Hadley honored for service


Robyn S. Hadley, associate vice chancellor for students and director of the John B. Ervin Scholars Program at Washington University in St. Louis, recently was honored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Alumni Association with a 2015 Distinguished Service Medal. Hadley was one of three recipients recognized for outstanding service to that university.

Hadley graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1985 and has since served on the university’s Board of Visitors and its alumni association board.

Hadley started volunteering as an undergraduate, helping students to apply and prepare for college, and she continued that work throughout her academic and professional career. In 2005, her commitment to education led to the founding of the “What’s After High School?” program in Burlington, N.C. Hadley has been recognized by the White House and the U.S. Department of Education for her work in preparing students for success after high school.
