Chancellor Carol L. Folt (right) receives the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center 12th Person Award from Phil Ford on July 27.

From the moment she first learned about the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center three years ago, Chancellor Carol L. Folt has been an avid backer of the center and its mission of compassionately treating severe burn victims.

The center recognized that support on July 27 as it presented Folt with the 12th Person Award. The center’s advisory board presents the award, named after Phil Ford – who wore No. 12 for the men’s basketball team in the 1970s – annually for outstanding support of the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center and its mission.
