CRCDS Trustee Emerson U. Fullwood was recently honored by the Countywide CDC Committee on the Humanities and the Arts in Wilmington, North Carolina for his work in promoting civil rights.

Fullwood, a retired Xerox executive, was one of the first African-American students to integrate North Carolina State University in Raleigh.  His successful corporate career helped pave the way for many African-Americans who followed him.

An article on Mr. Fullwood's award appeared in the July 11th edition of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.  A link to the article is below.
