Bauer receives North Carolina Award

Professor Margaret Bauer has been named one of six recipients of this year’s North Carolina Award, the state’s highest civilian honor. Dr. Bauer wins for Literature and  received the award from Governor Roy Cooper at a gala in Raleigh this week.

The recipients included a scientist who works on air quality, the architect of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, a state administrator who dedicated her career to expanding technology access across North Carolina, the former chancellor of UNC-Charlotte, and a former US attorney general. Two tables of ECU supporters, including Dean Downs and Provost Mitchelson, attended the black-tie dinner. It was a great evening for Margaret, ECU English, and the North Carolina Literary Review.
