Dr. Lew Brown (Bryan School) received The Order of the Long Leaf Pine, the state’s highest civilian award. Brown retired at the end of the 2013-14 academic year, following a 28-year teaching career. A North Carolina native and four-time graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, he taught thousands of UNCG students at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels over the course of his career. Brown has received numerous awards for teaching excellence, case research and professional work, including the Bryan School’s Outstanding Family Award and the UNCG Alumni Teaching Excellence Award. Prior to coming to UNCG, Brown served as assistant city manager of Durham, city manager of Southern Pines, and founded a consulting firm to assist governments in productivity improvements that grew into a 200-employee company.
