The NC Media and Journalism Hall of Fame will induct Don Curtis, Lisa R. Davis, Rick French, Ken Lowe and John Sweeney on Friday, April 13.
Founded and administered by the UNC School of Media and Journalism, the Hall of Fame honors professionals with ties to North Carolina who demonstrate leadership in their spheres of influence; service to the professions and society; and performance that meets the highest professional standards.
Honorees will be recognized during a gala benefit at 6:30 p.m. at The William and Ida Friday Center in Chapel Hill. The benefit, which includes a reception, dinner and program, will support the MJ-school in its critical role in developing future industry and academic leaders.
Honorees are selected by a committee of professionals and faculty that considers all nominations. Since its founding in 1981, the NC Media and Journalism Hall of Fame has recognized 190 professionals in advertising, public relations, journalism and related fields.
