Architecture Alumnus Named AIA Fellow
School of Architecture alumnus Chuck Travis was inducted into the College of Fellows by the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Election to the College of Fellows is the highest honor bestowed by AIA upon an architect in the United States. Travis joins only three other members in the North Carolina AIA as well as 147 AIA members nationwide to be awarded this prestigious designation this year.
Travis graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1982 with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture; he subsequently received a Bachelor of Architecture from N.C. State University. A principal at Housing Studio in Charlotte, Travis also is mayor of Cornelius. In 2010, he received the AIA Charlotte Service Award for his "extraordinary service to the community and profession."
Two Voice Students in National Competition
Two UNC Charlotte music students will compete in the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) National Student Auditions on July 7. The students, Hunter Aldridge and Tyrez Dabbs, are both tenors and both study with Dr. Brian Arreola, assistant professor of voice and director of the Department of Music opera workshop program.
To qualify for the National Student Auditions, the two students advanced through three rounds of competition over the past five months.
The National Student Auditions will be held at UNC Greensboro at the NATS National Conference on July 7. More than 150 students will compete in 12 categories. After two rounds of competition, 24 students will receive cash prizes – two from each category.
