
other than UNCW 



alumna Richelle Bragg Dombroski. 

Dombroski, a Wilmington na- 
tive, graduated from UNCW in 1984 
with a bachelor of arts degree in his- 
tory and teaching certification. 

As a student at UNCW, she 
worked in the Development Office 
for three years. While there, she 
helped set up the Ambassadors Pro- 
gram that is still active on campus. 

"Richelle was very instrumental 
in doing the research for the Ambas- 
sadors Program and getting it started. 
She is a very determined worker," 
Patsy Larrick of University Advance- 
ment recalled. 

Her determination proved to be 
essential in acquiring her first job at 
Williston Junior High School in 
Wilmington. There she taught 
eighth and ninth grade North Caro- 
lina history and civics and coached 
cheerleading. 

In 1987, after just two years on 
the job, she was one of five teachers 
selected for a month of special train- 
ing with the National Geographic 
Society in Washington, D.C. With 
58 other teachers from across the 
country, Dombroski learned how to 
teach geography and incorporate it 
into a social studies program. One 
year later, she was hired as a geogra- 
phy teacher at Laney High School. 

That was where Dombroski 
started a geography program called 
"Geo Teaching." 

"It is the one lesson that stu- 
dents ask me about the first day of 




Richelle Bragg Dombroski '84 leads a geography lesson at Laney High School She 
has received notional recognition for her innovative teaching methods 



class because former students have 
discussed the experience," she says. 

Her high school students design 
and teach geography lessons to el- 
ementary students in grades K-5. 

"This lesson promotes coopera- 
tion among high school and elemen- 
tary students and increases 
appreciation of our global society. 
This project encourages leader- 
ship roles among students," 
Dombroski says. 

"Geo Teaching," along with 
many other innovative lessons 
Dombroski teaches, helped her win 
the State Farm Good Neighbor 
Award in 1994, which brought her 
national recognition for her teach- 
ing of geography. State Farm looks 
for teachers from all levels of pri- 
mary and secondary education who 
are innovators in their field and 
who are dedicated to furthering ex- 
cellence in teaching. 

State Farm honors each winning 
teacher with a $5,000 contribution 
to the educational institution of his 
or her choice, along with a presenta- 
tion of the award at a school board 
meeting in each teacher's town. In 
addition to providing broad-based 
recognition of Good Neighbor 
Award recipients, State Farm runs 
national print advertising which fea- 



tures each teacher and the innova- 
tion for which that teacher is being 
honored. Dombroski was featured 
with several other recipients in 
National Geographic magazine. The 
ad included her picture as well as a 
description of her accomplishment. 

The $5,000 Dombroski was 
awarded from State Farm went to 
Laney High School where she is still 
teaching. With this money, Laney 
was able to purchase a modem to 
hook up to Dombroski's computer in 
her classroom. This allows 
Dombroski's students to communi- 
cate with other students around 
the world. 

"The publicity for Laney has 
been wonderful. This award was great 
for the school," Dombroski says. 

Dombroski's record speaks for 
itself through national awards and 
recognition, but she has also re- 
ceived special appreciation from 
her students. 

One of her students, Ben Stout, 
a senior and student assistant in her 
world geography class, says, "Mrs. 
Dombroski is the best teacher I've 
ever had." 

Mandy McKoy, also a senior, 
adds, "She gave me a new concept 
of not only teaching, but learning 
as well."

Jarman turns animation 
into art with computers 



By Karey Garland 

For most people, sitting in 
front of a computer is like 
punching a tedious nine-to- 
five time clock. For computer ani- 
mator, Joey Jarman, he says, "It's 
like playing God." 

A New Bern native, Jarman 
came to UNCW for what he 
called "more individualized learn- 
ing" in computer science, only to 
carry this highly attractive quality 
into his own life as he founded 
J&.K Graphics in 1989. With a 
talent and fascination for com- 
puters and conventional art since 
age 12, Jarman established a 
graphics company specializing in 
three- dimensional computerized 
animation. 

As an adolescent, computer 
interest peaked for Jarman when 



his father's knowledge of what he 
calls "circuitry, schematics and 
building things from scratch" be- 
came his own. From there, it was 
his first computer then formal 
training from some of his favorite 
UNCW professors, Dr. James Nel- 
son and Dr. Fletcher Norris. All it 
took were a few clients to come to 
him just six months before gradua- 
tion for Jarman's hobby of arts and 
graphics to become a business that 
he says "just kind of snowballed." 

He joined forces with another 
UNCW graduate, Penny N. 
Kirkley '88, to form J&K Graphics. 
Kirkley handles sales and market- 
ing and other business-related 
matters for the firm. 

Impressed and inspired by stop 
animation films like "The Night- 



mare Before Christmas," Jarman 
sits at his work station in the base- 
ment of the First Union high-rise 
in downtown Wilmington, hoping 
to find time to make his own short 
animated films. Before him, one of 
his many television screens displays 
the virtual reality of an auditorium 
he created for George Lucas's film 
"Radioland Murders." 

Jarman said his biggest and 
most challenging project was when 
he turned geometrical equations 
into an auditorium with pie-shaped 
rooms and used cubes, spheres, cal- 
culus and physics to create charac- 
ters that "fall to their death." 
"Radioland" was just one instance 
where Jarman sat in front of a com- 
puter until three o'clock in the 
morning "playing God." 



SPRING 95 



H 



SPRING 95 



An experience he refers to is 
bringing life to an abstract idea like 
"Man's Frailty on Earth." This was 
a storyline for one of Jarman's 
former projects. 

For as much math as Jarman 
runs across everyday, writing plays 
a role in his creativity as well: "I've 
been concentrating on storyline for 
the last couple of years, using ab- 
stract objects to represent people 
for the storytelling." 

This is what makes Jarman's 
work well rounded. He can talk 
numbers, upgrade and maintain his 
own hard- and software, and still 
make his words as life-like as the 
three-dimensional objects on his 
computer screen. 

With such a profile, it's hard to 
believe Jarman's original intentions 
were in computer programming. 

"Starting my own business was 
not what I intended to do," Jarman 
says. "People told me I was crazy. 



Among J&.K Graphic's other 
projects are a 60-second commer- 
cial promoting UNCW, a 15-sec- 
ond animation that opened up a 
South Carolina hockey team's 
game, animated logos for com- 
mercials, recycling commercials 
and cataloging some 150 personal 
project ideas. All this, and 
Jarman is still hoping to make his 
own computer-animated film in 
time to meet an April deadline 
tor the industry's largest conven- 
tion in August. 

Also, because of the top-qual- 
ity work that J&.K Graphics pro- 
vides, Jarman says that Lucas has 
asked for his help for future "Star 
Wars" ventures, and an agent has 
contacted him about doing anima- 
tion tor openings shows for the en- 
tire East Coast hockey league. 

As an animator, Jarman ad- 
mits that his work may be associ- 
ated with the software he uses and 
the fact that his equipment is 
"among the best in the world 
as far as output right now," 
but he says that is not what 
makes his computer anima- 
tions so impressive. 

"Animation is about 
bringing something to life," 
he says. "It's the way it moves 
that makes you believe that it 
is alive. If it's unnatural, it 
doesn't make you believe." 

Therefore, Jarman con- 
cludes that "it's not the soft- 
ware" a graphic artist must 
have, "it's an eye for motion 
and how things work to- 
gether." He must study move- 
ment and use his computer, 
which Jarman refers to as "an 
electronic paintbrush" in or- 
der to make mathematical cal- 
culations come to life. It isn't 
easy, as Jarman tells about 
how the animators for "Juras- 
sic Park" pretended to be di- 
nosaurs, "snooping around," 
so they could bring existence 
to the extinct. 

But, much of what Jarman UNCW alumni Joey Jarman is practically surrounded by 
creates has never lived. to turn equations into artwork. 



They told me to go work for 
somebody else." In starting J&.K 
Graphics, Jarman says he even 
thought about what he would do 
"if the bottom tell out." But, the 
bottom is nowhere to be found tor 
J&.K; only the top. 

Jarman refers to himself as 
"kind of a one-man band" who 
has been offered big things by 
"animation houses around the 
country." But bigger doesn't nec- 
essarily mean better. Jarman 
prides J&.K Graphics on being 
able to provide his clients with 
more personalized service and 
those "added touches they didn't 
expect." Jarman admits he goes 
"overboard to give 'em that MTV 
look, ESPN look or whatever else 
it is they want." 

Clearly, Joey Jarman is an in- 
novator who firmly believes there 
is more to life than, as he says,

One of life's big challenges 



How to pay the college tuition bills 




By Sue Cause 

If you would rather suffer 
through two root canals 
and back surgery than 
confront the process of fi- 
nancing your child's college 
education, you probably 
aren't alone. The thought 
of coming up with 
a minimum of 
$30,000 is 
enough to 
make most 
parents break out 
in a cold sweat. 

College tuition costs continue to 
spiral upwards with no ceiling in 
sight. How to pay for a college edu- 
cation is one of the most weighty 
challenges facing families today. 

But, it is a surmountable chal- 
lenge, as advice and help abound. So 
do sources for financial assistance - 
whether you start saving the day your 
child is born or begin looking at fi- 
nancing programs during your child's 
senior year in high school. 

Under ideal conditions, a family 
begins saving as soon as it can by es- 
tablishing some kind of college edu- 
cation account. 

"It's never too early to start. It 
could be Zero Coupons starting as 
early as newborns," says Cheryl 
Hunter '89, a registered sales assis- 
tant with Dean Witter Reynolds 
Inc. in Wilmington. "If you start in- 
vesting when your child is really 
young, even if you just put up $100 
a month or a quarter, you can build 
up a good financial backing for a 
college education." 

Government-backed Zero Cou- 
pon Treasury STRIPS (Separate 
Trading of Registered Interest and 
Principal Securities) are a popular 
savings vehicle for college educations. 

"Their main advantage is safety 
because they are a government-re- 
lated security. They tend to be liquid; 
they are ready when you are; and you 
can work them into your plan with 



different 
maturities," Hunter says. 

Setting up a custodial account to 
hold your child's assets until he or 
she reaches college age is often advised. 
Custodial accounts are established 
under the Uniform Gifts to Minors 
Act or the Uniform Transfers to 
Minor Act and may be established 
through financial institutions or 
investment firms. The account al- 
lows investment income to be taxed 
at the child's income rate rather than 
at the working adult's income level. 

A variety of investment vehicles, 
such as stocks, bonds, CDs and Zero 
Coupons, may be placed in a custo- 
dial account, but certain kinds of 
high risk investments, such as op- 
tions, may not be part of the account, 
notes Hunter. 

A parent may place up to 
$10,000 a year in a child's custo- 
dial account without getting into 
tax consequences, adds Hunter, 
and grandparents may also estab- 
lish an account. 

If saving for a college education 
is not an option, there are other ways to 
take the sting out of the cost of tuition. 

"In my household, we don't save 
for college. We go out and finance 
it," says Doug Johnson, associate di- 
rector of admissions at UNCW. And, 
if parents balk at diat notion, Johnson 
likens it to financing a new car. 



"I always tell parents, especially 
those considering UNCW, to look at 

the car you are driving. Basically, 
the college education is 
leaper than your car, so if 
you can afford that car, 
you can afford to pay 
for your child's edu- 
cation," he says. 
Several busi- 
nesses help families 
finance college costs 
trough level monthly pay- 
ments, and many colleges work 
with a specific firm or offer their 
own payment plan. UNCW has a 
contract with AMS (Academic 
Management Services). 

"I really recommend the AMS 
plan for someone who hasn't saved. 
You just don't buy a car during the 
time your child is going to school, 
and you make sure your car is paid 
off," says Johnson. "Of course, not 
everyone can do that, but it's a lot 
easier than having to come up with 
$1,500 ot $3,400 at one time." 

A payment plan may be used in 
conjunction with other financial 
aid, notes Peter D'Annibale, 
UNCW's director of financial aid. 
The amount of financial aid would 
be applied to the student's bill, and 
the remainder would be financed 
through the payment plan. 

Another popular financing op- 
tion is a home equity line of credit or 
an equity line of credit from a bank. 

"The home equity line of credit 
is a great way to borrow because it 
allows a lot of flexibility in how you 
advance the funds," says Paul 
McCombie '86, vice president for 
Wachovia Bank in Wilmington. 
"The bank sets up a certain line of 
credit based on your personal cash 
flow and the equity that you have in 
your home, and you could advance 
up to that credit limit as you need it. 
Depending on your tax situation, you 
may have some tax advantages, be-

cause the interest, assuming that you 
itemize deductions, should he deduct- 
ible just like your mortgage interest." 

Line of credit loans offer flex- 
ible repayment based on a certain 
percentage of the outstanding bal- 
ance, and the borrower pays interest 
only on what has been borrowed. 
Interest rates are variable; it the line 
is for $15,000 or more the rate is 
typically prime plus one percent, 
says McCombie. 

An installment loan from a 
bank is another financing possibil- 
ity. The loan may be secured or un- 
secured, and repayment is based on 
the amount borrowed and the 
monthly payment the borrower 
wishes to assume. 

Private scholarships provide an- 
other source of tuition money. Ac- 
cording to The Scholarship Book 
(Fourth Edition; 1993) by Daniel 
Cassidy, "The National Commission 
on Student Financial Assistance, a 
U.S. Congressional Subcommittee, 
found that while there was more 
than $7 billion available to students 
from corporations, only $400 million 
was used, some $6.6 billion went un- 
claimed, not because people were 
unqualified, but because they didn't 
know where to look." 

UNCW's D'Annibale agrees 
many scholarships go unclaimed in 
part, he believes, because some do- 
nors are very specific about the type 
of candidate to receive the award, 
and the right candidates do not find 
out about the scholarship. 

But D'Annibale cautions that 
while some professional scholarship 
search firms are very reputable, 
others are not. He hopes to estab- 
lish a scholarship search program at 
the university called STAR (Stu- 
dent Aid Resource Center). It 
funds for the center are approved, 
the university would contract with 
a reputable search firm; maintain 
oversight of the firm's activities; 
and offer the search services to stu- 
dents and the community. 

Federal and state financial aid 
programs plus university grants and 
scholarships bring considerable funds 
to the college education finance 
equation. To apply for financial aid, 



students must first till out the Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid 
(FAFSA) form in January or Febru- 
ary for the next college year. Forms 
are available from high school 
guidance offices and from college 
financial aid offices. 

"This is were it all begins," ex- 
plains D'Annibale. "Even when you 
are applying tor scholarships and it is 
not involving federal aid, start out 
with FAFSA. You may be pleasantly 
surprised. FAFSA will automatically 
apply you tor federal loans, federal 
grants, federal work-study programs, 
state grants, and we also use it for 
some of our UNCW scholarships." 

D'Annibale stresses the need 
for families to apply for aid early, 
which also means not waiting until 
the last minute to prepare income 
tax statements. 

"I recommend that parent and 
student do all of the application pro- 
cess together. The student should 
know what was filed when, and have 
a part in it," advises D'Annibale. 
"Keep a copy of everything you have 
ever received or sent to a college and 
follow up it you haven't heard from a 
school in five or six weeks after 
you submitted the documents." 

Some of the major federal finan- 
cial aid programs are the Pell Grant, 
Supplemental Educational Opportu- 
nity Grant Program, Perkins Loan, 
Stafford Loan, PLUS Loan and work- 
study program. 

Financial aid programs provided 
by states vary. N.C Student Incen- 
tive Grants are funds sent to institu- 
tions and are distributed to the 
neediest students, such as those 
whose parents can contribute less 
than $600 per year. The N.C. Leg- 
islative Tuition Grant is avail- 
able to residents 



enrolled full time in private col- 
leges or universities in the state. 
These awards are not need based 
and are subject to state budget re- 
ductions. The expected amount in 
1995-96 is $1,250. 

Most universities, including 
UNCW, provide various named 
grants, scholarships and athletic 
scholarships. UNCW also otters a 
work assist program through the stu- 
dent employment office. It work is a 
part of a student's college financing 
plan, UNCW administrators agree, 
make sure the time spent on the job 
is limited, preferably no more than 
20 hours per week. 

Of course, academic ability 
plays a significant role in the fi- 
nancing picture. Students who gear 
up academically are more likely to 
receive some academic scholarship 
assistance. 

"You have to qualify first," 
insists Ron Whittaker, director of 
admissions and registrar at UNCW. 
"I recommend that students do as 
well academically as they possibly 
can. That includes prior to taking 
the SAT, getting the review book 
and familiarizing themselves with 
standardized tests. Take the tests as 
early and as often as possible. So 
many students think it is a one- 
shot deal." 

Adds D'Annibale, "It you are a 
good student, you have good grades 
and good community affiliations, you 
definitely have to toot your own 
horn and let people know. Go to 
your community, to churches, to em- 
ployers and find out it there are 
scholarships or loans available 

through them. I've seen a lot ot 
scholarships come out of 
the community."

CHARTING the CURRENTS of CHANGE 



UNCW's Capital Campaign 
reached its $15 million 
goal two years ahead of 
schedule, and there's no stopping 
the momentum that began in 
April 1992 to generate the addi- 
tional money needed to enrich the 
educational and cultural offerings 
at the University of North Carolina 
at Wilmington. 

In November, the UNCW 
Board of Trustees agreed to raise the 
goal to $25 million. 

William G. Anlyan, vice chancel- 
lor for University Advancement, said 
the amount was increased because "the 
university continues to be under- 
endowed and the support of the com- 
munity has been so overwhelming." 

The many businesses and indi- 
viduals who have made large contri- 
butions to the capital campaign in 
recent months indicate that more 
and more people realize the 
university's need to attract the best 
faculty and students in order to re- 
main competitive in the next cen- 
tury and to serve the growing needs 
of the region. 




Robert Warwick, co-chairman of UNCW's Capital Campaign with Dan 
Cameron, was recognized at a gala announcing that the $15 million 
campaign goal had been reached and increased to $25 million. 



Centura Bank pledged $50,000 
to establish the Centura Bank Fac- 
ulty Development Endowment 
Fund at UNCW. The money will be 
paid equally over a five-year term. 

"This is the first gift of this 
magnitude strictly tor faculty 
development," said Provost 
Marvin Moss. 

Bedford Fair, a national 
women's fashion catalog company, 
made a $30,000 donation to 
UNCW to establish a permanent 
endowment fund. 

Eligible students must be New 
Hanover County high school 
graduates, been active in the com- 
munity, have a 3.0 or better grade 
point average and have an estab- 
lished financial need. 

Peoples Savings Bank estab- 
lished a $25,000 permanent 
endowment, earmarked for 
undergraduate academic schol- 
arships in the Cameron School 
of Business Administration. 

Scholarship recipients will be 
chosen by the Cameron School 
dean, with 
preference 
given to stu- 
dents from 
New Han- 
over or 
Pender 
counties 
majoring in 
economics 
or finance. 
The schol- 
arship will 
be awarded 
annually 
a n d will 
be renew- 
able. 



Wilmington West Rotary 
Club established a $25,000 schol- 
arship fund for UNCW. President 
Bill Maus presented the first $5,000 
installment of the endowed fund in 
November. 

Mr. and Mrs. Allan Wilson 
donated $20,000 to establish the 
Allan Wilson Scholarship at 
UNCW. 

Cooperative Bank For Savings 
and Lowe's Stores Inc. each 
contributed $15,000 for the reno- 
vation of Wise Alumni House. 

The money will go toward 
repayment of the UNCW 
Alumni Association's $400,000 
renovation loan with United 
Carolina Bank. 

National Spinning Company, 
a leading U.S. yarn manufacturer, 
donated $15,000 to create an 
endowed scholarship fund for stu- 
dents who are children of eligible 
employees. It there are none 
to apply, the scholarship may be 
awarded to students in south- 
eastern North Carolina. 

Several new endowed schol- 
arships have been established. 
Wanda Moore donated $15,000 
in memory of her husband, Dr. 
Robert A. Moore, Jr., to support 
the merit scholarship program 
which will enable UNCW to at- 
tract and retain additional aca- 
demically strong students. 

Retired UNCW faculty 
member, Betty Holden Stike, 
donated $10,000 to establish an 
endowment for the Donald R. 
Watson School of Education. 

Margaret and Edward 
Barclay established a $10,000 
endowment for the Cameron 
School of Business Administra- 
tion as did Elwood Walker.

Practical tips for charitable giving 



BY TYRONE ROWELL 

One ot the nicest things about 
giving is that you have the 
power to decide. 

You give if you feel like it and 
refuse it you don't. And, you give 
whatever and \\ henever you like. 

Still this freedom of choice may 
leave you uneasy. Once you have 
made up your mind to do something, 
you have many questions. How much 
should I give? How? When? What? 

Your decision to give something 
begins with your unselfish wish to 
help someone else. More than any- 
other people, Americans generously 
support institutions and causes dedi- 
cated to helping people less fortunate 
than they are. Ninety percent of pri- 
vate charitable giving comes from in- 
dividual donors, most of them givers 
of relatively modest amounts. 

Our government encourages 
philanthropy by allowing deductions 
for income tax purposes and exemp- 
tion from estate taxes, sharply reduc- 
ing the cost ot charitable gifts. This 
is wise because nonprofit institutions 
provide services with far less cost and 
red tape than public agencies do. 
How much should you give? 

This is a tough question. Should 
one give a little to each of the many 
fine causes or a lot to a few of them? 

Let's assume you are thinking 
about making a major gift to a wor- 
thy institution such as UNCW. How 
do you decide what is the right 
amount? Try this approach: 

• Determine the size of the project 
and consider a contribution pro- 
portionate to it and to the ability 
of others to support it. 

• Review your personal and family 
concerns, reserving enough to 
meet them. 

• Ask you tax advisor to calculate 
your optimum income tax deduc- 
tion, examining such factors as the 
nature of the donee, the type of 
gift to be given, the timing of the 



gift (present or deferred) and 
your contribution base 
• Select a suitable kind of gift. 
While cash is the simplest, tor tax 
and other reasons, you might give 
stocks, real estate, a lite insurance 
policy, a boat or some other pos- 
session. Many UNCW scholar- 
ships have been established 
through gifts such as these. 
When should you give! 

You can give now, or you can 
agree now to make a gift later (a de- 
ferred gift). Which is better? 

Like many donors, you may pre- 
fer to give now so you will not have a 
future obligation. This allows the in- 
stitution you are helping to meet its 
current needs. On the other hand, 
postponing your gifts lets you enjoy 
the use of your money or property 
that much longer. Moreover, if you 
do not have the wherewithal now, 
installment payments make sense. 
Deferred giving allows you to get the

Finally, larger gifts 
are sometimes 
made hy will. 

You can 
choose from sev- 
eral plans to 

achieve the balance you seek be- 
tween personal needs, tax savings 
and charitable intentions. These 
include: the gift annuity, the annu- 
ity trust, the unitrust and the gift 
of a home subject to your retained 
use for life. 

Should you tell the recipient how you 
want the gift spent? 

A contribution to UNCW with- 
out strings is usually better as the in- 
stitution can decide the best use ot 
the funds. Often there are pressing 
current needs vital to its successful 
operation and the personal welfare of 
individuals it serves. 

But you have the right to restrict 
your gift, for example, to purchase 
certain equipment or to support a 
specific academic department or the 
building of an addition. One of the 
most common requirements is that a 
gift he permanently invested and 
only the income used for current 
needs (an endowment). 

Through intelligent financial 
and estate planning, you can stretch 
your contributions while saving in- 
come and estate taxes. 

Enlightened charitable giving 
often requires the professional skills 
of a lawyer, accountant, trust offer or 
life insurance underwriter. To coor- 
dinate your plans, we invite you to 
contact UNCW's University Ad- 
vancement Division at (910) 395-

wisest means.

SHORT TAKES 



Running, swimming, cycling. 
Competitions. 
Triathalons. What is the 
common thread running among all 
of these? 

Simple. A young athlete by the 
name of Cameron King. 

Although a recent graduate of 
the University of North 
Carolina at Wilmington, 
King has already covered 
more miles with her body 
than most young people 
her age can ever hope to 
cover with their cars. 

Literally, she covers 
about 32 miles a day — 
swimming one mile, bik- 
ing 25 miles and running 
six miles. But King has gone a lot 
farther than just where her daily rou- 
tine takes her. In August 1994, King 
placed 12th overall in the National 
Amateur Championships in Colum- 
bia, Md., and won a spot on Team 
USA. In November, she travelled to 
New Zealand to compete in the 
Triathalon World Championships. 
She walked away with third place and a 
determination to win the next time. 

Now that she has graduated with 




a degree in natural resources recre- 
ation management, King has moved 
back to her hometown of Charlotte. 
She is preparing for her move to Ra- 
leigh, where she will become an in- 
tern with Raleigh Parks and 
Recreation. This doesn't mean, 
though, that she has given up on com- 
petitions. 

"My plans are to 
stay an amateur one 
more year and eventu- 
ally become recognized 
as a top competitor," 
King said. 

King still plans to 
pursue the Triathalon 
World Championships 
and hopes to turn pro in 
the next year or two. She works out 
every day, anywhere from one-and- 
a-half to three hours, and says she 
"would really like to make a 'career' 
out of this" before actually settling 
into her life's work. 

With the skill and determina- 
tion needed to strive tor the crown, 
King is sure to go a long way and 
eventually capture that glory she 
seeks.

Volunteers crucial to success of UNCW events 



More than a thousand volun- 
teers helped UNCW conduct 
two major events this spring - 
the Wise House Designers Showcase 
and the 1995 NCAA Women's Golf 
Championships. 

Over a three-week period in April 
and May, some 800 community volun- 
teers were hostesses in the rooms of the 
Designers Showcase, worked in the gift 
shop, took tickets and helped in the 
tea room. 

"All the volunteers were wonder- 
ful," said Cherry Woodbury, Wise House 
special events coordinator. "The volun- 
teers bought into the house and said they 
would do it again in a minute." 

Members from approximately 20 
community organizations helped with 
the showcase making it the "biggest event 
undertaken by UNCW in collaboration 
with the community," according to 
Woodbury. "The volunteers were com- 
mitted to making this event successful; 
they fell in love with the house and 
wanted all the visitors to also," she said.

tournament records for attendance, 
the 1995 Women's Golf Champion- 
ship, hosted by UNCW at Landfall, was 
a huge success. "Without all 300 volun- 
teers we (UNCW) could never have 
pulled off such a tremendous event," said 
tournament director Donna Cameron. 

Volunteer services for the champi- 
onships included shuttle van drivers, 
hospitality, scoreboards, spotters and 
media assistants. Most of the volunteers 
had a love for golf, and some even picked 
up a few pointers watching the girls. 

Thank you notes from players, par- 
ents, NCAA officials and volunteers 



poured in after the event. The golf cham- 
pionships boosted not only the reputa- 
tion of UNCW, but gave Wilmington a 
chance to shine. 

"The commitment of the volun- 
teers says a lot for UNCW and the Wilm- 
ington community," said Cameron. 

Nettie McKenney volunteered her 
services and wound up as the volunteer 
coordinator. She said she would raise her 
hand again if she had the opportunity to 
work with the same group of people. 

"I had a wonderful time. 1 truly 
support the youth and the game of golf. 
Youth is what we have to promote if we 
are to have golf in the future," explained 
McKenney. 

Chancellor James R. Leutze saluted 
those who came to UNCW's aid. "These 
volunteers who were so generous with 
their time and skills have bought into 
UNCW. Now with their personal in- 
vestment into the university, they own a 
part of our success. They are now, more 
than ever, enthusiastic supporters and 
eager to stay involved," he said.

Building boom 
is anticipated 

As UNCW approaches its 50th anniversary in 1997, 
the campus community is anticipating more than 
$50 million in building projects. 

The biggest is the science building, currently under con- 
struction. The $18.5 million, 100,000-square foot building, is 
scheduled for completion in June 1996. 

This summer, the university got a $16 million boost from 
the N. C. General Assembly. The appropriation will fund the 
new marine science center at Myrtle Grove, replacing the 
hodgepodge of nearly 20 buildings and trailers at the Center for 
Marine Science Research at Wrightsville Beach. 

Construction crews are currently at work expanding Bear 
Hall, an 1 1,000-square-foot-addition, which should be com- 
pleted by the new year. Nearby DeLoach Hall will see a $1.4 
million renovation which will include reconfiguring classroom 
space and upgrading the heating and air conditioning systems. 

Other projects currently in progress include renovation of 
the west wing of Kenan Hall and the installation of soccer field

lighting and new bicycle racks. 

Plans are in the works to create a commons area in the 
center of campus between Randall Library, the University 
Union and Morton Hall. It will feature a water interest such as 
a small lake and fountain and an amphitheater for outdoor 
performances. 

In the planning stages are student housing and a student 
recreation center, as well as a new parking lot and additional 
Kenan Hall renovations. 



New UNCW documentary 
explores life along the coast 



With the success of one 
documentary under its 
belt, UNCW has begun 
work on a second production. 

Treasure Coast: The Natural Heri- 
tage of the North Carolina Shore will 
examine the economic and cultural 
heritage of the North Carolina Coast 
through the eyes and words of many of 
its residents: fishermen on Ocracoke, 
decoy carvers on Harker's Island, de- 
velopers and scientists. 

Chancellor James R. Leut:e will 
host the documentary which will air in 
late spring 1996 on UNC-TV. 

UNCW has become a leader in 
coastal research and education with 



internationally recognized expertise in 
estuarine, wetland and barrier island 
habitat studies. Information collected 
will help prescribe the most sustain- 
able management and use for the state's 
natural resources. 

"Because the design of future 
policy must be based on sound scien- 
tific information attained from state- 
of-the-art technology, UNCW is 
committed to advancing public aware- 
ness of the issues which affect us," said 
Chancellor Leutze. The advantage of 
knowledge and awareness is that an 
informed public will become directly 
involved in charting the future of their 
coastal resources.

Treasure Coast film crew stopped at 
Jockey's Ridge State Park in the Outer 
Banks to interview Peggy Birkemeier of 
Friends of Jockey's Ridge. UNCW alumnus

Halme is honored 
with Teaching 
Excellence Award 

Kathleen Halme, assistant pro- 
fessor of English, was honored with 
the UNCW Board of Trustees Teach- 
ing Excellence Award which is de- 
signed to exemplify UNCW's 
commitment to teaching excellence. 

A nomination committee made 
up of faculty members cited Halme for 
her enthusiastic and selfless commit- 
ment to her students' creative poten- 
tial and academic success and her 
dynamic and continuing involvement 
in developing various learning pro- 
grams outside the classroom. Halme 
joined the faculty in 1991. 

In addition to the recognition, 
she received $1,500 in cash. She will 
also be expected to share her excel- 
lence with colleagues and students 
throughout the next year. 



People, positions added 
to administrative staff 



Several administrative changes 
took place at UNCW over the 
summer. 
A new position, associate provost 
for enrollment affairs, was created, and 
Dr. Denis G. Carter was appointed to 
till it. Carter will be responsible tor 
oversight of pre-admission and recruit- 
ment activities, admissions, enroll- 
ment, records, financial aid, student 
academic support programs, transfer 
articulations, special and summer ses- 
sions. Carter came to UNCW in 1978 
as assistant professor of economics. He 
served as the first assistant and associ- 
ate dean of the Cameron School of 
Business Administration. In 1992 he 
was appointed associate vice chan- 
cellor for academic affairs and was 
senior associate vice chancellor for 
academic affairs. 



Dr. Neil F. Hadley was named 
dean of the UNCW Graduate School. 
He hails from Arizona State Univer- 
sity where he was a professor of zoology 
and former associate dean of the gradu- 
ate college and assistant vice president 
for research. He is the second dean of 
the graduate school, but the position 
has been restructured to include re- 
sponsibilities for research administra- 
tion. Dr. Jack Manock, formerly 
director of research administration, 
returned to teaching full-time in the 
chemistry department. 

Dr. Carolyn Simmons announced 
that she will resign her position as 
dean of the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences and return to teaching in 
UNCW's psychology department, ef- 
fective December 31. She has been 
dean since July 1990.

'Through the Decades' 

A look at Wilmington College 



By MARYBETH K. BlANCHI 

Donald Blake was 22, al- 
ready a veteran of World 
War II, when he enrolled 
in the newly established Wilming- 
ton College Center of the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina. 

It was 1946. 

"I was in the very first class," 
Blake recalls. Classes were held in 
New Hanover High School, begin- 
ning at 4 p.m. The high school stu- 
dents went home, but many of 
their teachers pulled a second shift, 
teaching area residents and return- 
ing veterans who were eager to 
continue their education. 

"Most of us probably couldn't 
have made it without that," Blake 
said. "It gave us an opportunity to 
get started." With help from the 
GI Bill, Blake was able to afford 
the tuition, which was $4 a quarter 
hour, plus a $5 registration fee, ac- 
cording to professor emeritus J. 
Marshall Crews in his book From 
These Beginnings. 

"The school was much more 
informal than it is to- 
day," Blake remem- 
bers. "You knew 
everybody in the stu- 
dent body. Everybody 
was there because they 
wanted to be." 

The classes were 
small, and students re- 
ceived a lot of personal 
attention from their 
instructors. For ex- 
ample, Blake said, stu- 
dents knew that 
biology professor Paul 
Wright and Crews, 
who taught mathemat- 
ics and physics, were 
avid ping pong players. 

"If you wanted to 



get a good grade, you played ping 
pong with those guys. You made 
brownie points," he said. 

Overall, the education offered 
at the new school was "as good as 
was available," Blake said. "We had 
Adrian Hurst teaching math" and 
Mildred Johnson, "the finest history 
teacher." He said, "She was the first 
person to make history come alive 
for me." 

Although Wilmington College 
was a two-year school at the time, 
it took Blake until 1950 to gradu- 
ate. "A lot of people were like me, 
got married and had kids and spread 
it out, not taking a full load." 

"I take great pride that I was a 
part of the early days. Anyone who 
doesn't feel proud of the campus 
today has ice water in his veins. To 
see what grew from those small be- 
ginnings is great," he said. 

Grace Gurganious Hobbs 
graduated from New Hanover High 
School in 1947 and enrolled at 
Wilmington College that fall,

when it achieved junior college sta- 
tus. The oldest of five children, 
Hobbs feels fortunate to have had 
the opportunity to attend college 
and probably wouldn't have if it 
hadn't been so accessible. 

At Wilmington College during 
1947-48, "the camaraderie among 
the kids was wonderful because the 
classes were small," Hobbs said. 

Looking back at Wilmington 
College, Hobbs said, "I feel like it 
was mine because we were the first 
ones. It's gone far beyond anything 
I expected to see. With each 
change in administration there 
have been great strides. It's a very 
vital part of the community." 

Hugh Fox was the first class 
president and Hobbs was secretary. 
Her husband-to-be, Roy, was man- 
ager of the college's first basketball 
team. 

Students in that class chose 
the college's mascot - the Sea- 
hawk. Although a seagull was sug- 
gested, Hobbs said, "We wanted 
something more ag- 
gressive." Ludie 
Croom was instru- 
mental in selecting 
the college's colors, 
green and gold, to 
represent the ocean 
and the sand, Hobbs 
remembers. 

Hobbs attended 
Wilmington College 
for just one year 
which she remembers 
as being "not terribly 
eventful. I was so in- 
terested in Roy and 
having a good time. 
The height of my am- 
bition was to be a 
wonderful secretary

and marry a handsome man," she 
said. She accomplished both, cel- 
ebrating 47 years of marriage and 
still working part-time as a secre- 
tary for Boney Architects. 

Fresh out of high school in 
1950, 17-year-old James Medlin de- 
cided he wanted a career in engi- 
neering but he said he "didn't have 
money to go to another school. 
This one was close by." So he en- 
rolled at Wilmington College. 

"Money is probably the big rea- 
son a lot of local folks went there," 
he said. "We were very fortunate to 
have the school here. Some of us 
wouldn't have gotten a college edu- 
cation if it wasn't for Wilmington 
College," Medlin said. 

Classes were small; there were 
three in Medlin's physics class, and 
when the experiments were com- 
pleted, they'd form a foursome with 
Professor Crews and play ping pong. 

The school store was started 
under the basement steps in Isaac 
Bear Hall. "1 remember I ran it for 
a year. There wasn't anything to 
sell. Candy, nabs, peanuts, drinks, 
maybe pencils, I don't know," 
Medlin remembers. 

When he graduated in 1952, 
the students were honored at a 



banquet at the Famous Club. 
"That was a big to-do," Medlin 
said. Students considered it the 
climax of the college social year. 

As the first in his family to 
graduate from high school, Medlin 
said, "I never envisioned I could go 
to college." And he didn't envision 
the college becoming a four-year 
university on a sprawling campus. 
"I don't think any of us going there 
thought it would grow to what it is 
today." 

Buck O'Shields '61, who served 
as student body president, clearly 
remembers one particular day he 
went to work at Payne's Men's 
Shop. Owner Harry Payne, who 
was a Wilmington College trustee, 
shared with him the architect's rec- 
ommendation for the building de- 
sign of the new campus on N.C 132 
- adobe exteriors with tile roofs. 

"That's what they were looking 
at, and everybody got so upset. We 
may be at the coast, but we're not 
that," O'Shields said of the sug- 
gested architectural style. Luckily, 
the trustees agreed and decided on 
the Georgian style which O'Shields 
felt suited the character of the 
Wilmington area much better. 

"What we thought we needed 



was what we got," he said, and he's 
happy that the style of architecture 
has been maintained as the campus 
has grown. 

Wilmington College moved 
from its Market Street location out 
to the country in 1961. The first 
buildings constructed were Alder- 
man, Hoggard and James halls, at a 
cost of $1,149,588. The trunks of 
towering oak trees that now line 
the quadrangle were about six 
inches in diameter at the time, and 
"when you walked across campus, 
the wind blew sand in your eyes," 
because there was no grass growing 
there, Steve Culbreth '63 and '65 
remembers. 

When Culbreth was a student, 
college officials lobbied the state 
legislature to upgrade Wilmington 
College from a two-year to a four- 
year school. The effort paid off, and 
Culbreth was a member of the first 
class of 52 men and women who 
earned bachelor's degrees from 
Wilmington College. 

When he enrolled in law school 
at the University of North Carolina 
at Chapel Hill, Culbreth admitted he 
was "scared to death" to be compet- 
ing with top graduates from Harvard 
and other Ivy League school--. 



UNCW Magazine 



UNCW Magazine 




As first president of the alumni association, Donald 
Blake '50 crowns Dot Howell as the first homecoming 
queen. 

"I came to recognize some- 
thing," he said. "My educational 
background was every bit as good." 
Lionel Yow '65 was one of 
Culbreth's classmates who also 
went on to become a successful 
Wilmington attorney. 

When Culbreth enrolled at 
Wilmington College in 1961, tu- 
ition was $200 a quarter, and Dr. 
William Randall, for whom the li- 
brary is named, was president. 
Coach Bill Brooks, who Culbreth 
said "was the biggest scavenger," 
had the field house (Hanover 
Hall) built at practically no cost. 
He also had surveying classes scope 
out the baseball field, and physical 
education classes provide some of 
the labor to clear the land. 

"It was a great school and we 
made a lot of friendships," he re- 
members. A particularly good 
friendship he made was with Dr. 
Randall's secretary and fellow stu- 
dent, Bonnie Raines, whom he 
married two months before gradu- 
ation "so she could put me 
through law school," he joked. 

O'Shields also married a class- 
mate, Judy Avery, who was secre- 
tary of the student body when he 
was president. The tradition of 
Wilmington College continued 
with their children; one son at- 
tended UNCW, another earned 
his degree at UNCW and a daugh- 



ter is married to the men's 
athletic trainer at the uni- 
versity. 

A similar family tradi- 
tion has been carried on 
by Shearon Eadon Apple- 
ton '68 who married busi- 
ness professor Robert 
Appleton when she re- 
turned to campus in the 
late 1970's. With a son who 
is an alumnus and a daugh- 
ter who is a sophomore, 
the Appletons are "very 
much a UNCW family." 
And they aren't the 
only ones. 

"The funny thing is, as 
I sit at the ball games and 
look around, so many of these 
people are people I graduated with 
and their children are now here in 
school," said Appleton, who was maid 
of honor in the 1969 May Court. 

Norman York '69 believes "to 
the best of my knowledge" that he 
is the last graduate of Wilmington 
College. He received his degree the 
first Sunday in June 1969. The 
next Sunday he went to boot camp 
and the following Sunday, Wilm- 



ington College gave birth to the 
University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington. 

He remembers the day Presi- 
dent Randall walked into the li- 
brary ringing a big hand bell, 
announcing Wilmington College's 
accreditation as a four-year school. 

Even to this day, York, an at- 
torney in Cary, holds many fond 
memories of his alma mater. He en- 
rolled with the idea of transferring 
after a year or two, but once he got 
to Wilmington College he was 
hooked. 

"I felt like I was getting a qual- 
ity education," he said, and he 
knew his credentials would be as 
good as any needed for admission 
to law school. "The teachers made 
you work hard for what you got, 
which was a valuable lesson and 
prepared me for law school." 

There were many changes as 
Wilmington College grew over two 
decades and the memories held by 
most alumni are fond. 

As Susan Gustafson '55 recalls, 
"I remember it as a very good time, 
a beginning, vet a progressive time."

Join us for a reunion 

During its 23 years of existence, Wilmington College changed the 
landscape and mindset of a poor, rural coastal community, opening 
doors for many people who thought a college education was beyond 
their reach. 

The alumni association has spent months researching old records, 
following leads and scouring the phone book in search of those 
thousands of men and women who attended Wilmington College 
between 1946, when it was a college center, and 1969, when it became 
a full-fledged member of the University of North Carolina system. 

The reason is to tell them about the Wilmington College Reunion 
being planned for October 6 and 7. Two events are scheduled. The first 
is a wine and cheese reception beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, October 6, 
at the historical Wise Alumni House on Market Street. The second is 
the "Through the Decades" reunion at 8 p.m. Saturday, October 7, at 
the UNCW University Center Ballroom. Admission for each event is 
$12.50 a person, and reservations should be made by September 28. 

It will be a good time to renew friendships, reminisce about the old 
days and enjoy the fruits born of Wilmington College. See you there! 



FALL 9 5 




Dr. Waller C Biggs, Jr. '51 Dr David K. Miller '62 Dr Richard A. Laws '75 Dr Julian R Keith '83 

First, they were students, then ... 

They came back to teach 



BY MARYBETH K. BlANCHI 

They all have one thing in common. 
They returned to the university where they got 
their first taste of higher education. 

Walter Biggs '51, David Miller '62, Richard Laws 
'75 and Julian Keith '83 didn't return to take additional 
classes, they returned to teach them. 

Those men, whose careers span a time of growth 
and change for what was Wilmington College and now 
is the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, 
had distinct experiences but share a commonality. The 
personalized education they received as undergraduates 
made them want to return the favor. 

Walter Biggs graduated from New Hanover High 
School in 1949, and "it was sort of a natural thing" for 
him to enroll at Wilmington College, which had 
opened two years earlier as a college center for return- 
ing World War II veterans. Classes were held in the 
high school during the evenings and eventually moved 
across the street to the Isaac Bear Building. 

"It's sort of interesting to think of the conditions 
there," Biggs remembers. 

"The library was a converted classroom in the 
building. Some of the faculty office space was in an old 
classroom in which desks were simply placed. It was 
sort of a maze of desks, and you worked elbow to elbow 
with other people." 

Classes at the two-year Wilmington College were 
initially vocational/technical in nature, but as "the 
school progressed and that need diminished, it gradu- 
ally evolved away from that. Those programs were gone 



by the late fifties I would guess. And of course it he- 
came almost exclusively academic," Biggs noted. 

Biggs enrolled at Wilmington College just a few 
months after the first associate of arts degree was issued 
to 14 graduates. During his two years, Biggs served as 
student body president and was voted most likely to 
succeed by his classmates. 

"You were getting a good educational background, 
but being so closely tied to the high school, and par- 
ticularly since I had just come from the high school, it 
seemed like an extension of the high school," Biggs 
said. "It certainly wasn't comparable to going to Caro- 
lina or Wake Forest in terms of student life because 
there was very little of that." 

But all in all, Biggs believes at Wilmington College 
he got a good start in his pursuit of higher education. 

"I really think that considering how the school got 
started ... and considering the meager facilities and the 
very meager resources it operated on, it did a very good 
job. A lot of people attended that school who went on 
to do very major things," he said. 

Biggs went on to East Carolina College for a bach- 
elor ot science degree, served in the military, taught 
high school biology at New Hanover High School and 
entered graduate school at Texas A&M. 

In the fall of 1960 he returned to Wilmington Col- 
lege to teach; one of three members of the biology fac- 
ulty. 

"It literally was coming home in a personal sense 
and an academic sense," Biggs said. "I never really made

an effort to go anywhere else." 

He became a peer of the faculty members who had 
taught him just a few years earlier, earning just $4,500 a 
year. While he taught, he worked on his doctorate at 
N.C. State University and completed the requirements 
in 1969. 

During his 33 years as a faculty member, Biggs, who 
retired in 1994, was involved in the college's move from 
one building downtown to three - Alderman, Hoggard 
and James halls - and its gradual expansion to serve 
more than 8,400 students. He was a part of the shift 
from two-year college to four-year university. 

"One thing that has changed, and that I've missed 
over the years, was the smallness and socializing among 
the faculty," Biggs said. "At one time I knew all the fac- 
ulty." At socials, square danc- 
ing was their favorite pastime. 

Biggs' first year teaching 
at Wilmington College, 1961, 
was David Miller's first year as 
a student. Student enrollment 
was approximately 600. 

"I've been very fortunate 
to have been a student at 
Isaac Bear, among the first 
students on the new campus, 
and to come back and see all 
the growth and develop- 
ment," said Miller, whose ca- 
reer at UNCW has progressed 
from faculty member and de- 
partment chair to associate 
dean and associate vice chan- 
cellor. He is now director of 
summer sessions. 

Miller was recruited from South Carolina by Coach 
Bill Brooks and was awarded a baseball scholarship that 
covered tuition costs, $130 a quarter for out-of-state 
students. He accepted, sight unseen. 

His first impression? "It was a disappointing feel- 
ing," he said. "But I had a lot of fun. You got to know 
everyone." 

"Other than athletes, most of the others (enrolled 
at Wilmington College) were local people," Miller re- 
called. There were no dormitories. "Coach Brooks 
would try to find rooms for athletes." 

In those days few students had cars, and so Miller 
would walk the 10 blocks from his room to campus sev- 
eral times a day. "We didn't think anything of it." 

Although Miller was at Wilmington College just two 
years, they were exciting years. As a freshman, he and his 
teammates went on to claim the national baseball cham- 
pionship and finished second his sophomore year. 

But in order to play, the players first had to clear 
the field which was then a pine forest where the dirt 



i alter Biggs became 
a peer of the faculty 
members who had taught 
him just a few years ear' 
Her, earning just $4;500 
a year. He said it was like 
"coming home in a per' 
sonal sense and an aca> 
demic sense," 



road to the back of campus ended. According to Miller, 
"Coach Brooks did most of the work" with the help of 
students and volunteers. "He built that field for a small 
expense to the college." 

Miller graduated in 1962, and the following year 
the college began offering a four-year program. He went 
to Wake Forest University to complete his bachelor's 
degree and to Chapel Hill for his master's degree. Then 
he returned to Wilmington. 

"Back then, my goal was to teach and coach. I had 
no other opportunity to start off at a college level," 
Miller said, and he readily accepted the job which paid 
$5,500 a year. "I felt fortunate to get it, and I wasn't 
about to quibble over the salary." 

The only time Miller left campus after that was for 
course work at the University 
oi Florida where he received 
his doctorate. "I had no idea 
30 years later I'd be here." 
Watching the college 
grow "has been exciting," 
Miller said. Like Biggs, there 
was a time when he knew 
most everyone on the fac- 
ulty, when "things were less 
complicated." 

But, there were draw- 
backs. "We couldn't provide as 
much as we can now. I think 
the student gets more for his 
dollar now," he said. 

He feels privileged to have 
been a part of Wilmington 
College's early days and to still 
be involved with UNCW today 
to "see what it's developed into - a quality institution." 

When Richard Laws left his home in Raleigh in the 
fall of 1971, the Vietnam War was in full swing and 
UNCW had opened its first dormitory. He was one of 
the first students to actually live on the UNCW cam- 
pus, in Galloway Hall. 

Laws remembers that the dorm was in the woods 
isolated from the rest of campus, except for Brooks 
Field. In fact, the entire area between Galloway and 
King Hall, which was the closest classroom building, 
was wooded. 

The campus was "very quiet," and College Road 
was just two lanes. 

"All I can remember were the apartments across 
the street and Kmart. There was nothing else until you 
got to Oleander," he said. "Most of the social activity 
took place at Wrightsville Beach, both night and day, 
or on campus." 

For UNCW students in the early 1970s, it was im- 
portant to get good grades to keep up your student de- 



ferment to avoid getting drafted into military service, 
Laws said. Bands like Pink Floyd and Yes held concerts 
on campus, and 18 was the legal drinking age. 

Although it had grown, the university was still rela 
tively small, Laws recalled. "It was more of a regional 
school. I can remember one international student, Pete 
from Peru. 

"Now we have the advantage of more resources; 
then we had more individual attention. All the depart- 
ments were much smaller, both in student numbers and 
faculty." 

Laws, who went on to the University of Califor- 
nia at Berkeley, felt the education he received at 
UNCW was "very good. When I went to graduate 
school, I didn't teel I was at a disadvantage." 

With a Ph.D. in hand, Laws applied for a job at 
UNCW and got it. He first 
taught during summer school «j 
in 1982. 

"Things had changed a 
lot. The college was differ- 
ent. The city was different. I 
had not been back since 
1975," he said. 

When he graduated there 
were six faculty members in 
the geology department. 
When he returned there were 
10. Now there are 16. The 
number of geology majors also 
increased over the span of 20 
years from about 10 to 80. 

When he was promoted 
to department chairman, 
Laws became "boss, in a 

sense" over the man who had inspired him to con- 
tinue his education at Berkeley, Victor Zulo. "He was 
always the teacher," Laws recalls of his former in- 
structor who is now deceased. 

Laws believes his biggest accomplishment is being 
able to help the geology department grow and weather 
changes. He expects to step down when the department 
moves from Friday Hall to DeLoach Hall after the new 
science building is completed in 1996. 

Julian Keith grew up with Brooks Field in his back- 
yard. As a child he would watch the baseball games and 
even be the team's bat boy on occasion. He graduated 
from Hoggard High School in 1980 and enrolled at 
UNCW when it still had an "open door" policy, accept- 
ing just about anyone who applied. 

Keith found that the quality of teaching and re- 
search at UNCW "was just everything you could ask for 
as a student. I never had a moment of disappointment. 
That's one reason why I wanted to come back here." 

When a paper was published on research he did as 



avid Miller feels 
privileged to have 
been a part of Wilming' 
ton College's early days 
and to still be involved in 
UNCW today to u see 
what it's developed into - 
a quality institution," 



FALL 9 5 

an undergraduate with psychology professor Mark 
Galizio, Keith said he then realized, "It's not just re- 
search, you're having an effect. It's not just something 
you're doing to exercise techniques. 

"When students and faculty can work together de- 
veloping new knowledge, then things are really hap- 
pening," he said. 

It was in B. Frank Hall's 8 o'clock philosophy class 
that Keith "came to the conclusion I would be in aca- 
demics." Hall and Jim McGowan "inspired me to be 
interested in intellectual things," Keith said, and 
"Mark Galizio introduced me to the idea of graduate 
school and going off to get an advanced degree. He, 
more than anyone, set me on the course of making my 
dream of being a college professor a reality." 

So with his bachelor's degree in hand, he packed 
his bags for Colorado and 
"meandered" through gradu- 
ate school. In 1991 when the 
work was completed, he 
learned through another 
UNCW alum and professor, 
Robert Hakan '80, that there 
was a job opening at his alma 
mater. 

He applied but didn't get 
it. What he did get was an of- 
fer to work as a lecturer. It 
wasn't long before there was 
another opening and that one 
he landed. 

"The first year was a little 
awkward. Former teachers are 
now colleagues," Keith said. 
As one would expect, adjust- 
ment in the group of psychologists didn't take long, 
and Keith is making his niche in the area of learning 
and memory. His current research is focusing on the 
changes in cognitive abilities after cardiovascular sur- 
gery. 

This past year, after only three years on the job, 
Keith was promoted to associate professor, one of the 
youngest on campus. His desire to be the best is in- 
spired by his colleagues. 

"You feel like the standards are very high. You 
have to be a good teacher because it would not be ac- 
ceptable not to be a good teacher in this department," 
he said. 

And even though the university is the largest it's 
ever been, Keith said it still maintains that "small 
school" atmosphere. "There's still a lot of contact." 
As one of the youngest UNCW alumni faculty 
members, Keith feels he has to pass the tradition of a 
"satisfying educational experience" on to his students.

Life is a basketball for Boles '77 



By Samantha Weinstein 

Boles is TQB. Total Quality 
Basketball. TOTAL basket- 
ball. 

Who would spend 19 years 
playing and coaching basketball, 
and then tor a vacation, after three 
weeks of boys' summer basketball 
camp, plan to watch the practicing 
Olympic team shoot hoops? 

Sheila Boles '77, the coach of 
Wilmington's Hoggard High 
School boys' basketball team. 
Who else? 

Boles is the first and only fe- 
male coach of a male basketball 
team in the state. She is now in her 
seventh year of coaching the 
Hoggard team and has led them to 
the playoffs twice in five seasons. 
With a record number of wins 
speaking for her, she's become one 
of the finest basketball coaches 
high school athletes and faculty 
have seen. And she's a woman - 
and a great coach. In this land of 
basketball where people tradition- 
ally think of coaches as men, this 
hasn't been the most agreeable 
combination for many to digest 
with their stadium hot dogs. Yet, 
she is the reigning queen, or coach, 
that is, of boys' basketball. 

As a native North Carolinian, 
she has remained in Wilmington 
since she first stomped her sneaker- 
clad foot on the shores of the 
nearby Atlantic Ocean. Within 
two weeks Boles had applied, been 
accepted and had her place on 
UNCW's first female basketball 
team of '73. 

From her beginnings as a pre- 
med major to the switch to physical 
education, Boles said she always 
knew she wanted to be a basketball 
coach. And so she coaches. Since 
she graduated from UNCW, Boles 
has coached male and female var- 




Boles '77 



sity and 
junior 
varsity 
basket- 
ball, 
with 
stints in 
her 

other fa- 
vorite 
sport, 
golf, . 
among 
the New 
Hanover 
County school system for 18 years. 

But it wasn't always one easy 
free-throw after another for this 
tireless woman. Boles almost didn't 
get her now famous job at Hoggard 
because of some biased attitudes as- 
sociated with a female coaching a 
male team in the high school set- 
ting. But she wasn't about to be in- 
timidated by those people who 
called the business of high-pres- 
sured basketball "a man's business." 
As Boles said, "When I applied 
for this job six years ago, 1 felt if 
nothing else 1 had earned the right 
to fail because I had been working 
in the county tor 13 years." 

Yet Boles didn't fail, even 
though she feels like she "couldn't 
have done it in any other town." 
Her modesty is sincere. When she 
found out that her acceptance as 
the first female coach of a boys' 
team set precedence and was fea- 
tured in USA Today, Boles replied 
in exasperation, "Don't they have 
any better news than that around 
the world? I mean, it was so 
trivial." 

That's only her opinion. Most 
everyone in Wilmington knows her 
as a spirited coach with a charis- 
matic personality and a list of ad- 
mirable accomplishments. 



When Boles started coaching 
the Hoggard boys' team she 
thought she would get a lot of flack 
and possibly some over-critiqued 
perceptions of her coaching. She 
did. Good and bad. But she was 
more concerned about the possible 
negative attention that her team 
would have to deal with playing for 
and receiving directions from a fe- 
male coach. 

Some of Boles's critics implied 
that because of her gender she 
would have problems being consid- 
ered a genuine coach. The infa- 
mous locker room situation was an 
issue, as well as the boys' behavior 
on the traveling bus. To those im- 
plications she retorted, "What 
about all the years of the men 
coaching women's sports teams?" 
Basically, Boles's enthusiasm for 
basketball paid off - the boys liked 
and respected her, and she got her 
bus pass. 

Boles feels no differently just 
because she's the first female coach 
of a boys' basketball team. To her 
"basketball's basketball," though 
she had always wanted to be in- 
volved in a male league. She con- 
sidered it a move to another level. 

At the varsity level, it's "the 
intense speed of the game" and the 
"above the rim" action that ignites 
Boles. She also loves being a part of 
"the camaraderie of the guys," 
which she feels "women need to 
learn a little of that from men." 

On and off the court, Boles 
has made a difference in the town 
of her alma mater. For years she's 
been involved in shattering firsts 
and challenging the records. With 
camaraderie, tenderness and in- 
tensity, Boles is pushing the 
Wilmington Hoggard boys to their 
greatest limits.

ALUMNI PROFILE 



Selling tea to China 



King '72 likes a challenge 



By Mary beth K. Bianchi 

Meeting a challenge head- 
on is nothing new for 
UNCW alumnus Joe King 
'72. Why, he's even trying to sell tea 
to the Chinese. 

King, president and owner ot 
Carolina Treet in Wilmington, has 
expanded his family's successful bar- 
becue sauce manufacturing business 
to include an iced tea concentrate 
that he claims tastes just like home 
brewed. The process for brewing the 
tea, which King invented, is a secret. 

"There are no other companies 
that make it to the standard we make 
it to," he said. "Ours is getting the 
reputation of being the best in the 
market." 

The concentrate, called "Aunt 
Bertie's" after his grandmother, is 
sold to restaurants and institutions. 

"We are thinking about manu- 
facturing the little bottles (for home 
use), but we won't until we have the 
production capacity to come out 
with a whole line ot flavors," he said. 

But what King is going to do this 
year is find out if the Chinese in 
Shanghai like his tea enough to im- 
port it half way around the world. 

"We're going to do our best to 
sell tea to China," he said. Barbecue 
sauce is a different matter because, 
King said, the Chinese and other 
Asians have such a large variety of 
their own spicy sauces that Carolina 
Treet seems mild by comparison. 
"We don't feel like there's a market 
for it," he said. 

King has been at Carolina Treet 
since he bought the business from his 
father, Lenwood King, in the early 
1970s. It wasn't a transition that was 
taken for granted. King was actually 
fired by his father shortly after he re- 
turned home from Army service. 

"He cut the ties in a hurry," 
King said of his father, who also fired 



his brother, Lenwood King, 
Jr., a 1958 Wilmington Col- 
lege graduate and L969 
UNCW alumnus, knowing 
that it would be better for 
them to make their own way, 
not working tor their father. 

King went on to work at a 
local department store, but al- 
ways in the back of his mind 
was the fact that he hadn't 
gone to college. 

"So in 1967 I quit my job 
and enrolled full-time at 
UNCW," King said. He first 
chose philosophy and religion 
as his major, but when he real- 
ized it would be hard to find 
someone who would pay him 
just to sit around and think, 
King changed his focus to eco- 
nomics. 

As an older student, who 
had graduated from high 
school in 1960, going back to the 
classroom was "very hard," King said. 
Fortunately he learned to cope with 
that initial anxiety and after about a 
month he said he "realized compet- 
ing with the kids wasn't going to be 
hard because they were just out of 
high school." 

When King graduated in 1972, 
after three and a half years, he said, 
"Daddy came to me and asked me to 
run this business." Although he had 
other job offers, King made the "hard 
decision" to rejoin Carolina Treet. 

Fot the past 23 years King has 
been managing the business which 
employs several UNCW alumni: his 
older brother who is sales manager; 
his wife, Lise Knox King '72; and 
secretary, Teresa Todd Little '92. 
Lenwood, Sr., 83, still checks in at 
the plant every week, just to make 
sure his two sons are doing a good 
job of handling the business. 




Joe King '72 holds the tea and barbecue sauce made 
by his company in downtown Wilmington 



Lenwood, Sr., really doesn't 
have anything to worry about be- 
cause his son prides himself on pro- 
ducing quality products. 

"In 42 years, we have never had 
a recall batch or a bad batch ot the 
(barbecue sauce)," he said. 

As Aunt Bertie's tea concentrate 
grows in popularity, King would like 
to expand the business which i-- lo- 
cated in the original building in 
downtown Wilmington, but past ef- 
forts to grow at its current site were 
thwarted by the city. King, however, 
really doesn't want to build else- 
where. 

"I've lived in Wilmington all my 
lite," he said, and he teels a certain 
devotion to the town where he was 
born, raised and educated. And one 
way he is sharing his success is by es- 
tablishing an annual scholarship cov- 
ering the cost ot tuition at UNCW, 

beginning this fall. ...

Classroom instruction transformed 
by computers, latest technology 



by marybeth K. bianchi 

The boring lecture where students silently copy 
an instructor's notes from a chalkboard will soon 
be a thing of the past in many UNCW classrooms. 

An increasing number of faculty members are learn- 
ing how to dazzle their students with the latest in com- 
puter and audio/visual technologies that can bring any 
subject to life. 

It may sound more like a video game than a college 
course, but Dr. Richard Ward, assistant vice chancellor 
for academic affairs, information technology and special 
academic programs, said it's changing the way students 
are taught. 

"This isn't a flash in the pan. It's not going to disap- 
pear. The flash is over with," he said. 

It's called hypermedia, and it goes far beyond the tra- 
ditional multimedia, allowing instructors to jump immedi- 
ately from one information 
source to another to present a 
complete picture of the topic 
or idea being studied. 

It takes time to develop 
this type of presentation 
which incorporates text, ani- 
mation, sound and video us- 
ing CD-audio, CD-ROM, 
videodisc, digital audio and 
digital video technology 
whether it's for a single lec- 
ture or an entire course. But it's something the UNCW 
faculty are eager to learn. 

In the four years since this hypermedia technology 
first appeared on campus, 160 faculty members or about 30 
percent have learned how to use it. Eight faculty members 
have developed entire courses using the technology and 
use it daily. 

"It takes a lot of extra effort for faculty to prepare 
these presentations," Ward said. It's like learning how to 
teach all over again. 

"To me the most important aspect isn't the technol- 
ogy, it's the fact that it causes faculty to completely re- 
think what they're teaching and what they expect students 
to get out of it," Ward said. 

"When you start teaching with this technology you 
have to throw out the old syllabus and class notes because 
you have this new capability. It takes a lot of work decid- 
ing what you're going to use," Ward said. "But it's good be- 
cause faculty spend time improving the course and helping 



t causes faculty to completely 
^rethink what they're teaching 
and what they expect students to 
get out of it*" 

Dr. Richard Ward 



students understand. It's a great way for faculty to put new 
life, not only into the course, but into the instructor." 

Professor Tom Shafer is a convert who is making full 
use of hypermedia technology to bring his biology lectures 
to life. He confesses to hating chalkboards and transparen- 
cies. By using the new technology, he said, "Any photo- 
graph or anything that I can photograph or, any motion 
video segment on a tape or laser disc, even any actual ob- 
ject that I can bring into the lecture hall can be projected 
on a screen' for a class of 200 to see." 

Ward pointed out that it takes some skill to avoid 
creating a "circus atmosphere" using hypermedia in 
the classroom. That's why UNCW's Center for Teach- 
ing Excellence regularly offers 15-hour workshops, 
taught by faculty members. It's one of only two sites 
nationwide which does so, he pointed out. 

Although other universi- 
ties are mandating instructors 
to use this new technology, 
few are actually using it to the 
extent UNCW is where it's 
entirely voluntary, Ward said. 
The main reason, he be- 
lieves, is because "it's fun. 
People enjoy doing it. It's 
creative." 

And, the students love it. 
"Computer-assisted lec- 
tures were the most effective lectures," one introductory 
biology student commented at the end of the semester. A 
chemistry student said, "The computer visual aids made 
me understand things that I couldn't have without seeing." 
Students are even learning how to do their own class- 
room presentations using hypermedia technology. 

"It's fun for them, and it's something they'll need 
when they get out in the world. It's the way business does 
business these days, so it's important for students to be 
aware of it," Ward said. 

He believes UNCW is at the forefront of this technol- 
ogy because the faculty are committed to teaching and be- 
cause administrative support designates funding. 
Approximately $300,000 in grant money and university 
funds have been invested over the past few years for the 
necessary hardware which is installed in classroom build- 
ings across campus, Ward said. 

Also during the past three years, a major effort has 
been made by UNCW's Office of Information and Com- 



12 



puting Services to link faculty and students 
with each other and with the world, via the 
Internet and World Wide Web. Ward said 
this will allow faculty to develop interactive 
homework assignments for their students 
which can he accessed via computers in one 
of nine microcomputer labs on campus or 
their own personal computers. 

One way this has been made possible is 
by the installation of fiber optic cabling to 
every major building on campus. Funding 
has been appropriated this year to complete 
the connection of every building to the 
campus network which means that virtually 
every office on campus could have high 
speed ethernet communications to the cam- 
pus network and Internet this year, said 
Doug Jackson, associate director for Aca- 
demic Computing Services. 

The World Wide Web (WWW or the 
Web) provides access to a stupendous vol- 
ume of material and resources. The amount 
of information being transmitted along the 
Web is staggering, Jackson said, but Com- 
puting Services is dedicated to helping the 
faculty, the staff and the students develop 
the skills to effectively utilize the resources 
on the Web. 

UNCW has its own Home Page on 
the Web (http://www.uncwil.edu) as do 
many departments. A university commit- 
tee has developed guidelines for creating 
good Home Pages so UNCW presents a 
cohesive image to the world. 

The N. C. Information Highway is also 
winding its way through the UNCW cam- 
pus. Coordinator Hunter Thompson said 
about five percent of the people traveling 
the highway are taking courses, but as stu- 
dents begin to understand the capabilities 
of the system, he expects usage will grow. 
An example is a student who defended his thesis not 
standing in front of a classroom, but before the camera 
reaching out across the information highway. 

There are tew courses currently offered on the in- 
formation highway, but Thompson said as registration 
and funding guidelines are established, "it will be a 
commonplace occurrence." This fall, UNCW will be of- 
fering classes, originating on campus, for college credit 
at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, and the highway is 
used to transmit high level courses to rural high schools 
in the area. Faculty also use the distance learning facili- 
ties on campus to conduct seminars, reach out to other 
colleagues and participate in conferences. 

Advanced technology helps UNCW students not only 
in the classroom, but in many other ways across campus. 




It's called hypermedia, and it goes far beyond the traditional multimedia a ■ : 

UNCW faculty to jump immediately from one information source to another to present a 
complete picture of the topic or idea being studied As Dr. Richard Ward demonstrates, 
this type of presentation incorporates text, animation, sound and video using CD-audio, 
CD-ROM, videodisc, digital audio and digital video technology 



Recently, the university completed the successful in- 
stallation of an Interactive Voice Response System tor use 
by the students, Jackson noted. This system eases the pro- 
cesses of registration, grade query and even student ac- 
count information by making it readily accessible via a 
touch-tone phone. Students simply call to register for 
classes, get their grades or determine the status of their ac- 
count with the university including payment of their ac- 
count by credit card. 

"This has been a very successful project and has pro- 
vided students with a much better method ot performing 
those administrative tasks that are such a necessary pari >>t 
higher education," Jackson said. "No more standing in 
long lines, waiting to registet for a course that is probably 
already full." yy

Plan your gift to UNCW 



By Tyrone rowell 

Estate planning consists of 
three phases: acquisition, 
conservation and distribu- 
tion. The first two phases are goals 
for most of us. It's the concentra- 
tion on the distribution of assets 
that is difficult to do. 

In fact, some individuals never 
bring themselves to address the inevi- 
tability of a distribution. However, the 
state will have its way in the absence 
of action on your part. Only you can 
initiate the estate planning process and 
bring it to a conclusion. That is the 
paradox of estate planning: No one 
can do it for you, and few can do it 
well alone. 

The first step is to determine the 
nature, value, location and title of your 
property, including projected values. 
For some people, this can be fairly 
simple, done with little or no profes- 
sional assistance. For larger and more 
complex estates, accounting, legal and 
financial counsel may be necessary. 

The next step involves who is to 
get what and when. 

The process is more difficult be- 
cause no crystal ball is available to 
foretell the exact order of future 
events. This is not a reason to procras- 
tinate. Rather it reinforces the need to 
address the process in a timely and se- 
rious manner. Change is a constant in 
life, and it is important to review an 
estate plan on a regular basis. 

The first and most obvious ele- 
ment of a plan is a valid, up-to-date 
will. With a will, you can control the 
distribution of your assets, including 
designating a gift to UNCW. Several 
options are available for an outright 
estate distribution: 

• A specific sum of dollars from the 
liquidated estate 

• Particular named property such as 
stock, real estate or tangible per- 
sonal property items 

• All or a percentage of the residuary 
estate, after settlement costs and 
other specific distributions.

Generally, 
the most satisfac- 
tory choice is the 
percentage of re- 
siduary value. The 
percentage 
method provides 
a form of indexing 
the desired gift to 
adjust for infla- 
tion or changes in 



your financial circumstances. A gift of 
identified property may be thwarted by 
a subsequent decision to dispose of the 
property for market reasons. If, for ex- 
ample, you sold the property and ne- 
glected to adjust your estate plan, your 
goal to benefit UNCW would not be met. 

For estates with varied assets and 
numerous personal objectives, it is 
likely a will is only one element of the 
total integrated plan. 

A tool of steadily growing impor- 
tance in estate plans is the trust. A liv- 
ing trust manages assets during life and 
distributes assets at death, with the ob- 
jective being to avoid or to lessen the 
role of probate. However, a will is nec- 
essary to gather up assets not in the 
trust. 

Other specialized trusts are more 
directly involved in combining philan- 
thropic results with personal benefits. 
A charitable remainder trust is a good 
example. 

This type of trust provides income 
to individuals after which one or more 
qualified charitable organizations re- 
ceive the trust assets. There are two 
types of charitable remainder trusts: 
the unitrust with variable income and 
the annuity trust with fixed income. 
Both have potential for current in- 
come tax savings from the charitable 
deduction that results, avoidance of 
capital gains taxation, improved future 
income and reduction of estate taxes. 

A potentially powerful philan- 
thropic estate planning tool is the 
charitable remainder QTIP trust. Only 
applicable to plans for married couples, 
it is a trust that qualifies for the marital 
deduction at the first death even 
though the surviving spouse does not 



control the ultimate distribution of the 
trust asset. Advantages of the QTIP 
trust include: 

• The surviving spouse enjoys all in- 
come earned by the trust and can be 
given as much access to principal as 
desired. Thus the economic interests 
of the surviving spouse come ahead 
of those of the designated charitable 
organization, which receives only 
those assets not needed by the 
spouse. 

• Two coordinated QTIP trusts - a 
QTIP included in each spouse's es- 
tate plan for the other spouse - can 
carry out the separate charitable in- 
terests of a married couple, without 
concern about pressures on the sur- 
vivor to change the plan. 

You may want to consider life in- 
surance as an option for making a sig- 
nificant charitable gift with a small 
annual outlay. By naming UNCW 
beneficiary and assigning ownership of 
a policy to us, you benefit the univer- 
sity and receive a valuable income tax 
deduction. If you continue paying the 
premiums on a policy you give the uni- 
versity, you can get an annual tax deduc- 
tion. In addition, this removes the 
insurance policy from your taxable estate. 

If you want to help UNCW but 
aren't ready to give up ownership or 
control of your life insurance, you have 
several options. You can name the uni- 
versity as beneficiary, keeping owner- 
ship of the policy and the right to 
change the beneficiary. You can name 
UNCW the contingent beneficiary so 
we could receive the proceeds if your 
primary beneficiary predeceases you. 
Of you can elect a supplemental con- 
tract as settlement of your policies at 
retirement. This plan provides an an- 
nuity for you and names UNCW the 
residual beneficiary. 

We welcome the opportunity to 
meet with you and your advisors to dis- 
cuss how your charitable gift goals can 
be achieved through your overall es- 
tate plan. We invite you to contact 
UNCW's University Advancement 
Division at (910) 350-3170.

Make your investment in the future 



A brand new year has now be- 
gun, and with new beginnings 
comes the great expectation 
that we will be able to raise vital sup- 
port for many important projects and 
programs that are essential to academic 
excellence at UNCW. The challenge 
we face each year is how to maintain 
and increase these programs of excel- 
lence. The answer is private support 
from those who know and care about 
our university. 

Did you know that: 

• To continue attracting academically 
strong students, UNCW must in- 
crease the number and amount of its 
scholarships. Current resources and 
scholarships are not sufficient for us 
to meet the needs of the many ex- 
cellent students who want to join 
the Seahawk family. 

• UNCW is one of five schools in the 
UNC system authorized to host stu- 
dents who have been accepted into 
the N.C. Teaching Fellows Program. 
Private scholarships will allow us to 
accept an even greater number of 
students who will be our nation's 
community and business leaders. 

• Our faculty and staff are setting the 
example of helping to attract and 
provide opportunities for our stu- 
dents. With your help, we can multi- 
ply their efforts and insure a future 
of excellence for UNCW. 

A higher education offers diversity 

Serve your time 

The UNCW Alumni Association 
is seeking people to serve on its board

and comprehensiveness as well as focus 
and expertise. We can all point to our 
own educational environment as one 
of the most important tools in our cur- 
rent successes. Opportunities afforded 
to you wete due in large part to the 
goodwill and generosity of benefactors 
to your alma mater who came before 
you. The challenge is for each genera- 
tion of alumni to help carry the torch. 
UNCW needs those special indi- 
viduals who understand how important 
private gifts are to the vitality and lon- 



gevity of this institution. Your support 
is integral to ensure that today's and 
tomorrow's faculty and students will 
have the advantage of opportunities

ceive the best education possible at 
UNCW. Your investment in education 
is an investment in the future. 

Very soon you will he receive a 
request for your support. Please make a 
pledge to make waves into the future 
of UNCW. Gifts are accounted for on 
a July 1-June 30 cycle each year. 



Chairman's Report 



Greetings to all alumni and 
friends from the UNCW 
Alumni Association and its 
board of directors. 

On October 6-8, we will hold a 
Wilmington College Reunion and are 
inviting all former Wilmington Col- 
lege students to the UNCW campus to 
renew old acquaintances and reminisce 
about the "good ole days." 

• '47 - when Wilmington College was 
a two-year school on Market Street 
across from New Hanover High 
School. 

• '61 - when Wilmington College 
moved to College Road in the three 
original buildings. 

• '63 - when Wilmington College was 
authot ized to be a four-year institu- 
tion. 

• '69 - when it became a constituent 
campus of the University of North 
Carolina. 

The reunion is being held in con- 
junction with UNCW's Family Week- 
end and Wilmington's Riverfest. On 
Friday night, we'll have a social at 
Wise Alumni House. I'm sure you'll be 
very proud of it when you see it. 

In recent months we've had many 
exciting events on our campus, and the 
university is gaining much local, state, 
national and international attention for 
programs and events it is sponsoring. 
The alumni association wants to build 
on that growing reputation. 

More than three years ago we em- 




barked on a program to have the N.C. 
Division of Motor Vehicles produce 
Seahawk license plates. DMV requires 
300 complete applications with fees in 
order to begin production. We are ap- 
proximately halfway there, but need an 
additional 160 applications. 

Will you help 
us? Tn place your 
order, call the 
alumni office, re- 
quest an applica- 
tion and return it 
to Raleigh with 
your check. The 
sooner we reach 
our goal of 300, 

the sooner we'll

see our license 

plate on the highways. We certainly 

need your support on this project. 

The response from alumni, uni- 
versity staff and students to our new 
UNCW/BB&T MasterCard has been 
very good. The alumni association has 
already realized rewards from this pro- 
gram, which generates royalties that 
support programs sponsored by the as- 
sociation. 

I think you will agree that 
UNCW is "stepping up to the next 
level." As alumni we can take pride in 
the many accomplishments of our uni- 
versity. It makes us proud to be 
Seahawks! ,

Thousands view Designers Showcase; 
profit used as payment on L7CB loan 



Few will disagree that the Wise 
House Designers Showcase 
was a tremendous success. 
During the 21 days in April and 
May that the alumni house was 
open to the public, more than 
5,000 visitors viewed the once-der- 
elict mansion which was trans- 
formed into a breathtakingly 
beautiful home through the handi- 
work of 17 local interior designers. 

The showcase took more than 
a year of planning by the UNCW 
Alumni Association and Friends of 
UNCW, cosponsors of the event. 
Altogether, more than 800 people 
from numerous community organi- 
zations donated their time and tal- 
ents to keep the showcase 
operating smoothly day after day. 

As a result of this combined ef- 
fort, more than $80,000 in profit 
was realized, and was used in part 
to make a payment on the 
association's $400,000 renovation 
loan from United Carolina Bank. 
That loan, taken out in 1993, is 



now more than half paid off, and 
the alumni association continues 
to plan tund-raising events to pay 
off the remaining $175,000 and 
interest. 

About $14,000 of the money 
raised during the showcase went to- 
ward the purchase of items for the 
house including window shutters, 
handpainted kitchen cabinet 
knobs, the stove, draperies, foyer 
and staircase chandeliers and out- 
side coach lights. 

Mrs. Tabitha H. McEachern 
purchased handpainted wallpaper 
for the dining room in the exact 
original French hunting scene pat- 
tern. Mr. and Mrs. William Kingoff 
purchased the fountain for the 
sunken garden, and draperies were 
purchased by the Wilmington 
Woman's Club and Duane and 
Peggy Reaugh of Raleigh. 

UNCW alumni and friends 
might want to consider donating or 
loaning antique furnishings for dis- 
play in Wise Alumni House.

Director' s Message 



Wilmington College - I 
was there. 
In 1968 [entered Wilm- 
ington College as a freshman, travel- 
ing only two miles from home to 
obtain the college degree that was to 
be my big ticket. Little did I know 
that the experiences from those years 
would have a daily impact on me. As 
director of alumni relations for 
UNCW, those memories bring sup- 
port from fellow students and gradu- 
ates with similar fond experiences 
from earlier years. 

In English 101, I helped move 
"the stacks" from Alderman Hall 
that now fill Randall Library. Wise 
decisions and exciting weekend plans 
were made in the "Pub," now the 
Admissions, Financial Aid and 
Registrar's offices.

SHORT 



FALL 9 5 



After selling real estate for 
four years, Jim Farlow '66 
and John Pollard 70 decided 
the only way they were going to be 
able to sell quality-constructed homes 
was to build them themselves. 

Now, 20 years later, the pair say 
they ate "moderately successful" but 
more importantly, "We enjoy what 
we do." 

Since Farlow and Pollard gradu- 
ated from UNCW they have wit- 
nessed not only the growth of the 
community in which they live and 
work, but the growth of the univer- 
sity, and they believe there is a vital 
link between the two. 

"A big part of the growth in 
Wilmington wouldn't have occurred 
without the university," Farlow said. 
"For its size, Wilmington has a lot to 
offer, things that people and indus- 
tries look for when relocating." 

And a latge university is neces- 
sary to support that growth, he said. 
Not only does it create a well-edu- 
cated workforce, Pollard said, it's a 
big employer and contributes signifi- 




'66 and Pollard '70 



cantly to the enrichment of the en- 
tire community. 

Farlow remembers pastures 
along College Road where shopping 
centers are now lined up one after 
another. 

Although he and his partner at- 
tended UNCW at different times, 
both were members of the same fra- 
ternity, Pi Kappa Phi. 

"Being in a fraternity meant a lot 
to both of us. A lot of people think 
it's all social, but it's an opportunity 
to take on leadetship roles," Farlow 
said. He credits the fact that he was 
president of his fraternity for his suc- 



cess in the Air Force, 
which he joined after 
earning his degree in bi- 
ology and chemistry. 

Pollard holds a de- 
gree in business admin- 
istration, an area of 
study Farlow pursued 
when he returned home 
to Wilmington after 
more than four years in 
the service. 
Both feel it's important for 
alumni to continue their support of 
their alma mater. 

"We tty to be supportive in any 
way we can," Farlow said. One of their 
most recent efforts was donating their 
services for the construction of the 
playhouse which the UNCW Alumni 
Association raffled during the Wise 
House Designers Showcase, raising 
several thousand dollars. 

"The university means a lot to us. 
We got an education out thete. We 
want to see it grow, and we'll support 
it in any way possible," Pollard said.

Over the next few months, the center of UNCW's campus will be transformed, as this sketch 
by 8A/IS Architects illustrates The Campus Commons will be anchored by a 200-seat 
amphitheatre and three lakes carved from the seven-acre area surrounded by Morton Hall, 
Randall Library and the University Union. Walkways and landscaping will be added lo draw 
pedestrians toward the center of campus. The $535,000 project will be funded through 
private donations 



UNCW-TV brings entertainment, 
information to students on campus 

UNCW now has its own on-campus, cable-operated television network 
on Channel 77. The channel provides information about student 
activities, meetings, lectures and sporting events, as well as movies. 
Channel 77 can be seen on any television in the residence halls and in academic 
and support buildings on campus that have cable. 

UNCW-TV broadcasts two movies every night beginning at 8 p.m. Infor- 
mation about student activities is scrolled throughout the day and between 
movies. WLOZ, the student-run on-campus radio station, broadcasts live on 
Channel 77 while information is scrolled. 

SGA is working toward student involvement with the station by purchas- 
ing a video camera for student organizations to check out and tape their events 
to be shown on Channel 77. 

A TV advisory board, chaired by Frank Trimble, chairman of the Commu- 
nication Studies Department, has been appointed to decide the future of the 
station. Several issues at hand are the idea of broadcasting off campus and the 
possibility of live programming. 



CMSR dream 
nears reality 

A 10-year-old dream is about 
to become a reality for the 
Center for Marine Science 
Research. In about one year con- 
struction will begin on a new center 
in Myrtle Grove. 

The center's director, Dr. James 
Merritt, began developing a plan for 
the new center 10 years ago, said Paul 
Hosier, associate vice chancellor for 
Academic Affairs. Both Chancellor 
James R. Leutze and Provost Marvin 
K. Moss supported it and went further 
with it. 

"They had a vision which ex- 
tended beyond Jim's," said Hosier. 

However, it was not until last sum- 
mer, during the state legislative ses- 
si< »n, that UNCW got the official "OK" 
to go ahead with the project. UNCW 
will receive about $17.5 million over a 
two-year period for the project. 

The building, which will be about 
80,000 square feet, will be finished in 
October 1998. It will have many spe- 
cial features, including running sea- 
water which will be pumped from the 
nearby Atlantic Intracoastal Water- 
way into aquarium tanks at the cen- 
ter, a feature which Hosier said will 
"make" the facility. 

There will also be an auditorium, 
research space for marine scientists, 
classrooms, a greenhouse, a boathouse, 
conference rooms and offices for vis- 
iting scientists. The university plans 
to share the center with researchers 
from other universities. 

It has been exciting to see 
UNCW's marine science program 
grow, Merritt said. 

"This facility is very important. 
It's another stepping stone in achiev- 
ing the university's goal (which is) 
the national and international recog- 
nition that is in our destiny," he said.

UNCW takes message on the road 



UNCW continues to demon- 
strate its commitment to 
improving the quality of life 
tor people in southeastern North 
Carolina through the UNCW Days 
outreach program. 

This program was initiated by 
University Advancement as an ef- 
fort to take UNCW faculty and staff 
into its surrounding service area to 
let citizens know that UNCW is here 
tor them, ready to initiate new pro- 
grams and to continue making daily 
contributions to their communities. 
UNCW also wanted to promote 
higher education and highlight the 
role it plays in nearby towns. 

Last fall, Chancellor James R. 
Leutze led a contingent ot more 
than 30 professors and administra- 
tors for a full day of outreach ac- 
tivities in Onslow, Columbus and 
Sampson counties. This spring, ac- 
tivities wete held in Duplin and 
Pender counties, and on April 30 



UNCW Days will reach 
out to Brunswick 
County. 

The first outreach 
activity of its scope 
ever undertaken by 
UNCW included vis- 
its to area high schools, 
meetings with civic 
and governmental 
leaders, legislators, 
area business and in- 
dustry and alumni. 

The UNCW 

Alumni Association 
played an instrumental 
role in the success of 
this outreach effort. 
Alumni Director 

Patricia Corcoran spent 
most of her time visiting 
and hosted social events

Aquarius to host nationwide interactive program 



UNCW will be a host site 
for the upcoming JASON 
VII Project "Adapting to a 
Changing Sea." 

Via satellite and the Internet, 
students and teachers worldwide will 
be visiting the UNCW/NOAA Na- 
tional Undersea Research Center in 
Key Largo, Fla., and Aquarius, 
UNCW's underwater laboratory, 
April 15-26. 

The JASON Project was founded 
by Dr. Robert D. Ballard in 1989 
after students responded to his dis- 
covery of the wreck of the Titanic. 
Since that first expedition nearly two 
million students and teachers have 
joined him and his colleagues on six

This is not the first national 
exposure that Aquarius, which is 
owned by NOAA and managed by 
UNCW, has received. Hugh Downs 
visited Aquarius tor an ABC News 
20/20 segment on the plight of our 
nation's coral reefs. 

The underwater lab has been 
featured in several publications in- 
cluding Science News, Scientific 
American, Popular Science, Sea Fron-

also spotlighted in the Smithsonian 
Institution's Ocean Planet exhibit.

Make Your 
Dreams a 
Reality at 
Fantasy 
Auction 




By Barbara Cronk 



In the imagination, everyone 
trips through fantasyland where 
living out the wishful whims of 
life become a reality in the visionary 
world of the "mind." Now imagine 
your fairy godmother appears, 
waves her magic wand and wham! 
Your fantasy becomes reality, in 
real time, in the real world, a real 
life experience. 

Well, there may not be a fairy 
godmother on duty, but there is a 
next best thing - the UNCW 
Alumni Association Fantasy Auc- 




Beth Cherry, project manager for UNCW Alumni Association's Fantasy Auction, 
demonstrates one of the fantasies available to the highest bidder An excavator with a 
large mound of dirt. 



tion, to be held Saturday, April 20, 
at the University Center. 

The fantasy auction is stocked 
with dreamy packages to fit the 
wildest imagination with something 
for everyone. 

Take yourself back into the 
past to the backyard dirt pile where 
you played as a child. The place 
where you controlled the earth- 
moving power of your dumptruck, 
bulldozer and backhoe. With a 
powerful thrust you pushed the cold 
steel of your Tonka truck through 
the mountain of dirt molding the 
landscape at will. Perhaps your fan- 



tasy is to wrap your hand around the 
throttle of a "big boy" toy, a real 
bulldozer, and flatten a man-size dirt 
pile. It so, the Fantasy Auction has 
your dream all wrapped up - bull- 
dozer, hard hat and dirt pile - just 
waiting for a bid, the winning bid 
that is. 

Maybe it's wind and water rather 
than dirt and steel that triggers your 
fantasies. If so, then a weekend 
aboard a 37-foot sloop as a crew 
member in a regatta, participating in 
post race festivities, followed by a lei- 
surely day of graceful sailing on the 
Pamlico Sound could be what it 



SPRING 96 



SPRING 96 




takes to bring you from the 
imaginary world to the real 
world of excitement. 

Could it be 
that your fan- 
tasy is a bit 
more up in the 
air with guys 
like Chuck 
Yeager and Sky 
King? If your 
imagination has 
you up in the wild blue 
yonder punching holes in 
the sky and piercing the clouds you 
won't want to miss bidding on the 
private flying lessons tied down at 
the Fantasy Auction. 

Perhaps it's your vocal 
aspirations that soar in your 
secret fantasy. Is your dream 
to transform the music stu- 
dio where you sing 
a cappella in a bathroom 
shower stall to a recording 
studio where you can cut a 
record? If the answer is 
yes, then the UNCW 
Alumni Association Fan- 
tasy Auction has got your 
gig including airtime on a 
radio station. 

The Fantasy Auction is 
this year's major fund-raiser tor the 
UNCW Alumni Association and the 
brainchild of William G. Anlyan, 
vice chancellor for University Ad-

"The fantasy auction is really 
Bill Anlyan's fantasy fulfilled," said 
Beth Cherry, project manager. "He 
always wanted to do an auction fund- 
raiser, but he wanted it filled with 
action and excitement, especially in- 
cluding things of interest to men and 
items that are unusual." 

After this tantalizing peek at 
just a few of the many fantastic 
fantasy packages to be auctioned 
off, you can just imagine that the 
event promises to be an evening of 
action-packed fun, excitement and 
dreams come true.

about it, the silent

Cherry said. "Local businesses,

the university does for the commu-

tivating people." Even major 
corporations like USAir are assisting 
UNCW in this fundraising effort. 

The theme of the auction, "Fan- 
tasy Wise... a Dream Come True," 
says it all. 

"The goal is to raise in excess ot 
$50,000 to go towards reducing the 
UNCW Alumni Association's loan

said. "Then fantasy is to re-

E-mail, home pages, web sites, Internet; a mere five 
years ago only scientists and computer whizzes un- 
derstood these terms. Today if you ask any school- 
age child what they mean, he'll probably answer with such 
clear definition you would think he was reciting the mean- 
ing of a simple vocabulary word. 

Using a telephone was once thought to be the easiest 
way to get in touch with someone, but with the busy lives 
most now lead, this is no longer the case. E-mail (elec- 
tronic mail) has come to replace both answering machines 
and regular mail. It is the most convenient and inexpen-

By Vickie Yearby 



The Internet is by far the most useful and time-saving 
tool for gaining information on any subject. Many newspa- 
pers and magazines post their issues on the Internet, some 
with hourly updates. Job postings have also become an in- 
tricate part of what makes the Internet so appealing. 
Countless employers post job vacancies on the Internet 
and job seekers can place their resumes on-line for any 
employer with access to see. 

The Career Services Center at UNCW has now made 
it possible for students and alumni to search the Internet 
through Netscape, a net browsing program installed on all 
its computers. Netscape allows its users to browse World 
Wide Web sites that include news, entertainment and in- 
formation on any topic imaginable, like pet care or con-

sumer tips on products. Users also 
have access to job listings from all 
over the country. 

"Netscape is the most powerful 
and easy to use net browser that's out 
there," said Dana Little, career devel- 
opment counselor for the Career Ser- 
vices Center at UNCW. 

The Internet has 
become a vital job 
searching tool because 
more and more em- 
ployers are posting jobs 
on-line. The Career 
Services Center is tak- 
ing major steps to learn 
about all the possibili- 
ties for job searching 
on the Internet. 

"Students are com- 
ing to college a lot 
more computer literate. 
People helping stu- 
dents must stay up on 
the Internet," said 
Little. 

The center has 
started an "Internet 
Resource Library" 
which contains the lat- 
est books on using the 
Internet. Students and 
alumni are welcome to 
use the books. Little said it is helpful 
for a first-time user to read some of 
the literature before accessing 
Netscape; however, the center does 
not expect people to come in and be 
able to do everything on their own. 
Counselors are present during the 
center's hours to assist users. 

An alumni room has been cre- 
ated with two Macintosh computers 
and one IBM, all with Netscape ac- 
cess. Each computer is hooked up to 
its own laser printer. Appointments 
can be made for one-on-one counsel- 
ing or for help using the computers. 

Career Services has also 
bookmarked places on Netscape that 
give beginners information on get- 
ting started with their search. They 
can also suggest particular sites for 
web searchers, like "Cattapult," a job 
vacancy site exclusively for college 



students. "Job Track" will be avail- 
able to students and alumni this 
spring. This site, which posts jobs, 
was designed for college students 
and can only he accessed by colleges 
and universities. 

Career Services is also reviewing 
an electronic resume writing program

and a program that will allow indi- 
viduals to register with the Career 
Services office by computer. With 
the electronic resume program, stu- 
dents and alumni will be able to se- 
lect from several resume formats and 
store their resumes on disks which 
makes them easier to update. It also 
allows Career Services to respond 
quickly to an employer's request for a 
job applicant's resume because it can 
be faxed by modem through the 
computer in a matter of seconds. 

"Gone are the days of waiting 
for someone to hand pull resumes," 
said Little. 

While many individuals are fas- 
cinated with the concept of p. mhili 
their resume on the Internet, Little 
said they need to be careful. Some 
individuals can gain access to re- 
sumes out in cyberspace and alter 



them. Most companies advertising 
positions on the Internet don't re- 
quire applicants to post their resume. 
They can fax it. 

An alternative to posting your 
resume on the Internet is to create 
your own home page. I lame pages 
allow individuals to he creative and 
show employers how 
they stand out. 

Job searching and 
posting resumes aren't 
the only tools offered 
on the Internet in the 
area ot career services. 
"Job Web" is a site 
that offers resume 
writing tips and inter- 
view skills. Informa- 
tion about numerous 
job skills is available 
.is well as information 
to enhance your cur- 
rent job performance. 
E-mail is also a great 
way to network with 
individuals and agen- 
cies all over the coun- 
try. Individuals can 
join net groups made 
up of people with 
common interests. 
"Networking 
through e-mail gets a great number 
of responses in a short amount ot 
time," said Little. You can send an 
inquiry by e-mail to do:ens ot 
people at a time. It is also a great 
way to make contacts in your occu- 
pation all over the country. 

The Internet can also be used to 
research a company to which you are 
applying tor a job it it posts informa- 
tion on-line. 

"The Internet allows companies 
to keep current information and ex- 
pect more from job candidates as tar 
as company knowledge," said Little. 

With so many individuals 
searching for jobs on the Internet, 
the competition and number ot 
applicants would seem to be 
greater compared to the response 
generated by a local newspaper ad- 
vert isement. 



UNCW Magazine 



UNCW Magazine 



"It's a Catch-22. Everybody has access to job vacan- 
cies, so the competition is tougher. But it still comes down 
to who is going to sell themselves in an interview. It still 
comes down to the individual," said Little. She also stated 
that you should let employers know if you read about a job 
opening on the Internet. "They'll know you're computer 
savvy and it sends a different message," she said. 

Not to worry if you are computer shy. It is a well- 
known fact that many people still are, so most employers do 
not post job vacancies exclusively on the Internet. How- 
ever, Little said that in the future we will see more employ- 
ers using the Internet to fill job vacancies and to send 
current information about their company to the general 
public. It boils down to the fact that the Internet allows 
more direct and faster access. The Internet will become a 
primary source for information and job searching. 



All of these technological advances may scare some, 
but with a little help, the Internet is easy to maneuver. 

"No matter what their level of computer literacy, we 
encourage people to come in," she said. Little also asks 
that those familiar with the Internet come into the cen- 
ter and share their knowledge with counselors and users. 

The Career Services Center is located in the Univer- 
sity Union Rooms 104 and 106. It is open Monday 
through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Monday 
through Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The center can

More and more freshmen choose UNCW because of its growing 



academic reputation. 



In enhancing a gracefully flowing university environment, even as 



UNCW surges to the top among contributors to a global 



UNCW provides quality education not only to the people of this 



region but to those who come from across the country and 



abroad to benefit from its unique programs of study. 



In ensuring UNCW's goal of becoming the best teaching university in 
the South by the year 2000... 

UNCW was ranked Nth among 150 universities in the South in 
U.S. News and World Report's 1995 Guide to America's Rest

past September, UNCW sent nine of its nursing students to the 
convention of the North Carolina Association of Student Nurses 
(NCANS), a gathering of student representatives from 52 nursing 
programs within the state. They brought back the following results: 
The highest honor. Student Nurse of the Year, went to UNCW 
senior Paula Jones. 

UNCW nursing students Joan Wilborn and Megan Hall were 
elected president and vice president of NCANS for the coming 
year, and Melissa Batchelor was elected as editor of The 
Hyperdermic, the state newsletter for student nurses. 
UNCW School of Nursing tied in raising $2,200 through a food 
bank project to win the NCANS Community Service Award. 
Adams herself added lustre to the nursing school shortly after 
she arrived, when she received the prestigious W. K. Kellogg 
Foundation's Community Partnership Leadership Fellowship. 



She's not the only one of the UNCW faculty involved in 
community health activities. "We have nursing school faculty who 
volunteer in community clinics. That's important because it not only 
provides models for students, it provides a link between the 
community and university," Adams says. "This is a public university. It 
serves the community, so everything our faculty is involved with 
supports the university." 

Supporting the university is important to Virginia Adams who 
says she gives monetary donations to the university "on a regular basis 
because it helps to support student development. And if there are 
activities going on on campus, I participate! I want students to see I'm 
visible, accessible and can be reached — not hidden behind some 
door." 

With the support of the nursing school alumni, Adams says, the 
school has become a leader in the state. "We have a rigorous and 

competitive program. The nursing school currently has 



"I participate! 
I want students to see I'm visible, 

accessible and can be reached — 
not hidden behind some door." 



Community partnerships promote team effort among health 
agencies in the community, Adams explains. "Our partners are the health 
department, medical center and Southeastern Center for Mental Health. 
Our business is to provide health services and education in the schools." 

Adams says that through her Kellogg Fellowship project she and 
her colleagues have identified two chronic student health problems: 
attention deficit disorder and asthma. 



30 students in the North Carolina Scholars program. We 
have 120 students vying for just 70 slots in the nursing 
school each year. So we have very strong students, with 
strong math and science backgrounds." 

That strength shows in the numbers — in the results 
from the state board exam taken by nursing students 
upon graduation. Overall, the UNCW nursing school has averaged a 98 
percent passage rate. Over the past three years, that success rate has 
been 100 percent. 

Thus it's fitting that Adams cites as her top point of pride 
something that derives not from her work as administrator or 
researcher, but as a teacher: "Nobody could be more proud than 1 am 
of our students."

CHARLES 

GREEN 




for about 15 years after graduating from UNCW, Charles Green III 
did not set foot on the university's campus. Green said his 
struggle to earn a bachelor's degree in history, with a minor in music, 
had left him weary of higher education. 

But in 1985, Green returned to UNCW to take a class in freshman 
history. The experience was an awakening for Green. Since that time, 
he has been an avid supporter of the university, establishing 
scholarship funds and other endowments to serve the students and 
faculty. 

"The greatest gift I received from UNCW was the planting of 
certain seeds during my student days, which came into bloom many 
years later in the form of substantial and life-enriching interests in 
literature, history, military history and classical musical," Green says. 

"It has been my aim in recent years to establish programs at 
UNCW designed to pass along an interest in these great and beautiful 
subjects to others who may also enjoy them." 

A Wilmington businessman, Green began his support of UNCW 



Green chose to name the fund in memory of the late Dr. Thomas 
Moseley, a professor who taught history for 23 years at UNCW, 
specializing in Russian history and the American Civil War. Green took 
four courses from Moseley as a UNCW history major. 

"Moseley was a very unusual teacher, one of the most memorable 
teachers anyone could have," Green says. 

Green feels strongly about his commitment to UNCW and its 
students and has established a number of scholarship funds, naming 
them tor close friends, family and outstanding faculty members. 

He also has supported the establishment of the Wise Alumni 
House and the Katherine K. Buckner Distinguished Presentation Series 
in Literature and Creative Writing. In 1990, Green was named UNCW 
Alumnus of the Year. 

When Green entered UNCW, the campus had only four buildings 
and had grown to 10 buildings when he graduated. The student body 
was about 900 students, compared with 10,000 today. 

Green has maintained interest in the subjects he loved as an 



by purchasing a collection of official 
records from Union and Confederate 
armies during the American Civil War for 
the university library. 

In 1987, Green set up a scholarship 
endowment in the business school, 
named for his grandfather, J.W. Jackson. 
The endowment provides three 
scholarships of $2,000 a year to business students, based on merit. 

Two years later, Green helped establish the Thomas Moseley 
Faculty Development Fund in the History Department, the first fund 
established to support professional development for UNCW faculty.

It's a crisp October day, and Betty Duffey, marketing and 
promotions director for Domino's Pizza in New Hanover County, 
has just returned from the UNCW career day where she spoke to 
students about career opportunities with Domino's. Duffey may have 
graduated from UNCW in 1994, but she still probably spends as much 
time on campus as she did in her days as a fine arts major and 
member of the number-two-in-the-nation UNCW cheerleading squad. 

Since two days after she graduated, Duffey has been marketing 
for Domino's, and the campus has been her territory. "Our College 
Acres store is right next to campus, and the campus is our major 
customer. They buy so much pizza that we try to give back to UNCW 
as much as we can," Duffey says. 

Domino's has given back to the university in a big way. It donates 
pizza for events at the Cameron School of Business and for fraternity 
and sorority functions. Domino's provided enough pizza to feed all the 
freshmen at orientation and had a move-in day celebration where 
pizzas were provided for incoming freshmen and their parents. "We 
also feed the women's and men's basketball teams when they have late 
practices," Duffey says. "In return, they give us memorabilia to 
decorate the College Acres store." 

Domino's delivers more than food to UNCW. They sponsor 
Roomers, a newsletter for on-campus housing residents, and The 
Domino Effect, a newsletter of UNCW student activities. Domino's 
funds journal subscriptions at Randall Library. And it joined with the 
campus Leadership Center in sponsoring Seahawk Surge into the 
Streets, a community service project. 

Last March, Domino's worked with the UNCW baseball team in 
sponsoring the Baseball Challenge tournament. And Domino's donates 
gift certificates as prizes for intramural champions, provides T-shirts 



for UNCW cheerleaders for camps and feeds pizza to all the people 
who attend the homecoming bonfire. 

That's not all. This Halloween, Domino's worked with the UNCW 
student ambassadors to host Wilmington West Rotary Club's Haunted 
House, with proceeds going to Lower Cape Fear Hospice. UNCW staff 
members are also on the receiving end of Domino's campus beneficence: 
The Domino's Good Deed Award is presented to the staff member who 
does something positive for his or her university department. 

Betty Duffey's territory does not end with the campus, however. 
She and Domino's are quite active in community support as well: 
Domino's is a grand patron of both the Azalea Festival and Riverfest, 
hosts golf and basketball events on behalf of Toys for Tots and works in 
support of United Cerebral Palsey (UCP). 

Duffey is particularly proud of one community project. "In the 
local elementary schools we have a program called Math Superstars," 
she explains. "We've entertained as many as 200 children at one time!" 

And Duffey is proud of her alma mater. "The thing I like most 
about UNCW is the closeness you feel with both the students and 
professors. Everybody knows everybody, and you feel so comfortable." 

One professor stands out in her memory, she says. "Margie 
Worthington was one of my fine arts professors, and she opened a lot 
of doors for me. Most important, she showed me how to be a strong 
and independent woman." 

Now the Jacksonville native has parlayed that positive energy into 
making good things happen for Domino's, her university and her com- 
munity. "My title is marketing and promotions, but my job is goodwill 
ambassador for Domino's," Duffey says. "People like to see me coming 
because I'm usually giving away free pizza! That's why I enjoy my job so 
much."

When it comes to Jessiebeth 
Geddie's loyalty to the 
University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington, you could say she goes 
about the business of staying involved 
with her alma mater the way most of us 
go about the business of breathing. For 
Geddie, making good things happen at 
UNCW is a day-to-day occurrence. 

Since 1988, she's been sales 
manager and clothes buyer at the 
campus bookstore, where, she says, 
"The highlight of my day is interacting 
with students. I also serve on quite a 
few campus committees with students." 
And she's a bit of a surrogate parent for 
those students, too. "Yes, 1 laugh and 
say I'm the mother away from home. 
Students will ask for advice about 
finding a job, recommendations of a 
dentist, a lot of that kind of thing." 

And after hours, she spends a great amount of her time interactin 
with students from the past — her fellow UNCW alumni. In 1985, 
Geddie helped found the Cape Fear Chapter of the UNCW Alumni 
Association, comprising New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties. 
As chairperson, she developed the Cape Fear Chapter as the host chapter

of the alumni association. That means that all major campus events — 
homecoming, commencement, inauguration of a new chancellor — 
are hosted by the Cape Fear alumni group. 

"I laugh and say 

I'm the mother 
away from home." 

As chapter chairperson, Geddie served on the alumni association 
board for three years before she became a lull board member and then 
chairman, serving from 1994 to 1995. She now serves the association 
as past chairman. Asked what association projects she enjoyed most, 
Geddie quickly answers: The Wise House Designers Showcase! 

Wise House, donated to the university by Jessie Kenan Wise heirs, 
had sat empty for many years when the university offered it to the 
alumni association. For the first stage of restoration — including 
plumbing, heating and air conditioning — the association secured a 
loan of $400,000 with a four-year pay back schedule. 

The first year's project to help pay back the loan was to "sell" 
renovated and restored pieces of the house to donors. The second year's 
project was the designers showcase that Geddie co-chaired with Connie 
Parker, president of the Friends of UNCW, co-sponsors of the event. 

"We had more than 1,000 volunteers over a three-week period 
hosting the open house," Geddie recalls. "Martha Stewart came and did 
a luncheon and lecture, and we had a gift shop in the backyard. And it 
was all kicked off by a black-tie gala with tickets at $75 per person. It 
was the largest such community effort ever held in Wilmington." 
And a successful project as well. The two projects together left 



the association with only a $1 75,000 balance left to pay off and two 
more years in which to do it. Plans are already underway for project 
number three to take place in April - a fantasy auction, where donors 
can bid on opportunities to assist in coaching the men's basketball 
team for a night, to spend a week skiing in Breckenridge, Colorado, or 
to drive an earth-mover! "lust things people may have always dreamed 
of doing, but never thought they could," Geddie explains. 

Motivating people comes naturally to Geddie who thinks the 
most important role of the association is to keep alumni involved with 
their alma mater. She proudly points to one recent event as 
emblematic of that goal. "Recently, we had our first Wilmington 
College reunion for alums from [946 to 1969, and we had an 
overwhelming response. There were a lot of them at this reunion that 
had never been to the new campus. 

"More than 100 came to a Friday night wine and cheese reception 
at the Wise House, and 225 came for the Saturday night program and 
dance. In fact, at 12:15, when the music stopped, everyone looked like, 
'Can't we go some more?'" 

Geddie plans to build on that enthusiasm by creating the Green 
and Gold society for Wilmington College alumni to help keep them in 
touch with fellow UNCW alumni. "All our diplomas are worth even 
more than when we received them, and I think we all should stand up 
and say, 'I'm proud to be a Wilmington College/UNCW alum!'" 



HM-IS ANNUAL REPORT 



MICKEY 



When James Michael "Mickey" Corcoran was a student at 
UNCW in the 1960s, there were only three buildings on 
campus. The university's current administration building was the 
library, and the large live oaks that adorn campus were only saplings. 

Like the live oaks, the university has grown from a sapling into a 
prominent institution for higher learning. Corcoran, president of 
Woodruff Distributing Co. in New Bern, is proud of the way the 
university has grown and is pleased to have been a part. 

Corcoran is a member of the UNCW Board of Trustees and has 
served on the UNCW alumni board. He also is a member of the 
Seahawk Club and a supporter of UNCW athletics. 

"I've always cared through the years and tried to make the 
contributions that I could," he says. "I wanted to help the other 
students who came after me, just as someone else contributed when I 
was there." 

Corcoran is particularly proud of the university's emphasis on 
quality undergraduate teaching. He remembers how his own 
professors inspired and taught him. 

"They made a lasting impressing on 
me personally and in my career. Good 
professors inspire you to reach down and 
think, to come up with your own answers,' 
he says.

He also is pleased with the support that the university provides to 
its undergraduates from career counseling to tutorial programs to 
technology. 

Corcoran is proud that UNCW is offering a master's degree 
program in marine science program that "will solidify us as a leader in 
that field on the East Coast," he says. 

As an avid Seahawk supporter, Corcoran enjoys Seahawk 
basketball most of all. He feels athletic teams can serve as 
ambassadors for UNCW. 

Two of Corcoran's three daughters have attended UNCW. One 
daughter is a senior majoring in history and government, and another 
completed her freshman year at UNCW. "It's kind of exciting to have 
your children go to school where you went," he says. 



"Good professors inspire you 
to reach down and think, 

to come up with 

your own answers." 



Corcoran encourages other alumni to contribute to UNCW, saying 
"the return on your investment is a better society."

ALUMNI PROFILE 



Support comes in many ways from active alum 



BY marybeth k. bianchi 

A "maternal instinct" is 
what has motivated Janice 
Specter Kingoff to volun- 
teer her energy and talents to the 
University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington and Wilmington area 
organizations. 

"I've done a lot of things in the 
community, and I've learned a great 
deal. I'm very interested in UNCW 
and helping it grow," said Kingoff. 
"I have a special interest, like a ma- 
ternal interest." 

For her many efforts over the 
years she was presented with the 
UNCW Alumni Association's 1996 
Distinguished Alumna Award dur- 
ing Homecoming weekend. 

"It's important to help people 
and help get things done. I like do- 
ing it. I get a lot of satisfaction from 
helping," she said. Until illness 
slowed her pace in recent years, 
Kingoff always found time between 
family and business responsibilities 
to support important causes. 

Kingoff was a nontraditional 
student at UNCW. She had 
dropped out of UNC-G to marry 
and raise three sons, but she always 
heard her mother's voice telling her: 
"Anything that wasn't right in my 
life was my fault because I didn't 
finish college." 

So in 1975 she went back to 
school, and by 1977 she had earned 
a bachelor's degree in business. 

In 1978 she joined Friends of 
UNCW and has served on its board 
of directors ever since. She has also 
been the group's president and is 
noted for her work on the gifts com- 
mittee, which decides what the 
money raised will be spent on. 

"Whatever we take in we give 
back. The only thing we spend 
money on is stamps and invitations, 
and even the interest covers that," 
Kingoff said. "If we raised $8,300, 
we'd give away $8,000. It does make 



a difference. 

"I enjoy doing all that 
work. It's very gratifying. 
Everything goes back to the 
school." 

Money raised by the 
Friends has been used to 
help faculty members get 
those things that would pro- 
vide extra incentive to then 
students, teaching aids, 
flags, a piano for the music 
department, books tor the 
library, a breathalyzer tor the 
campus police and comput- 
ers. However, the "best gift" 
or the one most appreciated 
by students was a television 
set for the University 
Union, Kingoff said. 

Kingoff is also a big sup- 
porter of UNCW's Museum 
of World Cultures, founded 
by retired professor Dr. 
Gerald Shinn. 

"Dr. Shinn said I was 
the first person to sign up," she 
said. A unique feature of the 
UNCW campus, the museum is not 
based in a single location, but 
rather consists of dozens of artifacts 
displayed in all academic and ad- 
ministrative buildings. 

"It's there for them to soak up 
and enjoy. Students, by osmosis, will 
learn culture," Kingoff explained. 

When the Friends joined the 
UNCW Alumni Association in 
sponsoring the Wise Alumni House 
Designers Showcase, illness kept Kin- 
goff from active participation. Still, 
she wanted a role in the project. 

"I had really wanted to do so 
much," she said. 

Kingoff did find a way to help. 

The Cape Fear Garden Club 
donated money for renovation of 
the sunken garden, but as Kingoff 
said, "In every renovation, there's 
something that gets pushed aside, 




Janice Kingoff '77 and her family donated the cascading 
water fountain at the Wise Alumni House sunken garden 
in memory of their son 

and I happened to fill that void. It 
was my way of sharing and being a 
part, which was important to me." 

She and her family purchased a 
cascading fountain which was 
placed at the center ot the garden, 
and gave it to Wise Alumni House 
in memory ot their son, Robert 
Alex Kingoff. 

"He was a lawyer and a singer, 
always in the middle of everything, 
babbling. It was a fining gift," she 
said with a smile. 

When she's not volunteering, 
Kingoff still enjoys coming to cam- 
pus whether it's for an Adult Schol- 
ars luncheon sponsored by the 
Division for Public Service and Ex- 
tended Education or for a Seahawk 
basketball game. 

"Of course, I'm a Seahawk," 

she said. "We love the games, and 

it's nice to have a reason to come 

over to the campus."

FACULTY 



Lawson takes volunteer effort to Europe 



By Ben Tew 

Just part of a large effort. That's 
how Dr. Luther Lawson, recipi- 
ent of the UNCW Alumni As- 
sociation 1996 Distinguished 
Citizen Award, describes his in- 
volvement on campus and in the 
community. 

Lawson, who has taught eco- 
nomics in the Cameron School of 
Business at UNCW since 1983, 
said all of the professors in the 
Cameron School are active volun- 
teers. They feel professors who be- 
lieve in their university and 
community should contribute. 

Lawson's contribution began 
with his involvement on the 
board ot directors at the 
Wilmington YMCA. 

"I was just one little cog," he 
said about his involvement in a 
capital campaign effort to pur- 
chase a new swimming pool for 
the YMCA and improve the 
structure of the YMCA building. 

In 1992, he received the 
Distinguished Fund-Raising 
Award for his work as chairman 
of a sustaining drive to taise 
money tor scholarships for kids 
who couldn't afford YMCA 
membership fees. 

As part of the Wilming- 
ton Chamber of Commerce 
education foundation commit- 
tee, Lawson promotes the link 
between the public school sys- 
tem and the business commu- 
nity. He realizes the 
importance of keeping the 
business community in touch 
with young students while 
giving students exposure to 
today's business world. 

He was insttumental in 
bringing Junior Achievement to 
Wilmington by establishing a 
partnership between Junior 
Achievement of Charlotte to 



help get the local organization off 
the ground. For the last 13 years he 
has been the area coordinator for 
Junior Achievement in New Ha- 
nover and Brunswick counties. 

Since 1988 he has served as 
chairman of Junior Achievement's 
executive council which, with help 
from an operating committee, raises 
money to bring business men and 
women into ninth grade classrooms 
to teach economics. He also assists 
in training teacher/coordinators and 
implementing and monitoring pro- 
grams which have involved more 
than \000 area students. 

"I would not be as successful 




Dr. Luther Lawson will be leaving UNCW's Cameroi 
of Business for a temporary assignment in Europe to 
implement Junior Achievement, which he brought to 
Wilmington in the 1980s. 



with Junior Achievement if it were 
not tor the help of a lot of people," 
commented Lawson. While work- 
ing with Junior Achievement in 
Wilmington he has built participa- 
tion from only seven businesses to 
the 33 currently involved. 

Due to his active involvement 
and success with Junior Achieve- 
ment, Lawson is the recipient ot 
the 1996 Faculty Reassignment 
Grant tor a thtee-month stay in 
eastern and central Europe to 
implement Junior Achievement 
there through Junior Achievement 
International. 

"1 could never get everything 
done right in three months," 
he noted, and so he will 
spend July to December visit- 
ing seven former communist 
countries to implement Junior 
Achievement and develop li- 
aisons for UNCW and the 
Cameron School of Business. 

He also serves as the asso- 
ciate director tor the Centet 
for Economics Education 
which provides training 
(seminars and workshops) for 
area high school teachers. 

On campus, he serves as 
the advisor to Beta Gamma 
Sigma, a business fraternity 
whose membership is by in- 
vitation, based on the high- 
est grade point averages in 
the Cameton School of 
Business. He is also proud to 
serve as the advisor the Eco- 
nomics Club. 

"1 love the chance it 
gives me to meet some of the 
great kids who are a part of 
the business school," he said.

You can insure the future of UNCW students 



BY M. TYRONE ROWELL 



you 



It you have possessions 
have an estate. Their orderly 
care during your lifetime repre- 
sents financial management. Their 
disposition after your Lifetime is 
called estate settlement. Deciding 
in advance how this will he done 
is known as estate planning. It's 
that simple. 

And yet, tor many reasons, it's 
easy to put off estate planning. 
Today's pleasures and challenges 
compete for our attention. Many 
UNCW and Wilmington College 
alumni are well established in their 
careers and are now reviewing their 
estate plans. Some estate planning 
documents include your will, a 
trust, lite insurance or gifts of ap- 
preciated property. These items 
may make it possible for you to 
make long-range plans to support 
UNCW through the establishment 
of a scholarship or to support a pro- 
gram which was especially helpful 
to you during your college days. 

As the University of North 
Carolina at Wilmington nears its 
50th anniversary, a growing num- 
ber of alumni and friends are using 
this occasion to establish a campus 
scholarship in memory of a family 
member or favorite professor. Some 
of these donors have found that 
the perfect way to establish this 
program is through the gift of life- 
insurance. 

Most of us invest in insurance 
to provide protection for family 
during the times they need it most; 
however, conditions change. 
Maybe your children or other de- 
pendents are now grown and you 
have accumulated an estate of 
other assets. You may not need all 
that life insurance coverage. Such a 
policy could be the perfect vehicle 
for funding a scholarship at 
UNCW. In addition to providing a 




Rowel I 



memorial gift, 
the donor could 
also receive an 
income tax 
charitable de- 
duction when 
UNCW is 
named as ben- 
eficiary of a 
policy and you 
irrevocably as- 
sign to us all incidents of ownership. 

If you wanted to fund a schol- 
arship by contributing a paid-up 
policy, your income tax charitable 
deduction is based on what it 
would cost to replace the policy 
at your present age and health. 
Policies on which you continue 
to pay premiums can also be used 
to make a gift to UNCW. If you 
continue to pay the 
premiums, you 
are entitled 
to a chari- 
table deduc- 
tion in the 
amount of 
the annual 
premium. 

The 
university 
is now 
partici- 
pating in 
a special 
insurance 
program 
which uses a 
five-year pre- 
mium to fund ei- 
ther a $25,000, $50,000 or 
$100,000 life insurance policy to 
benefit UNCW. During this five- 
year period, not only will the 
policy be completely paid tor but a 
portion of the premium will be re- 
turned to the university to assist 
with the annual fund drive. This 




allows you in provide both a cur- 
rent and deferred gill to UNCW. 

The program involves a donor 
making a five-year pledge to cover 
the premium costs which are based 
on his/her age and general health 
condition. The donor allows the 
university to purchase an insurance 
policy on his/her lite. The policy 
would be owned by UNCW which 
would also be the beneficiary. It re- 
quires the donor to make five an- 
nual gills to (he university. 

There are several advantages of 
using a lite insurance policy to make 
a gift to UNCW. It is possible to 
make a larger gift than might be 
possible otherwise and the amount 
may be guaranteed. Also, such gifts 
are not subject to probate nor can 
they be contested by heirs. 

An endowed scholarship is a 
perfect way to cre- 
ate a perma- 
nent 
memorial 
for a 
friend or 
family 
member. It 
will always 
be part of 
the univer- 
sity financial 
aid program 
and be listed 
in appropriate 
university publ- 
ications. It you 
have any ques- 
tions or would like 
to discuss this pro- 
gram or any other way to benefit 
UNCW please call the university 
foundation office at (010) 395-3170.

The Fund-amentals of Giving 

UNCW's Loyalty Fund 



BY MICHELLE CONGER 

The UNCW Loyalty Fund is 
the university's unrestricted 
giving program. 

Private gifts support many vi- 
tally important projects and pro- 
grams not budgeted through a 
specific college or department. These 
programs cut across many disciplines 
and enhance the overall quality of 
life throughout UNCW's campus. 

U.S.News & World Report has 
ranked UNCW among the top 20 re- 
gional universities in the South. This 
achievement was in part the result of 
excellent faculty and student enrich- 
ment programs made possible through 
private gifts. 

The true challenge we face each 
year is how to maintain these programs 
in light of continued state budget cuts 
and declining appropriations. The an- 
swer is private support. The challenge 
our staff accepts is to help our alumni 
and friends understand just how critical 
this need is and what a significant and 
sometimes lifelong difference their con- 
tributions can make. 

Did you know that: 

• Some scholarships are only par- 
tially paid because we do not have 
enough money to endow the full 
amount. 

• UNCW has wonderful Teaching 
Fellows and honors programs, but 
enrollment for the total number of 
students is impossible because of a 
lack of funding. 

• Faculty and staff oftentimes take 
money out of their own pockets 
to send students and themselves 
to special programs because there 
is no budget for them to do this. 
The Loyalty Fund strives to sup- 
port these programs and more. And, as 
UNCW continues to grow, so too will 
its needs. Sufficient resources must be 
found to ensure that quality educa- 
tional opportunities remain available 



to faculty, students and our south- 
eastern North Carolina community. 

LJNCW needs those special in- 
dividuals, businesses and corpora- 
tions who understand how 
important private gifts are to the es- 
sence and longevity of this institu- 
tion. Your support is integral in 
ensuring that tomorrow's faculty and 
students will have the advantage of 
opportunities and resources that al- 
low them to receive the best higher 



education possible at UNCW. Your 
investment in education is an in- 
vestment in the future. 

If you have not joined the many 
supporters of UNCW's Loyalty Fund, 
please consider a gift this year. If you 
have pledged a gift, we wish to ex- 
press our sincere thanks. 

Michelle Conger is the director 
of development in UNCW's Divi- 
sion for University Advancement. 



Camerons honored for philanthropy 



Long-time supporters of the 
University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington, Dan, Betty, Bruce 
and Louise Cameron were named 
19 L )5 Philanthropists of the Year 
by the Cape Fear Area Chapter of 
the National Society of Fund-rais- 
ing Executives. 

The Cameron family has long

ing the YWCA, the Boy Scouts, the 
Community Boys and Girls Club, 
New Hanover Regional Medical 
Center, Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 
the United Way and UNCW's 
Cameron School of Business. 

The frequency of support and 
wide range of interests clearly iden- 
tity the Cameron family as a major 
factor in the growth and health of 
this region.

Pi Kappa Phi 
pledges support 
to Wise House 



Support for UNCW's Wise 
Alumni House continues to 
blossom, and the alumni as- 
sociation is getting ever closer to 
paying off its $400,000 debt to 
United Carolina Bank. 

In an effort spearheaded by 
alumni association board mem- 
ber, John Baldwin 72, the broth- 
ers of Pi Kappa Phi decided to 
take on the challenge of purchas- 
ing the grand room at Wise 
Alumni House which bears a price- 
tag of $25,000. So far they have 
pledged a total of $2 1,000 toward 
that goal. 

In addition to Baldwin, brothers 
who have made $500 to $1,000 
pledges include Larry Brammer 71, 
Gary Chadvvick '69, Mickey Corco-

Association proposes bylaw 
changes for AAGA membership 



The African American 
Graduates Association 
(AAGA) started with only 
nine members. Now it maintains 
contact with more than 250 people 
and is still growing. The success of 
the organization has it moving to- 
ward even larger things. 

AAGA was founded on No- 
vember 19, 1989. According to 
Ronald Hamm '90, president of 
AAGA, it was established as a net- 
work of support and fellowship 
among African American graduates 
from UNCW. 

"We wanted to offer support to 
the minority students currently en- 
rolled in the university and to keep 
in contact with them and help 
them professionally once they 
graduate," he said. 

Another major focus of the or- 
ganization has been to recommend 
students and faculty to the univer- 
sity. They help support and work 
closely with the Office of Minority 
Affairs so that they can have a con- 
nection with students and happen- 
ings on campus. 

In order to keep unity within 
the small group of African American 



Alums to gather for 
( Old Boys' rugby 

The UNCW Rugby Club will 

host its fourth annual Old Boys 
Game on April 20. 

Rugby players who attended 
and/or played tor UNCW are en- 
couraged to participate in a week- 
end ot rugby, golf and 
reminiscence. The match will take 
place at Wrightsville Beach Park 
on Causeway Drive. 

Interested alums can call Eric 
Carlson '93 at 910-256-6014 for 
more information. 



graduates and students, AAGA was 
started and has continued to operate 
separately from the UNCW Alumni 
Association. But that is expected to 
change within the next year. 

"It was our hope to establish an 
effective network amongst ourselves 
and then merge and become a con- 
stituent chapter of the alumni asso- 
ciation," said Hamm. 

Tat Corcoran '72, director of 
Alumni Relations, explained that 
the alumni association currently 
recognizes only chapters estab- 
lished on the basis of geographic 
location or school but that the as- 
sociation has proposed revising its 
by-laws so AAGA will be recog- 
nized as a constituent chapter of 
the UNCW Alumni Association. 
She believes the joint relationship 
will benefit all alumni. 



Piano finds home 
at 'Miss Jessies' 

The sound of music is echoing 
through Wise Alumni House thanks 
to Norma Sellars Grabenstein. Mrs. 
Grabenstein, who attended Wilm- 
ington College from 1954 to 1956, 
donated an antique Knabe square 
grand piano to the UNCW Alumni 
Association. 

This piano, which accents Miss 
Jessie's music room, was donated by 
Mrs. Grabenstein in memory of her 
late husband, Eugene Edward 
Grabenstein, who restored the un- 
usual, ornately carved rosewood pi- 
ano to its current condition. 

Mrs. Grabenstein has many 
fond memories and lifelong friend- 
ships from her college days. Looking 
back on at those times, she says, 
"The two best years ot my life were 
spent at Wilmington College." 



Aquahawks come to the aid 
of UNCW swimmers , divers 



The Aquahawks are making 
waves. They are causing 
swells of support for their 
favorite athletic teams on campus. 

"The door was opened for the 
possibility of this group when the 
university developed a system to al- 
low donations to go to a specific 
organization like the swim team," 
said Sam O'Leary '84, one of the 
more active members. "We all 
wanted to support the swimming 
and diving teams." 

The group got the ball rolling 
last spring with a weekend social. 
They stayed in the residence halls, 
held an alumni swim meet and de- 
cided to form a club solely to sup- 
port the swim team. 

"We just like to have a lot of 



tun and support the swim team, 
too," O'Leary said. 

With help from Kevin Donovan, 
the executive director of the Sea- 
hawk Club, contributions for the 
swimming and diving teams were es- 
tablished on three levels. Benefits for 
Charter Members - the highest level 
ot contribution which requires a 
$1,000 annual pledge over a four- 
year period - include a special en- 
graved plaque, an official team 
warm-up suit, name recognition on 
UNCW's new electronic scoreboard 
and the Seahawk newsletter. 

The Aquahawks hope with 
their support the swimming and 
diving teams will bring the Colo- 
nial Athletic Association champi- 
onship trophy home to UNCW.

D i rector } s Message 



In our 49 years as an institution 
of higher learning, we have ac- 
quired approximately 23,000 
Wilmington College and UNCW 
Alumni. During the next rive years, 
we will experience an enormous 
amount of growth to propel our 
numbers to 12,000. The potential 
th.it these additional 9,000 alumni 
bring to UNCW and our current 
numbers is wondrous to imagine. 

Our largest number of alumni 
is located in our own backyard - 
southeastern North Carolina. They 
have plenty of opportunities to par- 
ticipate in events, activities, ex- 
tended education and volunteer 
service to UNCW. We provide 
many services and a significant 
amount of revenue to the univer 
sity by our contributions of dollars, 
time and talents. 

With growth of our alumni 
base comes the opportunity to in- 



;*feJ» 



crease in significant ways our sup- 
port to the institution that has 
served us so well. 

We are the doers and donors, a 
network of vol- 
unteers who will 
conl mue to sup- 
port and serve in 
greater propor- 
tions. The link

Chairman's Report 



Did you ever daydream when 
you were sitting in your En- 
glish 101 class? 
Or, did your mind wander 
when the professor spoke ot the re- 
lationship between bond interest 
rates and stock 
prices. 

Or did it 
happen to you 
while driving to 
work one morn- 
ing? You were 
stopped at a red 
light and you 
imagined your- 
self driving a 

j. j Sfas/'os '70 

new candied 

apple red BMW. Then, the jerk be- 
hind you blew his horn and reality 
set in. The light turned yellow, and 
you almost missed your turn. 
What's your fantasy? 




The UNCW Alumni 
Association's fantasy is to pay off 
the remaining mortgage balance 
on our loan. We plan to do that 
with the proceeds from our Fan- 
tasy Auction which will take place 
on April 20. 

Last yeat, our primary fund 
raiser was the Wise House Design- 
ers Showcase. The results exceeded 
our expectations. We need your 
support this year to make our Fan- 
tasy Auction equally as successful. 

Come join your fellow alumni, 
friends, university faculty and staff 
as we fulfill out fantasies. Mark 
your calendar now. The date is 
April 20 and the location is the 
University Center Ballroom. Be 
there or you may miss the opportu- 
nity to see your fantasy come true.

SHORT 



I submit that the graduating class 
of 1950 was the best represented 
at the Wilmington College Re- 
union. Eight members of the gradu- 
ating class of 25 were present. They 
were Donald 

Blake, Adelaide 
Wilson, Gene 
Warren, Robbie 
Benson, Donald 
"Turkey" Edwards, 
Fred Sternberger, 
Paul Marley and I. 
This was better 
than 30 percent. 

Donald "Tur- 
key" Edwards came 
430 miles from 
Jacksonville, Fla., 
the greatest dis- 
tance traveled by a 
graduate. My wife 

and I drove 400 miles from Silver 
Spring, Md. Huck Moore, a classmate, 
also drove from Florida. 

Seated at the table near the video 
screen on Saturday night were Walter 
Biggs, Shunie Potter and I. The thtee of us 
took basic training togethet at Fort Jack- 



son, S.C., in the summer of 1954- I had 
not seen Waltet or Shunie since then. 

I enjoyed meeting and talking 
with Cathy Manning Gieschen who 
graduated from Annandale High 




The Wilmington College reunion brought graduates Edward 6. 
"Shunie" Potter, Martin Rabunsky and Waller Biggs together for the 
first time since basic training at Fort Jackson, S.C 



School in Fairfax County, Va., where 
I taught from 1957 to 1962. 

Best of all 1 saw and talked with 
many old friends and look forward to 
making new ones through a renewed 
association with UNCW.

Two hurricanes topple trees around campus 




Towering pine Irees on campus 
near Westside Hall were 
uprooted and snapped off by the 
winds and rains of Hurricane 
Fran. More than 400 trees were 
damaged 



A section of copper 

roofing hangs from 

King Hall which was 

surrounded by downed 

trees following 

Hurricane Fran. 




Socked hy two hurricanes in one 
season, the UNCW campus is 
counting its blessings and its 
downed trees. More than 500 trees 
were lost and several buildings were 
damaged, bringing the estimated 
damage costs of the two storms to 
over $1 million. 

The arrival of Bertha on July 1 1 
closed campus. Luckily, few students 
were staying in the residence halls at 
the time so evacuation was swift. The 
more minimal of the two hurricanes, 
Bertha downed 80 trees, dumped a 
lot of rain and cut power. The $60,000 
in estimated damages was a result of 
the lack of power in the area of scien- 
tific research. 

Fran, on the other hand, who's 
eye passed directly over the Cape Fear 
area, caused many more problems. The 
fall semester was in full swing as the 
category 3 storm neared the coast on 
September 5. But again, there was 
enough warning to allow for the safe 
evacuation of students. Only 1 5 stayed 
to weather the storm out with emer- 
gency personnel. 

When the sun rose on September 
6, the normally pleasant view was ob- 
scured by massive numbers of downed 
trees, 436 in all. The high winds tore 
shingles off several buildings and sent 
a section of Galloway Hall's roof to the 



ground. Roof and building repair costs 
have been estimated to be $700,000. 
The hurricane affected not only 
the campus, but faculty, staff and stu- 
dents who had to deal with the after- 
math. Nearly 400 students and 
numerous employees reside at area 



Leonard heads 
Anlyan leaves 

Nu m e r o us administrative 
changes took place during 
the summer months at 
UNCW. 

Former Dean of Students Pat 
Leonard, who since January had been 
serving as interim vice chancellor for 
Student Affairs, was appointed in 
May to the position on a permanent 
basis. Leonard has been at UNCW 
since 1983. Dr. William Bryan left 
the vice chancellorship to return to 
the classroom. 

Under Leonard's leadership, the 
division has been reorganized and the 
position of associate vice chancellor, 
which Richard Mullendore left in J tine 
to become vice chancellor for student 
lite at the University of Mississippi, 



beach communities which were 
heavily damaged. However, campus 
reopened for classes just five days af- 
ter Fran hit, and university officials 
organized a variety of programs to help 
those who were affected and to assist 
in the clean-up. 



Student Affairs, 
Advancement 

has been eliminated. Terrence Curran 
is dean of students. 

Bill Anlyan resigned as vice chan- 
cellor for University Advancement and 
Ty Rowell, associate vice chancellor, 
is filling in as interim until a perma- 
nent replacement can be found. Anlyan 
is credited with leading UNCW's suc- 
cessful capital campaign which ex- 
ceeded its $15 million goal. 

Melton McLaurin, who has been a 
faculty member and history department 
chair during his 19 years at UNCW, 
was named associate vice chancellor 
for Academic Affairs. He replaced Jo 
Ann Seiple who was named dean of 
the College of Arts and Sciences at 
UNCW. McLaurin was also one of 16 
educators in the state recognized by 
the UNC Board of Governors. 



UNCW construction projects delayed 



A 



heavy workload at the state construction office 
has led to a delay in the university's construction 



Ever since the 1993 bond referendum, which allotted 
money for construction projects throughout the UNC sys- 
tem, the state construction office has been overloaded with 
work, said Mark Lanier, special assistant to the chancellor. 
The first project to come from the 1993 bond issue was the 
UNCW Science Building that opened for classes this fall. 

All state construction projects, university and non- 
university, must be approved by the state construction 
office before any work can begin. An overload in that office 
has slowed UNCW's construction plans. 

An example of the slowdown is the campus commons 
project. The project was to be completed this summer, but 
ground has yet to be broken. 

"The plans have to go through state construction office 
three different times," said Dave Girardot, assistant vice 
chancellor of Business Affairs. He said all the university can 
do is get in line and wait tor the office to get to UNCW's 
projects. 

Campus commons has passed through state construc- 
tion for the last time and is now awaiting the final go-ahead 



from Genera! Ad- 
ministration. 

Girardot esti- 
mated that the 
project will begin 
in November or 
December. "We do 
not have a firm 
date," he said. 

Other univer- 
sity projects which 
have been delayed 
include the marine 
s c i e n c e c e n t er , 
which is three 
months behind 
schedule with an 
estimated comple- 
tion date of De- 




Chancellor James Leulze didn't use the big 
scissors at the Science Building ribbon 
culling in August Instead the act took an 
"explosive" turn with the help of chemistry 
professor Louis Adcock 



cember 1998; the Hawk's Nest expansion, scheduled for 
completion in January 1997; and the 200-car parking lot 
which will be done this year.

Edgerton s talk surprises convocation audience 



Leading the audience in a surpris- 
ing rendition of the poem 
"Toadsuckers," author Clyde 
Edgerton broke the formal pomp and 
circumstance to present a fall con- 
vocation speech that few are likely 
to forget. 

"I just wanted to do that," he 
told the crowd that filled Kenan Au- 
ditorium to overflowing. The hu- 
morous poem and the concluding "I 
Got the UNCW Blues" tune wete 
part of Edgerton's unique way of shar- 
ing his "five lessons of life" with the 
Class of 2000. 

"Wanting to do something may 
be the best reason for doing some- 
thing," he said, adding that while you 
shouldn't skirt responsibilities, you 
should listen to your heart. His other 
lessons dealt with the importance of 
learning and retelling one's family sto- 
ries for future generations. 




Author Clyde Edgerton relaxed with reporters 
before giving a rather nontraditional 
convocation address. 

On a more serious note, 15 in- 
structors and graduate teaching assis- 
tants were recognized for distinguished 
teaching. Fine arts professor Donald 
Furst received rhe Board of Trustees 
Teaching Excellence Award as well as 



a Distinguished Teaching Professor- 
ship Award. The former includes a 
$1,500 stipend, while the latter has a 
three-year, $5,000 stipend. Dr. Michael 
Wentworth, English, and Dr. Saul 
Bachner, specialty studies, also received 
Distinguished Teaching Professorships. 

Teaching Excellence Awards went 
to Frank Trimble, communication stud- 
ies; Dr. Charles Lewis, health, physical 
education and recreation; Dr. Daniel 
Noland, English; Doretha McKnight 
Stone, nursing; Dr. James R. Hunt, 
marketing and management; and Dr. 
Louis Lanunziata, canicular studies. 

Ibrahim Sadek, mathematical sci- 
ences, received the Faculty Scholar- 
ship Award. 

Graduate Teaching Excellence 
Awards went to Krista Barbour, Mar- 
tin Bullock, Katherine Langone, 
Michelle Manning, Kim Fimbel and 
Kathryn Reeves.

MoWKing is 
proud of r- 
UNCW ties^ 


BY MARYBETH K. Bianchi 



FALL 9 6 



He's built a business that has 
$73 million in annual 
sales, and yet Robert S. 
King '66 believes his proudest 
achievement is starting the UNCW 
Alumni Association. 

"The biggest thing I enjoyed 
accomplishing is the alumni asso- 
ciation," said King, who worked 
with Al Corbett '65 and Terry 
Horton '66 to form the organiza- 
tion in the early 1970s. 

Why did he do it? 

"I just wanted to," he said. "It was 
a challenge, something to do, let's get 
it off the ground and make it work." 

And work it did. With $1,000 
in seed money provided by then- 
Chancellor William Wagoner, the 
group started a fund-raising effort 
that continued for the next eight 
years. Pig pickin's, casino nights and 
other parties held in the service bay 
area at King's dealership on New 
Centre Drive drew upwards of 500 
people at each event. Special tables 
were made to fit in the vehicle lifts. 

"It was like a ballroom," King re- 
membered. "We made a lot of money." 

A Wilmington native and 
1960 New Hanover High School 
graduate, King spent his first col- 
lege days at North Carolina State 
University studying civil engineer- 
ing. But, he said, he wasn't happy. 

So, as the Vietnam War was es- 
calating, he dropped out to join the 
special forces National Guard. He 
served six months and signed up for 
six years in the reserves. He married 
Martha Small (New Hanover High 
School Class of '62), started a fam- 
ily and decided to finish his college 
education at Wilmington College 
where many of his friends were al- 
ready enrolled. 

King remembers getting in 
wasn't easy. 

Tommy Brown, who had 
taught him geometry in high 
school, was dean of students. The 
day before the enrollment deadline, 
he told King he needed a letter 
from NCSU stating that he was eli- 
gible for readmittance. A phone 
call wouldn't do. 




Bob King, seated far right, is pictured with the brothers of Sigma Phi Kappa. They are 
Albert Jewell, Dennis Frisbee, Dick Debnam, Allen Pennington, Billy Higgms, front row, Jack 
Harrell, Adair Graham, H.C Johnson, Greer Craig, Bobby Greer, Bill Reid, Robert Pales, 
C.F Hudson, back row 



"I don't think he thought I 
could get back in," King said. In 
the days before faxes and 1-40, King 
made the long drive on two-lane 
country roads to Raleigh, got his 
letter and drove back to 
Wilmington just in time to be ad- 
mitted as a business student at 
Wilmington College. 

"Although I didn't like it, I was 
impressed," King said. "I think that 
was a good policy. It started way 
back then: you weren't going to 
flunk out and come to UNCW." 

As a non-traditional student, 
King said he worked part-time at 
Fleishman's downtown, cared for 
his daughter while his wife had a 
full-time job, went to class, studied 
a lot and still had time to be active 
in a fraternity - Sigma Phi Kappa. 

Characterizing the fraternity as 
"real sincere," King said the brothers 
worked hard for national affiliation, 
which they achieved the semester af- 
ter he graduated. 

"It wasn't as much of a party fra- 
ternity as it may be today," King said. 
Many of the brothers were older and 
had been in the military. In fact, 
King said he'd often take his young 
daughter, Angie, with him to the fra- 
ternity house on Market Street. 

There were several twists of 
fate that lead King to the successful 
business he currently owns. 

Even before he earned his busi- 
ness degree from Wilmington Col- 



lege, King knew he wanted a career 
that would encompass his love of 
cars. Crowing up in the '50s with a 
mother who drove a '57 Chevy, King 
said, "I'd always been fascinated by 
cars. Everybody was a car buff, and I 
was one of those car buffs." 

With two uncles and his father in 
car-related businesses, King had the 
right connections tor his job search, 
hut was unable to make contact. So, 
he went to work at the new DuPont 
plant where he had a "good opportu- 
nity" for a career in computers. 

But as luck would have it, 
King's fate took another twist. 

The zone manager tor Pontiac in 
l lull. -Ik', who often vacatii ined M 
Kure Beach, was looking for an assis- 
tant car distributor. He saw King's 
name in his file among dozens of 
other possible candidates. His familiar 
connections with the Wilmington 
area were among the factors that led 
the manager to call King about the 
position on a Saturday and offer him 
the job on Sunday. 

"Talk about a needle in a hay- 
stack," King said. 

King worked his way up to dis- 
trict manager for Pontiac and relo- 
cated to Atlanta. Considered the 
zone manager's "fair-haired boy," 
King was among a select tew to be 
picked for a lucrative district sales 
manager position in Chicago.

Rebellious with a cause: 

The Class of 2000 is 
struggling to succeed 



y. By Vickie Yearby 



Freshman Gabe Ward may be a typical member of the Class of 2000. 



You've seen them around. 
Their baggy pants look like 
they'll slip to the ground 
any minute. Their bodies are deco- 
rated with brightly colored tattoos, 
and shiny gold rings hang from 
their ears and other body parts. 

They look strange, and you 
wonder what they're really like. 

They are members of the Class 
of 2000. 

Why is it they are often de- 
scribed as extreme, self-absorbed 
and aloof? Maybe their appearance 
is just misunderstood. 

Clothing and hairstyles change 
with every generation. The way 
students dress is a form of expres- 
sion that sets their generation 
apart. The irony of this constant 
struggle for individuality is that 
young people dress a certain way to 
fit in, not stand out. 

"It's not about being indi- 
vidual. It's about being accepted," 
said Matt Newton, freshman class 
president. He believes parents are 
more accepting of fashion trends 
that include dyed hair, tattoos and 
belly-button rings because they 
grew up in the '60s and '70s when 
fashion hit the extreme. 

But deep down inside, these 
students want what generations be- 
fore them strove for: success, mar- 
riage, family and happiness. They 



know that with so many people go- 
ing to college, that they must work 
harder to compete. 

After gathering information 
from more than a dozen freshmen, I 
found it ironic that most are not 
wrapped up in the problems plagu- 
ing society today. They are too 
busy striving for success in their 
own lives because they know that 
with so many people going to col- 
lege, the competition will be ex- 
tremely tough during school and 
after they graduate and enter the 
job force. 

If you look at the average SAT 
score for the Class of 2000, just un- 
der 1000, it is easy to see that these 
freshmen are not lazy underachiev- 
ers. This is the highest average score 
of any incoming class at UNCW. 
Colleges across the nation are expe- 
riencing this trend: higher scores, 
higher grades, better students. 

"This class is extremely com- 
petitive because it is tougher to get 
into college. We are up against 
more people," said Cindy 
Chapman, freshman class vice 
president. 

While Chapman is aware of so- 
cial problems that trouble her gen- 
eration, like teenage pregnancy and 
drugs, she chooses to concentrate 
on the "war for success." She be- 
lieves this is a major issue facing 
students today. In fact, Chapman 



sees society's problems as the driv- 
ing force to work harder to obtain 
her goals. 

"This generation has to have an 
inner incentive to do well because a 
lot of outside forces can sway us in 
the wrong direction," she said. 

College life is today very differ- 
ent from that experienced by the 
Class of 1946. Most of the students 
in the first class of Wilmington 
College had been in WW II and at- 
tended college on the GI Bill. 

"We were just getting adjusted 
to civilian life. We were still shaky 
from the war. It was hard to settle 
down and study," said Gene 
Edwards '46. Classes were taught in 
the afternoon and evening with 
little campus life during the 40s. 

In fact, there were still very few 
campus activities by the '70s. Mike 
Glancy '75, Wilmington attorney, 
said there was no campus life or vi- 
tality when he was a student. 

"It wasn't like what you see 
now. Today's students have a lot of 
energy. The campus then lacked 
the sense of community that is 
present today because so many stu- 
dents live on campus," he said. 

Glancy said today's students 
gain more knowledge and tolerance 
because they are exposed to a more 
diverse faculty and less traditional 
curriculum. 

Diversity is also prevalent in 



FALL 96 



the athletic program ottered at 
UNCW. Sports include Ultimate 
(Frishee), kayaking and sailing. 

William Brooks, who taught at 
UNCW for 40 years and retired in 
1991, said, "Wilmington College 
started off with only haskethall. 
There were no women's sports. 
Now it is about equal. I saw a 
steady growth over the years." 

UNCW's diverse sports pro- 
gram includes intramurals or club 
sports that allow more students to 
get involved in sports who may not 
be able to tullv commit to or make 
college teams. 

Newton believes most of his fel- 
low treshmen will become involved 
in some aspect of campus life be- 
cause UNCW offers something for 
everyone. He has already joined 
SGA and Belk Hall Government. 

"A lot of people are still home- 
sick, but they will become active as 
time goes on," he said. 

When they graduate in the year 
2000, thousands of students will 
walk out of universities nationwide, 
degree in hand, searching for jobs 



in a market that cannot satisfy so 
many individuals. Even with the 
advances in technology they have 
had access to while in college, there 
will be [usl too many people pour- 
ing into an already overcrowded 
marketplace. 



This generation 
has to have an 
inner incentive to 
do well because 
a lot of outside '"]] 
forces can s^* 4 




This is ,i concern that most 
college graduates of the '90s share, 
and it appears that finding a job 
will only gel tougher tor the Class 
of 2000. However, they are prepar- 
ing tn meet that challenge as they 
focus on achieving success. 

This freshman class is really no dif- 
ferent than generations before them. 

Every generation has struggled 
with serious social issues. They 
strive for individuality, but so lias 
every other generation before them. 

The Class of 2000 can not be 
characterized in a few sentences or 
paragraphs, as 1 thought when I be- 
gan my journey into their lives. 
They taught me that clothing, 
pierced body parts and bagg\ pants 
are merely forms of expression. 
They are level-headed, determined 
and goal-oriented. 

Students in this freshman class 
are uninterested in negative labels 
given to their generation. They are 
too busy striving for success.

ALUMNI APPEAL MARKS 
UNCW'S GOLDEN YEAR 



That was the first year of op- 
eration for Wilmington College. 

It's also the amount we are ask- 
ing all alumni to donate to help the 
UNCW Alumni Association make 
its final payment on the $400,000 
Wise Alumni House renovation 
loan from United Carolina Bank. 

As the University of North 
Carolina at Wilmington begins the 
celebration of its golden anniver- 
sary in 1997, the alumni associa- 



tion is making this unprecedented 
effort to pay off its debt. The bal- 
ance of the loan, taken out in 
1993, is $109,500, and the associa- 
tion is planning to make that final 
payment on the banknote, along 
with interest, on June 2, 1997. 

But we can't do it without the 
help of all alumni, like you. 

Successful fund raisers, like the 
Designers Showcase and the Fan- 
tasy Auction, reduced the debt sig- 
nificantly. Alumni, university 
friends and the community all par- 
ticipated. This tall, however, we 
are making a concerted effort to 
reach all Wilmington College and 



UNCW alumni and ask for their 
assistance in paying oft the debt. 

This tall you will be receiving 
information on the $19.47 Wise 
Alumni House appeal. Please take 
the time to read the material and 
send a minimum donation of $19.47. 

Together we can make a 
difference. 

All contributors will he invited 
to the dedication of Wise Alumni 
House on June 7, 1997. It you or 
alumni you know haven't received 
information on the $19.47 appeal, 
please contact the Wise Alumni 
House at 910-251-2682 or 800- 
596-2880.

King's GMC Jimmy 

leads drive to retire 

Wise House note 



In the market for a new vehicle? 
Want to get a great deal and help 
a good cause at the same time? 

The UNCW Alumni Asso- 
ciation is selling a limited num- 
ber of tickets for the February 8 
drawing of a 1996 GMC Jimmy. 
All money raised will be used to 
retire the $400,000 note the 
association took out in 1993 with 
United Carolina Bank to reno- 
vate Wise Alumni House. On 
June 2, 1997, the association 
expects to make the final pay- 
ment of $109,500. 

The GMC Jimmy (pictured 
on the cover of UNCW Maga- 
zine), donated by Robert S. King 
'66, owner of Bob King Automall 
in Wilmington, is valued at 
$29,200. It is a four-door 
Seahawk green model with 
leather interior. 

Only 2,857 tickets will be 
sold. They can be purchased from 
alumni association board mem- 
bers, at the UNCW Information 
Center and at Bob King Automall 
for $35 each. 

Tickets will also be sold at 
home men's basketball games and 
can be purchased with Visa or 
MasterCard by calling the Wise 
Alumni House at 800-596-2880 
or 251-2682. 



Bob King, continued from page 5 

"It was a learning experience, I 
can assure you," he said. 

However, it wasn't long before his 
life would take another unexpected turn. 

In 1972 John Pistolis '65, who had 
worked with King at Fleishman's, con- 
vinced Ed Harris, owner of Wilmington's 
Pontiac dealership, to consider King, 
who wasn't happy living in Chicago, as 
a partner. 

Just like a car salesman, King 
made Harris a counter offer. He 
wanted 25 percent of the company's 
stock and to become a dealer. 

"I was a little leery about it," King 
said. "It it wasn't for my hometown, I 
wouldn't have thought about it." His 
boss in Chicago told him if he didn't 
like that job after a year, he could 
come back. 

"As it worked out, I bought the 
business in 1978," King said. "It's been 
a struggle. It took a while to build our 
organization and reputation. I think 
we've done that." 

King moved the dealership from 
its downtown location to New Centre 
Drive at the height of the energy crisis, 
before "fuel economy" became a con- 
cern and General Motors was still 
building big gas guzzlers. 

Those were hard times, King ad- 
mits, but said his continuing philosophy 
of "honesty and integrity" has paid off. 

"I've never changed it, and it's 
worked. The overall intent of the com- 
pany is 'We care' and we strive to do it 
right. Everybody knows that. 

"In general most people will say 
it's a good place. We may not always 
do it right, but the employees know 
the philosophy of the company is to do 
it right, and we strive for 100 percent 
customer satisfaction," he said. 

As Wilmington has grown in the 
past 10 years, so has King's business. 
He employs 130 people and has a pay- 
roll of $5 million. The company sells 
about 275-280 cars a month and had 
$73 million in sales in 1996. 

"It's gotten big," he said. And now 
Bob King Automall is at a crossroads. 

Over the next year, the cinema 



across the street will be transfonned 
into a truck center. Recently purchased 
land behind the dealership will be used 
for storage, and next door, a Mercedes 
showroom will be constmcted. 

As he enjoys his success, King re- 
mains an active supporter of his alma 
mater, contributing thousands of dol- 
lars each year to the university which 
he believes has a major impact on the 
community. In 1969, he was among 
two dozen "alumni pioneers" who do- 
nated the first gifts to the alumni asso- 
ciation. This year he is donating a 
1996 Seahawk green GMC Jimmy to

Alumni Association to benefit Wise 
Alumni House. 

"There are many people who wait 
tor it to happen before getting on 
board. I was one to help make it hap- 
pen," King said, quickly adding, "But 
we'll take those who have waited for 
it to happen. It's exciting stuff for an 
infant university to get the status and 
recognition UNCW is getting. 

"It's got a fantastic reputation 
and it started back in the '60s. I 
think everybody's proud of it," King 
said. "You don't have to apologize 
that you graduated from UNCW. 
That alone is enough." W 



FALL 96 



First semester of creative writing 
MFA underway ^j 







Br Melissa Shaw 

As a result of student inter- 
est, the UNCW English 
Department is offering a 
unique degree which will bring at- 
tention to the university. 

This fall is the first semester 
that classes in the Master of Fine 
Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing 
have been offered. 

The MFA is a graduate degree 
which is described as being suitable 
for writers who want to teach in a 
university setting or go onto other 
careers within writing and editing. 

"We think at the MFA as more 
of an experience than a creden- 
tial," said Philip Gerard, director of 
creative and professional writing at 
UNCW. 

The MFA provides an appren- 
ticeship in writing. "It legitimizes 
trying to write novels, short stories 
and poetry in class," he said. 

The degree, which requires 48 
course hours and a book-length 
thesis, will take about three to tour 
years for a person to complete. 

UNCW is unique in its offer- 
ing of the course. The only other 
UNC-system school to offer the 
MFA in creative writing, is UNC- 
Greensboro. 

"There isn't an MFA program 
north of Georgia or south of Vir- 
ginia," Gerard said. "We felt this 
region didn't have a headquarters 
for serious writers." Now, with the 
MFA program at UNCW, it does. 

Gerard said UNCW and the 
MFA are a "natural fit" because the 
university is situated in an area 
which already attracts writers. 



"People choose to come here as 
much tor the environment as for 
the program." 

Currently there are 2 3 students 
enrolled in the program, including 
eight students who transferred from 
the MA program. 

"In the beginning we are serv- 
ing students who know us already," 
Gerard said. But undoubtedly, he 
says the program will start attract- 
ing writers from all over. 

One way of reaching people 
from all over the country is 
through the Internet. The English 
Department has created a Web 
page devoted to the MFA program. 
Gerard said about halt of the appli- 
cations they receive for the pro- 
gram came from the Web page. "I 
get two or three messages (e-mail) 
a day from people who have ques- 
tions about the MFA." 

The road to offering the MFA 
degree at UNCW was a long one. It 
began nearly six years ago when an 
evaluation of the creative and pro- 
fessional writing program was done. 
The evaluation revealed that MFA 
was the next logical step in the 
evolution of the program. 

At the time, Gerard was the 
only professional writer in the En- 
glish faculty. In order to otter the 
MFA, and because of the interest 
in creative writing at the university 
was growing, the school began 
building the writing faculty. 

Today, the?e are seven faculty 
members who are professional writer: 
Stanley Colbert, John Fleming, 
Kathleen Halme, Rebecca Lee, 



Michael White and Paul Wilkes. 

In addition to building the fac- 
ulty, a lot 
of adminis- 
trative 
work had 




timates 
thai since 
1991, halt 
ot his time 
has been Gerord 
spent orga- 
nizing the program and answering 
questions about it. 

There were 30 steps to go 
through to get the program, and 
Gerard said new questions were 
raised at each. 

"Students understand this was 
a long time coming," he said. 
"They really appreciate the oppor- 
tunity. It's a sign they are passion- 
ate about their work." 

Gerard said the students are 
the ones who will make or break 
the program. "The students help to 
tell us the shape the program needs 
to take." 

"Our primary goal is to make 
sure they continue writing once 
they leave here," he said.

ALUMNI PROFILE 



Discovery of shells gives Sunderland 
rare opportunity for scientific legacy 



BY Marybeth K. Bianchi 

Scientists often spend a life 
time of research working to- 
ward that one discovery that 
will make their mark. At age 36, 
Linda Taylor Sunderland '82 has 
made more than a dozen. 

Between 1988 and 1993, she 
and her husband, Kevan, discov- 
ered more than 16 new species of 
seashells whose scientific names re- 
flect that fact. Argopecten taylorae 
and Murexiella taylorae are named 
for Linda, and Conus kevani for 
Kevan, and Splendrilla sunderlandi, 
Conus sunderlandi and 
Architechtonica sunderlandi are 
named for the two of them. 

"My family says I was picking 
up shells before I walked," said 
Linda who grew up in Sea Level, 
N.C. Her mother thought she'd 
outgrow the hobby and teased 
Linda that she'd "never find a man 
to put up with this." Neither came 
1. 1 pass. 

During Linda's first job after 
college as a field biologist for the 
National Audubon Society in the 
Florida Keys, a co-worker intro- 
duced her to her brother, also an 
avid shell collector. 

"We hit it off," Linda said. 
Their first date was a rather non- 
traditional night dive. 

Today the two share a shell col- 
lection which numbers more than 
300,000 specimens, including the 
new species they discovered. They 
knocked down a wall between two 
bedrooms of their four-bedroom 
house to make space for their huge 
collection that has been meticu- 
lously stored and cataloged. The 
shells range from a 24-inch horse 
conch to microscopic specimens. 

Getting a shell named for you is 
no simple feat. "After finding the 




Linda Taylor Sunderland '82 and husband, Kevan, have more than 300,000 shells in their 
collection, several of which are named for them. 



shell," Linda explained, "you must 
do an extensive literature search 
and then justify why you think that 
particular shell is unique. It takes a 
lot ot time to really do it right." 

And, it helps to have a friend 
like Dr. Ed Petruch, a professor at 
Florida Atlantic University, who 
helps amateur collectors like the 
Sunderlands go through the official 
channels of having a species named. 

"Discovering 27 live specimens 
of Cerithioclava garciai off the coast 
of Honduras, when only fossils had 
been located in the Caribbean, was 
probably the neatest thing we 
found," Linda said. On that same 
trip to Honduras 12 new shell spe- 
cies were discovered. 

"There are a lot of things out 
there we don't know about," 
Linda said. 

The Sunderlands are frequently 
called upon by museums and other 



collectors to identity shell species. 
They travel around the country 
judging prominent shell shows and 
giving lectures, from Boston to 
Chicago to New Orleans. They are 
also on the editorial staff of Ameri- 
can Conchologist. 

All this, and they hold full- 
time jobs, too. 

Linda said she is one of the 
"very fortunate" marine biology 
graduates from UNCW to have 
used her degree in every job she's 
held. Her college career was aided 
by who she feels were some very 
special educators. 

Dr. Anne McCrary "helped me 
with classes she was not even 
teaching. I have never seen her not 
have time for a student. She was 
always there and willing to help. 
We still keep in touch. She's a very

ALUMNI PROFILE 



Pair capitalizes on coffee boom with 'Seahawk' blend 



By Phillip Brown 



Something's new in the air 
this year. And it's heing 
brewed at the Hawk's Nest. 
It you're one of those people 
who don't get going until their first 
cup ot coffee, then you need to try 
the "Seahawk." It's a custom- 
brewed gourmet coffee created by 
UNCW alumni Walter Bateman 
'94 and Robbie Robinson '89. 

Gourmet coffee is a booming 
business. Bateman compared the 
increased popularity of coffee shops 
to the boom of yogurt shops in the 
1980's. Bateman said 
UNCW is attracting stu- 
dents from all over the 
country, and some are 
probably already familiar 
with good coffee. He 
thinks that is one reason 
why he and his partner 
were approached about 
bringing gourmet coffee 
to the Hawk's Nest. An- 
other reason, Robinson 
added, could be the trend 
toward offering a social 
atmosphere that doesn't 
involve alcohol. 

While the Hawk's 
Nest offers a commercial 
coffee service, Tom 
Williamson, food service 
director for ARAMARK 
at UNCW, said surveys 
at UNCW and other 
universities showed the 
need to offer another op- 
tion. Williamson said 
Java Estate Roastery sold 
the equipment that has 
enabled the Hawk's Nest 
to set up a small coffee 
house. "We supply them 
with espresso machines, 
coffee and syrups," 
Bateman said. And, of 



course, one ot the coffees supplied 
is the Seahawk blend. 

The coffees used to give the 
Seahawk its body, aroma and taste 
are not part of a secret recipe, 
Bateman said. However, the secret 
is in tile percentages ot the three 
coffees used in the blend. Drawing 
upon a combined eight years of ex- 
perience, Bateman and Robinson 
take their finest Central American 
coffee, a medium roast Guatemalan 
and blend it with an Indonesian 
coffee, Sumatra Mandheling and a

and Waller Bateman '94 create and roast custom blends of gourmet 
coffees and ship them to businesses in North and South Carolina 



dark French roast to produce the 
Seahawk. Their goal was to "dense 
a coffee that everyone would like. 
It's a mild, aromatic coffee that ap- 
peals to everyone," said Bateman. 

The blend has only been on 
the market since August, but so far 
it looks like the appeal is there, he 
said. Williamson agreed, "In m\ 
opinion it's a very good blend." He 
added that everyone he has heard 
ot who tried it has had a favorable 
response. He hopes for an even big- 
ger response as the weather gets 
colder. Bateman said that 
right now the Hawk's Nest 
has been ordering an aver- 
age of 10 pounds a week. 

He said he's glad 
Williamson approached Java 
Estate Roastery about equip- 
ping the university eatery 
and creating the Seahawk. 
"I think he (Williamson) 
wanted to find a way tor 
alumni to put something 
back into UNCW," said 
Bateman. "With us, he 
found just that, a couple of 
alumni who worked in the 
coffee business and were lo- 
cal roasters." 

"I feel really good about 
being able to give something 
back and help contribute to 
UNCW," said Robinson. 

The partners divide up 
the work fairly evenly. 
Robinson, a recreation ma- 
jor, said that Bateman is the 
master roaster, while he 
handles most ot the business 
side. Robinson said the busi- 
ness classes he took at 
UNCW helped with learn- 
ing business basics, espe-

cially the accounting and marketing classes. 

Robinson, who is a surfing enthusiast, left North 
Carolina for California following graduation from 
UNCW. There, he worked for Board and Brew, a San 
Diego coffee shop. He said that while he was there he 
saw the rising popularity of coffee shops. So, he decided 
to come hack to Wilmington and opened Kona's Cafe 
in Wrightsville Beach. He owned the shop for about 
four years before selling it. While it had been voted best 
coffee house three straight years, Robinson said he saw 
the competition increasing. He said he and Bateman 
decided to take their retail experience into the whole- 
sale side and in May 1995 started Java Estate Roastery. 

Bateman, a psychology major, graduated from the 
university in 1994- Also an avid surfer, after graduation 
he left Wilmington for Hawaii, where he said he gained 
his experience in coffee roasting. Already having expe- 
rience in the coffee business helped, said Bateman. He 



had worked his way through college at Kona's Cafe. He 
managed the coffee shop for Robinson for two years. In 
Hawaii, Bateman apprenticed for the owners of Kona 
Kai Farms, one of the largest coffee farms on the is- 
lands. He also managed a coffee shop, The Coffee Gal- 
lery. Hawaii is the only place in the United States that 
gtows coffee. 

Surfing is a hobby for both businessmen. And a 
hobby that they have been able to indulge in while 
combining their pleasure with business. Coffee is grown 
only between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, 
they said, and it may be a coincidence, but it's also 
home to the world's best surf breaks. 

"What better reason to go surfing than to buy cof- 
fee," says Bateman.

wonderful mentor and role model," 
Linda said. 

But the person Linda puts at 
the "top of the list" is Frank 
Chapman. 

"I won't say he knows what's 
best for me, but he's always getting 
me to take that step," she said, with 
evident admiration. He helped her 
overcome a bad deep water experi- 
ence she had as a child to become a 
certified scuba diver. He also helped 
her land her first job. 

"He calls just to see how you're 
doing - a real special friend," she 
said. Even now, when she leaves 
Florida for her home state, she 
makes sure she visits the Chapmans 
and other university friends. 

Linda, who paid for her college 
education by working as a commer- 
cial shrimper on the family-owned 
42-foot ttawler, has held jobs with 
ordinary sounding titles, but ex- 
traordinary responsibilities. For ex- 
ample, as an administrative assistant 
for Tracor Marine, Inc., in Fort Lau- 
derdale, she spent four weeks off- 
shore Sasebo, Japan, assisting with a 
cable survey between Japan and 
South Korea. 




Measuring just one-half inch, Murexiella 
laylorae is a shell named for UNCW 
alumna Linda Taylor Sunderland. 



The time she spent aboard the 
180-foot vessel in 15-20-foot seas in 
the frigid January climate "was not a 
Carnival Cruise but it was a good 
experience," Linda said. 

"Everything was fine until we 
went five miles off Pusan Harbor 



and were surrounded by gun boats," 
Linda said, explaining that was the 
Koreans' response to an unan- 
nounced Japanese boat. "No one 
told the base commander we were 
coming." 

When she returned to Florida, 
expecting a promotion, Linda was 
laid off instead. 

"I think in the long run it 
probably was a good thing," she 
now says. 

Since that time she's worked as 
a lab technician for the City of Sun- 
rise, Fla., as project coordinator and 
biologist for Oceaneering Interna- 
tional and finally, natural resource 
specialist for Broward County, Fla. 

With her shell collecting expe- 
riences, Linda is developing a con- 
sulting business to assist marine 
surveyors in identifying the numer- 
ous shell species they encounter. 

Oh, and as if shell collecting 
wasn't enough to keep Linda 
Sunderland busy after working 40 
hours a week, she also spends many 
hours outdoors photographing na- 
ture and is building a collection of 
antique oil lamps from the early to 

late 1880's. ...

Support for Loyalty Fund is growing 



By Jennifer El am 



The Loyalty Fund is UNCW's 
annual giving program 
which began in 1902. Over 
the past tour years, we've contin- 
ued to enlarge our Jonor base and 
are committed to investing in the 
search for new donors. Gifts to the 
Loyalty Fund enhance scholarships, 
student leadership programs, fac- 
ulty and staff development and the 
alumni association. 

This past year was an exciting 
one as we attempted to call every- 
one in our database - donors and 
non-donors. Approximately 14,600 
people were reached. Out of those 
contacts, there were 2,889 pledges 
totalling $133,295. From the previ- 
ous donor group, 1,629 pledges of 
$81,219 were made. Ot those who 
had never given before, 1,260 
pledged $52,076. While this was a 
great accomplishment in obtaining 
so many new pledges, the Loyalty 
Fund needs to continue this mo- 
mentum again this year. 

In our final evaluation, we dis- 



covered some interesting facts. 
Thev are as follows: 



Gift giving compared 



ALUMNI OTHERS 
Average pledge $43 $54 

Phone contact 48% 73% 

Incorrect address 48% 1 6% 

Pledge rate 39% 31% 

• Nearly 50 percent ot the entire 
database which was attempted 
are non-donors. 

• An average pledge in the $50 
range is considered strong tor a 
young annual fund program. 

■ 35 percent ot all pledges were 
from the graduating classes ot 
1990-94/ 
So what does all this mean? 
The biggest hurdle is obtaining 
good addresses and phone numbers 
tor more ot our alumni. We are ea- 
ger to hear from you and want to 
stay in contact with you, not just 
for solicitation purposes, but also 
tor alumni association activities. 



SURGING TOWARD 2000! By contributing $25 or more annually to the 
UNCW Loyalty Fund you will help us provide programs for alumni and students. Your 
tax-deductible donation will be used to keep you informed about people and events on 
campus and assist in the resroration of Wise Alumni House. Please send the completed 
form with your check to University Advancement (address below).

Now you can update your records at UNCW and pass along Alumnotes information via e-mail at the 
following address: Alumnew-s@uncwil.edu. Or, you can mail the information along with your Loyalty 
Fund donation to: University Advancement, UNCW, 601 South College Road, Wilmington, N.C. 
28403-3297- Be sure to visit the UNCW Alumni Association website at http://www.uncwil.edu/ 



Especially with our 50th anniver- 
sary approaching, there will he 
some exciting events and informa- 
tion in which all alumni will be in- 
terested. 

If you have not been receiving 
information or know ot a friend 
who is not, please till oul the form 
below and send it to us or call the 
alumni association at 1-800-596- 
2880 with your update. 

The second challenge is to 
convince more alumni to suppott 
the university which we will con- 
tinue to try to do each year with 
help from the alumni association 
and various other strategies. 

Please remember that because 
UNCW has such a young annual 
giving program, it is most important 
to increase the number of donors re- 
gardless ot how much the gift is. 
This is crucial because foundations 
which provide grant money require 
a certain level ot alumni participa- 
tion; therefore, our goal is to have a 
larger percentage of donors. 

UNCW's Loyalty Fund, while 
relatively new, has an excellent start. 
There is an especially strong enthusi- 
asm with the youngest alumni as in- 
dicated. We are committed to 
growing the Loyalty Fund to main- 
tain the standards of excellence and 
to enhance the lives ot those at 
UNCW. It is an exciting time to be 
involved with the university. 

You have received the bro- 
chure "Surging Toward 2000" 
with a pledge card. It you have 
not already done so, please com- 
plete the pledge card and include 
your contribution. 

Let's continue to show growth 
again this year as we surge toward 
the 21st century and UNCW's 50th 
anniversary!

tor oj development in the Division for 
University Advancement.

Association growth tied to new chapters 



By Kenitra Mumford 

Over the past year the UNCW 
Alumni Association has ex- 
perienced a jump in member- 
ship as more and more graduates realize 
the benefits of joining. In addition to 
the increase in general membership, 
the alumni association established 
three new chapters, a fourth is being 
formed and an existing chapter is being 
expanded. 

"Until recently, the alumni asso- 
cial ion consisted of five chapters," said 
Mike Arnold, alumni relations assistant. 
The newest additions are the Afri- 
can-American Graduates Association 
(AAGA) with Ron Hamm '90 as presi- 
dent, the School of Nursing Chapter 
with Beth Hodshon '94 as president, 
and the Watson School of Education 
Chapter led by Sherry Broome '91. 

These new chapters provide in- 
creased benefits to both alumni and 
non-alumni by offering increased sup- 
port to the university, more programs 
and services for alumni and students 
and more direct appeal to local alumni, 
Arnold explained. 

"All of the new chapters are doing 
extremely well, especially with the lo- 
cal alumni," he added. Through the 
combined effort of the new chapters 



alone, there are now hundreds of new 
members in the association. This 
means that not only is the association 
growing, but its newest members are 
"fresh out of college," Arnold said. 
This is important because younger 
members are more likely to have a 
greater influence in recruiting the next 
generation of undergraduates by offer- 
ing the most recent perspective on the 
responsibilities of being an alumnus. 

Collectively, the chapters offer sup- 
port and foster goodwill tor the univer- 
sity. Individually, the geographical 
chapters provide mentor assistance and 
hold social functions. Chapters that are 
formed directly from the UNCW schools 
also assist in continuing education. 

The School of Nursing Chapter, 
established in May 1996, is led by 
Hodshon with Adrian Jackson as liai- 
son. Its goals are to establish scholar- 
ships, form a crisis fund for students 
who need financial aid to complete 
their studies, provide mentors for stu- 
dents and the community and promote 
interaction with other alums. 

AAGA was founded in November 
1989 by a nine-member committee to 
promote unity among African Ameri- 
can graduates and to increase under-

can students at UNCW. Members feel 
it is important to join the UNCW 
Alumni Association because it will in- 
crease their efforts to reach more stu- 
dents and provide mutual benefits to 
alumni and minority students. 

The third chapter - the Watson 
School of Education Chapter -was 
formed in the spring of 1996 to bring 
alumni back to the university and 
support both the Watson School of 
Education and the alumni associa- 
tion. Goals for this year include cre- 
ating a first-year teacher mentoring 
program, establishing a scholarship 
and assisting in the renovation of 
Wise Alumni House. 

This fall the MBA Chapter is ex- 
panding to include the Cameron School 
of Business to open doors for participa- 
tion by more business graduates. Plans 
are also in the works for the first Com- 
munication Studies Alumni Chapter. 
Kim Kopka '89 and Mary Barnwell '95 
are co-chairs of the new group which is 
expected to bring more than a hundred 
new members into the association.

sity Relations intern.

Counting down the days to 
graduation, Rachele Thompson 
is learning what it means to be 
a UNCW alumnus. 

Rachele is the alumni association's 
first student intern, and as a communi- 
cation studies major, she's spending her 
time organizing the chapter she hopes to 
soon join as a charter member. 

"I've had so much fun here. I'm 
learning what an alumni association is 
all about," she said. 

Her task during the 126 hours she 
will be working at Wise Alumni House is 
to track down the hundreds of people 
who through the years have earned 
bachelor's degrees in communication 
studies at UNCW. 

"It's been tun, but it's been a huge 
job," she said. Her calls are frequently 
picked up by answering machines, and on 
those rare occasions she does get a real 
person, more often than not, it's one of 
the graduate's parents who answers. 

Despite these obstacles, Rachele 
happily reports, "The response has been 
huge." 

People have returned her calls, and 
parents pass on their children's current 



phone num- 
bers and ad- 
dresses. All 
the informa- 
t i o n 
Rachele 
compiles 
will be put in 
a data base 
and used for 
future mail- 
ings to en- 
courage 
graduates to 
join the new- 
chapter. 

Rachele 

feels this is a great opportunity for UNCW 
alumni, a chance to be "a part of history." 
"The fee is nothing, just the cost of 
a dinner. I see what they do for the uni- 
versity and look at what they've done 
with the Wise House," Rachele said. 

"I have a very, very strong feeling 
this chapter will expand quickly," she 
said. "I'm going to encourage a lot of my 
classmates to join."

Coaches receive top honors in CAA 



Wain 



The success of UNCW's men's 
basketball and women's swim- 
ming teams this year has earned 
their respective coaches, Jerry Wainwright 
and Dave Allen, Coach of the Year hon- 
ors in the Colonial Athletic Association. 

The men's basketball team concluded 
the season with an overall record of 16-14 
and 1 1-7 in the CAA. They finished in a 
tirst-place tie with Old Dominion to share 
their first-ever regular season championship. The team also 
received a school-record seven awards at the annual post- 
season banquet during the CAA tournament. 

Wainwright is the first UNCW basketball coach to 
be named Coach of the Year. Senior Billy Mayew col- 
lected a CAA-record four awards as he was named first- 
team All-CAA, All-Defense and All-Academic and 
received the prestigious Dean Ehlers Leadership Award. 
Other players receiving awards were Lamont Franklin, 
All-Defensive; Mark Byington, All-Academic; and Oleg 
Kojenets, All-Rookie. 

UNCW's success continued from the court into the 




pool with the women's swimming team 
which went undefeated for the first 
time in the program's history during 
the dual meet season, registering a 9-0 
record. They also broke nine school 
records during the season. 

The women finished second at the 
CAA championships and had five con- 
ference champions. Freshman phenom 
Adrienne Sutton captured the 100- 
and 200-breaststroke and the 400-individual medley, while 
Jessica Bader won the one- and three-meter diving events. 
For the first time ever, the women captured a post- 
season title when they took first place at the Eastern 
College Athletics Conference Championships. Sutton 
won the 200-breaststroke, Beth Papineau captured the 
100-backstroke and Bader earned the title on the three- 
meter board. 

The outstanding seasons turned in by both the men's 
basketball and women's swimming teams underscores why 
their respective coaches received honors by the league as 
the season's top coaches. - Elizabeth Lee 



Plans revealed for student recreation center 



The lawn, parking lot and sec- 
tions of the Chancellor's 
Walk between Morton Hall, 
Randall Library and the University 
Union are being transformed into a 
landscaped commons with a three- 
armed lake, lighted fountains, a net- 
work of sidewalks, benches and a 
sculpted hill leading to a stage. 

The idea of a campus commons 
was conceived by Chancellor James 




R. Leut:e to be a visually attractive 
meeting place for students, faculty 
and staff. This $600,000 project was 
funded through donations and non- 
appropriated university funds. 

Several other projects are in the 
works around the UNCW campus. 

Two 100-student residence halls 
will be built within the next year. 
These halls, located across from 
Madeline Suite in Wagoner Hall, will 
have social lounges, 
formal lobbies, kitch- 
ens, reading and con- 
ference rooms. One will 
be an honors hall, and 
the other will house in- 
ternational students. 

Plans for the 
63,3 50-square-foot stu- 
dent recreation center 
were unveiled January 
8. "The hottest item 



that is being built as part of the recre- 
ation center is the indoor climbing 
wall," said Rex Pringle, director of 
campus recreation. It will also have 
multi-purpose courts for basketball, 
volleyball, soccer and other activi- 
ties. The area can also be turned 
into a spacious aerobics room by 
uncovering the mirrors placed on 
one wall. It will feature a high tech 
stereo system. 

The new fitness center will be 
two-and-a-half times larger than the 
present one and will be equipped 
with state-of-the-art selectorized 
equipment, free weights and cardio- 
vascular equipment. The entire work- 
out area can be viewed from above 
along the three-lane, raised track. 
The Discover Outdoor Center, 
Hundley Wellness Promotions Cen- 
ter and the recreation center will be 
relocated to this facility.

Hurricanes delay documentary air date 



Airing of UNCW's newest 
documentary, Treasure 
Coast: The Natural Heritage 
of the North Carolina Shore, on UNC 
public television has been delayed 
due to the need to shoot new footage. 
However, the documentary is 
nearing completion and is expected 
to air this fall. It still highlights the 
people, places and events that shaped 
the coast's past and present and will 
affect its future. Because original film- 
ing was completed before last year's 
hurricanes, the new footage captures 
the devastation that continues to af- 




fect the coast. 

The documentary, narrated by 
Chancellor James R. Leutze and 
scripted by Philip Gerard, director of 
UNCW's creative writing program, 
also focuses on important issues af- 
fecting economic and recreational uses 



oi the coast including erosion, devel- 
opment, pollution and overfishing. 

Plan to watch Treasure Coast this 
fall and meet individuals who are 
part of the coastal landscape. Experi- 
ence a view of the coast that is more 
than wide, sandy beaches. See the 
intricate system of barrier islands, 
tidal creeks, sounds, estuaries, 
deepwater channels, fishing grounds, 
salt marshes and beaches and learn 
how a balance can be achieved be- 
tween man's use of the coast and the 
needs of nature. 

- Phillip Brown 



Students get degrees in three years 
when they enroll in the 'Fast Track' 



F 



or the student who doesn't 
want to wait four years to ob- 
tain a bachelor's degree or who 
wants something special in his resume, 
UNCW offers "Fast Track." 

"We are the first university ( in the 
UNC system ) to offer a formal program 
which allows students to graduate in 
three years," said Denis Carter, associ- 
ate provost for Enrollment Affairs. 

The response to the program has 
been amazing, Carter said. His office 
has received more inquiries than ex- 
pected. He expects about 30 students 
to participate in the program initially. 

The "Fast Track" program will 
be available in nine different majors: 
accountancy, biology, business man- 
agement, chemistry, elementary edu- 
cation, foreign languages, history, 
nursing and sociology. Requirements 
are no different than the four-year 
plan: 124 credit hours are needed for 
graduation. 

With "Fast Track" students will 
stick to a course plan which allows 
them to get all the classes they need 



in a shorter period of time. This 
means the university will commit to 
scheduling, by making sure that nec- 
essary courses are offered during cer- 
tain semesters and summer sessions, 
Carter said. 

Students enrolled in the "Fast 
Track" will not save any money; their 
educational costs will be the same as 
those for a student who stays in school 
for four years. However, they will be 
out in the work force sooner, thus 
able to pay back student loans 
quicker. 

"Fast Track" goes hand-in-hand 
with a $1 10,735, three-year grant the 
university received late last year. The 
grant is for promotion of summer 
school and expansion of summer 
school classes. 

Carter expects UNCW's "Fast 
Track" to be a model program as 
other universities in the system be- 
gin looking for ways to get students 
through college faster.

June is the time for alumni and friends to celebrate 

$ 400,000 renovation loan will be paid off 
and Wise Alumni House will be dedicated 



BY marybeth K. Bianchi 

For years the majestic home was empty, 
deteriorating, an eyesore in a neigh- 
borhood that once boasted ot some of 
Wilmington's finest houses. 

Hardwood floors with delicate inlays 
were buckled, dingy paint flaked from dam- 
aged plaster walls and ceilings. Graffiti de- 
faced rare handpainted wallpaper. 

But now after 28 years, the house that 
had been built for a cotton mill president's 
family and was later home to an heiress is re- 
turning to its former elegance. Thousands of 
state and private dollars and years of effort 
by the University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington and the UNCW Alumni Asso- 
ciation have paid off. 

On June 7, the Holt-Wise House, now 
called UNCW's Wise Alumni House, will be 
formally dedicated just five days after the fi- 
nal payment is made on the alumni 
association's four-year $400,000 renovation 
loan. All who have contributed to the reno- 
vation of the historic structure are invited to 
celebrate this monumental achievement. 

The house was designed by B. H. 
Stephens and built in 1908-09 at a cost of $1 1,000 for 
E. C. Holt in the then-fashionable suburb of Carolina 
Heights. Jessie Hargrave Kenan Wise purchased the 
house in 1916 and lived there until she died in 1968 at 
age 98. Her grandchildren, Lawrence Lewis, Jr. and 
Mary Lily Flagler Lewis Wiley, deeded the house to 
UNCW in 1969. 

For the next two dozen years, the house was vacant 
and generally neglected because the young university 
was focusing on its growth and development at its Col- 
lege Road campus. When attempts were made by uni- 
versity officials to use the structure in the mid-1980s, 
there was opposition from Carolina Heights residents 
and the Wilmington City Council, which repeatedly re- 
fused to change zoning rules to allow for business usage 
of the property. 

UNCW Chancellor James R. Leutze was sympa- 
thetic. Living next door to the deteriorating house, he, 
too, wanted the neighborhood to retain its residential 
character. 




Sitting vacant for two decades, Wise House deteriorated. Inlaid 
hardwood floors were worn, and plaster on the walls and ceilings 
was damaged as were the glassed-doored wall cases in the 
grand room and fireplaces throughout the house. 



"I live there. I don't want to live in an office park," 
he was quoted in the local newspaper. 

A compromise was finally reached in December 
1991 when the council issued a special use permit al- 
lowing for university-related uses of the house in the 
History District Overlay which was zoned residential. 
The six-month permit was extended another six months 
as university officials struggled to find the funds neces- 
sary for repairs to make the building usable. 

As the clock ticked toward the deadline, William 
G. Anlyan, Jr., who was the new vice chancellor for 
UNCW's Division for University Advancement, ap- 
proached the UNCW Alumni Association Board of 
Directors. They had talked about using the house as its 
headquarters, said John Baldwin '72, who was chair- 
man at that time. Anlyan persuaded the group to take 
on the challenge. 

"The board felt it had an opportunity to preserve its 
history," said Baldwin whose own love for the house is

evident by his continuing volunteet efforts to raise 
money for its upkeep. 

Working with United Carolina Bank, the alumni 
association was able to secure a four-year $400,000 loan 
in March 1993, quite an undertaking for the young or- 
ganization. 

"It was through Bill's (Anlyan) charm and persever- 
ance we got the loan," Baldwin said. "We had three 




In addition to raising tens of thousands of dollars, the Designers 
Showcase also transformed the Wise House and provided many 
cosmetic improvements, above and beyond what was paid for by the 
alumni association's renovation loan. 



friends who got this project rolling, the chancellor, Bill 
and Bob Walton (vice chancellor for Business Affairs). 
Without those three we wouldn't be here today. The 
place would have been torn down in a few years. It was 
that big a disaster." 

The money was used for the removal of asbestos, 
basic repairs to the electrical, plumbing and heating 
and air conditioning systems which would bring the 
aging structure up to current codes and to make it a 
usable facility. 

"It was quite a bit," Baldwin said. "I'm really sur- 
prised we did it with $400,000." 

Paying back that money has been the alumni 
association's driving force for the past four years. "It 
takes a group of people with vision to come up with one 
creative event after another," Baldwin said. 

First there were the "Hard Hat" parties, casual 
events where guests toured the building wearing bright 
yellow plastic hats and were enticed to purchase parts of 
the house: columns, mantels, rooms. Baldwin, who pur- 



chased the second-floor balcony and workroom for 
$10,000, was instrumental in rallying his fellow Pi 
Kappa Phi brothers to donate more than $27,000 to 
purchase the grand room at Wise Alumni House. 

The biggest project was the Designers Showcase in 
1995, a three-week event that brought new life to the 
house, opened it up to thousands oi visitors and gener- 
ated much-needed revenue for loan repayment. The 

Fantasy Auction in 1996, the raffle of 
a CMC Jimmy donated by former 
alumni board chairman Robert S. 
King '66 and the $19.47 appeal have 
also been major fund-raisers. 

Other events were held jointly 
with community groups: a progressive 
dinner with Bellamy Mansion and 
the wassail bowl with the Lower 
Cape Fear Historical Society. 

"We've had a wonderful overflow 
of help from alumni, the university 
and the community," Baldwin said. 
"It hasn't been hard raising money 
for this house. People really want to 
help." 

In addition, the university has 
spent more than $200,000 for im- 
provements to the property, includ- 
ing the addition of a lighted parking 
lot, reconstruction of the sunken gar- 
den, landscaping of the grounds and 
renovation of the carriage house. 
Now housing the offices of the 
UNCW Alumni Association and the 
site of numerous community and pri- 
vate events as well as movie sets, 
"(Wise House) gives the alumni a 
home. The older alumni get, they'll think more of the 
Wise House. It makes all the alumni proud," Baldwin said.

Places everyone! UNCW 
takes the director's chair and 
is hard at work bringing the 
world of film to campus. 

A faculty committee formed by 
the dean of UNCW's College of 
Arts and Sciences has taken action 
by proposing the establishment of a 
film studies program. Several fac- 
ulty members in the English, Com- 
munication Studies, Theater and 
History Departments specialize in 
film studies, and many others regu- 
larly teach courses in film or use 
film as an integral component of 
their courses. 

Professors including the chair- 
person of the faculty committee, 
Philip Furia; Robert Toplin and 
Terry Rogers, instructors in film 
history and theory; and visiting 
professor Stanley Colbert who 
worked as a screenwriter, director m 
and producer, are just four of the 
film specialists at UNCW who are 
excited about being part of the new 
program. 

The presence of a vital film in- 
dustry in Wilmington, one that in- 
cludes numerous individuals with 
expertise in all areas of filmmaking 
and that regularly brings to this 
area eminent directors, performers 
and other professionals, makes 
UNCW a natural home for a film 
studies program. Past studio offi- 
cials have shown little interest in 
UNCW; Frank Capra, Jr., president 
of Screen Gems Studios Ltd. in 
Wilmington, was disturbed by this. 

"In Los Angeles, it's just a fore- 
gone conclusion that the universi- 
ties and the studios have longtime 
relationships," he said. 

Capra pushed for more inter- 
action between the studios and the 
college. "I asked Chancellor Leutze 
what could we do to institute a pro- 
gram that would bring interns from 
your classes to the studios to spend 
time and get credit for it," he said. 
Leutze supported the idea and took 
steps to establish the minor. Capra 
then met with the faculty commit- 
tee to discuss the structure of the 




internships and their incorporation 
into a film minor program. 

This spring, thanks to Capra's 
interest, UNCW was able to offer 
nine student internships at various 
companies on the Screen Gems lot. 
English major Billy Gamble was an 
intern with Telemedia, an indepen- 
dent company at Screen Gems, and 
had hands-on experience with 24- 
frame playback, video assist (play- 
back on videotape), editing and 
running dailies. 

"It's amazing what I've learned. 
This internship has opened the 
doors to an exciting future for me," 
Billy said. Eddie Blakely, the pro- 
duction manager of Telemedia, was 
impressed with Gamble's growth 
and determined spirit and hopes to 
make him a permanent employee 
with the company. 

Communication studies major, 
Marc Levy, shares Gamble's excite- 
ment. Levy is working in Capra's 
office concentrating on advertising 



and promotion for Screen Gems. 
Levy is creating a home page tor 
the studio's Website. When asked 
if the job was ever intimidating, 
Levy said, "A little at first, but ev- 
eryone here is attentive and eager 
to answer any questions." 

The faculty committee is 
pleased with the internship pro- 
gram and is pushing forward to 
continue the progress. "We have all 
the right people to make this hap- 
pen: eager students, a dedicated 
staff and cooperation with the stu- 
dios. Consequently, the faculty film 
committee plans to do just that," 
Furia said. 

He anticipates an intensive 
summer program in 1998 that will 
extend the invitation beyond tradi- 
tional arts and science majors. 
Sharing American Cinema profes- 
sor Todd Berliner's dilemma for 
space for film courses, Furia is pro- 
posing that one room of Morton 
Hall be remodeled to accommodate

future film classes. 

The internships, which allow 
students to study aspects of film 
within its true environment, will 
he only a portion ot the proposed 
program. The film minor, requiring 
18 hours of study, will feature 
courses on the analysis, history and 
production ot films. They will in- 
clude American Cinema Since 
1961, French Cinema, Performance 
tor the Camera, Scriptwriting for 
Television and Film, and Politics 
and the Entertainment Media. One 
feature class will he the Production 
ot Film taught by Capra at Screen 
Gems. Students will he involved in 
actual filmmaking that teaches 
lighting and cinematography. 

This is what senioi Bryan 
Kupko has desired for two years. 
Kupko is founder and past presi- 
dent of UNCW's film club, the 
Twentieth Century Hawks. A horn 
lover ot the filmmaking art, Kupko 
explained his struggles. "I was dis- 
appointed when I learned that 
UNCW had no outlet into the film 
industry. With the encouragement 
of several professors, I sent out a 
few flyers to start a club. Then I 
purchased my first camera, a Super 
8mm, for $300 so the club 
would have something to 
shoot with." 

Kupko's flyers drew in 
about 40 interested students. 
Current club president, 
Tennille Byrd, commented 
on the club's willingness to 
work. "There are a lot of stu- 
dents on campus who truly 
care about film exploration. 
We started with an idea and 
one camera. Now, the 
Twentieth Century Hawks 
are really beginning to fly." 

Byrd is not exaggerat- 
ing. Since the club's estab- 
lishment a year ago, 
members collected several 
8mm cameras from families 
and flea markets and built 
their own dolly and lighting Frank Copfa Jf fnghtj glves UNCW sluc jents Jennifer Heffinger, Marc Levy, Belhanie 
devices. They used this Monroe and John Roberts a guided lour of Screen Gems back lot 



equipment to make their first fea- 
ture, "The Thickest Mask," a 42- 
minute black-and-white narrative 
on Super 8 film, and several other 
shorter works. The club hosted 
UNCW's first Candela Film Festi- 
val in February to premiere their 
feature and to show several inde- 
pendent films. The event drew in 
an audience of more than 100. 

The Twentieth Century Hawks 
are currently hard at work on three 
16mm shorts, "House of Pancakes," 
"Orpheus" and "The Bakery," for 
future film festivals. They also cre- 
ated a public service announcement 
and documentary tor the dance 
marathon SCA hosted tor the 
Duke's Children Miracle Network 
in April. 

"Interaction with student gov- 
ernment and other school functions 
are a primary focus for the club. We 
want to show everyone the influ- 
ence the medium of film has," said 
Byrd. 

The Hawks have the opportu- 
nity to grow along with the film mi- 
nor. The club is proud of the 
influence it has had on the school's 
boost tor the film studies program. 
Members realize that it could not 



have happened without the hard 
work and collaboration of the (ac- 
uity and the studios, kupko said 
the club owes a debt of gratitude 
to the professors' interest and the 
studio.-,' support. 

"Screen Gems has donated 
over $12,000 worth of lighting 
equipment and has agreed to lei 
us use their backlol for the shoot- 
ing of The Bakery.' Also, joe 
Dunton c* Company, where 1 do 
my internship is always willing to 
help our with equipment and ad- 
vice," he said. 

UNCW has visions of new fa- 
new classes and student 
the future. Thanks to the 
eagerness of the College of Arts & 
Sciences' faculty film committee, 
the Twentieth Century Hawks 
and Frank Capra with Screen 
Gems Studios, the establishment 
ot the new film minor is expected 
tor fall 1998 with the hopes of a 
complete film studies program to 

follow.

Health of Cape Fear River a focus of regional concern 



By Vickie Yearby '95 



With a green slime coating 
and pollution so oxy- 
gen-depleting that the 
river cannot sustain life, North 
Carolina's Neuse River has been a 
priority in the legislature for the 
last two years. But only recently, in 
the wake of two major hurricanes, 
has concern about the health of the 
Cape Fear River become an issue in 
the General Assembly. If this river 
is to recover from devastation 
caused by natural and human im- 
pacts, the Cape Fear River needs 
more than attention; it needs 
money to continue and expand cur- 
rent research efforts. 

For 9,000 square miles and 27 
counties, the Cape Fear River has 
been the focus for economic devel- 
opment since the 17th century. 
Water quality has been and re- 
mains central to commercial fish- 
ing, industry, transportation, 
tourism, recreation, public drinking 



water supplies, real estate develop- 
ment and quality of life. 

"We can't have a healthy 
economy without the river," said 
Camilla Herlevich, director of the 
Cape Fear River Program. 

Legislators from the Cape Fear 
area are seeking $3.8 million to im- 
prove water quality by expanding 
water testing. UNCW scientists be- 
gan regularly testing water in the 
Cape Fear River at 34 spots two 
years ago to gather better data on 
the river's health. This research 
needs to be extended to include 
sediment sampling and studying 
the health of different fish species 
in the river, Herlevich said. One- 
third of the money requested would 
be designated to UNCW's Cape 
Fear River Program for water qual- 
ity testing. 

The Cape Fear River Program, 
initiated by Wilmington Industrial 
Development, Inc., was established 



in April 1994 by UNCW when the 
Environmental Management Com- 
mission designated the Cape Fear 
River as a high quality water area. 
This would have put a stop to new 
discharge permits, which would 
have halted industrial growth for 
the region. Wilmington's Chamber 
of Commerce petitioned the com- 
mission, requesting they first inves- 
tigate the water's quality before 
stopping economic development. 
They agreed. The Cape Fear River 
Program was established to monitor 
the river's water quality which in- 
cludes testing for salinity, light re- 
duction, microscopic plants and 
animals and productivity. 

The goal of the Cape Fear 
River Program is to preserve and 
restore water quality in the river 
while allowing for recreation, com- 
merce and industry in the region. 

Nineteen monitoring stations 
have been established in the river 



SPRING 97 















from the main stem, which is the 
portion of the river originating in 
the Piedmont region, to the North- 
east Cape Fear. The Cape Fear 
River Program tests areas that are 
non-point sources of pollution, 
which do not require monitoring by 
the state. New programs to test 
sedimentation runoff are being 
implemented in the Black and 
Northeast Cape Fear Rivers. 

While the Cape Fear River Pro- 
gram has been monitoring the qual- 
ity of the river's water for 1 8 
months, it has just broken the sur- 
face of investigating sources of the 
river's pollution. Fish samples taken 
at the beginning of this year found 
the fish population in the North- 
east Cape Fear to be much lower 
then normal due to Hurricanes Ber- 
tha and Fran. The fish that are re- 
populating the area are coming 
from estuaries, rather than from 
fresh water. While they are hardier, 
it will still be a while before the 
population is restored, stated Mike 
Mallin, research coordinator for the 
Cape Fear River Program and re- 
search associate for UNCW's Cen- 
ter for Marine Science Research. 

"The main stem of the river is 
recovering normally, but the north- 
east area is still suffering from lin- 
gering pollution effects," Mallin 
said. 

A press conference was held 
last November to reveal the Cape 
Fear River Program's first year's 
findings. The data indicated that 
the river is under severe and in- 
creasing threats. 

"We need additional research 
to probe the underlying reasons for 
the decrease in water quality; in 
particular, the algal blooms, fish 
kills and high turbidity concentra- 
tions that plague our river," stated 
UNCW Chancellor James R. 
Leutze. He also challenged deci- 
sion-makers to make the health of 
the Cape Fear River a priority dur- 
ing the next legislative season. 

With funding from the Water 
Resources Research Institute, scien- 
tists from UNCW are conducting 












The challenge now is to 
make sure water quality 
stays protected and to figure out 
where threats are coming from 
before we allow additional 
pollution on the hanks of the 
Cape Fear River.'

research to investigate the effects 
of additional nutrients from 
swine farms on the river and 
whether or not they stimulate 
the growth of bacteria in the wa- 
ter. UNCW researchers have also 
begun tracing the recovery of 
benthic organisms, which live at 
the bottom of the river. 

While a number of research 
projects have focused on the effects 
of the hurricanes on the river, little 
has been done to determine the ef- 
fects of chemical pollution on the 
Cape Fear. This is the next issue 
the Cape Fear River Program hopes 
to address, Mallin pointed out. 

The Cape Fear River Program 
has ambitious plans to expand its 
water quality testing into the 
middle and upper basins of the 
river. The program will also in- 
crease the number of elements stud- 
ied to include biological indications 
such as fish disease, analysis of sedi- 
ments for heavy metal concentra- 
tion and the effect of dredging. 
Water quality is not the only issue 
for certain areas of the river. While 
the water quality in the upper basin 
is high, its quantity is low. 

Many people are concerned 
that the Cape Fear River could end 
up like its neighbor, the Neuse. 
Mallin said this is not the case. 
"They are physically different. 



The Neuse River is bound by the 
Outer Banks, so the water 
doesn't flush as much. The Cape 
Fear has a different set of prob- 
lems. For example, in the sum- 
mer the river's water has a low 
dissolved oxygen level, which 
makes it more primed for prob- 
lems," he said. 

Concern for the Cape Fear 
River is growing. "Residents are be- 
ginning to understand that both 
natural and man-made activities af- 
fect the quality of the river and that 
this river is the source of their 
drinking water. They are also be- 
ginning to value the work that the 
Cape Fear River Program does," 
Herlevich said. 

Even though the state of the 
Cape Fear River is not as severe as 
that of the Neuse, actions to pre- 
vent further degradation need to be 
taken now. Herlevich said, "The 
challenge now is to make sure water 
quality stays protected and to figure 
out where threats are coming from 
before we allow additional pollu- 
tion on the banks of the Cape Fear 
River. The neat thing about the 
Cape Fear is that we have a chance 
to figure out what is going on before 
we have to repair it."

UNCW celebrates golden anniversary 
at events planned throughout 1997-98 



By Stacy D'Alcamo and Jennifer Heffinger 



What started in 1946 as 
the Wilmington College 
Center of the University 
of North Carolina, with nearly 250 
students taking classes at two high 
schools, has grown in 50 years into 
a full-fledged university with 9,100 
students and a 650-acre campus 
with more than 70 buildings. 

As it celebrates its golden an- 
niversary over the next year and a 
half, the University of North Caro- 
lina at Wilmington continues to 
experience growth with the addi- 
tion of new buildings, increased en- 
rollment and widespread 
recognition on both the academic 
and athletic playing fields. Long- 
range plans call for several new 
classroom buildings and 15,000 stu- 
dents by 2005. 

The 50th anniversary is a mile- 
stone in the life of this institution 
and is an opportunity for alumni, 
the university and Wilmington 
area community to recount the im- 
pact UNCW has had on this re- 
gion, the state and the nation. 
Most influenced by the impact of 
the university are the alumni. As 
memories begin to fade, this cel- 
ebration serves as a means of recap- 
turing those wonderful moments of 
personal growth and the bonds of 
friendship experienced by every 
college class. The university hopes 
that the events held during the 
1997-1998 celebration will re- 
kindle the passion of former stu- 
dents and faculty and heighten the 
community's awareness of the 
university's positive impact on the 
region. 

Chancellor James R. Leutze be- 
lieves the growth and changes ex- 
perienced over the last 50 years at 
UNCW have been for the best. 
"The tremendous progress we have 



made from a small college center to 
a regional university is amazing. 1 
hope that it is gratifying to the 
founders of the university," he said. 

UNCW kicked off its celebra- 
tion homecoming weekend in Janu- 
ary with the hanging of large 
banners displaying the 50th anni- 
versary logo which is a circle en- 
closing a sunrise with a stylized 
Seahawk soaring toward the sun. 
Smaller banners will be hung from 
lampposts on campus for com- 
mencement in May and will remain 
hanging throughout the entire cel- 
ebration. 

The first formal event to cel- 
ebrate the university's golden anni- 
versary will be convocation on 
August 19. Officials hope to bring 
in a prominent figure as the guest 
speaker. The hour-long program 
will be followed by a picnic. 

On October 17 and 18, the 
UNCW Alumni Association will 
host the Wilmington College re- 
union. The Friday night reception 
will be held at Wise Alumni House 
with retired faculty and members of 
the Order of Isaac Bear as featured 
guests. On Saturday, an old-fash- 
ioned sock hop will be held in the 
University Center and will include 
a barbecue dinner, a short program 
in the Center Stage Cafe and en- 
tertainment by a DJ. 

The 50th anniversary will also 
be the focus of homecoming week- 
end, February 7-8, 1998. At the 
awards dinner, former alumni board 
members and chairs will be hon- 
ored along with golden alumni vol- 
unteers and others who have played 
a vital role in the university's 
growth. The Saturday night dance 
will be moved to Wagoner Hall be- 
cause a large turnout is expected. 

Other special 50th anniversary 



events are in the planning stages, 
and most events hosted by the uni- 
versity will be tied into the year- 
long observance. Specially designed 
memorabilia commemorating the 
anniversary will be available 
throughout the year. These include 
a circular cloisonne pin along with 
luggage tags, leather book marks, 
decals and other items. 

The 50th anniversary celebra- 
tion is a time to remember those 
community leaders who helped 
forge quality higher education in 
southeastern North Carolina and 
the dedicated individuals who 
through the years have carried out 
their dreams to make UNCW a 
driving force behind the growth 
and development of the region and 
its people. 

A 1948 Wilmington Star-Neivs 
editorial, published the day 
Wilmington College received its 
accreditation and became a mem- 
ber of the American Association of 
Junior Colleges, seems prophetic 
almost 50 years later: 

"The spirit which brought the 
college into being continues as de- 
termined and strong as the day it 
burst forth with such strength that 
the demands for the institution 
could not be refused. Support of 
the college, now that its practical 
benefits have been demonstrated, is 
greater than ever. May the college's 
outstanding accomplishments in its 
short past encourage its friends not 
only to dream and plan but to build 
a greater institution and widen its 
range of service in the future."

Countdown on 
to meet goals 
of annual fund 

By Jennifer el am 

The countdown is on to June 
30, 1997. This day marks 
the end of our fiscal year 
and is the last day to meet the an- 
nual fund goal. 

We have had a great momen- 
tum this year and are excited about 
the support that alumni, parents 
and friends have given to UNCW. 
These contributions are vital to 
meeting the greater needs of the 
university for which the state of 
North Carolina does not provide. 
UNCW is assisted by the state, but 
it does not receive its total operat- 
ing budget from this source. 

Because of this, I hope you will 
contribute to the Loyalty Fund be- 
fore June 30 if you have not yet 
given. Even if you have donated this 
year, an extta $5 to $10 from all 
those who are already donors would 
make a significant diffetence. 

Every donation, regardless of 
size, is valuable to UNCW. It posi- 
tively impacts the lives of students, 
faculty and staff. Please help 
UNCW reach its year-end goal by 
sending your check made payable 
to the Loyalty Fuud to: University 
Advancement, The University of 
North Carolina at Wilmington, 
601 South College Road, Wilming- 
ton, NC 28403-3297. 

With UNCW celebrating its 
50th anniversary, there is no better 
time to be involved. Thank you for 
your support and consideration.

ALUMNI PROFILE 



Robison s interest in students spurs his volunteer service 



By Lisa Marie Innacelli 

It may have been 14 years since 
he graduated, but Marvin 
Robison's high regard for the 
University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington has not diminished. 

Before an interviewer could 
pose the first question, Robison '83 
was making his own inquiries. 
When are you going to graduate? 
What kind of job are you looking for? 

Robison's unwavering interest 
in and concern for students and his 
alma mater is evident in his active 
support of university programs. He 
feels that way because of the influ- 
ence UNCW has had on his own 
life. Through his alumni activities, 
Robison is giving back to the uni- 
versity that gave so much to him. 

Robison served on the alumni as- 
sociation board of directors from 1987 
to 1995 and was chairman 1993 to 
1994. 

When he was vice chair, 
Robison became involved in rhe 
Wise Alumni House renovation 
project which was completed during 
his term as chairman. He said he is 
most proud of this effort since uni- 
versity officials were skeptical of the 
board's endeavor. It had just four 
years to pay off the $400,000 reno- 
vation loan. Robison is proud to say 
that in June the debt will be paid. 
Another important fund-raising 
project Robison managed was the 
establishment of an alumni credit 
card through BB&.T in 1994. 

Currently, Robison is a member 
of the Seahawk Club board of direc- 
tors and is on several fund-raising 
committees. He is often seen at 
UNCW basketball games cheering 
and screaming for his beloved 
Seahawks. 

His community service is not 
confined to UNCW. Robison is a 
member of a local Rotary Club. In 
1987 he was named Rotarian of the 
Year, served on the board of direc- 




tors from 1990-1994, was club presi- 
dent from 1992-1993, and became a 
Paul Harris Fellow in 1995. He is 
also active with Family Services of 
the Lower Cape Fear, serving on the 
board of directors from 1992 to 1995 
and as honorary campaign chairman 
for the 1995 membership drive. He 
is a member of the First Presbyterian 
Church where he has been on the 
board of deacons since 1996 and has 
served on several other committees. 

Robison does not stop there in 
his effort to give back to the commu- 
nity. He also has served on fund-rais- 
ing committees for the Boy Scouts of 
America, the Wilmington Economic 
Development Committee of 100, the 
American Heart Association and the 
Franklin Graham Crusade. 

While attending UNCW, 
Robison's experiences were different 
than many in his class and today's 
students. He began college at the 
age of 19, after working for two years 
at Fleishman's Clothing Store in 
Wilmington. He attended UNCW 
part-time and worked full-time for 
six years before graduating in 1983 at 
the age of 25 with a bachelor of arts 
in business administration. 

Robison said UNCW has un- 
dergone many positive changes 



since 1983. He believes the quality 
of professors has increased, and the 
Cameron School of Business is one 
of the best in the state of North 
Carolina. He is proud to have his 
degree from there. 

"As you graduate you may not 
value your degree, you are just glad to 
have it, but as you grow older it be- 
comes more important to you," he said. 

His education did not end at 
UNCW. He attended Aetna Life 
Insurance Company's Estate Plan- 
ning School in 1991 and recently 
received his Chartered Life Under- 
writer Designation through Ameri- 
can College. He holds his insurance 
and brokers licenses. 

Robison is married to former 
Margaret Re id Taylor, who worked 
for UNCW for 13 years in Auxiliary 
Services and as director of develop- 
ment. They have three children: 
Taylor, 7; William, 4; and Ross, 1. 
Robison is self-employed, specializ- 
ing in life insurance and good em- 
ployee benefits, and is an associate 
of George Chadwick Insurance of 
Wilmington. 

A senior communication studies 
major, Lisa Marie Innacelli is an intern

It will he on permanent dis- 
play in the department offices. 

"The chapter gives communi- 
cation studies majors a special bond 
in that they feel like they joined 
something worthwhile," said 
Ratcliff. "If we continue to try to 
reach other graduates, we'll con- 
tinue to increase our membership." 

The chapter, which currently 
has 60 members, is committed to 
supporting the Communication 
Studies Department, the alumni as- 
sociation and current communica- 
tion studies students. One way 
members are doing this is by work- 
ing to endow a scholarship in 
memory of the department's founder 
and former chair, Betty Jo Welch. 

"Without Betty Jo's influence, 
we would probably not have a 
Communication Studies Depart- 
ment at UNCW," said Tom 
Lamont, chairman of the chapter's 
scholarship committee. "I hope all 
UNCW communication alumni 
support this effort and contribute 
to the scholarship fund. In fact, the 
family of the late Dr. Betty Jo 
Welch, has agreed to match the 



chapter's first $5,000." 

The chapter co-hosted a ban- 
quet to honor senior communication 
studies majors on April 21. In May, 
members will participate in the 
department's commencement cer- 
emony to support the graduates and 
encourage them to get involved. 

The chapter welcomes new 
members. Meetings are at 6:30 p.m. 
the first Wednesday of each month 
at Wise Alumni House. The chap- 
ter is actively raising funds to en- 
dow the Welch scholarship. 
Anyone who would like to contrib- 
ute or become an active member 
can contact the alumni association 
office at Wise House.

tern with Alumni Relations.

CHAIRMAN'S REPORT 



It has been an exciting year for 
me as chairman of the UNCW 
Alumni Association. I've 
watched with pride at the growth 
of our chapters and the enthusiastic 
response of alumni to get involved. 

At homecoming we recognized 
outstanding individuals who have 
made a difference, not only to our 
association, but to the university 
and entire community. Our board 
meeting was characterized by an en- 
thusiasm that both board members 
and guests felt and carried on 
throughout the day. We decorated 
the ballroom for that evening's 
dance, attended a reception spon- 
sored by the AAGA Chapter, par- 
ticipated in the pregame social 
where the Communication Studies 
Chapter unveiled its charter, 
cheered our Seahawks on to victory 
over the ECU Pirates, crowned the 
1997 Homecoming queen, Kristin 
Todd, and king, Nate Stansfield, 
and then headed for the dance. It 
was a very busy, but fun-filled week- 
end. If you missed out, be sure to 
mark your calendar for next year's 
homecoming, which will be a special 
event tied in with the university's 
50th anniversary celebration. 

The center of many alumni ac- 
tivities is Wise Alumni House. 
From the dedications of the Pi 
Kappa Phi, BB&T and Constance 
and John F. Phillips' rooms, alumni 
lectures, graduates' receptions, and 
countless chapter and committee 
meetings, the house plays an in- 
creasingly important role for the 
alumni association, the university 
and the community. It has given 
our association an identity to 
which all alumni can relate. 

Our campaign to pay off the 
note on Wise Alumni House is 
nearing its end. The raffle of the 
CMC Jimmy donated by Bob King 
'66 was very successful, and the 
alumni association can take pride 
in the effort to "step up" ticket 




sales to reach 
our goal. The 
1947 appeal is 
still underway. If 
you haven't re- 
turned your con- 
tribution, there 
is still time. We 
do appreciate 
everyone's par- 
ticipation in these and the many 
other fund-raisers the association 
has held during the past four years. 
The success we have achieved up 
to this point could not have been 
possible without your support. 

Plans for the university's 50th 



Melton '74 



anniversary are well underway and 
were kicked off with the hanging of 
the first celebratory banner at Wise 
Alumni House homecoming week- 
end. Your alumni association will 
play an important role in this cel- 
ebration. 

This has been a banner year for 
the UNCW Alumni Association, 
and the efforts of the Alumni Rela- 
tions staff, Pat Corcoran, Mike 
Arnold, Tracie Chadwick and 
Nannette White, make it possible 
tor us to accomplish all that we do 
as a board. 



D i rector' s Message 



After four years and an he- 
roic effort by alumni, uni- 
versity, community and 
friends, we are just about there. 
The UNCW Alumni Association is 
in its final stretch to the finish line 
to pay off our $400,000 
loan with United Carolina 
Bank for extensive renova- 
tions to Wise Alumni 
House. 

Countless new friend- 
ships were made along the 
way and existing ties deep- 
ened by the intensity of this 
special project. The spirit of 
Wise Alumni House has 
captured the hearts of thou- 
sands of individuals who became 
champions for the cause. This same 
spirit has sustained our driving ef- 
fort since 1993. 

Built in 1908, the house is 
much more than the visible 7,484 
square feet. Wise Alumni House is 
a special part of many of our lives. 
As my office is located in the heart 
of the alumni house, I have experi- 
enced many levels of pain and 
progress over the past four years. 
Project managers Pat Hawkins, 




Corcoran 



Cherry Woodbury, Beth Cherry and 
Nannette White and countless vol- 
unteers assisted our board of directors 
in its task of raising the necessary 
funds to retire the debt. We thank all 
of you most sincerely. 

On June 7, we will 
dedicate Wise Alumni 
House, five days after pay- 
ing off the note. We cor- 
dially invite all of you to 
join us in a special cel- 
ebration that evening 
honoring you and all 
those who assisted our as- 
sociation in saving and re- 
storing this special 
residence. 

The next step for Miss Jessie's 
house is exterior repair and beauti- 
fication which UNCW will begin 
soon. These final touches to this 
treasured house, restoring it to its 
original grace and grandeur, will 
compliment the neighborhood, 
university and entire community. 
Again, thank you for caring enough 
to rescue this historic home.

The Wilmington College Cen- 
ter of the University of North 
Carolina opened its doors in 
1946, and on November 1 1, 
Donald Blake was elected presi- 
dent of the student body. 

Of the more than 200 students 
enrolled, 1 1 1 secret ballots were 
cast with a majority naming Blake 
over his two competitors, Selma 
Coble and Dan Vick. 

A native of Wilmington whose 
roots in the area go back to the 
1 700s, Blake was like many other 
students enrolled at the center. He 
was 22 and a World War II vet- 
eran. He attended evening classes 
held at New Hanover High School 
and worked during the day. It took 
him several years to earn a degree, 
finally graduating in 1950. 

The next year, he was

elected president of the Wilmington 
College Alumni Association and 
changed the organization's consti- 
tution to admit students as well as 
graduates as members; however, 
only those with an associate of arts 
degree could be officers. 

His involvement was short-lived 
because he was called back to 
active Army duty for the Korean 
War. He served for a total of 27 
years as an Army photographer 
and public affairs officer, retiring 
in 1971 as a lieutenant colonel. 

Calling himself "a little country 
boy from Wilmington," Blake re- 
turned home to found a magazine, 
Graphic Antiquarian, open com- 
mercial printing businesses, Blake 
Printing and Bee-Line Copy Cen- 
ters, and serve his community on 
the boards of the county commis- 
sioners, health and Cape FearCom- 
munity College trustees. 

Now retired, Blake 
and a few of his friends 
from the Wilmington Col- 
lege days get together 
monthly at a local restau- 
rant and reminisce.

was part of the early days,"

Major achievements 
A in marine sciences 



UNCW celebrates two of 
three major marine sci- 
ence achievements this 
year: the rededication of 
the Aquarius underwater 
laboratory and the 
groundbreaking for a new 
$17.5 million Center for 
Marine Science Research. 



School of Nursing plans 
new master's program 



UNCW's School of Nursing 
plans to attack major health 
problems in southeastern 
North Carolina with the help of 
a three-year, $720,199 grant 
from the U. S. Department of 
Health and Human Services. 

The first year of the grant will 
provide money to plan a 
master's degree program for 
rural and urban family nurse 
practitioners. The proposed 
program will be submitted to 
the UNC Board of Governors for 
approval, and the remaining 
funding will be used to imple- 
ment the program during the 
next two years. 

The new degree program will 
enable graduates to become 
family nurse practitioners, pro- 



viding medical services nor- 
mally associated with physi- 
cians, such as making 
diagnoses, ordering tests and 
prescribing medicines. 

In seeking the grant, the School 
of Nursing cited higher than 
normal incidence rates for 
heart disease, diabetes, stroke, 
cancer, substance abuse, teen 
pregnancy and motor vehicle 
accidents among uninsured 
and underinsured residents of 
southeastern North Carolina 
and unmet medical needs of 
Hispanic, Native American and 
African-American minorities. 

Although 83 universities na- 
tionwide competed for the 
grant, UNCW was one of only 20 
funded. 



UNCW is celebrating three sig- 
nificant achievements in its 
marine science program: the 
recommissioning of the 
Aquarius underwater labora- 
tory, groundbreaking for a new 
Center for Marine Science Re- 
search and federal funding of a 
mariculture research program.

Moss, UNCW Provost; N.C. 
Rep. David Redwine; Dr. James 
Merritt, Center for Marine Sci- 
ence Research director; N.C. 
Rep. Danny McComas; and 
Hannah Dawson Gage, UNCW 
Board of Trustees chair; sig- 
naled the beginning of a new 
era in marine science educa- 
tion and research with the 
groundbreaking of the $17.5 
million CMSR facility at Myrtle 
Grove which will replace the 
aging Wrightsville Beach com- 
plex. Construction should be 
completed by summer 1999, in 
time for the opening of die fall 
1999 semester. Major funding 
for the building was appropri- 
ated by the 1995 N.C. General 
Assembly. 

In addition to the ground- 
breaking, the university also 
christened the newest addition 
to its fleet of research vessels, 
the 63-foot Cape Fear which 
adds an important capability 
for overnight research oppor- 
tunities at sea. 

The National Undersea Re- 
search Program at UNCW, in 
partnership with NOAA, Harris 
Corp. and Harbor Branch 
Oceanographic Institution, re- 
furbished and upgraded 
Aquarius, the world's only un- 



dersea research laboratory, to 
improve efficiency, safety and 
scientific operations. The new 
system, dubbed Aquarius 2000, 
has a 33-foot unmanned navi- 
gational buoy with a microwave 
communications system that is 
linked to a shore-based station 
seven miles away. It will pro- 
vide live audio and video links 
to the vessel as well as provide 
life support systems to re- 
searchers 60 feet below the sea 
off Key Largo. 

Aquarius "will be used as a plat- 
form to capture the attention 
and imagination of the public 
about our coastal ocean, with 
coral reefs as a backdrop," said 
Provost Moss. 



'UNCW is well 
positioned to 
make a great 
contribution.' 

- U.S. Sen. Lauch Faircloth 



In October, the U.S. Congress 
named UNCW as the recipient 
of a $150,000 grant to initiate a 
major mariculture research pro- 
gram on campus. The program 
will address the science and tech- 
nology of raising marine species 
forcommercialpurposesandfor 
enhancing wild stocks of fish 
depleted by overfishing and 
habitat destniction. 

"We intend that UNCW will be a 
major mariculture center, lead- 
ing the way in research technol- 
ogy development and training 
far into the next century," said 
Chancellor James R. Leutze.

Lanunziata 
recognized 
for teaching 



Dr. Louis J. Lanunziata received 
the top recognition for teach- 
ing excellence at UNCW's fall 
convocation. 

Aprofessor of curricular studies 
in the Donald R. Watson School 
of Education, Dr. Lanunziata 
specializes in training students 
to teach behaviorally and emo- 
tionally handicapped (BEH) 
children. He received one of 
three Distinguished Teaching 
Professorships, which includes 
a $5,000, three-year stipend 
and the UNCW Board of Trust- 
eesTeaching Excellence Award 
for his significant contribu- 
tions to higher education 
through his dedication and 
service to students. 

For Dr. Lanunziata, the emo- 
tional, psychological and men- 
tal attitudes of his students are 
as important to their eventual 
success as the skills and strate- 
gies he teaches them. 

"I am still so involved in my 
profession because I promised 
myself in the beginning of my 
career to only permit students 
that I was sure in my heart have 
the 'effective' skills and 'affec- 
tive' ability to teach such chil- 
dren," he said. 

Distinguished Teaching Profes- 
sorships were also awarded to

Dr. William J. Cleary, earth sci- 
ences, received the Award for 
Faculty Scholarship. He has 
published more than 43 ar- 
ticles in professional journals 
and is the editor of a book pub- 
lished in 1996. His high stan- 
dards of research have twice 
earned him the Outstanding 
Paper Award. 




With $8.5 million appropriated 
in August for a new classroom 
building at UNCW, university 
officials are now working on 
strategies to obtain state fund- 
ing for a new Watson School of 
Education building. 

The classroom building, which 
will be designed by Boney Ar- 
chitects, will mirror Morton Hall 
on the north side of campus. 
Dave Girardot, assistant vice 
chancellor for business affairs, 
estimates the 50,000-55,000- 
square-foot building will be 
ready for students by the sum- 
mer 2000. No decision has been 
made on what departments will 
be relocated to the building. 

The move to secure a new 
school of education is part of 
UNCWs strategy to position 
itself asanational leader inpub- 



lic school education reform, an 
innovator in teacher prepara- 
tion, Chancellor James R. Leutze 
told the board of trustees in 
October. The school, which has 
won several national awards, 
has a growing statewide repu- 
tation and received glowing 
praise from Gov. Jim Hunt at 
convocation. 

In addition, UNCW was one of 
five UNC-system universities to 
receive a share of a $21 million 
appropriation designed to over- 
come past funding inequities. 
Tim Jordan, assistant vice 
chancellor for business affairs, 
told the trustees the $2. 6million 
U NCW received b ri ngs the total 
operations budget to an all-time 
high of $103 million, 42 percent 
of which comes from the state. 



Jacques named to lead 
university fund raising 



Kevin C. Jacques joined UNCW 
as vice chancellor for univer- 
sity advancement in July. 

The former executive director 
of development at Northern 
Arizona University, Jacques has 
18 years of development expe- 
rience in higher education. A 
native of Tacoma, Wash., 
Jacques began his fund-raising 
career at the University of Puget 
Sound and moved on to Wash- 
ington State University where 
as director of development he 
was responsible for more than 
$45 million in gifts and an in- 
crease in alumni giving par- 
ticipation that was ranked 
first amongpublic colleges and 
universities. 



University spokesperson Mimi 
Cunningham was promoted to 
assistant vice chancellor for 
university relations. She has 
been with UNCW since 1982, is 
chairing the 50 th anniversary 
celebration and manages a 
four-person news and publica- 
tions staff. 

Donna Cameron, who coordi- 
nated the NCAA Women's Na- 
tional Golf Championships in 
1995, has returned to UNCW as 
director of development, after 
working at Centura Bank as re- 
gional manager. She will super- 
vise fund raising to support and 
enhance academics at UNCW 
and increase the size of the 
university's endowment.

Fall/Winter 97 



The first of two parts The Early Years 



By Joe Browning 

The details are becoming a little 
sketchy now for William J. "Bill" 
Brooks. Long stretches of lonely high- 
way. Sleepless nights in isolated ho- 
tels. Fast food by the bagful. It's 
understandable because, after all, at 
one time he served as athletic director, 
chairman of the physical education 
department, baseball coach and bas- 
ketball coach at Wilmington College 
and the University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington. 

Brooks, 75, and his wife of 54years, Mar- 
garet, have better things to do these days. 
It takes a lot of time to keep up their 
beautiful four-bedroom home on scenic 
Everett's Creek on the outskirts of Wilm- 
ington. But Brooks doesn't mind. He's 
got plenty of time on his hands after 
spending 40 years on the job. 

"I'm enjoying it," he said of the relaxed 
lifestyle. "I don't have as much free time 
as I thought I would. I played a lot of 
golf and fished the first three years, 
but that can get old after awhile." 

It doesn't seem like that long ago that 
Brooks was driving the five miles each 
morning to his office on South College 
Road. All told, he worked out of four of- 
fices in Hinton James Hall, Hanover 
Hall and Trask Coliseum. And what he 
did in those offices made him a leg- 
endary figure in college athletics. 

With little physical and financial re- 
sources to draw from, he built the de- 
partment from scratch, nurtured it 
through its infancy and saw it through 
its metamorphosis into a competitive 
four-year institution.

Fall/Winter 97 



It was the spring of 1951, and Brooks 
was enrolled in the master's program 
at the University of Miami when he 
made a telephone call that changed his 
life. It also had a profound effect on 
Wilmington College and its history. 

Brooks, who had taught for two years 
at Colerain High School in Bertie 
County, contacted Leon Brogden of 
the New Hanover County School sys- 
tem about a newly created position 
that included working cooperatively 
for New Hanover High School and 
Wilmington College. 

"I came through Wilmington on 
my way to Nova Scotia, talked 
to Coach Brogden about the 
job, and started later in 
the fall," he recalled. "We 
didn't have a whole lot to 
work with that first year. In 
fact, on our first basketball 
team in 1951-52, we didn't 
have a single boy that had 
played regular on a high 
school team." 

Basketball, golf and tennis 
were the original sports at 
Wilmington College. In the 
first five years or so, basket- 
ball was the primary sport as 
the Seahawks competed in a 
junior college conference 
with several other schools. 

"We had one boy, Charlie 
Niven, who averaged 37 
points and led the nation," he 
said. "He played professional 
football in Canada. He could 
have played for anybody." 

In 1956-57, Brooks was able to 
devote all of his time to being 
the college's athletic director, 
and the Seahawks added base- 
ball in the spring of that year. As 
a result, like basketball, baseball 
developed into a signature sport 
for the college. 

"We went 6-8 that first year and 
then won the conference cham- 
pionship in 1958," he said. It was 

Denny Fields 



the beginning of a dynasty at the Port 
City school. 

His 1961 baseball team won the na- 
tional junior college championship in 
Grand Junction, Colo., sweeping the 
title in four straight games, and the 
1962 club followed with a second 
place finish. In 1963, the Seahawks 
again won the crown in four straight 
outings. Meanwhile, the 1961 and 
1962 basketball teams also reached 
the national playoffs. 

"We got to see a lot of the country, 
places I've never seen before and 
places I've never seen since," said 
Larry Honeycutt, a member of the 1963 
championship team who re- 
tired last year as the 
school's tennis coach 
following a 26-year 
career. 

"We went to 
Grand Junction 







through the southern part of the coun- 
try and came back through the middle 
part. We got to see a lot of things you 
wouldn't normally see." 

Honeycutt, who anchored down 
rightfield in the national tournament, 
remembers hopping on four station 
wagons for the trip to Colorado and 
playing alongside some of his previous 
adversaries in high school. 

"I was fortunate to hit the ball out of 
the stadium two or three times. I 
wound up hitting about .700 in tourna- 
ment and made the All-Tournament 
team. With that high altitude (Grand 
Junction, is about a mile above sea 
level), I guess I decided the easiest 
thing to do was to hit the ball out 
of the park rather than hit a triple 
because by the time you got to 
third base, you'd be ex- 
hausted. 

"That was a great trip with a 
lot of memories. On our way 
back, we saw the Minnesota 
Twins play Kansas City. A 
teammate of mine in high 
school, Jimmy Roland pitched 
for the Twins, and we saw him 
pitch that night. 

"I remember the athletes well 
and I had played against some 
of the players on that team and 
competed against Coach Brogden 
at New Hanover. I had won the state 
high school football championship 
and then won the national champion- 
ship in baseball here." 

Dr. David K. Miller, director of sum- 
mer sessions at UNCW, also played a 
key role in the school's early success 
on the diamond. He was a member of 
the first championship team, earning 
All-America honors at shortstop for 
the Seahawks, and also has fond 
memories of those early days. 

"I guess the thing that I remember the 
most is how we traveled," said Miller. 
"We would travel six to a wagon, with 
equipment in the back, all day and all 
night. The mode of travel was really 
different back then." 

After enjoying a solid career with the 



Seahawks, Miller transferred to Wake 
Forest and helped the Demon Deacons 
achieve immediate success. In fact, 
Miller was one of many Seahawk play- 
ers who made the smooth transition to 
four-year ball. 

Lou Howard became the top pitcher at 
Wake Forest, Bill Haywood went on to 
become the No. 1 hurler for UNC 
Chapel Hill. Larry Edens and Wayne 
Edwards turned into stars at Virginia 
Tech. Others signed pro contracts after 
finishing up with the Seahawks. 

UNCW, it seemed, had developed into 
a feeder school for the bigger pro- 



'I decided the easiest 
thing to do was to hit the 
ball out of the park rather 
than hit a triple because 
by the time you got to third 
base, you'd be exhausted.'

Member, 1963

grams, producing outstanding stu- 
dent-athletes who were ready for the 
prime-time pressure those programs 
brought. Brooks remembers at least 
seven former Seahawks playing for 
N.C. State one season. 

"When you think about the number 
of guys that did it, I guess we could 
be called a feeder school," Miller 
said. "I don't think that's a bad thing 
to say. I think it's a compliment that 
many people went from this place 
because it was a reflection of the 
quality of the program." 

Basketball, too, enjoyed a strong be- 
ginning as Brooks piloted the team for 



21 years, compiling a 256-228 record, 
including four consecutive 20-win 
seasons from 1959-62. But it's the 
1963 season that holds a special place 
in his heart as the Seahawks, behind 
Indiana native and tournament most 
valuable player Gene Bogash, reached 
the semifinals of the National Junior 
College Basketball Tournament in 
Hutchinson, Ks. 

"We had some outstanding teams 
during our last five years of junior col- 
lege. Gene had a half-hook shot 
around the basket. He was strong as a 
bull, knew how to rebound and knew 
how to play. If you saw him walk out 
on the court, you wouldn't think he 
looked like a basketball player." 
Bogash, who later transferred 
to Drake, was named to the 
all-time junior college bas- 
ketball team last year. 

With the help of adminis- 
trative assistant Mildred 
Woodward, the vener- 
able Brooks put the pro- 
gram on solid footing by 
compiling a staff that 
featured Miller, Earl 
Allen, Charlie Sproles 
and Judy Lewis. In 1964, 
the school obtained four- 
year status and joined the 
NAIA ranks, seeking a new 
identity in the process. 

The Program Evolves 

For 13 years, from 1964 to 1976, the 
Seahawks competed in the NAIA, 
working hard to continue the standard 
of success established in the junior 
college days. In addition, a women's 
program was launched, with Jan 
Donohue serving as the basketball and 
volleyball coach. 

"It was tough," Brooks said of the tran- 
sition. "It was difficult to get a baseball 
schedule. We were lucky if we got eight 
or nine home games. We ended up 
playing teams over our head." 

Baseball, however, fared well during 
that period. On June 1, 1969, three 
Seahawk pitchers - Eddie Booth, Pete 
Eyer and Eddie Atkins - finished

Fall /Winter 97 



ranked 1-2-3 in the nation 
in earned run average. Six 
years later, on Sept. 5, 1975, 
Brooks was selected "Na- 
tional Coach-of-the-Year" 
by his peers after directing 
the Seahawks to a 27 11-1 
season and reaching the 
NAIA national finals. 

When UNCW earned NCAA 
Division I status in 1977, 
the program had ascended 
to the top collegiate level. 
By that time, Mel Gibson, 
an assistant coach for 
Brooks, had taken over the 
basketball program, and 
Dave Allen was hired to ini- 
tiate a swimming program. 
Calvin Lane was directing a 
nationally-recognized soc- 
cer team. Dr. Lea Dudley 
had the women's golf team 
tearing up the links. 

"I was 30 years old when I 
got the head job, and I had 
no idea the program was 
going to grow like it has," 
said Gibson, former coach 
at Baptist College. "When 
we went Division I, the only 
thing we did was hang up a 
different shingle." 

After posting a 16-10 record 
in their first season of Divi- 
sion I hoops, Gibson's early 
teams racked up a string of 
three consecutive 19-win 
seasons, highlighted by a 
19-7 scorecard in 1977-78. 
That run has not been 
matched since. 

Gibson looks back fondly 
on the players who made a 
difference in those critical 
years. People like Denny 
Fields, a transfer from Bap- 
tist who racked up 30 
points in his first appear- 
ance for the Seahawks. 
Players like twins Bobby 
and Billy Martin, who gave 
UNCW a talented 
backcourt tandem. And 
workhorses the likes of 



Delaney Jones, Gary Coo- 
per, Danny Davis and Dave 
Wolff. 

"Those players were the 
most together group of any 
I've seen," said Gibson. 
"When practice was over, 
they didn't go their respec- 
tive ways. They'd go to the 
cafeteria together. They 
genuinely liked one an- 
other. When we got into 
close games, that made a 
big difference." 

Ironically, four individuals 
from those teams work to- 
gether today in the Mont- 
gomery County school 
system. Billy Martin is the 
head coach at East Mont- 
gomery High School an,d 
Bobby Martin heads up the 
West Montgomery High 
School program. Wolff is the 
principal at Mount Gilead 
Elementary School, while 
Art Paschal serves as princi- 
pal at West Montgomery. 

One of Gibson's most 
memorable nights came on 
Nov. 26, 1977, when the 
Seahawks battled nation- 
ally ranked Wake Forest 
before an overflow crowd 
in the first-ever game at 
Trask Coliseum. 

Gibson said, "The amount 
of noise was unbelievable. 
Tickets sold out quickly. We 
really captured the imagina- 
tion of a lot of people be- 
cause they saw we could 
compete with a team from 
the ACC. You could feel the 
electricity in the crowd. The 
fans came back, and atten- 
dance that year was good." 

Gibson took the Seahawks 
through several other mile- 
stones during his 14-year 
stint with the program. First 
NCAA Division I victory. 
First win in Trask Coliseum. 
First conference victory. 




Scholarship honors 
Coach Brooks 



UNCW pitcher/outfielder 
Jason Roach is the first 
recipient of an newly 
established athletic 
scholarship honoring 
former longtime baseball 
coach and athletic direc- 
tor William J. Brooks. 

"Many students and 
friends of the university 
don't realize what a ma- 
jor role Bill Brooks 
played in the develop- 
ment of both physical 
education and athletics 
at UNCW," said Percy 
Wood '66, chair of the 
Brooks Baseball Fund 
Committee. Wood joined 
former teammates Sandy 
Dew, David K. Miller, Ray 
Fraley, Marshall 
Hamilton, Jerry Hooks, 

Barrett Payne, Wray Ware and Doyle Whitfield in initiat- 
ing the scholarship to pay tribute to their mentor. 

"Hopefully, the Bill Brooks Baseball Fund will serve to 
make everyone more aware of the impact Bill Brooks 
had," Wood added. "Coach Brooks played a vital role in 
the lives of thousands of student-athletes. We wanted 
to honor him now as a symbol of our recognition and 
appreciation for his many achievements. 

"Many of us were on at least a partial athletic scholar- 
ship, and many, like myself, would not have been able 
to attend the university without this support. The Bill 
Brooks Baseball Fund will allow us to provide financial 
assistance to student athletes as well as support other 
baseball-related projects." 

Individuals or groups wishing to contribute to the fund 
may do so by contacting Patton McDowell in the Sea- 
hawk Club office at 910-962-3571.

First conference tournament triumph. 

Allen, meanwhile, arrived in July of 
1977 and was charged with laying the 
groundwork for a swimming program. 
His first team consisted of a total of 
eight people, anchored by Jim Baker, 
Denise Squires and Linda Rutton. To- 
day, Allen has 29 on the men's team 
and a record 37 on the women's squad. 

"We wanted to establish a program 
that would be able to compete with 
schools on our schedule," Allen said of 
his early objective. "We put together a 
dual meet schedule to help us get 
competitive. When we got to that level, 
we looked at programs that were much 
larger and more challenging." 

Allen also organized the 
Seahawk Invitational, a large 
meet at the end of February 
that served as the focal point 
of the season until conference 
affiliation was gained. The 
teams also joined with 17 
other schools to form the East- 
ern Collegiate Swim League, 
which staged a championship 
meet each March. 

The men's soccer program at- 
tracted national attention in 1980 
when Lane's team rolled to a 14-2 
record and was ranked third in the 
South and 20th in the nation. The 
team rallied behind All-South goalie 
Charlie Ingold and mainstays Doug 
Allman, Charlie Walls, Doug 
Powell, Dave Karlson and 
Dennis Davis. 

"They were all good players," Lane 
said. "As a unit, they blended well and 
played very good soccer for us." The 
high point of the year came in the sea- 
son finale when the Seahawks blanked 
ACC champion Duke, 1-0, on Karlson's 
dramatic game-winning goal. 

Golf developed into one of the most 
successful women's programs under 
the tutelage of Dudley, its originator. 
The team captured the first of three 
ECAC Championships on Sept. 27, 
1984, in Bayse, Va., after winning the 
AIAW Division III National Champion- 
ship in 1982. In 1990, Paula Brztowski 
became the school's first female par- 



ticipant in the NCAA Division I 
Women's Golf Championships at

While observers inevitably will argue 
over the best coaches or athletes in the 
school's history, they almost always 
concur on the most significant event - 
joining the highly-regarded Colonial 
Athletic Association. While no confer- 
ence championships will be decided in 
Wilmington this season, a total of 24

held on campus since the Seahawks 
were accepted into the highly-re- 
spected circuit. 

Becoming a member of the CAA didn't 
just happen overnight. It took several 
years of behind-the-scenes jockeying 
by Brooks, Chancellor Emeritus Dr. 
William H. Wagoner, then-Provost 
Charles Cahill and others to convince 
the league's committee to seriously 
consider the Seahawks. 

"We'd been approached by a number 
of conferences and Bill and I would 
discuss them," said Dr. Wagoner. 
"We felt we should wait and go for a 
real quality league. We found that in 
the CAA." 

Chuck Boone, the distinguished ath- 
letic director at the University of Rich- 
mond, was a member of that 
committee and says the Seahawks 



were welcomed with open arms. 

"The lasting impression I have with 
UNCW's first involvement is Bill 
Brooks," said Boone. "I was impressed 
with his sincere response and with the 
first-class atmosphere down there. Ev- 
eryone in our league felt that UNCW 
had a plan to be excellent in athletics 
and that by joining our conference, it 
would help them down the road. 

"I recently sent a letter to Dr. Leutze 
and told him that UNCW has been a 
great representative of the league be- 
cause the staff members have a lot of 
class. The athletic directors made a 
wonderful choice back then and can 
only prove to be better down the 
road." 

"I knew that in order to create 
interest, we needed to get into 
a conference," said Brooks. "I 
met with Scotty Whitelaw of 
the ECAC, and I had to meet 
with the committee in Balti- 
more. We became a member 
of the ECAC South in 1983-84, 
and the ECAC South later be- 
came the Colonial. 

"It was a big relief. I don't think 
many people down here felt like we 
had much of a chance of getting in 
with those established schools. I 
thought it was probably the most im- 
portant and biggest thing to happen to 
us in terms of growth and putting us 
into a position where we could grow." 

When Brooks announced his pending 
retirement on April 11, 1990, one of 
the most storied athletic careers in the 
country drew to a close. 

"Whatever the program was, has been 
or will be is owed to Bill Brooks," said 
Wagoner. "Nobody can pay him 
enough respect." 



In the spring 1998 edition of UNCW 
Magazine, Joe Browning explores 
the evolution of the Seahawk sports 
program following the end of the 
Brooks' era in 1990 and its promise 
for the future.

Rising from 
adversity, 
Lloyd '86 
teaches others 
to be 
successful 

Story and photos by 
Marybeth K. Bianchi 



Her blond hair and fair skin distinguished her from the other 
children at the school on the western Florida Indian reserva- 
tion where she was born. 

"They threw pebbles and rocks at me," Faye Lloyd '86 re- 
members. When her family moved from the reservation to a 
nearby town, she was accepted but her brothers and sisters 
were not, so the family continued its journey. By age 13, 
Lloyd had attended 32 different schools. 

"I was not a high school dropout," she reflects. "I was an el- 
ementary school dropout." 

Despite the many struggles she faced, Lloyd never gave up on 
her attempt to get an education. Recognized now as a gifted 
educator in her own right, Lloyd, 51, is helping children in 
Brunswick County experience success and continuing her 
own education as she pursues a master's in school adminis- 
tration at UNCW. 

Because her family life was troubled, Lloyd ended up in a foster 
home by the time she entered the sixth grade. One of the boys in 
that family asked if she would go to Georgia and marry him. In 
return he'd buy her a pair of shoes. 

"And so I did. I had just turned 13. But, I soon found out that 
wasn't all he had on his mind, and within a year, I was left 
alone with a daughter to take care of," she said. 

When her daughter was ready for school, Lloyd decided, she 
was, too. 

"I didn't know enough. My vocabulary was extremely lim- 




ited," she said. "I had a lot of learning to do." 

Working at night and going to school with her daughter during 
the day, Lloyd said the first-grade teacher took such an interest in 
her, "she never lost contact with me. She kept encouraging me." 

Still it wasn't a smooth journey for the young mother. At one 
school, the principal, looking down from the top of the steps 
at the entrance told her to go away. "Trash like you don't be- 
long here around these children," she remembers him saying. 
"I would just love to see his face now." 

When she was 16, after attending night classes for about six 
months, Lloyd took the GED, passing with the highest score 
in the class. Unfortunately, she wasn't eligible for the certifi- 
cate until she turned 18 - two years away. 

Faced with that fact and the realization that she knew 
enough to get a job, Lloyd concentrated on making a better 
life for her two children with her husband, Ronnie, to whom 
she has now been married 24 years. 

"When I was 35, 1 decided I would go back and get my GED, and I

Student affairs planning reunion 



By Linda Moore 

Were you involved in any activities out- 
side the classroom while you were a 
student here? Were you on the Seahawk 
staff, for instance, or did you join a 
club, or were you a student employee? 

If you participated in campus life in 
any way, you need to mark 
your calendar for May 
29-31, 1998. The Divi- 
sion of Student Affairs 
is inviting former 
students and former 
student affairs staff 
members to return 
to campus for are- 
union to commemo- 
rate UNCW'S 50 lh 
anniversary. Time wi 
be provided to visit 
classes and professors, hear 
about what's happening at 
UNCW now and its plans for the future, 
meet current students and staff, and of 
course connect with friends, faculty 

Doyou remember the time capsule? We do, and we'd 
like to hear your recollections. Please contact Nadya 
Labib, university events coordinator, at 910- 
962-7231 or via email at labibn@uncwil.edu. 




and staff from the past. 

Old friends, food, music, fun, the beach 
— what a great way to start the summer! 
It will also be a time to introduce family 
members all around; events are being 
planned to accomodate children as well. 

We need to identify those 
alumni who may be in- 
terested in this re- 
union, and you can 
help! If you can pro- 
vide the names of 
any students you re- 
member as being 
involved in campus 
life, please contact 
Linda Moore, student 
affairs development of- 
ficer in the Advancement 
Division, by mail, phone 
910-251-3159, fax 910-251-2685 or 
email: moorel@uncwil.edu. We have 
identified Greek students and athletes; 
it's other students who remain largely 
unidentified in the alumni database. 

We hope you choose to be a part of all 
the fun! Mark your calendar, spread 
the word and help us find others. Re- 
union information will be mailed in 
early spring. 



50th open house 
builds on UNCW, 
community ties 

By Nadya Labib 

Recognition of the close ties UNCW has 
to our local community is an ongoing 
theme of the 50 lh anniversary celebration. 

The Cape Fear Museum has installed a 
"Spotlight on UNCW" exhibit that illus- 
trates this central principle. The exhibit 
contains artifacts and memorabilia 
ranging from sports uniforms to year- 
books and will run through the end of 
January 1998, at which time it will be 
moved to the UNCW campus and dis- 
played through June. 

On March 29, 1998, the university will 
host an open house. Mark your calen- 
dar now - you won't want to miss this 
campus-wide celebration! This event 
will welcome old friends back to cam- 
pus and create new ones as members 
of our community tour facilities, enjoy 
special performances and meet the 
students and educators who contrib- 
ute to the vitality of UNCW. 

Another community-related activity 
underway at UNCW is the 50 ,h Toys for 
Tots Christmas present campaign. 
Toys for Tots, initiated by the U. S. 
Marine Corps, began its charitable 
work in 1947, and many of the service 
men and women who attended Wilm- 
ington College were involved. 

Finally, the Golden Alumni Tour is 
reaching out to alumni who live out- 
side the Wilmington area. Tour stops 
coming up in 1998 include Richmond, 
Va., on February 26, Greensboro on 
April 18 and Raleigh on May 30. The 
alumni website at www.uncwil.edu/ 
alumni has up-to-date information 
about the tour, or you may call 800-596- 
2880 or 910-251-2682.

Gifts from many alumni, 
parents and friends estab- 
lished new records in fis- 
cal year 1996-97, with gifts 
and new pledges totaling 
$2,882,950. This includes 
more than $2.5 million in 
outright gifts of cash, se- 
curities, property and 
equipment. This brings 
the Charting the Currents 
of Change Campaign, 
planned in conjunction with UNCW's 
golden anniversary, to a total of 
nearly $20 million toward its $25 mil- 
lion goal. 

The majority of contributions received 
during the campaign have been desig- 
nated for student scholarships and sup- 
port of U NCW's academic colleges, 
schools and departments. Significant 
support has also been designated to the 
university's Loyalty Fund, to the Alumni 
Association's renovation of Wilmington's 
historic Wise House and to the Seahawk 
Club's support of athletics. Sixty percent 
of gifts have been received from alumni, 
friends, parents and faculty-staff, includ- 
ing record new participation in alumni 




giving. Corporate and 
foundation giving, in- 
cluding matching gift 
programs, has also made a 
significant impact on cam- 
pus needs. 

The university's endow- 
ment and other funds un- 
der management, 
including life income 
gifts that provide a finan- 
cial return to donors, also 
established record highs, reaching a 
market value of $14 million by June 30, 
1996. This includes $1,665,926 in new 
gifts toward endowment in 1996-97. 

UNCW's 50"' anniversary observance 
will continue to be celebrated 
throughout the 1997-98 year. We in- 
vite every member and friend of the 
university community to become gen- 
erously involved in making a differ- 
ence toward UNCW's next fifty years.

On behalf of the university 
community, I am grateful 
for every donor whose 
name appears in this annual 
report. The University of North 
Carolina at Wilmington has made 
tremendous strides in its 
enrollment and quality in recent 
years. And, thanks to you, our 
future is even brighter. Our quality 
students, talented faculty and 
staff, and generous alumni and 
friends make our 50 lh anniversary a 
special time to count many 

accomp- 
lishments 
and 
blessings. 

Since its 
founding 
in 1947, the 
university 
has earned 
national 
recogni- 
tion as a 
premier undergraduate institution, 
as a world leader in marine science 
education and research, and as a 
leader in the use of new teaching 
and learning technologies. The 
difference we are making can be 
measured in the positive impact to 
our region's thriving economy, in 
sustaining the quality of North 
Carolina's unique environment 
and waterways, and in educational 
outreach to teachers, students and 
communities across the state. 

Each of our donors has made a 
difference in their support of the 
Loyalty Fund and the scholarships, 
facilities and distinguished 
professorships that their gifts have 
made possible. Thankyou for being 
a special part of our legacy. 

With all best wishes,

WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT UNCW 



All gifts to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and its 
foundation are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. 
Gifts may be designated for a specific use or left unrestricted to 
be used where the need is greatest. 
Cash Gifts 

The simplest and most frequently used method of giving is by 
personal check, made payable to the UNCW Foundation or di- 
rectly to UNCW. 

Securities 

Stock, bonds, certificates of deposit and other appreciated 
assets can provide significant tax savings for the donor while 
having a major impact on the life of the university. If you are 
considering a gift through this manner, please call the ad- 
vancement office at 910-962-3170 for instructions on how to 
transfer this gift. 

Property Gifts 

Many donors contribute their personal residences, land, com- 
mercial or other property to the UNCW Foundation. Personal 
property, including art, books, furnishings and special collec- 
tions, are also accepted through the campus collection. In most 
cases, these gifts are recorded at their fair market value as 
determined by an appraisal. 

Honorary and Memorial Gifts 

A gift to honor or memorialize a family member, friend or teacher 
is a very significant way to recognize others. The university sends 
a note to the family stating that a gift has been made in this 
manner. 

Matching Gifts 

Many companies match gifts made by their employees to higher 
education. If your company matches gifts, please include the 
appropriate matching gift form with your gift. The university will 
complete the necessary information and return it to your human 
resources office to generate the matching gift. 

Life Insurance 

There are two ways to donate life insurance policies. The first is by 
making the UNCW Foundation the owner and beneficiary of the 
policy, which may provide an immediate or ongoing income tax 
deduction. The second way is by naming the UNCW Foundation the 
beneficiary of a current policy. 

Planned Gifts and Life Income Plans 

The UNCW Foundation orthe university may be named as beneficiary 
in your will or trust. Life income plans such as charitable gift 
annuities and unitrusts may provide attractive options to the donor 
in the form of current income, tax wise benefits and estate 
planning, while providing for a future gift. The donor transfers 
assets such as cash, securities or property to the foundation or to 
the university. In exchange, the donor or designated beneficiary 
receives specified income benefits for life or a fixed term of years. 
Donors are encouraged to consult their financirl advisers when 
considering a planned gift. 

Pledges 

Major gifts may be pledged and completed over a period of time. 
Pledges for annual gifts are due by June 30 each year. 
Please Call on Us for Help 

The university advancement staff is available to consult with you 
or your advisors to discuss gift plans that can make a difference 
for you and for the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. 
For information or assistance please call 910-962-3170.

In Memory 
Frank Hawkins Kenan 

August 3, 1912 - June 4, 1996 

The University of North Carolina lost a Long- 
time friend and benefactor with the passing 
of Frank H. Kenan. A distinguished man from 
a noble Tar Heel family, Kenan continued his 
family's tradition of more than six 
generations of unselfish service and visionary 
leadership. In his generosity, he never forgot 
his roots in southeastern North Carolina. Gifts 
from the Kenan family provided UNCW with 
endowment funds, Kenan Auditorium, Kenan 
House and Wise Alumni House. Indeed, the 
Kenan family's philanthropic attention to 
American higher education, to the University 
of North Carolina, and to UNCW specifically, 
is unparalleled. 

Cited by former UNC President William C. 
Friday as "one of the most public-spirited 
people" in the history of North Carolina, 
Frank H. Kenan was also a model of 
entrepreneurial success. As president, 
chairman or chief executive officer of Kenan 
Oil Company, Kenan Transport Company, j 
Flagler and West Palm Beach Water, he] 
demonstrated far-sighted business acumen. 
As chairman of the William R. Kenan, Jr. Fund] 
and director and trustee of numerous 
foundations and charitable trusts, his] 
leadership focused on creative giving,] 
designed to tap the best efforts of the 
recipient while meeting needs that no one, 
else had yet recognized.

NEW GIFT 
CONCEPT HELPS 
STUDENTS NOW 
AND LATER 

UNCW has helped a national insurance company 
develop a special gift concept which allows do- 
nors to simultaneously make both a current and 
a deferred gift to the university. This program is 
being introduced during the University of North 
Carolina at Wilmington's 50 th anniversary year 
and encourages deferred gifts of $50,000 to en- 
dow merit scholarships here at UNCW. 

Based on a donor's age and using a five-year 
pledge, it is possible for UNCW to receive 



gifts which have current income and can also 
provide future income in the amount of 
$50,000, or more. A donor makes a gift to 
UNCW and agrees for the university to pur- 
chase a life insurance policy in his/her name. 
The policy would be owned by UNCW which 
would also be the beneficiary. The donor sim- 
ply agrees to make a tax-deductible annual 
gift for five years. Approximately 10 percent 
of the gift goes to UNCW for current needs 
without reducing the deferred gift, thereby 
securing a future endowed scholarship. 

One of the greatest challenges currently fac- 
ing UNCW is the need to increase the number 
of merit scholarships which will allow the 
campus to seek out and attract the strongest 
academic students possible. Over the past 
few years UNCW has consistently moved up 
in the UNC rankings of average SAT scores 



for incoming freshmen. This fall SAT average 
is 1084 which places us fourth from the top 
among the 16 campus system. 

Endowed merit scholarships are critical to 
our academic future, and gifts administered 
through this 50 th anniversary program can 
help insure a bright future for both the 
school and our students. Donors who create 
endowed scholarships have the option of 
naming them in honor or in memory of indi- 
viduals of their choice. 

For more information about this and other 
deferred gift and naming opportunities, 
please contact the advancement office at 
(910) 962-3170 or write to the UNCW Ad- 
vancement Office, 601 S. College Road, 
Wilmington, N.C. 28403. A brochure can be 
mailed showing ages and gift amounts need 
to create an endowed scholarship.

did," she said. 

She went on to graduate with honors 
from Coastal Carolina College and en- 
rolled at the University of North Caro- 
lina at Wilmington, where she graduated 
summa cum laude in 1986. 

Watson School of Education faculty took 
Lloyd under their wings. "They became 
my second family, "said Lloyd. Because 
she had never really been exposed to the 
structured environment of the classroom, 
Lloyd said, "Suddenly coming to a huge 
university was tough. They just held me in 
the palms of their hands and let me grow. 
They challenged me, and still do." 

The faculty encouraged her to get her 
master's degree which she expects to earn 
by May 1998. 

"They see in me a leader, but I would 
rather stay in the classroom, " Lloyd said. 

Described by her peers as a "teacher of 
teachers," Lloyd made her mark at 
Southport Elementary School in Brun- 
swick County for 10 years, creating en- 
thusiasm and an excitement for learning 
among her students. Now at the year- 
round Belville Elementary School near 
Leland, Lloyd is continuing a tradition 
of nurturing her students and working 
closely with their parents. 

"I found that student success correlates 
strongly with parent involvement, and 1 



absolutely insist on my parents being 
involved," she said. "I go to their 
homes, to their workplaces, prisons, 
wherever the fathers and mothers are." 

Honored in 1995 with the first UNCW 
Watson School of Education Alumni 
Achievement Award, Lloyd looks for in- 
novative ways to engage her students. 

Her combination third/fourth grade 
classroom is structured as a "mini soci- 
ety." Each student has a role to play 
and responsibilities to fulfill. There's 
the mayor, judge, deputy sheriff, nurse 
assistant, veterinarian, newspapereditor 
and librarian. 

"They govern themselves. They came up 
with the rules and consequences they 
could live with," Lloyd explained. They 
monitor each other's behavior and 
make sure things run smoothly in the 
classroom. As a result, Lloyd has few 
discipline problems. 

Cetting the children interested in 
learning by involving them directly in 
the process is key to Lloyd's success in 
the classroom. 

"I listen to them," Lloyd said. "It's their 
ideas. They are really involved in their 
learning. They know where they need 
to go. I'm a good guide. 

"I never design my classroom until they 
get here. Then I find out what kind of 
children I have and what their interests 
are," Lloyd said. When the school year 



started, the students set up the various 
learning centers around the classroom. 

This year weather is a key theme in 
their learning experience. The outdoor 
weather station was constructed from 
the students' design. 

"They drew it. We built it," said Lloyd 
who paid for the project out of her own 
pocket. "When the interest is there, I 
need to do it. If I had a year I could get 
a grant, but then the interest might not 
be there. They have ownership in it." 

Each day the students chart wind direc- 
tion, temperature, barometric pressure, 
make weather forecasts and learn a lot 
of math and science in the process. A 
garden planted near the station provides 
additional lessons, and students learned 
firsthand the effects of erosion when a 
downspout broke during a rainstorm 
and washed away some of their plants. 

Lloyd does very little lecturing in class. 
Ideas for lessons come from the chil- 
dren themselves and are a combination 
of the state-mandated curriculum and 
their own interests. Freed from tradi- 
tional teaching methods, Lloyd is able 
to work closely with individual stu- 
dents, observing their learning styles 
and finding ways to enhance them. 

Lloyd's teaching methods may be uncon- 
ventional, but the results are proven. 
Year after year, her students achieve high 
test scores.

UNCW Magazine 2 7 




Cathy Gilbert and Chris Ray '95 were among the UNCW alumni who came out for 
the first stop on the Golden Alumni Tour at Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte to learn 
about the university's history and where it's headed in the next 50 years. 



Alumni take anniversary tour 

The UNCW Alumni Association is on the road celebrating the 
university's 50 lh anniversary and letting alumni and friends know 
about the university's accomplishments and its promising future. 

The Golden Alumni Tour began in September in Charlotte and 
continued on to Jacksonville in October. In all, the association will 
visit alumni at five cities in North Carolina and Virginia over a 
seven-month period. 

Upcoming stops include: 

• February 26 in Richmond, Va., at Embassy Suites, 
UNCW's home base during the Colonial Athletic Asso- 
ciation tournament. 

• April 4 in Greensboro 

• May 30 in Raieigh 

Each event includes a social hour, dinner and a program, featuring 
the video "Promises Made, Promises Fulfilled," special alumni 
speakers and updates on the university. There is a charge, and 
reservations are required for each event. 



Alumni provide career network for undergraduates 



By Thorn Rakes & Karen Thompson 

During the summer of 1996, parks and 
recreation major Shannon Pennington 
was busy developing a network of con- 
tacts to complete her required fall semes- 
ter internship in therapeutic recreation 
and natural resource management. 

After reviewing a list of internship sites 
in the office of Vickie Parker, a lecturer 
in HPER, Shannon set out to find the 
perfect location. 

Shannon knew she wanted to eventu- 
ally work full time in the Triangle area, 
and her internship in therapeutic rec- 
reation was to be with an organization 
that served psychiatric patients. With 
this combination, UNCW alumni were 
waiting in the wings to meet her needs. 

Into the picture entered Rom Alphin 
'83 and Allen Guy '85, both UNCW 
alumni who are certified therapeutic 
recreational specialists at Dorothea 
Dix Psychiatric Hospital in Raleigh. 

As a student, Rom thought business 



administration was his ticket to suc- 
cess, but his mind was changed one day 
by an experience he says he will never 
forget. A sophomore from Verona, N.C., 
Rom wandered through Hanover Hall 
during the annual Special Olympics. 

The children looked like they were hav- 
ing so much fun, so Rom thought he 
would just jump in and help. As he 
talked with the children, one meek and 
mild little fellow standing in line 
seemed to need attention. Rom asked 
him what he liked to do, and the child 
responded, "I like to sing like Elvis 
Presley." With this comment, the boy 
broke out into a loud, enthusiastic ren- 
dition of "You Ain't Nothin' but a 
Hound Dog." 

At that moment, Rom decided to make 
his life's work helping special children 
like that. After changing his major to 
parks and recreation administration, 
many Special Olympics, internships 
and significant work experiences 
through Camp Easter, Rom went to 
Dorothea Dix Hospital where he now 
works with individuals in their transi- 



tion from patient to active citizen. 

Allen, originally from Fayetteville. 
settled on parks and recreation, with 
an emphasis in therapeutic recreation 
after transferring to UNCW from an- 
other university. Like his father, who 
was a vocational rehabilitation coun- 
selor, Allen wanted a career in which 
he could be directly involved in a sig- 
nificant way with the improvement of 
others' lives. Following his own intern- 
ship experience, Allen was one of 
those fortunate graduates who had an 
offer prior to graduation and a job 
waiting in a private psychiatric hospi- 
tal before joining the staff at Dorothea 
Dix as a certified therapeutic recre- 
ation specialist. 

In Shannon's internship, Allen super- 
vised her training with inpatient ser- 
vices. The work initially involved 
shadowing a therapist, then assisting a 
TR specialist and finally assuming re- 
sponsibility with their supervisor for 
group sessions. Although the sessions

Wise Alumni House loan retired, 
association focuses on furnishings 



Retiring the $400,000 Wise Alumni House 
renovation loan in June, the UNCW Alumni 
Association is now focusing its attention on 
acquiring period furnishings and other 
items to decorate the house. 

While some have been donated, others are 
being purchased with contributions not 




needed to repay the debt and additional 
monies contributed by generous individu- 
als and businesses including BB&T, Mary 
Wiley and Tabitha McEachern . 

A handcarved antique oak organ was do- 
nated by Elizabeth Parker Dawson in honor 
of the Bullock family. The organ has been 
placed under the stair- 
case in the foyer, at the 
same location Jessie 
Kenan Wise had her 
player piano. 



Associate Vice Chancellor Tyrone Rowell presents a symbolic check to Jerry 
Wilkins of United Carolina Bank, signifying the repayment of the alumni 
association's Wise House renovation loan. 



10 students awarded 
$1,500 scholarships 

Perhaps the best outreach done by the 
alumni association each year is to award 10 
scholarships to deserving UNCW students. 

Recipients for the 1997-98 academic year 
are Maria Zullo Richardson of Jacksonville, 
Krystal A. McMillan of Watha, Donna L. 
Packer of Wilmington, James W. Perfield II 
of Cato, N.Y., Jonathan D. Auten of 
Thomasville, Wytisha Geathers of 
Chadbourn, Maria Sabella of Hampstead, 
junior Cherie Formyduval of Whiteville and 
Jamie Hammonds of Wilmington. 

Nicholas J. Allen was the recipient of the 
Daniel P. Lockamy Graduate Scholarship. 
He received the alumni scholarship as an 
undergraduate and was the first graduate of 
UNCW's Honors Program, a feat he accom- 
plished in just three years. 

The $1 ,500 scholarships are awarded on the 
basis of academic achievement and finan- 
cial need and are renewable. 

Fall/Winter 97 



Buck Cheatham, the 
grandson of Dolores 
Cheatham and Edwin 
C. Holt who were the 
home'soriginal owners, 
has donated a round 
mahogany pedestal 
table which will be 
placed under the chan- 
delier in the center of 

the foyer. Percy Smith has donated a nig for 

the downstairs area. 

The association is buying two chandeliers 
for the grand room. The double-tiered fix- 
tures feature graceful scrolls and sweeping 
arms cased in solid brass and details in an 
olde brass finish. Additional light fixtures 
for the public restrooms on the first floor 
and lights and mirrors for the upstairs baths 
are on the shopping list as are a sideboard 
and buffet for the dining room. Carpeting in 
the pantry and kitchen will be replaced with 
tile flooring. A sound system will be in- 
stalled in the downstairs and on the porches. 

Attention is als o being given to the exterior 
of the house. Dave Girardot, assistant vice 
chancellor for business affairs, said repairs 
have been made to the slate roof, and cos- 
metic structural repairs to the columns and 
wood siding will be completed before paint- 
ing. He hopes the exterior refurbishing will 
be completed by Christmas, weather per- 
mitting. 

What a nice present for Miss Jessie!

ciation will receive $15 from every 
license plate ordered. This contribu- 
tion supports the 10 student scholar-

cation for a Seahawk license plate

In May 1988, at the invitation of Chancellor William H. 
Wagoner, 13 membersoftheUNCWfacultywhohadtaught 
in the Isaac Bear Building between 1947 and 1961 met to 
discuss the formation of an honorary organization to com- 
memorate Wilmington College. 

It was decided at that time to form the Order of Isaac Bear. 

The Isaac Bear Building was part of the New Hanover 
High School complex located at 13th and Market streets. 
The building was donated by the Bear family to New 
Hanover County Schools and originally served as an el- 
ementary school. The Wilmington College students and 
faculty enjoyed many happy times at the Bear Building 
before relocating to the new campus in 1961. 

The Order of Isaac Bear adopted as its purpose the rec- 
ognition of "those who have demonstrated loyalty to 
UNCW, contributed to the academic quality of the uni- 
versity or had a significant role in uniting the institu- 
tion and the community." 

Charter members are Louis H. Adcock, Mary Dixon Bel- 
lamy, Water C. Biggs, William J. Brooks, Thomas P. Brown, 
Joanne K. Corbett, J. Marshall Crews, Calvin Lee Doss, 
Thomas R. Lupton, Dorothy P. Marshall, Duncan P. 
Randall, Gerald S. Rosselot, Doug W. Swink and, as an 
honorary member, William H. Wagoner. 

Associate members are Emsley Laney, the only living 
member and chairman of the New Hanover County Board 
of Education under which Wilmington College was 



founded; Fred Graham and B. D. Schwartz, who served as 
members of the board of trustees of Wilmington College 
or UNCW. Deceased associate members are Raiford Trask 
and J. Fred Rippy who also served as trustees. 

The membership of the Order of Isaac Bear has grown to in- 
clude Frank Allen, WaLser Allen, Jack Dermid, Carol Ellis, Isabell 
Foushee, Claude Howell and Adrian Hurst (both deceased), 
David Miller , Rolla Nelson, James Parnell, Elizabeth A. Pearsall, 
Daniel B. Plyler, Gerald Shinn and David E. Warner. 

A scholarship was established by the order and is avail- 
able to a qualified junior, senior or graduate student who

In discussing the order with Joanne Corbett, Dr. Wag- 
oner said, "Most universities have honorary organiza- 
tions. We now have one named the Order of Isaac Bear. 
It is an organization of remembrance of where we came 
from, and its aim is to protect our history and our tradi- 
tions and to honor those who have served the university 
with loyalty and dedication."

with the passing of Friends of 
UNCW co-founder Sylvia Schwartz 
on August 7, 1997, and current 
president Carolyn Morris on Septem- 
ber 13, 1997. 

In the summer of 1963 Mrs. 
Schwartz and Edith Kallman orga- 
nized the Friends of Wilmington Col- 
lege and undertook the expansion 
of Randall Library as their initial 
project. Their contributions helped 
add enough volumes and periodicals 
for initial accreditation by the 
Southern Association in 1968. 

She and her husband, B. D. 
Schwartz, who was instrumental in 
the founding of Wilmington College 
as a member of the first board of 
trustees, supported the institution 
in numerous ways throughout its 
growth and development over the 
last 50 years. In 1992 they estab- 
lished the Sylvia and B.D. Schwartz 
Graduate Fellowship with a gift of 
$25,000 to UNCW. 

Mrs. Morris was a member of the 
Friends for many years. Her first 
term on the board of directors be- 
gan in 1981, and from 1985-87 she 
was treasurer. After a seven-year 
hiatus, she returned as vice presi- 
dent in 1995 and was named presi- 
dent earlier this year. 

Each year, the Friends raise approxi- 
mately $10,000, most of which is 
returned to campus, funding a vari- 
ety of projects and needs. Funds 
will be established in memory of the 
two deceased members.

system inaugurates 
Broad as new president 




The 16 schools in the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina system 
are celebrating the inaugura- 
tion of their new president, 
Molly Corbett . 
Broad. She is the 
first woman to 
serve as president 
of the UNC system 
and is its first leader 
who is not a North 
Carolinian. 

The successor to C. 
D. Spangler who 
served as president 
for 1 1 years, Broad Broad 
was executive vice chancellor of 
the 23-campus California State 
University System, the largest 
senior system of higher educa- 
tion in the country, where she 
emphasized technology asa way 
to provide access to education. 
She is credited for developing a 
systemwide plan for informa- 
tion technology and imple- 
menting major improvements 
in teacher education. 

A native of Pennsylvania, Broad 
is a 1962 Phi Beta Kappa gradu- 
ate of Syracuse University, where 
she earned an undergraduate 



degree in economics. She holds 
a master's degree in the field 
from Ohio State University and 
has completed all coursework 
toward a doctorate 
from Syracuse. 

UNCW Chancellor 
James R. Leutze, who 
was a finalist for the 
top leadership posi- 
tion, is among the uni- 
versity officials 
participating in the in- 
auguration ceremo- 
nies in Raleigh and 
Chapel Hill. UNCW 
students, faculty and staff are 
celebrating duringa program in 
the University Union's newly 
renovated Hawk's Nest which 
includes a brief video highlight- 
ing the unique role that Presi- 
dent Broad occupies in 
American higher education. 

The 1998 Board of Governors' 
Teaching Awards are also part 
the inaugural activities. The pre- 
sentation of the teaching awards, 
as well as the O. Max Gardner 
award, are part of an academic 
convocation in honor of teach- 
ing in the university system. 




In the Treasure Coast documentary, Chancellor James R. Leutze interviewed 
Ocracoke fishermen about the effects of tourism on their livelihood.

Class of 1998 leaves mark on campus 



UNCW's Class of 1998 is leav- 
ing its permanent mark on 
campus. Seniors are purchas- 
ing bricks engraved with their 
names which will be laid in 
front of Randall Library, sur- 
rounding an eight-foot bronze 
casting of the UNCW seal. 

Tom Gale, senior class 

president, hopes this 

project will begin a new tra- 

at the university. He 



said it would be nice if each 
graduating class following 
would continue the tradi- 
tion and that only seniors 
were allowed to walk across 
the new seal. 

With a $75 contribution, se- 
niors get their names en- 
graved in a brick, special 
senior T-shirts and their 
names listed in a donor 
book which will be placed in 



the library. For $25, seniors 
get their names listed in the 
donor book and receive the 
T-shirt, and for $5 their 
names will be listed in the 
donor book. 

All money raised will fund 
the project; any excess will 
benefit either the Class of 
'99 treasury or fund a Se- 
nior Week in the spring.

Treasure Coast aired statewide 
on the University of North 
Carolina Center for PublicTele- 
vision in September. Elaine 
Penn was the executive pro- 
ducer and project director. The 
script was written by Philip 
Gerard of UNCW's Creative 
Writing Department, and the 
filming was done by North 
Carolina State University's Cre- 
ative Services Department. 

Treasure Coast radio advertise- 
ments also received a first-place 
award. Television promotions 
received an honorable mention. 

In addition, UNCW received a 
special merit award in the gen- 
eral news story/ series category 
for its entry "Cape Fear River 
Facing Severe and Increasing 
Threats." A news release on the 
N.C. General Assembly's $1.5 
million appropriation for water 
quality monitoring on the Cape 
Fear River was issued by the 
university and as a result, area 
media gave extensive coverage 
to the plight of the river and the 
university's efforts to stave off 
further degradation.

UNCW continuing its lead in distance learning 



Chancellor James R. Leutze was 
N.C. Gov. Jim Hunt'sdesignated 
representative from the UNC 
system to discuss distance learn- 
ing opportunities during a trip 
to the Far East in January. 

Traveling in Thailand, Japan 
and Indonesia, Chancellor 
Leutze heard one recurring 
message from leaders in gov- 
ernment, business and educa- 
tion - they want access to 
American higher education via 
distance learning technologies, 
and they want it now. 

UNC Wilmington is willing to 
provide the leadership to make 
it happen. 



Leutze's trip began in Thailand 
wherehe participated in a Kenan 
Institute Asia (KlAsia) Board of 
Directors meeting in Bangkok. 
OnereasonforLeutze'sappoint- 
mentto this board was his three- 
part UNC-TV "Globe-Watch" 
television documentary which 
focused on Thailand, as well as 
his continuing interest in the 
institute's program. 

Another topic of discussion was 
how North Carolina could as- 
sist the government of Thailand 
in providing scholarships to al- 
low its brightest students to

midnight on Time-Warner 
Cable Channel 5. 

UNCW-TV is joined in this ef-

fans everywhere," said Seahawk 
Club Executive Director Patton 
McDowell, who is coordinating 
the fund-raising effort. 

Most of the money raised - with 
an anticipated goal of several 
million dollars - will be used 
renovate UNCW's athletic facili- 
ties including Trask Coliseum, 
Greene Track and Field and the 
softball, soccer and baseball 
complexes. 

Other funds will go to the ath- 
letic endowment for scholar- 
ships. The university currently 
awards nearly $1 million in ath- 
letic scholarships per year, 
funded by a combination of en- 
dowment income, annual gifts 
and revenues. The athletic en- 
dowment is just under $400,000, 
making it the smallest in the CAA. 

Over the past year, the Seahawk 
Club surpassed its own

and membership is up from 530 
to 884 members.

In Japan, Leutze met leaders of 
the Digital Communities 
Project, a program to develop

tures, orstates, formed this effort 
to find ways to use modern tech- 
nology to develop their total in- 
formation delivery system, 
incorporatingeducation, medi- 



cine and legal and government 
operations. 

"The Japanese view the United 
States as being very far ahead of 

them in the use of distance 
learning and digital communi- 
cation and they want to learn 
from the U.S. what we can do 
and how we do it," said Leutze. 

The chancellor is enthusiastic 
about the possibilities of inter- 
national distance learning. This 
trip convinced him that there 
are governments and people 
who are willing to invest a lot of 
money to make this technology 
work, and UNCW is willing to 
help.

At CROSSROADS 
students learn 
to make 'right' 
choice 

By Katie Noonan '97 

It was a hot summer night on July 
26, 1996 when Joe* (not his real 
name) and his friend were engaging 
in the typical college student event: 
bar hopping at the local clubs. 

Drinking and driving was not the only 
risk they were taking. While partying, 
they were leaving the bars to get 
"jacked" on cocaine in Joe's car. As 
they got out of the car to resume 
drinking they didn't notice a bike pa- 
trol officer nearby. That's when Joe's 
friend began to vomit from ingesting 
the cocaine. 

This grabbed the attention of the po- 
liceman, and he came over to investi- 
gate. "Have you eaten any drugs 
tonight?" the officer asked. "No sir," 
responded the friend. The officer then 
asked to search the car, and Joe non- 
chalantly consented, thinking he could 
fool him by acting as though he had 
nothing to hide; but boy, did he. 

The officer found an "eight ball," that 
is three and a half grams of cocaine, 
and it was in a rather obvious place, 
the change holder. Backup and the K-9 
were called in, and off to jail Joe and 
his friend went. 

Joe was ordered to do community ser- 




vice, and since he would be attending 
UNCW in the fall he opted to serve on 
campus. This is where he found CROSS- 
ROADS, the campus Substance Abuse 
Prevention and Education Program. 

"CROSSROADS helped me, and I help 
CROSSROADS," Joe stated. When 
asked how he began doing drugs, he 
explained that marijuana and cocaine 
were plentiful among his friends: "Cu- 



riosity got me because it was always 
there and it was free. All my friends 
would do it, and I knew how much fun 
they had." So he jumped on the band- 
wagon, became addicted to both mari- 
juana and cocaine and was arrested. 

The CROSSROADS program began at 
UNCW under a different name in the 
mid-eighties, and through the years 
the name has changed. With an infu-

Spring/Summer 1998 



sion of federal funding in the late '80s 
and early '90s, the program was publi- 
cized more on campus and resources 
expanded. As a result, more students 
took the initiative to ask questions or 
seek help for themselves or a friend. A 
year ago Sam (Suzanne) Shover joined 
the program team with new ideas, and 
with that came a new name, CROSS- 
ROADS. 

As the director of CROSSROADS, 
Shover reformulated the program pre- 
viously known as Alternatives! Her 
philosophy is based on counseling and 
treatment for students faced with 
today's challenging decisions. 

The name CROSSROADS represents 
the processes involved when coming 
to a crossroad: you must stop, con- 
sider the consequences and make a 
decision. The program is to help stu- 
dents learn to think about the conse- 
quences of their actions and hopefully 
make the right choice. 

There are different procedures that 
CROSSROADS takes to educate and 
help students to make decisions. There 
are the educational materials, which 
consist of brochures, videotapes, a re- 
source library and staff to answer any 
questions. UNCW's Housing and Resi- 
dence Life incorporates CROSSROADS 
into its evening resident meetings 
where Shover and students who work 
with her speak to the residents about 
what the program has to offer. 

Freshmen are faced with whole new 
experiences moving away from home 
and being on their own. With that 
comes the stress of finding their place 
with friends and peers and doing well 
academically. This is where many 
freshmen choose the wrong road. 
Shover has been asked to speak to 
many of the freshmen seminar classes 
of various academic departments in 
the hope of helping students make de- 
cisions and to show CROSSROADS as 
an answer for help. 

Many times students go to CROSS- 
ROADS because they know someone 
who has a problem with drugs, alcohol 
or tobacco, and they want to help them. 
Shover shows them ways to help their 



friend or family member recognize 
signs and symptoms of their abuse. 

Shover said, "If that person realizes 
they have a problem, we're available, 
but you can't fix a person and make 
them stop. They have to want to stop." 

When students come to CROSSROADS 
and Shover finds their problem, such 
as coping with someone close who has 
an addiction, she offers the help of the 
Counseling Center. 

Dee Casey is one of the counselors at 
the center who does voluntary assess- 
ments and intervention. "I see many 
students who voluntarily come in 
seeking help with their own problems 
with drugs or alcohol, but also stu- 
dents come in because of stress or de- 
pression and many times substance 
abuse is the underlying problem." The 
largest number of students Casey deals 
with are those who are affected by 
other's problems, usually primary rela- 
tionships, friends, family, a significant 
other, a roommate. 

If students are caught on campus with 
alcohol or drugs, the dean and or the 
assistant dean of students is called to 
investigate. Dean of Students Terry 
Curran says, "There are two ways we 
interact with CROSSROADS: judicial 
referrals and student concern." 

Depending on the severity in a judicial 
referral, students are sent to CROSS- 
ROADS' Challenging Decisions (CD) 
classes. Students who violate UNCW's 
alcohol policy must attend the class 
which focuses on alcohol abuse and 
drugs in general. If they are caught 
with marijuana, they must attend both 
the CD class and the Challenging De- 
cisions on Marijuana. If a stu- 
dent is found with any other 
type of drug considered more 
dangerous, the student may be 
suspended. 

"Many times parents are con- 
cerned with how their son or 
daughter is doing so we have the 
student in to find out what is go- 
ing on with them," states Dean 
Curran. Often it is when the dean or 
assistant dean meets with the student 
that they realize there is a problem 



with drugs or alcohol due to an un- 
derlying stress, such as family, 
school, friends or a significant other. 
From there they refer the student to 
CROSSROADS where Shover helps 
them find healthier outlets for relief. 
If Shover feels that the student's 
stress is more serious then she refers 
him/her to the Counseling Center. 

Dean Curran comments on the 
CROSSROADS program, "My impres- 
sion over the last 18 months about 
the program is that it has a very posi- 
tive impact. They have a real dialogue 
with the students. Relevant, resource- 
ful, solid information." Assistant 
Dean Leah Payne states, "If we're not 
seeing the students again, then it's 
successful." 

Both Shover and Casey commend the 
administrative involvement at 
UNCW. "We are very fortunate to 
have the support we do from the ad- 
ministration, I'm real impressed," 
said Shover. Casey added, "We have 
more support than other UNC univer- 
sities, and it shows that our adminis- 
tration is committed to helping 
students." 

Both also work with some faculty to 
recognize when students have a prob- 
lem, "so we don't lose people through 
the cracks," replies Casey. 

Even though his community service 
has been long completed, Joe contin- 
ues to work at CROSSROADS. While he 
doesn't want a career in the field, he 
says, "I will always be involved in it." 

An intern in the UNCW University 
Relations Office, Katie Noonan has a 
bachelor's degree in communications studies.

SEARCHED FOR A SUCCESSOR TO WlLLIAM J. "Bill." BROOKS IN 
1990, IT SOUGHT SOMEONE WITH A FUND-RAISING BACKGROUND 
AND THE EXPERIENCE TO LEAD THE PROGRAM INTO A CRUCIAL 
PERIOD. A SEARCH COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED PAUL A. MlLLER, 
A 32-YEAR VETERAN OF COLLEGIATE ATHLETICS, TO LEAD THE WAY. 

"On my arrival, I found a great foundation," Miller said. "The 
facilities were in place for most of the sports, the attitudes 
were good and we were doing quite well for being a relatively 
young Division I program. If you look at the early years, it was 
a bold move because we were not on the same level financially 
as the schools we competed with. Someone had great fore- 
sight because now it's tough to get into any conference." 

The 1990's have been marked by an escalation in the school's 
athletic fortunes. The men's basketball team has come within 
an eyelash of earning an NCAA berth four times. Athletes have 
qualified for national championships. And fund raising has 
been stepped up. 

The university also hosted its first NCAA Championship in 
1995 when the NCAA Women's Golf Championship was staged 
at Landfall's Pete Dye Course. 

One of Miller's top accomplishments came on Nov. 21, 1996, 
when UNCW received notification from the NCAA the athletic 
program had been certified, confirming that the school was in 
full conformity with the operating principles of NCAA Divi- 
sion I membership. 

He also is proud of his track record with scholarship money, 
which details a dramatic increase from $400,000 to $900,000 
in his seven years. 

"We did not try to upgrade the facilities at great costs and at 
the expense of scholarships," he said. "We've been deter- 
mined to give our coaches more to work with, and I'm pleased 
with that. We've also upgraded the baseball field and added 
lights to our soccer stadium." 

Evidence of UNCW's resurgence in athletics showed in 1996- 
97 when the track and field team captured the school's first 
CAA title, the men's basketball team shared the regular season 
championship and three coaches -Allen (women's swimming 
and diving), Jerry Wainwright (men's basketball) and Jim 
Sprecher (men's track and field), were acknowledged by their 
peers as "Coach of the Year" in the CAA. 

"I certainly was delighted that the men's track team won the

conference championship last year," said Dr. James R. Leutze, 
the university's chancellor since 1990. "I'm not as hung up on 
conference championships though. I want us to be competitive. 
When we go on the court or go on the field, I want our young men 
or young women to know that they have a chance to win." 

Success Stories 

Close to 50 years of athletic competition will produce many 
great student-athletes, and UNCW's program is no exception. 
While it's difficult to single out specific cases, certain players 
come to mind as excellent products of the system. 

Take Carl Willis, for example. After growing up in the sprawling 
tobacco fields of rural North Carolina, the Yanceyville native 
was an outstanding pitcher for the Seahawks in the early 1980's 
who earned a World Series ring with the Minnesota Twins in 
1991. He is currently a minor league pitching instructor for the 
Cleveland Indians organization. 

"When I was at UNCW, we were able to compete against top- 
notch competition, and that made you better," said Willis. "My 
time at UNCW was one of the most enjoyable times in my life." 

Former swimming standout Sam O'Leary, a member of Coach 
Dave Allen's first recruiting class, also ranks as an exemplary 
student-athlete. 

"When you cut through everything, Sam was a real tough 
competitor," said Allen. "Sam was not afraid to get up and race 
people. When he came in as a freshman, he wanted to qualify 
for the NCAA's." 

And qualify he did. O'Leary not only made times to compete in 
the 1982 NCAA's at the Eastern Championships, he copped 
All-America honors by finishing I lth nationallv in the 100- 
yard Butterfly. 

"Coach Allen has been a rock of Gibraltar," said O'Leary, 
recreation manager at nearby Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville. 
"He's a real leader and shows great sportsmanship in swim- 
ming and everyday life. He was like a second father to us. I took 
away his work ethic and his great insight into becoming adults 
and being a part of the community." 

All-time basketball great Brian Rowsom also arrived quietly 
on the UNCW campus and left with a bushel of honors. He 
attended tiny Columbia (N.C.) High School in the northeast 
corner of the state and didn't appear to have a future in 
basketball until he caught the eye of Mel Gibson who was the 
men's coach from 1972 to 1986. 

"We saw Brian as a junior because we were looking at another 
player," Gibson recalled. "He only weighed about 180 pounds, but

Hall of fame to 
recognize key 
players 

The UNC Wilmington Athletic Hall 
of Fame will have its charter induc- 
tion on Saturday, May 9. Up to five 
individuals will make up the first 
class of inductees. 

"It's only fitting that we honor 
those who have contributed to the 
success of the program through the 
years. This will heLp us recognize 
key contributors to the program 
and buiLd on the tradition they 
started," said Paul A. Miller, direc- 
tor of athletics. 

Candidates must have made outstand- 
ing contributions during their associa- 
tion with UNCW. Student-athletes 
must have left the university as a 
graduate. Teacher-coaches or adminis- 
trators must have held that position 
for at least five years. Special consid- 
eration will be given for significant 
contributions to society through com- 
munity activities and performance in 
chosen fields that bring credit and 
distinction to the university. 

The 11-person selection committee 
includes the athletic director, di- 
rector of alumni relations, sports 
information director, senior 
women's administrator, director of 
the Seahawk Club, director of mi- 
nority affairs, a faculty representa- 
tive, a member of the Seahawk 
Club's development committee, the 
special assistant to the chancellor 
and two at-large representatives. 

Inductees will be honored at a spe- 
cial ceremony and be recognized at 
UNCW's baseball game that day 
against Western Carolina. Special 
plaques commemorating their induc- 
will be displayed at a location to 
; i 'ied. 



we went with him early and knew he was 
going to be a player." 

Rowsom, a member of the Charlotte Hor- 
nets' original team, still holds the school's 
scoring and rebounding records with 1 ,974 
points and 1,015 rebounds. He remains 
the only non-Hoosier in the history of the 
Indiana Classic to earn tournament most 
valuable player honors. 

Key Contributors 

Establishing an athletic program not 
only took personnel, it took resources. 
And several individuals paved the way 
with their time, talents and treasure. 
The embodiment of those benefactors 
was Raiford G. Trask, Jr., an ultra-suc- 
cessful farmer who went out of his way 
to assist Brooks. 

"Raiford helped us with a lot of things," 
Brooks emphasized, especially with con- 
struction of the baseball facility. "When 
we moved to South College Road, the 
college had three buildings, and the 
maintenance shack wasn't much bigger 
than my garage. About the only thing 
they had in there was a half-dozen shov- 
els and a half-dozen hoes. 

" He was very interested in our school. With- 
out his help, it might not have been done." 

Brooks also said then-Reigel Paper Com- 
pany, now International Paper, contrib- 
uted bulldozers and graders to the cause. 
When Brooks approached Burt Voight, 
head of the company's Woodlands divi- 
sion, he was more than willing to help. 
Gene Dew of Dew Oil Company, mean- 
while, sent his trucks over each morning 
to fuel the big earth movers. 

"The field was a cypress swamp. We 
just kept plugging along, and I was 
able to borrow some surveying equip- 
ment. I had worked with an engineer- 
ing company and knew enough to set 
my grade stakes. We saved a lot of 
money that way." 

The Future 

Miller believes the future is bright for 
the Seahawks because the school con- 
tinues to emerge. At the same time, how- 
ever, that growth often generates 
problems. 

"We've got to get into a true tiering situ- 



ation," he said. "There's no way we can 
fund 19 sports at a level where we can 
expect to have championships in every 
sport. As in academics, you're known 
for certain things. We need to single out 
some programs and hang our badge on 
them. We have to pick about three men's 
and three women's sports and try to fund 
them at a level where they at least have a 
chance to compete for a championship." 

To do that, Miller says, the Seahawks 
need stronger backing. With a relatively 
young alumni base, the program faces 
an uphill battle. 

"There are two areas we need to concen- 
trate on. First of all, we have to do a 
much better job in fund raising. Sec- 
ondly, we have to sell more tickets. These 
two areas will increase our budget." 

Dr. Leutze succeeded Dr. William H. 
Wagoner seven years ago and has been 
proactive in athletics. A former football 
player at Syracuse, he takes an active 
role in the direction of the program. 

"I am very supportive ofthe athletic pro- 
gram because I believe it is a balanced 
program. It keeps very clearly, in per- 
spective, the role of athletics and the 
student-athlete concept," Dr. Leutze 
said. "I'm proud of our student-athlete 
graduation rate. I'm proud of the fact 
that our athletes stay on campus and go 
on to graduate school and stay as assis- 
tant coaches. I think we have a healthy 
approach to athletics." 

What does the future hold for the ath- 
letic program? 

"If our projections are right, the univer- 
sity is going to grow about 3,500 stu- 
dents in the next five to seven years," Dr. 
Leutze said. "That will make a lot of dif- 
ference in our athletic programs. There 
may be some changes in our sports 
lineup, but I'm not looking for football. 
Football is so expensive and requires a 
tremendous infrastructure that I can't 
see us making that investment. 

"What I would like to see is for us to 
develop several sports in which we are 
regular contenders for the top spot, and 
we are regularly sending athletes to the 
NCAA's."

Spring/Summer 1998 



Seahawks soar 
to new heights 



By Phillip Brown 

The Seahawk men's basketball program soared to new 
heights this season culminating in a first-ever post-season 
berth in the Chase National Invitational Tournament. 

A season that began with a loss to Clemson University of the 
Atlantic Coast Conference would rise to historic propor- 
tions. The Seahawks would win 20 games for the first time 
in the 47-year history of the program. This was indeed a 
record-setting season. 

In addition to a 20-win season, the Seahawks were unde- 
feated on their home court. Trask Coliseum, winning nine 
games. A tenacious defense enabled the team to hold eight 
home opponents to 63 points or less. The Seahawks have 
used the friendly confines of Trask Coliseum to build the 
12th longest home winning streak in NCAA Division I bas- 
ketball. Spanning from last season, the Seahawks have won 
16 straight home contests. Awesome home play did not go 
unnoticed to Seahawk fans, who helped establish a new 
record for average attendance at 4,739. On their way to 20 
wins, the Seahawks enjoyed a record nine-game consecu- 
tive win streak. 

Thirteen of the 20 wins came in Colonial Athletic Associa- 
tion play. Can you say school record? The successful league 
play earned the Seahawks a share of the regular season con- 
ference title, reducing the sting of a preseason CAA coaches' 
poll that picked the Seahawks to finish fifth in the confer- 
ence. 

Head Coach Jerry Wainwright has set a new standard for 
the Seahawk men's basketball program. In his fourth year, 
Wainwright's teams have amassed 45 CAA victories. His 
predecessors Kevin Eastman and Robert McPherson won 
29 and 34, respectively, during their four-year tenures as 
the Seahawks head coach. Wainwright was runner-up for 
the CAA Coach of the Year: the same award he won for the 
1996-97 season. 

While the team excelled, outstanding individual perfor- 
mances were instrumental in the team's success. Senior 
guard Mark Byington of Salem, Va., became the 12th player 
in UNCW history to score 1,000 points. He reached the mile- 
stone February 14 against William and Mary. Having ap- 
peared in 1 13 games during four years, his 1,070 points 
makes him UNCW's ninth all-time leading scorer. 

One reason for Byington's scoring success was his blazing 
three-point goals. After making a pair of three-pointers 
against Coastal Carolina University on Dec. 22, Byington 
passed Brannon Lancaster (1988-91) to become UNCW's 
all-time leading three-point shooter. At season's end 




UNCWjunior Billy Donlon, center, battles for the basketball with Wake Forest 
freshman Nikki Arinze, left, in the Seahawks' first-round NIT basketball game 
with the Deacons in Winston-Salem March 12. UNCW's Oleg Kojenets, right, 
gives a helping hand. The Seahawks lost to the Deacons, 56-52. 

Byington had completed 241 of 640 three-point attempts 
during his four years. For his career that translates to a 
37- percent success rate. But during the 1997-98 season 
Byington was flying high from behind the arc. Seventy 
percent of his field goals were three-point shots. 
Byington wasn't alone this season with hitting trifectas. 
Teammates Stan Simmons and Billy Donlon, both jun- 
iors, moved to fourth and sixth, respectively, on the list. 
Simmons has hit 124 of his 317 attempts, and Donlon 
connected for 78 of 214. 

Simmons also made a strong showing during the CAA tour- 
nament in Richmond. A product of Winder, Ga., Stan "Sling- 
shot" Simmons was named to the CAA's all-tournament 
team after scoring 56 points and collecting nine rebounds in 
three games at Richmond Coliseum. Simmons was also 
named a member of the first-team AU-CAA. Teammate Mark 
Byington was selected for the CAA All-Conference second 
team and the All-Defensive and All-Academic squads. 

Following the loss in the finals of the CAA tournament to 
the University of Richmond, the Seahawks and their sup- 
porters waited anxiously for news of post-season play. The 
team's reward for its record-setting season was an NIT bid 
and first-round game against the ACC's Wake Forest Uni- 
versity. While the team suffered a disappointing 56-52 loss, 
expectations are already high for next season with the 
Seahawks' returning 11 players.

Road from Wilmington College 
leads to county government 



By Susan Carney '97 

Wilmington native, Robert "Bobby" Greer '66, was not quite 
sure where the road might lead him when he headed off to 
Wilmington College, now the University of North Carolina 
at Wilmington. At the time, the school was mostly a campus 
of woods with iust three buildings on it. 

"My classmates from New Hanover High School scattered in 
many different directions, but a group of us stayed here to 
attend the local college." Greer's 1966 graduating class was 
the second baccalaureate, four-year degree class after the 
campus moved to its present location on College Road. 

"The class was so small that we all knew each other and re- 
mained friends for a long time," he said. "During our days at 
(Wilmington College) my friends and I were busy in our ef- 
forts to bring fraternity life to the campus including the one 
I joined, Sigma Phi Kappa. 

"I registered for pre-engineering classes and then changed 
to business management on the advice of my fellow life- 
guard buddies," he said. "The thought of entering politics 
never entered my mind. 

"Additionally, I have always loved the water and boating so I 
enjoyed being the head lifeguard at Wrightsville Beach also 
during that time. Later, it led me to become an active and 
reservist member of the Coast Guard," he said. 

Greer's degree in business management became an asset to 
him in 1966 when he joined Sellers and Greer, a tire and 
auto parts/service company founded by his father, the late 
Gardner D. Greer. The original business was on North Third 
Street with a branch at 2015 Oleander Drive. Greer was 
president from 1973 until April 1997 when the company was 
sold. It is now known as Palmetto Tire Service. 

It was only after Jack Dolan died in 1988, leaving a vacant 
position on the New Hanover County Board of Commis- 
sioners, that Albert Corbett '65 of Corbett Package Company 
was able to persuade Greer to accept a nomination for an 
appointment to fill the seat. 

"I knew Bobby from the time we were teenagers," said 
Corbett. "We were not only classmates but also pioneers to- 
gether with faculty and community supporters of the newly 
relocated Wilmington College which was renamed Univer- 
sity of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1969. Our college 
days together were an important time in our lives." 

Corbett explained that in the early days, students and the 
university felt an especially strong mutual bond. Students 
expected to obtain the best education from the most quali- 
fied professors, and in turn the college looked to them to go

facilities created during his tenure as county commissioner, the result of

out after graduation and become successful leaders in the 
community, a benefit to the school as a result. 

"At the time, recruiting faculty, especially in the business 
school, was not as easy as it is today. We were most fortu- 
nate to gain insights from the dean of the business school at 
the time, Dr. E. M. West, who was a retired Sears executive. 
The valuable training he gave us was backed by years of ac- 
tual business experience," said Corbett. 

"UNCW definitely helped mold Greer's character into the 
community leader, businessman, husband, father and all- 
round good guy he is today," Corbett said. "He enjoys the 
respect of his peers, whether Republican or Democrat, black 
or white. I have never heard anyone have disparaging words 
to say about him. 

"From experiences I shared with Greer over the years, I 
know him to be an honest individual who deals well with

Wise House gets facelift 



After years of neglect, the exterior of 
Wise Alumni House is getting a much 
deserved facelift. 

Since December work crews have 
been busy making repairs. Damaged 
slate shingles on the roof have been 
replaced. The wood siding has been 
scraped and is being repainted a 
bright white. Unfortunately, the work 
revealed extensive damage to the 
port cochere, and the columns are 
being replaced. Also, some scroll 
capitals on the large columns at the 
front of the house are being rebuilt. 

Inside Wise House, a high quality 
sound system has been installed. It 
will include interior and exterior 
speakers which are located in the 
front yard and sunken garden areas. 

Chandeliers have been hung in the 
grand room and the wall sconces, 
previously the only source of lighting 
in the room, have been moved so 
they are in the center of each wall. 
All lighting fixtures which were just 
exposed bulbs, such as those in the 



public restrooms, have been re- 
placed. New lights and mirrors were 
installed in the upstairs bathrooms. 

In the kitchen, the stained carpet 
has been replaced with tile floor- 
ing, which complements the en- 
closed sunporch. 

New window treatments will accent 
the hand-painted hunt scene wallpa- 
per in the dining room. In the grand 
room, plantation shutters will be in- 
stalled and draperies moved there 
from Miss Jessie's upstairs bedroom. 




Because of extensive damage to the port cochere, 
the columns must be replaced. 



More events 
planned for

lenges and opportunities for women 
in leadership.

When you're on the road this spring, 
keep your eye out for the newest look 
in North Carolina license plates - the 
UNCW Seahawk. 

The promotional effort by the UNCW 
Alumni Association to get the colle- 
giate license plates on the road during 
the university's 50th anniversary has 
paid off. 

"We are indebted to those faithful 
alumni and friends who supported the 
program in its early stages and to 
those who helped us get over the top 
these last few months," said Patricia 
Corcoran '72, alumni relations direc- 
tor. A minimum of 300 plates had to be 
ordered before the N.C. Department of 
Motor Vehicles could begin manufac- 
turing them. 

Seahawk license plates are $25 in addi- 
tion to the regular motor vehicle regis- 
tration fee. The UNCW Alumni 
Association receives $15 from every 
plate application to fund its scholar-

Spring/Summer 1998 



Anniversary has been golden 



Our 50th anniversary year has been full of 
wonderful happenings. Golden tours in 
Charlotte, Jacksonville and Richmond have 
bonded our alumni and shown great sup- 
port fromourgrowingchapters. The alumni 
participation at our socials has been the 
greatest ever. The CAA tournament week- 
end in Richmond highlighted the UNCW 
alumni pride for our fantastic basketball 
players and coaches. And finally, this year 
we will see our UNCW license tags on the 
highways of North Carolina. WE have truly 
had a glorious golden anniversary year. 

None of this could have happened without 
alumni like you and the dedicated alumni 
board working behind the scenes all the 






time. I am extremely 
proud of our alumni 
board. These volunteers 
give so much of their time 
and resources to make 
your alumni association 
one of the very best. I 
wish to publicly thank 
them for their hard work this year. 



Blizzard '83, '97 



As we look forward to our next 50 years, we 
have many challenges and opportunities to 
do wonderful things for our university. I ask 
that each of you in your own way help us 
make UNCW a golden university.

Changes underway at Wise House, 
new alumni program is explored 



I hope you have been able to see our facelift 
in progress at Wise Alumni House. If not, 
please take note 1 Almost daily there are new 
improvements being made of which we are 
extremely proud. New roof, replaced and 
repaired columns, woodwork, primer and 
paint, sound system, chandeliers, mirrors, 
draperies, shutters and more are a part of 
Miss Jessie's mega house makeover. 

On the second floor of our alumni house, 
where our alumni operations take place, 
research, innovation and collaboration is 
going on. We are studying and packaging 
for our alumni a new program - our mem- 
bership dues program. While still in the in- 
fancy stages, let me define the need for such 
a program. 

The UNCW Alumni Association wants to 
unite and reunite alumni to UNCW with the 
primary purpose of raising support for the 
institution. Throughout the nation, mem- 
bership dues programs signify level of inter- 
est and commitment to the institution. This 
commitment equates into volunteer ser- 
vice, raised level of giving to pet projects and 
participation in university-sponsored pro- 
grams. Alumni who are more informed and

involved statistically give 
greater university financial 
support. 

Our goal is to increase rev- 
enue to the association 
while enabling our UNCW 
Alumni Association to ex- 
pand programs and ser- 
vices to our alumni base. We face 
dwindling state dollars but have an op- 
portunity to meet this challenge with a 
proven solution. Given time, a member- 
ship dues program, along with university 
support and alumni and friends contribu- 
tions, will enable us to better serve you. 
More details are to come. Here's to this 
new direction as it gently unfolds.

AAGA 

AAGA thanks all alumni and 
friends who made Homecoming 
'98 so successful. A step show 
sponsored by the UNCW Associa- 
tion for Campus Entertainment 
and an alumni pick-up basket- 
ball game were two of the high- 
lights for AAGA. "I had a great 
weekend seeing old friends and 
making new ones," said Lanette 
Bethea '94. "We are already 
planning next year's homecom- 
ing celebrating our 10th anni- 
versary," said Tim Kornegay '89, 
AAGA president. "We want to 
encourage all UNCW minority 
alumni to get involved in AAGA 
and help us make it a very spe- 
cial event." 

Cape Fear 

As part of Homecoming '98, the 
chapter cosponsored the post- 
game social. More than 200 
UNCW alumni and fans gathered 
in the Hawk's Nest to celebrate 
the last-second win over Ameri- 
can University. During the fes- 
tive event, chapter officers pre- 
sented a $2,500 check to the 
Communication Studies Chapter 
for its scholarship endowment. 
"What better way for us to sup- 
port UNCW - giving money to 
homecoming for the alumni cel- 
ebration and giving money to 
scholarship - for the advance- 
ment of education," said Dru 
Farrar '73, chapter president. 

Charlotte 

Close to 30 alumni from the 
Charlotte area played pool. 



watched sports and enjoyed 
pizza and fellowship at Picasso's 
Sports Cafe in January. Ideas for 
future events include a pig 
pickin', a tailgate party at the 
Knights' game or chartering a 
bus for a day at the beach. The 
planning committee - Janet 
Bryant '97, Chris Cauley '92, Eric 
Franze '92, Deborah Hunter '78, 
J.T. Smith '92 and Wayne '75 and 
Judy '78 Tharp - organized the 
event. They deserve a special 
thank you for their hard work. If 
you live in the Charlotte area 
and would like to attend future 
events, please call Deborah 
Hunter at 704-553-9304 or the 
Tharps at 704-849-26638. 

Communication Studies 

The chapter has been busy rais- 
ing money to endow the Betty 
Jo Welch-Communication Studies 
Alumni Scholarship for a deserv- 
ing communication studies stu- 
dent. During homecoming fes- 
tivities, the Cape Fear Chapter 
presented the Communication 
Studies Chapter with a check for 
$2,500 for the endowment. "In 
less than a year, we have raised 
approximately $11,500 toward 
our $25,000 goal for endowing a 
scholarship for the Communica- 
tion Studies Department," Tom 
Lamont '80, scholarship commit- 
tee chair, said. "But we need the 
support of all of our alumni to 
make this a reality." Please call 
Lamont at 392-3033, Mary Duke

Spring/Summer 1998 



UNCW Magazine 1 7 



uncw celebrates 50 years of excel- 
lence, and i am a proud graduate, class 
of 1950. My class, 1948-50, was the 
first to attend day classes in the isaac 
Bear Building. 

Twenty-five of us graduated. At least three of 
us are engineers, one teacher, one attorney, 
one minister and a journalist. I have lost track 
of the rest and would be interested in any in- 
formation you have. 

On the 27th of December, the UNCW basketball 
team played the University of Maryland at Col- 
lege Park. Carolyn and I are life members of 
the Terrapin Club and attended the game, but I 
wore Seahawk colors for this one. Wilmington, 
playing without its star , did not show well, 
but I was the proudest of 11,000 fans. This 
was a long way from the Isaac Bear Gym. 

I was particularly interested in Oleg Kojenets, 
a player for UNCW with whom my brother, Ber- 
nard, has become acguainted. Ironically, Oleg 
is from Minsk, Belarus, my father's hometown. 
I am enclosing a photo of Oleg and me. By the 
way, I am still close to six feet tall. 

My best to friends . . . and everyone at UNCW. 
May you continue to celebrate excellence in 
the years to come.

people. He is truly a man of 
vision able to direct the com- 
munity toward what we want 
to see happen in the next 10 
to 15 years." 

Greer enjoyed the challenges 
of county business from his 
first encounter with it, and 
he says that he learned im- 
mediately that growth and 
the pains associated with it is 
the name of the game in New 
Hanover County.

"We cannot stop it, and in fact it is the best scenario we can 
have if it is controlled well and decisions that are made are 
the best ones for all concerned," he said. "Some fields and 
stands of pines must be sacrificed, which is very difficult for 
people to understand and seems harsh on the environment, 
but with responsible decisions we will end up with the most 
desirable of possible results." 

Greer is forthright in his belief that citizens must be prepared 
to live with the results of what is created in terms of zoning 
and other planning decisions. "The Wilmington area is be- 
coming so crowded, a fact that many folks are unhappy 
about, that we must strive together, no matter our party affili- 
ation to do the best with our circumstances," he said. 

As an elected official preparing to begin his third campaign 
for office, Greer sees his constituents as one of two types. 
There are those who believe that since they voted him into 
office he should vote as they demand. On the other hand 
there are those who put him into the office with the expecta- 
tion that he will know the issues, represent them well, and do 
the right thing when it is time to make the decisions. 

"These are the people I hold myself accountable to," he said. 

Commissioner Greer is first vice president of the North Caro- 
lina Association of County Commissioners and is preparing to 
become president of the board this summer. He has served as 
president of the Wilmington Rotary Club and the U.S. Navy 
League, Wilmington Council. He also is past chairman of the 
Salvation Army Board and former appointee of the Governor's 
Cape Fear River Navigation and Pilotage Commission. 

In addition, he serves as the appointed representative of the 
New Hanover County Board of Commissioners on various 
committees such as the Greater Wilmington Chamber of 
Commerce, Joint Urban Planning and Growth Ad Hoc Com- 
mittee and the New Hanover County Parks and Recreation 
Advisory Board, along with others. 

He has been married to the former Lou McAulay of Clarkton 
since 1967 and is the father of two daughters: Ashley McAlpin 
of Wilmington and Ellen Greer of Raleigh. 

Susan Carney holds a baclielor's degree in communication stud- 
ies and works part-time in UNCW University Relations.

No. 9 in the South 



Latest U.S. News report 
gives UNCW high ratings 



UNCW received national recog- 
nition this fall as it was ranked 
one of the top 10 public universi- 
ties in the South by U.S. News 
and World Report. 

In the magazine's 12th annual 
"America's Best Colleges" guide- 
book, UNCW is ranked ninth 
among top regional public 
schools in the South. In addition, 
UNCW received top rankings for 
"best college value" and lowest 
student debt load. 

U.S. News classifies regional uni- 
versities as those offering a wide 
selection of undergraduate pro- 
grams and master's degrees, but 
few, if any doctoral programs. In 
determining its rankings, U.S. 
News uses several indicators to 
measure academic quality: aca- 
demic reputation, retention of 

Fall enrollment rises 

With applications for admission 
up more than 5 percent over last 
year, UNCW welcomed its largest 
freshman class ever this fall. 

Of the more than 7,000 students 
who applied, 1 ,650 were enrolled 
as freshmen. In addition, the uni- 
versity welcomed 900 new trans- 
fer students and 250 new graduate 
students. This brings the total 
university enrollment to about 
9,550. 

The academic quality of students 
enrolling at UNCW also rose this 
year. The average SAT score was 
1,094, and the average GPA was 
3.47. 

"It is noteworthy that despite the 
university's accommodation of a 
freshman class that will be almost 
20 percent larger than last year's, 
the indicators mentioned above 
are as high as they were a year 
ago," said Bob Fry, director of in- 
stitutional research. 



students, faculty resources, stu- 
dent selectivity, financial re- 
sources and alumni giving. 

UNCW is ranked eighth among 
Southern regional universities in 
the U.S.News list of "best college 
values among regional universi- 
ties." U.S. News measures value 
by relating a school's quality 
ranking with the net cost to a stu- 
dent who receives the average 
level of financial aid. The rankings 
were devised to provide a realis- 
tic measure of where students can 
get the best education for their 
money. The rankings related the 
cost of attending an institution 
to its quality. 

In addition, UNCW's 1997 gradu- 
ates carried the third lightest av- 
erage debt load among the 
graduates of Southern regional 
universities. While 64 percent of 
the graduates left in debt, the 
amount averaged just $4,129. 




Dr. James McGowan, center, is recognized by Chancellor James Leutze and 
Provost Marvin Moss at convocation. He received a Distinguished Teaching

Science Research at Myrtle Grove, which is scheduled for completion in 
summer 1999. Ground was broken for the student recreation center in May, 
and construction is now underway. That 64,000-square-foot building near 
Wagoner Hall should be complete in time for the start of classes in fall 
1999. An $8.4 million classroom building, to be located near Morton Hall, 
is in the design stage and should be built by April 2000.

higher education through dedi- 
cation and service to students. 

The Chancellor's Teaching Excel-

Changing faces 



Provost plans return 
to teaching in 1999 



An individual who has been in- 
strumental in the growth and in- 
creased recognition of UNCW's 
academic programs will return 
to teaching after seven years at 
UNCW. 

Dr. Marvin K. Moss, provost and 
vice chancellor for academic af- 
fairs, announced his intention to 
resign from his position at the 
end of the academic year, effec- 
tive July 1, 1999. Under Dr. Moss' 
leadership UNCW implemented 
numerous undergraduate and 
graduate programs, 33 minors 
and UNCW's first terminal de- 
gree program. In addition, both 
studentpopulationsand student 
retention rates increased dra- 
matically to the point where 
UNCW is now one of the top four 
in the UNC system. To grow 
UNCW's academic programs, Dr. 
Moss worked with Chancellor 
James R. Leutze to secure equity 
funding for UNC system institu- 
tions which brought an addi- 
tional $2.6 million to UNCW. 

Among other personnel changes, 
W. Patton McDowell IV, Seahawk 
Club director, was named interim 
vice chancellor for university ad- 
vancement, replacing Kevin C. 
Jacques who resigned in June. 
McDowell led a successful Sea- 
hawk Club campaign, raising 
membership from 530 to 907 and 
contributions from $289,000 to 
$550,000. He also launched 
Project 2000 to raise nearly $5 
million for athletic facilities. 

Dr. Daniel G. Baden was ap- 
pointed director of the UNCW 
Center for Marine Science Re- 
search. He was director and prin- 
cipal investigator of the National 
Institute of Environmental Health 
Sciences Marine and Freshwater 
Biomedical Sciences Center at the 
University of Miami and past chair 
of the Division of Marine Biology 
and Fisheries at the Rosenstiel 
School of Marine and Atmo- 
spheric Science at the University 



of Miami. His wife, Dr. Alina M. 
Szmant, was appointed professor 
of biological sciences. She first 
identified the lunar and tempera- 
ture keys that trigger coral spawn- 
ing and has worked closely with 
UNCW's National Undersea Re- 
search Center (NURC) program 
in Florida in carrying out her coral 
reef research. 

Dr. Steven Miller is the new direc- 
tor for UNCW/NURC. Miller was 
associate director of the center's 
Florida program, where he 
worked extensively wiihAquarius, 
the world's only underwater re- 
search laboratory. Aquarius is ad- 
ministered by UNCW/ NURC and 
the National Oceanic and Atmo- 
spheric Administration. 

Dr. L. Scott Quackenbush re- 
placed Dr. Ron Sizemore as chair 
of the Department of Biological 
Sciences, a position he previ- 
ously held at Florida Interna- 
tional University. 

Award-winning independent 
filmmaker Ellen Walters of 
Laurinburg is UNCW's first film 
studies coordinator. New this fall, 
the film studies minor is a 
multidisciplinary program that 
draws from courses in history, 
communication studies, English 
and theatre. 

New master's 
degree offered 

This fall UNCW initiated its new- 
est master's degree program, 
marine science. 

The interdisciplinary program 
applies knowledge of biological, 
chemical, physical and geologi- 
cal sciences, plus mathematics 
and computer science, to the 
study of marine systems. It will 
allow expansion of UNCW's cur- 
rent studies of the environmen- 
tal and economic challenges 
brought on by the population 
growth in coastal counties. 




Dr. James Leutze kayaks on the 
Neuse River. 

Neuse River is focus 
of new documentary 

Once again, UNCW and N.C. 
State University are teaming up 
to produce a television docu- 
mentary focusing on North 
Carolina waterways, this time 
the Neuse River. This is the 
university's third in a series of 
award-winning documentaries. 

Titled " River of Peace: Reclaiming 
the Neuse, " the documentary will 
drawpublic attention to die plight 
of the Neuse exactly when it can 
do the most good: a state basin- 
wide management plan has been 
adopted and lively debate on its 
application has begun. Like pre- 
vious UNCW documentaries, it 
will emphasize the positive work 
that is being done through pub- 
lic-private partnerships to clean 
up the basin, to reclaim an impor- 
tant public trust and to inspire 
hope that smart science and in- 
formed citizen action can make a 
difference for the better. 

UNCW Chancellor James R. 
Leutze hosts the one-hour docu- 
mentary that is expected to air in 
spring 1999 on UNC-TV. He leads 
viewers do wn the Neuse by kayak 
and research vessel, interviewing 
scientists, fishermen, environ- 
mentalists, hog farmers, industry 
representatives, local government 
leaders and residents trying to put 
into perspective their competing 
claims about what ails the Neuse 
and how to fix it. 

An interdisciplinary education 
guide and Web site are being de- 
veloped as companions to the 
documentary. 



Hormones, gender & sex 

Charting the new 
ABC's of learning 

How do hormones affect cognitive 
learning? 

This question has been a hot topic 
in UNCW's Psychology Department 
recently, and Dr. Bill Overman is 
searching for answers. Overman 
received a $450,000 grant from 
the National Institute of Child 
Health and Human Development to 
aid in his research on the effects 
of hormones on cognition during 
key stages of human development. 
The grant will be dispersed over a 
three-year period; however. Over- 
man believes research in this area 
may never be complete. He has 
been studying this field for 10 
years and feels that psychologists 
have yet to discover the true 
myriad of information in this 
field. 

The goal of Overman's research is 
"to investigate the role of hor- 
mones on thinking across the life 
span." The subjects of his research 
are children ages one to four; 
adolescents in seventh, eighth 
and ninth grades; college students 
18 to 23 (the prime of hormonal 
activity) and older men and 
women. 

In his research, Overman hopes to 
learn more about how the brain 
works as related to gender and 
sex. Basically, he will examine 
how naturally occurring hormonal 
events interact with socialization 
and biology to affect cognitive 
behavior. Through his research, 
teachers may be better equipped 
to identify different styles of 
thinking and respond accordingly. 

Overman attributes his success to 
the many research students who 
have assisted him in this endeavor 
over the years. This project "is a 
huge team effort," he said, which 
includes year-round testing of 
subjects. 

Overman attended Wake Forest 
University and completed graduate 
and doctoral degrees at Pennsyl- 
vania State University. His post- 
doctoral research was conducted 
at the University of Rochester in 
New York. He joined UNCW's fac- 
ulty in 1978, and this fall he was 
given UNCW's Award for Faculty 
Scholarship.

UNCW setting 
for Dawson's 
Creek filming 

You can read about it in maga- 
zines, watch promos for it on tele- 
vision and see it filmed at UNCW. 

The popular coming-of-age televi- 
sion series Dawson 's Creekis set in 
a Boston suburb, but the filming is 
done at EUE/ Screen Gems Studios 
and at locations around Wilming- 
ton including the UNCW campus. 

Many of the extras used in the film- 
ing are UNCW students, said Sh- 
annon DeAntonio, who handles 
the show's extras casting for 
Fincannan and Associates. Like 
Shannon, a former UNCW com- 
munication studies intern who left 
school to work full-time in the busi- 
ness, other students are using the 
show as an opportunity, not only 
to earn some extra cash ($6 an hour) 
but to learn more about television 
show production. 

Ellen Walters, UNCW film studies 
coordinator, said there are three 
students working as interns with 
the show this fall: Michael Hux of 




Live at UNCW . . . James Van Der 
Beek (above), Joshua Jackson 
(top right) and Katie Holmes

Rocky Mount, Michael Hoffman 
and Katie Seitz of Sanford. 

Working in the lighting and grip 
department Hux has observed 
that beingonthe set is not as glam- 
orous as he thought it would be. 
"It is hard work and long hours," 
he said, but "cool to be able to 



watch the show at home and rec- 
ognize things from the set." Seitz 
says her job answering phones 
and filing in the production office 
is "nothing too exciting," but she 
expects to be moving on to the art 
department before her internship 
ends in December. 




The first to be inducted in UNCW's Athletic Halt of Fame were Janet Johnson '84, who achieved Alt-American status 
as a swimmer 13 times during her four-year career with the Seahawks in the early 1980s; Sam O'Leary '84, UNCW's

Athletes are first 

Continuing a trend of producing 
quality student-athletes, UNCW 
this year again paced the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina system 
in graduation rates for student- 
athletes. 

In the annual graduation rates 
report released by the UNC Board 
of Governors, UNCW student-ath- 
letes posted a graduation rate of 
68.8 percent for freshmen enter- 
ing school in 1992. That put the 
Seahawks ahead of the other 14 
institutions reporting and main- 
tains UNC Wilmington's excellent 
track record in the report. 

In the last 10 years, UNCW has 
placed first three times, second 
six times and third once. 

Second CAA title 

UNCW's men successfully de- 
fended their conference title at 
the 1998 Colonial Athletic Asso- 
ciation Track and Field Champi- 
onships. They captured five indi- 
vidual titles to outdistance 
William and Mary by a tally of 
151.5 to 124. 

Junior Bryant Lowe, who was 
named the Athlete of the Meet, 
paced the Seahawks with two 
first-place finishes in the long 
jump (22-11) and javelin (178- 
5). Lowe also finished second in 
the high jump (6-3 1/2), third in 
the triple jump (48-8 1/2) and 
fourth in the discus (131-2). 
Michael McDuffie outleaped the 
field in the triple jump (49-2 1/ 
2) to earn the title for the third 
consecutive year. Seahawk 
throwers Donnie Watkins and 
Steven Sarigiannis won the shot 
put (51-7 3/4) and discus (157- 
10), respectively. For Sarigiannis 
it was his second consecutive 
CAA shot put championship.

Wainwrighf s outlook lofty for 98-99 season 



Wain wright is setting his sights high 

as the UNCW Seahawks welcome 
back a veteran cast for the 1998-99 
campaign. 

"We always approach each year 
with three goals," said Wainwright, 
who has a 65-52 (.556) overall 
record in four seasons with the Sea- 
hawks. He already is the second 
winningest active coach in theCAA 
witha.662winningpercentage(47- 
24) in league games. 
"One is to win the regular season 
CAA tide. Two is to win the CAA 
tournament championship. And 
three is to advance more than one 
round in the NCAAs. I think the 
kids whet their appetites for post- 
season play last year. The NIT was 
a great experience, but it's not like 
going to the NCAAs. That's our ul- 
timate goal." 

Recapturing the spirit and success 
of last season will be a challenge. 



This year's club may not win every 
contest, but it certainly should 
claim a lion's share. 
"We returna veteran team, but we'll 
still probably be picked third or 
fourth in the league," Wainwright 
said. "We still have a lot to prove, 
but we've always internalized pres- 
sure. I think our non-conference 
schedule could ultimately turn out 
to be the most difficult we've 
played." 

The heart of the 1998-99 edition 
lies on the perimeter, where heady 
point guard Billy Donlon and 
skywalker Stan Simmons patrol. 
However, the Seahawks will miss 
the long-range accuracy of Mark 
Byington, who graduated with 
nearly every three-point field goal 
record in the annals. Wainwright 
hopes the frontcourt will continue 
to improve and develop, giving the 
team versatility. Senior Oleg

leadership 
r UNCW, 
lVe leaders 



By Joy Horrell 

"Leadership is the ability to 
influence others in order to 
accomplish a goal," said Brunson. 
In addition, she feels that 
leadership should not only be 
practiced outwardly. 

"Another important aspect of 
leadership is personal," she said. 
"This means having the ability to 
direct, take responsibility for and 
implement change within oneself. 
An effective leader must have a 
sense of personal direction." 



In the early 80's, Dr. William A. Bryan, 
former vice chancellor for student af- 
fairs, observed a national movement to- 
ward leadership development on 
college campuses. In response, he es- 
tablished a task force comprised of stu- 
dents, faculty and staff in 1986. Its sole 
purpose was to advocate a means of 
leadership training for students, faculty 
and staff at UNCW. Because of the col- 
laboration between then Chancellor 
William Wagoner and the task force, a 
leadership director's position in the 
University Union was established in the 
fall of 1988 and assumed by Cathy Bir- 
mingham. It gave birth to a program 
that promotes "self-awareness, leader- 
ship development, organizational excel- 
lence, appreciation of diversity and 
recognition that global issues and con- 
cerns are part of a dynamic, interrelated 
system." This program became known 
as the Leadership Center. 



Volunteer work is an active component 
of the Leadership Center and is essen- 
tial in the development of a leader. 

"Volunteerism was a part of the na- 
tional collegiate leadership move- 
ment," Dr. Bryan said. "Volunteerism 
grows out of leadership." 

The Leadership Center fields several 
volunteer programs and opportunities. 
Among these are service trips such as 
the Break Away Program and Global 
Volunteers, one-time volunteer oppor- 
tunities held several times a month 
known as Seahawk Surges, on-going 
volunteer placements that work with 
more than 100 nonprofit agencies 
related to youth, adult and health 
services as well as basic needs, a 
volunteer opportunity intended for 
freshmen and transfer students only 
called FIRSTSERV, and class-related 
services.

Jennifer Hallman, a senior lead- 
ership studies minor at UNCW, 
has taken advantage of volun- 
teering opportunities, many of 
which are through her sorority, 
Alpha Gamma Delta. She has vol- 
unteered at Girls Inc., an after- 
school program that allows 
young women such as Hallman 
to mentor impressionable young 
girls. She also, as a project with 
her sorority, has helped raise 
money for juvenile diabetes and 
participated in Beach Sweep, a 



education, communication 
studies, management, philoso- 
phy and religion, political sci- 
ence, psychology, recreation 
and sociology. Joanne 
Nottingham of the Watson 
School of Education taught the 
first Leadership Studies course 
titled Contemporary Leadership 
Applications or LED 411. 

Hallman chose the minor be- 
cause she simply "enjoy(s) lead- 
ership." Having been in 
leadership positions in high 



me techniques that I use in cam- 
pus organization meetings." 

However, a prospective leader 
needs more than just academic 
training to be effective — cam- 
pus involvement is crucial. They 
go hand-in-hand. 

Elaine Duck, who received a 
bachelor of arts degree in com- 
munication studies in 1997 can 
attest to that. During her time at 
UNCW as a leadership minor, 
Duck's experience taught her to 



communication studies 

ive learned effective 

interpersonal skills 

people 



- 






program that helps clean up litter 
on the beach. 

Hallman can relate her volunteer 
experience to her leadership 
training. 

"I realized that it makes me feel 
good to help other people," said 
Hallman. "That has helped me de- 
velop as a leader." 

Out of the Leadership Center 
evolved UNCW's interdisciplinary 
leadership studies minor that al- 
lows future leaders to academi- 
cally prepare themselves for 
opportunities that lie ahead. Of- 
fered by the College of Arts and 
Sciences, this minor was incorpo- 
rated into the curriculum in 1995. 
The minor includes courses in 



school, such as class president 
and cheerleading captain, she 
was driven to continue her lead- 
ership experiences throughout 
her years in college. 

Hallman's primary focus in her 
leadership experience has been 
in Greek life. She has served as a 
personal development coordi- 
nator for Alpha Gamma Delta 
and director of Rho Chi, a group 
of rush counselors who help 
rushees find direction. 

"Combined with my major in 
communication studies, I have 
learned effective relational and 
interpersonal skills when deal- 
ing with people," said Hallman. 
"The leadership minor taught 



"be a leader instead of just learn- 
ing about being a leader." She is 
currently a project manager for 
DWJ Television, a broadcast public 
relations firm in Washington, DC. 

The leadership skills she ac- 
quired at UNCW have manifest 
themselves in her career. Duck 
participates in many aspects of 
the company including sales, ac- 
count management, production, 
distribution and placement while 
working directly for the senior 
vice president. 

"Since I was so involved in stu- 
dent activities at UNCW, the 
leadership minor helped me 
clarify my role as a student 
leader," said Duck.

Fall/Winter 1998 



"I learned the theories behind 
my experiences." 

Current students and alumni are 
very pleased with the minor. 

"I was lucky to be part of a pro- 
gram that gave students a chance 
to provide their input and ideas. 
Since I went through the first set 
of classes, we had the chance to 
mold the minor to our liking," 
said Duck. "The professors were 
very willing to listen and learn 
from the student leaders. It was 
much more of an interactive 
classroom than your regular lec- 
ture-type atmosphere and much 
more productive." 

Hallman shares Duck's senti- 
ments. She is "very happy with 
the minor and pleased with the 
classes and the professors who 
teach them." 

Linda Moore, University Union 
director at the time of the 1988 
establishment of the Leadership 
Center, is delighted with the 
progress of the center, of which 
the minor is an integral part. 

"The leadership studies minor is 
one of the most progressive offer- 
ings from the Leadership Center," 
said Moore. "It is very rare that a 
student can receive this kind of 
interdisciplinary training." 

Along with the students, faculty 
and staff who are involved in the 
leadership studies minor, Moore 
is pleased with the efforts of 
those in the community who 
were and are involved in estab- 
lishing and maintaining the cen- 
ter. Through the efforts of 
everyone involved, the Leader- 
ship Center receives advice, sup- 



port and direction from people 
not only directly involved with 
UNCW, but those in the commu- 
nity to ensure that its projects 
and services are responsive to 
the needs of the campus. In es- 
sence, it "was and remains a col- 
laborative effort," said Moore. 
Aside from teaching students the 
fundamentals of leadership, the 
minor has helped students de- 
velop as leaders inwardly, as 
emphasized by Dr. Brunson. 

"The leadership minor helped 
me pinpoint my leadership styles 
and capabilities," said Kristi 
Peacock, a junior leadership 
studies minor. "This allowed me 
to learn more about conflict 
management, group work and 
interpersonal relations." 



has the insight and the drive to 
impart her leadership skills to fu-

As for Jennifer Hallman, the lead- 
ership minor has helped her 
grow in a different way — she 
gained discernment. 

"The leadership minor has 
taught me when to step back and 
be a follower and when to take 
charge and be a leader," said 
Hallman. "Discernment is a very 
important aspect of leadership."

Preparing for a terrorist attack 

Malone develops training missions nationwide 



By Phillip Brown 

an earth-shattering explosion halts the seahawk world 
Games in Trask Coliseum. In the chaos, scores are injured 
trying to escape the burning and choking sensation of the 
chemical explosion detonated by unknown terrorists. flee- 
ing spectators are met by emergency personnel and loaded 
into waiting ambulances. 

Approximately 280 U.S. Marines and sailors comprising the 
Chemical and Biological Response Force (CBIRF) stationed 
at Camp Lejeune arrive. Trained to handle domestic terror- 
ism, the unit sets up decontamination tents. Working with 
local police, fire and rescue personnel, the unit inspects the 
coliseum, determines the chemical agent used in the explo- 
sion and coordinates the rescue and treatment of survivors. 

The entire process took about three hours, but the military 
drill, Exercise Southern Response, provided an excellent op- 
portunity for the two-year-old CBIRF unit to train in an ur- 
ban setting, said UNCW alumnus Maj. Michael V. Malone '82. 




Maj. Mike Malone '82 on the bank of the New River at Camp Lejeune. 



While this was only an exercise, how well the unit handles 
the pressure faced in a real-life situation depends upon Ma- 
lone, CBIRF's operations officer. It is his responsibility to 
develop CBIRF's doctrines and procedures for responding 
to threats of domestic terrorism. He also designs training 
missions, like Exercise Southern Response, to prepare the 
unit to deal with chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. 
In developing training scenarios, Malone has to consider 
the more than 40 military occupations represented by the 
CBIRF unit, which includes everything from heavy equip- 
ment operators and data processors to medical personnel 
and specialists in urban search and rescue. 

The UNCW exercise involved cooperation between the mili- 
tary, U.S. Public Health Service, Wilmington Fire Department, 
university police and staff and 65 high school "Summer Ven- 
tures" students portraying "victims" of a chemical attack. 

Malone said he hopes the exercise opens a door between 
Wilmington and Camp Lejeune. "As a UNCW graduate sta- 
tioned at Camp Lejeune, I've discovered the relationship be- 
tween Wilmington and the base is not the best in the world." 
While there are many reasons why the animosity exists, Mal- 
one said the exercise at UNCW "shows that the military does 
protect and serve the American citizen. 

"CBIRF is an organization that truly has a concern for Ameri- 
cans' health and well-being. Domestically, we're here to save 
American lives in the event of terrorist attack. The people of 
the United States and Wilmington need to be proud of what 
the Marines and sailors do at Camp Lejeune, where 30,000 
military personnel are deployed worldwide protecting Ameri- 
can interests." 

An increased need for domestic protection is evident. 

"Terrorism within the continental United States exists; look 
at incidents such as the bombing of the federal building in 
Oklahoma and the World Trade Center in New York," said 
Malone, who graduated from UNCW with a bachelor's de- 
gree in psychology. "The increased threat to U.S. citizens 
from a terrorist attack using a chemical, biological or nuclear 
weapon on American soil led to the creation of CBIRF." 

As operations officer, Malone is third in the unit's chain of com- 
mand. He was nominated for the job by Undersecretary of the 
Navy Richard Danzig, who spearheaded the drive to create a 
military unit responsible for dealing with domestic terrorism. 

Designed to respond to attacks throughout the United 
States, Malone said CBIRF's expertise in dealing with situa-

At UNCW golden anniversary gala in May, Dan Cameron and Robert Warwick, capital campaign co-chairs, 
presented Chancellor James R. Leutze with a symbolic check closing the university's first capital campaign. 

$25 million campaign completed 



The University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington marked the successful 
completion of its first major capital cam- 
paign drive of $25 million at the gala 
celebration in May which capped off its 
year-long 50th anniversary celebration. 

Capital campaign co-chairs Dan Cam- 
eron and Robert Warwick announced 
the campaign's completion and pre- 
sented a ceremonial check to UNCW 
Chancellor James R. Leutze. 

"This check fulfills our promise to you 
and the university," said Cameron. "Let 
it be the down payment on even greater 



things to come." In addition to the check, 
Warwick gave the chancellor a procla- 
mation listing more than 430 donors who 
pledged $5,000 or more to the campaign. 

As the university's first major capital 
campaign, it was launched in 1992 with 
a goal of raising $15 million. The UNCW 
Board of Trustees expanded that goal to 
$25 million in 1994. The campaign was 
designed to build the university's en- 
dowment to fund scholarships, profes- 
sorships and programs supporting 
UNCW' s educational and service mis- 
sion to the citizens of southeastern North 
Carolina. 



Donors respond to challenge 



Thanks to Mickey Corcoran '70 and the 
UNCW Golden Anniversary challenge he 
made to alumni, parents and friends, more 
than $50,000 in new contributions were 
made to the university's annual fund in 
1997-98. 

Corcoran, who is a member of the UNCW 
Board of Trustees, said when 10,000 new 
dollars were raised for UNCW, he would 
contribute an additional $10,000 to the 
university. 

In response, 1,071 individuals made their 



first gifts to UNCW, contributing nearly 
$40,000. There were 506 others who in- 
creased the amount of their donations 
made the previous year by more than 
$14,000. In all, 53,568 new challenge dol- 
lars were raised. 

Including the $10,000 from Mickey 
Corcoran, the total raised in the UNCW 
Golden Anniversaiy challenge was $63, 568. 

Thank to Mickey and all alumni, friends 
and parents who rose to his Golden Anni- 
versary challenge.

Generous donors have made it possible for the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina at Wilmington to establish 
five endowed faculty chairs through the Distin- 
guished Professors Endowment Trust Fund. 

These chairs allow the university to bring to campus 
respected and accomplished scholars who can enrich 
the academic program for both the faculty and stu- 
dents. Further, the high degree of visibility and 
healthy publicity that accompanies such individuals 
does much to enhance the university's reputation. 

The fund, established in 1985 by an act of the N. C. 
General Assembly, allows UNC General Administration 
to supplement individuals' contributions to create a 
$500,000 endowment for a distinguished professor- 
ship at each constituent institution of the University 
of North Carolina. Individuals contribute $333,000 
while the state provides an additional $167,000. 

Professors selected for this honor receive a salary 
supplement and funds to support his/her research 
and scholarship. 

Of UNCW's five endowed chairs, two in marine science 
are currently vacant. One was established by the fam- 
ily of C. D. Spangler, former president of the UNC 
System, and the C. D. Spangler Foundation and 
named for Frank H. Kenan. The second was created by 
and is named for Carl B. Brown of Wilmington, now 
deceased. 

Endowed by the Bruce B. Cameron, Jr. and Daniel D. 
Cameron families, the endowed chair in accountancy 
at the UNCW Cameron School of Business is held by 
Dr. Joanne Rockness. 

Rockness is director of the Master of Science in Ac- 
countancy Program but teaches at the undergraduate 
level as well. 

"The most important part of my job is 
the students," she said. "The students 
are our mission, but the chair has al- 
lowed me to become more involved in 
the North Carolina business community 
and more active in research." 

In 1997 she was named North Carolina 
Outstanding Accounting Educator by 
the N. C. Association of CPAs, which 
she also serves as a member of the 
board of directors. She assists in the 
continuing education of certified pub- 
lic accountants and does research on accounting edu- 
cation issues, business ethics and financial reporting. 

Service is also important to Rockness who is chair- 
man of the UNCW Athletics Council and a member of 
University Advancement Committee. She also takes 
time to sail on the 40-foot Southern Pass with her 
husband. Dr. Howard Rockness, dean of the Cameron 
School of Business, and their dog Sam.

A sociologist in the Watson School of Education, Mar- 
tin Kozloff says that as the Donald R. Watson Distin- 
guished Professor in Education he is "trying to inject 
sociological theories, questions and methods of so- 
ciological research into our larger curriculum. 

"I want our special education students 
to understand that when you work 
with children with disabilities you are 
not merely trying to change their be- 
havior, you are trying to change their 
I social position and identity. 
' kgg^, "I want regular education students to 
I understand that they are operating at 
I " x I the intersection of a number of his- 

| torical, cultural and political trends. I 
'. Martin Kozloff want them to understand that unless 
they become masters of their subject 
and not merely technicians, they will 
easily be shaped by these trends." 
Outside the classroom, Kozloff is doing research on 
Direct Instruction, what he deems as "the most well 
tested and most effective form of instruction." 
He is working with his research assistant, Frances 
Bessellieu, whose position is funded through the dis- 
tinguished professorship Kozloff has held for the past 
two years. 

"We're trying to see how Direct Instruction produces 
tight knit learning communities with children and 
teachers, faster high rates of achievement, raises 
children's self-esteem and becomes the core of a 
school's culture," he said. 

Ned Martin, the Will S. DeLoach Distinguished Profes- 
sor in Chemistry, uses high speed computers, such as 
those at the North Carolina Supercomputing Center, 
to do "theoretical calculations of various chemical 
properties in an attempt to relate chemical structure 
to observed phenomenon." 
His projects including helping under- 
stand how drugs bind to their active 
site, helping predict the shape pro- 
teins take and helping predict molecu- 
lar structure based on spectroscopic 
measurements. 

An application of his work would be to 
model on a computer how cocaine 
binds to opiate receptors in the brain. 
A better understanding of how drugs 
bind to receptors may eventually lead 
to the development of drugs that don't 
elicit a certain response, he said. 

Martin, who has been at UNCW for 26 years and is 
former chair of the Chemistry Department, is in the 
third year of a five-year appointment as distinguished 
professor. The position provides limited resources to 
pay students to assist in his research and as well as 
cover the cost of travel, equipment and software.
