Maud Gatewood

Doctor of Fine Arts

Heralded as one of North Carolina's most accomplished artists, your paintings have received national acclaim for qualities that suggest straight-forwardness and honesty in depicting the human condition. They have appeared in many significant shows throughout the country, won scores of awards, and are part of several prestigious public and private collections. Among these collections is the Weatherspoon Art Gallery of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, which happily provides a home for the esteemed work of this Woman's College graduate.

While striving to perfect your craft and maintain your national standing in the arts community, it is especially commendable that local public service has also remained your priority. You have actively served your local community as a Caswell County Commissioner, including past service as Chair. You have been involved in historic preservation in Caswell County, playing a major role in the restoration of the plantation home known as "Longwood." Additionally, your contributions to the North Carolina Arts Council are particularly noteworthy. Blending your artistic and leadership skills, you also provided exemplary contributions to arts education in North Carolina and elsewhere, teaching at several colleges and universities and helping to develop the creative arts degree program at UNC Charlotte.

For your uncommon artistic talents, your significant achievements as a daughter of the University, and for your dedication to the spirit of public service which your alma mater so steadfastly values, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is pleased to confer upon you the degree, Doctor of Fine Arts.

Eloise Rallings Lewis

Doctor of Humane Letters

Recognized locally, regionally, and nationally as a leader in nursing education, your list of honors and awards is both lengthy and distinguished. You established an exceptional record at prestigious medical institutions and schools of nursing before arriving at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, but it is here that your greatest achievements took place and are widely celebrated. Indeed, history has shown that UNCG and you are a perfect match.

As founding Dean of UNCG's School of Nursing, you were immediately faced with the imposing task of phasing out the institution's two-year nursing program and establishing in its place a high quality B.S.N. degree. You skillfully guided the establishment and growth of the School, constructing the solid foundation on which its present success is built. In 1976 the Board of Governors honored you with the Oliver Max Gardner Award as the UNC system faculty member who "made the greatest contribution to the welfare of the human race" that year. Since retirement from UNCG, you have continued to hold leadership positions in various public and professional service organizations. Especially noteworthy is your longstanding work with Hospice at both the local and state level, which in 1989 earned you the Peter G. Keese Award the highest honor granted by the state Hospice organization. Indeed, your remarkable record of public service led former UNC President William C. Friday to applaud your leadership and advise us that "every generation should praise and pay tribute to those among us who have made a special contribution to the betterment of society."

In recognition of your many outstanding contributions to nursing education, your uncommon achievements in public and professional service, and for your genuine exemplification of the values that this institution celebrates, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is pleased to confer upon you the degree, Doctor of Humane Letters.
