    thanks Nancy. Yes is impressive that rural leaders like Bob Nutter, Bob Strayhorn and Gordon Neville have been included as town treasures. And IMO – our distinction lies in the combination of town/rural/university communities. Maybe our treasures will find a way to unify us.

    Consider that Norma White, who lives in Little River (the Northeast corner of the county), now has a plaque that honors her as a Carrboro Town Treasure. Its not deliberate – but its pretty strange.

    The organizers and board are gracious and interested in looking more closely at this.

    Congratulations to all the town treasures.

    One additional person worthy of mention in this context is Jane Smith Patterson.

    “Patterson, who lives in Chapel Hill, has been an advocate for equality for women and minorities throughout her life. She is a native of Tabor City and has worked to promote access to technology and broadband communications in rural North Carolina. She served as executive director of the e-NC Authority, an organization with a goal of bringing affordable high-speed Internet access to rural parts of the state.”
