UNC Charlotte’s Collegiate Recovery Community will be the beneficiary of the inaugural Charlotte Heroes in Recovery 6K Run/Walk scheduled for 8:00 AM, Saturday, June 21, at Reedy Creek Park.
According to its website, Heroes in Recovery is a movement ignited by Foundations Recovery Network and the widespread community to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help.
"This race is the type of community event that draws attention to the important work that we do every day," stated Carol Rose, marketing specialist for the Collegiate Recovery Community. "We work hard to break down the cultural stereotypes and stigmas associated with addiction, and we want people to celebrate recovery and put the spotlight on healthy lifestyles."
Three College of Liberal Arts & Sciences faculty will be celebrated for their teaching excellence during an awards event on Monday, April 28 at 2:30 PM in Cone University Center 210.
The award winners are: Stanley Schneider, Biology, the inaugural recipient of the College’s Integration of Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award, which recognizes a tenure-track faculty member; Daniel Boisvert, Philosophy, recipient of the Full-time Lecturer Award for Teaching Excellence; and Rodney Stringfellow, Languages and Culture Studies, recipient of the Part-time Lecturer Award for Teaching Excellence.
"We invite the entire UNC Charlotte community, as well as the broader community, to join us as we hold up these faculty members for their teaching excellence," said Nancy Gutierrez, dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. "These faculty members bring creativity, dedication and energy to the classroom, benefiting our students, their colleagues and the University."
