Our thanks to the NC Justice Center for honoring our founder and chair of our board, Gerry Hancock, with a Lifetime Champion of Justice award tonight. This is our favorite Gerry quote, which pretty much says it all: “I confess to a sense of urgency. Children have only one time in their lives to be educated, and that time for our children is now.”
UNC Charlotte Chancellor Phil Dubois is on Carolina Business Review tonight.
