University Plans Jim Gallagher Memorial Site

gallagherUNC Chapel Hill and the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute are planning a special Conference Room to honor the life and legacy of James J. Gallagher, former Director of FPG and a Past President of the UNCCH Retired Faculty Association. He was also Kenan Professor of Education at UNCCH for over 45 years.

The Conference site will be designed and constructed within the main FPG Research Building. The FPG will provide part of the funds. The balance of funds will be donated by colleagues, associates, friends and family of Jim Gallagher. Fund raising for the needed $25,000 will be coordinated by Dr. Mary Ruth Coleman, RFA member and long time FPG Research Scientist and colleague of Jim Gallagher, and Don Stedman, a long time friend and associate and Past President of RFA.

If you wish to donate $25 , $50 , $75  or more to the fund, send a check to Don Stedman, RFA, at the Friday Center by April 15, 2017 or follow this link to make your gift online (on that page scroll down to the Funding Opportunities section, then James J. Gallagher Conference Room).
