On Nov. 17, 2005, the UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees awarded Marjorie Bryan Buckley with its highest honor – the William Richardson Davie Award. 

Named for the University’s founding father, the award recognizes individuals who have exhibited outstanding service to UNC-Chapel Hill and beyond.

Buckley’s record of public service is extraordinary.  She was instrumental in bringing the Outward Bound School to North Carolina in 1967 and in creating the Carolina Center for Public Service, which was dedicated in 1999. 

In addition, she served on the University’s Board of Visitors from 1997 to 2001, and presently serves on the Carolina First Campaign Steering Committee and the Carolina Women’s Leadership Council, including its executive committee. 

Buckley currently resides in Bethlehem, Pa., where she vigorously continues giving back to her alma mater.
