Former math professor Charles R. McNerney (BA-61, MA-62) passed away in January. Chuck began his long teaching career at UNC in 1969 after receiving a Ph.D. in mathematics education from Ohio State.

Chuck retired as professor emeritus in 1998 and received the Outstanding Educator Award from the UNC Alumni Association in 2001.

Dan Seager, former Director of the Libraries at UNC, and longtime UNC employee, passed away in March.

During his 28-year career at UNC, he supported the library resource needs of the expanding special education and nursing programs, the Pakistan project, the laboratory school and music libraries and conducted research and planning for Michener Library. Dan retired in 1984 as emeritus faculty.

Susan E. Spooner, former professor of College Student Personnel Administration at UNC, died in October as the result of an automobile accident.
