**Edith “Edye” Nottingham, ’51**

The Bear community mourns the loss of one of its biggest supporters and a beloved member of its community for nearly three-quarters of a century, Edye Nottingham. She passed away November 16, 2023, at age 93.Edye and her husband Vic, ’52, of 62 years, both fiercely loyal Bears, co-chaired fundraising efforts to build the UNC football team, track and field and other sports. In 1992, along with fellow donors, they helped raise $3.5 million to build UNC’s current football stadium, Nottingham Field, named in their honor. Their incredible and unwavering generosity, and that of many others, created multiple endowments in the Nottinghams’ name that provide ongoing support for student-athletes and athletic facilities.

When the stadium opened in 1995 for its first football game, Edye along with her husband Vic, watched the Bears take the field from section D, row 25, seat 15. It’s a seat that has remained hers ever since. Seat 14 belonged to Vic and after his death in 2014, UNC turned his seat gold in a sea of blue to honor him — to hold a seat for him in a way that reflected his love for the Bears.

An Elementary Education major, Edye has been a generous, longtime supporter of UNC since her graduation in the early 1950s, working tirelessly to promote UNC Athletics and recruit passionate Bear fans. Edye was a proud Bear parent and grandparent to many UNC graduates.

For more than four decades, Edye has been an ardent champion and generous contributor to the university, and her and Vic’s generosity has provided support for scholarships, programs and facilities that have made a tremendous impact in Athletics and across our campus.

Nottingham Field will always be a reminder of Edye’s unwavering commitment, love and passion for UNC. As she was fond of saying, Bear down!

**Carl Iwasaki, ’85, Former Head Baseball Coach**

The UNC community was deeply saddened to learn of “Coach Carl’s” passing on February 7, 2024.A UNC alum as well as a former baseball player and coach, Iwasaki was the Bear’s ninth head coach, leading the team from 2010-22. During his 12 seasons at the helm, Iwasaki amassed over 300 wins, making the Hawaii native the fourth-winningest coach in UNC program history.

As a student-athlete, Iwasaki played four seasons as catcher for UNC. Prior to becoming UNC’s head coach, Iwasaki served as assistant coach and later head baseball coach at Austin College in Texas. There, he was named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2006 and 2007. In 2010, Iwasaki made the leap back to his alma mater, UNC, a newly Division I team.

In his first three seasons, he led the Bears to a Great West Conference title and the championship game of the 2011 Great West Conference (GWC) Baseball Tournament. In 2013, Iwasaki was named GWC Coach of the Year.

During Iwasaki’s tenure, dozens of student-athletes earned spots on All-Conference teams and received All-Academic awards. He was instrumental in the recruitment and development of Jensen Park, who earned both Great West Player of the Year in 2013 and WAC Player of the Year in 2015. Park was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in 2015. Nearly a dozen of Coach Carl’s players went on to play professionally

in the minor leagues.Iwasaki led efforts to move UNC into the Western Athletic Conference which has an automatic NCAA tournament berth. He also preached tirelessly about the importance of academic success, and in his final season as head coach, Iwasaki had eight student-athletes make the Summit League Commissioner’s Academic List.

Iwasaki touched so many students’ lives and made a tremendous impact on many people throughout his coaching career. He was known for his generous spirit and sincere willingness to help people. An organ donor, Iwasaki’s last act was donating his liver to save someone’s life.

Coach Carl will be greatly missed, but not forgotten.

**Allen McConnell, Ph.D., Senior Professor of Accounting**

Allen McConnell passed away March 13, 2024 at the age of 82. The longtime Accounting professor joined UNC’s (MCB) College of Business faculty in 1968, teaching students for 50 years.McConnell enjoyed students immensely and taught courses in finance, insurance law, auditing and governmental and managerial accounting. For over 15 years, he served as chair of the Department of Accounting and Computer Information Systems. The department earned its International Accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business under his leadership.

McConnell has received numerous honors and awards from his peers and professional organizations over the course of his career. In 2003, he received the 2003 CPA Making a Difference award from the Colorado Society of CPAs for his professional and community service and for his extraordinary work with students. He also worked as a CPA for several CPA firms in North Dakota and Colorado, including McConnell and Bohrer, LLC, in Greeley.

Perhaps most importantly, McConnell touched the lives of so many students, alumni and colleagues. He was a favorite professor of students, known for being tough but fair as well as supportive. McConnell advised MCB’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, an international honor society for accounting, finance and information systems, and the Professional Accounting Association for many years.

In 2009, MCB alumni and donors established the Allen McConnell Distinguished Chair in Accounting which recently surpassed $1 million in funding. The Chair recognizes the tremendous impact McConnell made on generations of students’ educational experiences and lives while also serving to attract and retain outstanding accounting faculty to MCB.

McConnell always made time to listen or help those in need. His presence brightened the lives of all who knew him, and his absence will be deeply felt. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Carol (Anderson) McConnell, his two children and three grandchildren. He established the Matthew A. McConnell Memorial Scholarship for University High School seniors in honor of his son who died in 1994 at the age of 24.

McConnell earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting from the University of North Dakota.

UNC is grateful for McConnell’s dedication and commitment to the university, its students and for his outstanding contributions to Accounting over the span of five decades. True to his nature, he asked that random acts of kindness be done in his memory.
