‘Privilege of My Life to Be Here’
What are the first five letters in Carolina? Robed in blue and looking as if she can’t quite
believe her good fortune, Carol Folt hugs UNC System President Thomas Ross ’ 75 (JD)
at her installation on University Day, and Ross and Gov. Pat McCrory feel the electricity.
The UNC System Board of Governors chose Folt on Ross’ endorsement that Folt supported
the liberal arts and constitutionally mandated low tuition, was a proven fundraiser and would
understand that academics come first but that athletics play an important role in campus — and
alumni — life. Stories, pages 20 and 54.
