Oct. 12 in Chapel Hill. The event is part of the bicenten
nial's opening ceremonies Oct. 11-12.
Harper, a newspaper editor and 1969 Carolina grad
uate, has been appointed bicentennial ambassador foi
The university will commemorate its 200th anniver
sary with an eight-month bicentennial observance con
tinuing through May 15, 1994. More than 100 academic,
cultural and historic events are planned in Chapel Hill
and around the state.
As a participant in the Davie Poplar Ceremony,
Darby will receive a seedling from the historic Davie
Poplar, a Carolina landmark since the university's
founding in 1793. Legend says that UNC founder
William R. Davie selected the university site while rest
ing beneath the three near the campus center.

the seedlings to a child from each of North Carolina's
1(X) counties. The ceremony begins at 2 p.m. near the
Davie Poplar in McCorkle Place.
Darby will take the seedling, which is about 20 inch
es high, back to Brunswick County, where it will be
planted near a public building this fall. Harper will assist
with that ceremony.

the roots of U.S. public higher education in North
Carolina, as well as UNC-CH's outreach and public ser
vice in the counties, said Steven J. Tepper, executive di
rector of the observance.
County ambassadors were chosen from nominations
submitted by the UNC-CH Board of Visitors and cam

many have been active in their communities and with
Selection of Davie Poplar representatives was super
vised by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. All
the children are sixth-graders, symbolic of the UNC
freshman class of 2000.

N.C. Partnership for Children.

affordable day care, health care and
other crucial services to young chil
dren. The plans will be developed
by spring 1994, under the guidance
of the N.C. Partnership for Children,
and are to reflect the unique needs
of the various counties.
Hunt plans to ask the General
Assembly for additional funds to ex
pand Smart Start to at least eight
more counties next year, and addi
tional counties the following year.
Meanwhile, the counties not cho
sen for Smart Start, like Brunswick,
will share $1.5 million (about
$18,000 each) to conduct an inten
sive needs and resources assess
ment. Another $656,000 in state and
federal funds will finance similar ef

to have its application critiqued, as
offered by the state. He planned to
talk Tuesday with the team's meet
ing convener, Brunswick County
Health Director Michael Rhodes.
"I would hate to see that energy
and commitment lost." said Tewey.

garding how serious these problems
are here in our county."
