This year, the SBTDC has chosen a candidate for the Marcus Clifton King Award for Long-Term Service. This award is given to an employee that has provided exemplary service to the SBTDC over the long term, and that certainly describes this year’s recipient – Assistant Director for Administration and Operations Larry Loucks. Larry began his SBTDC career as a counselor in the Fayetteville office in 1992, and moved into his current role in 1995. As the lead operations person for the UNC System’s largest inter-institutional program, his experience with campus administrative operations across NC is unrivaled. Larry’s proactive approach and ongoing commitment make him an invaluable asset to the SBTDC.
