BY SUSAN USHER

seedling nearly as tall as he. Darby was the center of at

the bicentennial of the founding of the University of
North Carolina at Chape! Hill.
The brief ceremony celebrated the symbolism of the
seedling, grown from a seed taken two years ago from
the historic Davie Poplar on the UNC campus.
Before a small audience on the front lawn, the
Jj school band performed, an occasional piece of sheet rnu

JROTC Color Guard from West Brunswick High School
presented the colors.

the seedling on behalf of Brunswick County during an
Oct. 12 ceremony at the University of North Carolina,

Bicentennial celebration and to hear President Hill

Principal Sandra Robinson said that, as a result of
Mark's experiences, there is now "truly a link" between
the university, Shallotte Middle School and the Bruns

Davie Award recipient for service to UNC and current
member of the Board of Visitors.
Like the Davie Poplar itself, she said, quoting an
early UNC class poem. UNC stands "a monarch grander
than its fellows...," its influence far-reaching to all cor
ners of the state.
"Likewise may our Brunswick County Davie Poplar
take root, prosper and grow."
While the University of Georgia was the first to se
cure its charter, the University of North Carolina was the
first state university in America to open its classrooms
for students, on Jan. 15, 1795.

in the ground Monday morning by coach and physical
education teacher Ron Champion. The tree was to be
planted later in the week.
Superintendent of Schools Ralph Johnston presented
Darby with a gold-painted shovel that will be kept at the
school as a memento of the ceremony.
He related the planting of the tree to the founding of
the university 20() years ago.
"Both represent the future for North Carolina chil
dren," he said. "Tfieir education is of much importance.
Both our future and theirs depends on it."
