Earlier this month, Steve Davis (Associate Director, Research Laboratories of Archaeology) was inducted into the Order of the Golden Fleece, UNC’s oldest and highest honorary society. Founded in 1904, the Order honors individuals who possess exemplary character and have made significant and lasting contributions to the university. Steve has spent most of his professional career at UNC, often working behind the scenes, but always making a huge difference to the institution, his colleagues, and his students. He is completely selfless in his willingness to help those around him. And he always does what’s best for the institution, even if it carries a personal cost. He has trained generations of UNC students in the techniques of archaeology, and many of these students have gone on to prominent careers in their own right, thus enhancing the university’s national reputation.
Congratulations to Steve for being awarded this high honor!
