Jonathan Reckford with students

Carolina alumnus Jonathan T. M. Reckford meets with UNC students in the new Genome Sciences building on Oct. 11. Reckford, who graduated from UNC in 1984, was on campus to deliver the 2012-2013 Hillard Gold ’39 Lecture, part of the Eve Marie Carson Memorial Speaker Series, and to receive a Distinguished Alumnus award on University Day.

In the lecture, Reckford, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, discussed how to find one’s passion. The Eve Marie Carson Memorial Speakers Series honors the late student body president and is sponsored by the Carolina Women’s Leadership Council and UNC Student Government.
