Social Work Professor to Receive 2019 Distinguished Faculty Legacy Award from ECU

On May 9, Social Work Professor Reggie York received word from East Carolina University (ECU) School of Social Work that he had been chosen as the recipient of the 2019 Distinguished Faculty Legacy Award.

“I am thrilled to have been chosen for this recognition for my many years of work at ECU,” York said.

Before coming to UNCW, York taught at ECU for 20 years. Additionally, he served as the first director of the School of Social Work following the merger of social work with other units in the College of Human Ecology.

The award will be presented to York on Nov. 8, during ECU’s School of Social Work’s Alumni and Friends event.
