The UNCW Legacy continues!
The Legacy Pinning Ceremony was held on Saturday, October 18, 2008 at the Burney Center on UNCW’s campus. 25 legacy students and their families were greeted at the door by Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo as they shuffled in out of the rain. After their warm welcome, the families enjoyed a host of refreshments amidst conversation about what it means to be a Seahawk. As the program began, Jason Wheeler, President of the Alumni Association welcomed everyone to the event and explained how special this group was to UNCW. As he finished his remarks, Rob McInturf, Director of UNCW Alumni Relations called all legacy students up to stage one by one to receive their legacy pin. The students returned to their tables where they were congratulated by their families. Once all of the names were called, all legacies were pinned by their families. The evening concluded with family portraits. It was a moving night for all who attended as the legacy of UNCW continues!
