The University of North Carolina honored Meriwether Evans 3L and Charlotte Stewart 2L during a March 26 awards ceremony hosted by the Carolina Center for Public Service. Seventeen individuals and organizations received honors.
“The breadth and depth of the efforts of these students, faculty, staff and University units exemplify UNC’s commitment to public service and engagement,” said Lynn Blanchard, center director. “The work they have done upholds the tradition of connecting the University’s mission of teaching, research and service to addressing practical problems, and we are proud to honor them.”
Evans and Stewart were two of the five people who received Robert E. Bryan Public Service Awards in recognition of their exemplary public service efforts. Evans was recognized for her work with the Pro Bono Program, ensuring that people without economic or political means can pursue legal claims and rights. Stewart was recognized for her work to help found the Orange County Homeless Court, a statewide Veterans Legal Resource Network and the ACLU Voting Rights Education Project.
