Along with the iconic actor/director Ira David Wood III, poet Alan Shapiro and three notables of science and public service, our own poet, Lenard D. Moore, editor of Beneath the Willow Tree, In the Night Shallows, The Stone House, Learning to See the Truth, is a 2014 recipient of the North Carolina Awards for Literature, Science, the Fine Arts and Public Service.
This award is for the most notable attainments in these fields conferred with the approval of the Governor and the Council of State.
The awards represent the highest honor the State of North Carolina can bestow upon a citizen.
Thank you NC for valuing and recognizing Lenard, as we have for years!
