Lindsay Bierman, editor in chief of Southern Living magazine, will be the next chancellor of the UNC School of the Arts.
Bierman, 48, was elected chancellor Friday by the UNC Board of Governors. He will start by Aug. 1 at an annual salary of $255,000, succeeding James Moeser, the former UNC-Chapel Hill chancellor who served as interim UNCSA leader since June.

The site of Fort Nooherooka, on N.C. 58 and Nooherooka Road near Snow Hill, was the location of a bloody battle that left more than 900 Tuscarora natives dead, enslaved or captured by colonists. This weekend, members of the Tuscarora Nation are spending time at the site, where an arch-shaped memorial was dedicated last year on the 300th anniversary of the March 1713 war.
