Like uncle, like nephew ... sort of
Commencement day always is a celebration and typically, it's a family day -- time to celebrate the end of a grueling sojourn for students and parents, and envision the next beginning.
One story of family at the Dec. 15 commencement included a graduate (nee student) and his uncle, a former UNC Charlotte professor. Tim Anway graduated with a bachelor's in Engineering. His uncle, Professor Emeritus Jim Dudley, came out to celebrate Tim. Dudley, a retired professor of social work, from the College of Health and Human Services attended commencement and the following graduation day reception at the William States Lee College of Engineering.
Tim couldn't resist a visit to a still in-process race car project he had worked on in the Alan D. Kulwicki Motorsports Laboratory; nor could Jim. Tim (right) and Jim (below) are pictured with the race car.
Jim has no plans to begin a second career in open-wheel auto racing.
