Chancellor Earns Praise

Chancellor Holden Thorp's decision to suspend the search for a new UNC-affiliated airport in Orange County has earned much-deserved kudos from the community.  Thorp showed prudence and wisdom in deciding to alter course.  As he accurately pointed out, the manner in which this search was initiated doomed it from the beginning.  

I admire Thorp's willingness to re-think the situation.  He showed the community that he listens and is willing to work collaboratively.  Thanks, Chancellor.  Looking forward to working with you.
