But George Can’t Fire Anybody
The $14 million renovation of
Boshamer Stadium includes a growing trend in athletics naming. Cary
Boshamer ’ 17 keeps his name on the
stadium, but the Tar Heels will play on
Bryson Field, the result of a $3 million
gift from Vaughn and Nancy Bryson, both
1960 graduates; he played baseball here.
Fans will enter Boshamer through the
Steinbrenner Family Courtyard, courtesy
of a $1 million donation from the New
York Yankees owner, who brought his
teams to Chapel Hill for exhibition games
three times while his daughter was a student here.
Does He Have a Building Yet?
Carolina’s most notable geography
major does not. But within the School
of Social Work is the Jordan Institute for
Families, whose mission is to “strengthen
families and engage communities,”
endowed by Michael Jordan ’ 86.
The women whose names are on
Carolina buildings are former Dean
of Women Katherine Carmichael
(Carmichael dorm), Elizabeth Scott
Carrington (nursing school), Susan
Caudill ’ 80 (W. Lowry and Susan Caudill
chemistry labs), Mary Lily Kenan Flagler
(Kenan dorm), Barbara Lasater Hanes
(Frank Borden ’ 42 and Barbara Lasater
Hanes Art Center), Roberta Jackson
(Jackson Hall), Mary Ellen Jones (
laboratory building), Carol McCaskill (McCaskill
Soccer Center, named for Norman ’ 33
and Carol McCaskill), Mary Ann Smith
(Mary Ann Smith Building), Cornelia
Phillips Spencer (Spencer dorm) and
Sonja Haynes Stone (Center for Black
Culture and History).
