As of 1985, Carrie D. Bynum had served the University for 18 years, recruiting families to participate in the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center’s program of research and child care and nurturing them in their relationship with the University.

In her award citation, Bynum was praised for contributing to her work “the glue of humanity, love and concern that … held many of these families together.

“Whether training and counseling parents of high-risk children in her own home or giving leadership and wisdom to the whole program, she has taken on a load of uncompensated work in her church, in the public school and in community social services that would, by itself, constitute full-time activity for a person who did not have a job.”
