Blue Zone "Going Pro" Recap
Triangle NACE had a wonderful chapter meeting in May. We had the priviledge of visiting the new Blue Zone, overlooking Kenan Stadium at UNC-Chapel Hill. We were hosted by the Blue Zone's exclusive caterer, Rocky Top Catering, who provided an amazing evening of food, including a lobster stuffed filet roulade entree, and desserts from Twisted Fork Bakery. Other event sponsors included Classic Party Rentals, Tre Bella Inc, and f8 Photo Studios, who provided the photos below.
We had a special guest speaker, Phil Ford, legendary member of the UNC Basketball family for over 25 years. He currently works for the Educational Foundation, the fundraising arm of the UNC athletic department. Mr. Ford discussed his path of rising from a Rocky Mount, NC native to a star player at UNC-Chapel Hill in 1978, to being a professional basketball player.
Also at this meeting, the winners of the NACE Experience! 2012 scholarship were announced. Winners of the merit scholarship were Michelle Faber and Jenna Olender. The three other scholarship winners were Diane Tighe, Laura Petersen, and Mary Moore Larik. Congrats to our winners!
