Charlotte Legacy Event on Wednesday, November 7, at Spirit Square
beginning at 6:00 p.m. During the evening, the Hugh McColl Legacy Award
will be presented to Dr. Zeiss for his visionary and transformational
leadership to the Charlotte community. This award was inspired by the
leadership example of Hugh McColl and was established to inspire and

In addition, there will be a panel discussion on transforming the
educational system in Charlotte. The theme for the panel is "Public
Education Is a Fundamental Building Block for a World Class Business

into the 21st century. Panelists include Dr. Phil Dubois, Chancellor of
the University of North Carolina at Charlotte; Dr. Peter Gorman,
Superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools; Ms. Teresa Maria
Rivero, Gates Foundation; and Dr. Tony Zeiss.
