Carolina Law Community Members,
Nominations are now being accepted for
the James E. and Carolyn B. Davis Society.
Jim Davis, a 1973 School of Law graduate
of superb ability and character, died of cancer in 1980. His wife,
Carolyn, an outstanding person in her own right, died of cancer in 1982.
To perpetuate the memory of these two individuals, who possessed qualities of
integrity, responsibility, leadership, and dedication, their friends and
families have established the James E. and Carolyn B. Davis Society in their
names. The Society allows for recognition of up to eight third year law
students who have made significant contributions to the UNC School of Law.
The James E. and Carolyn B. Davis
Society is intended to recognize third year students possessing both academic
and personal excellence and a willingness to serve for the betterment of the
School of Law and its faculty and students. Inductees will be recognized
at Commencement and receive a framed certificate in honor of their
selection. They will also be honored at a reception during Commencement
weekend. A Davis Society plaque with each recipient's name is also
displayed in the School’s lobby.
To be considered for the James E. and
Carolyn B. Davis Society, a third year student must be nominated, in writing,
by another law student (any year), or faculty or staff member.
Those making nominations should consider the qualities of leadership ability,
extracurricular activities, character, and academic achievement. There
is no official nomination form, but please include why you believe your nominee
deserves to be included in the Davis Society. Nominees may later
submit additional information about their extracurricular activities, honors,
and academic achievement. You may drop off nominations to Hannah Camenzind's office (Room
5033), or email her at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
THE DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS IS
Friday, March 28 at 5:00 P.M.
I hope that you all consider nominating
a member of the Class of 2014 for this honor.
