It’s the thirty-second annual Business Week at UNCW’s Cameron School of Business--meaning dozens of prominent alumni and executives have descended upon the Port City, to share their knowledge of marketing, entrepreneurship and information technology. Each year, programming is tailored to reflect Cape Fear-specific business trends. And today’s trajectories point to “worthy cause marketing” and a rise in regional craft breweries and wine startups.

Dr. Leslie Hossfeld is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Feast Down East.  The 4th Annual Feast Down East Conference is Thursday from 8am to 4pm at UNCW’s Burney Center.

DC Virgo Welcomes Resident Artist

Dec 11, 2013

Thanks to a grant secured by UNCW’s Office of Cultural Arts, DC Virgo Middle School has become a hotbed of original poetry. Throughout this week, the sixth- and seventh-graders are work-shopping personal poems under the guidance of a teaching artist from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. WHQR’s Katie O’Reilly reports that New Hanover County Schools are one of only two districts in the state to enjoy such opportunities through the Kennedy Center.  

Gun Violence Prevention: A Community Affair

Nov 15, 2013

Because Wilmington’s recent spate of gun violence has residents from every walk of life concerned, City Councilman and UNCW political science professor Earl Sheridan corralled some university colleagues for a community panel event.  WHQR’s Katie O’Reilly reports that Wednesday night’s discussion often landed on another local hot button: public education.

In yesterday’s municipal elections, Wilmington’s three incumbent city council candidates kept their seats, beating out three challengers. Kevin O’Grady, Charlie Rivenbark and Earl Sheridan will all begin new four-year terms. Mayor Bill Saffo, who ran unopposed, will also continue to serve the city for another two-year term.

Last night’s race was a close one. It wasn’t until close to ten o’clock last night that incumbent Earl Sheridan, a political science professor at UNCW, pulled slightly ahead of Skip Watkins, a local financial advisor.

Skip Watkins says he’s dreamed of serving in public office his whole life. A father, financial advisor and longtime volunteer with the Cape Fear Festival and Expo and the Azalea Festival, Watkins cites frustration over Wilmington City Council’s recent efforts to acquire a minor-league baseball stadium as the catalyst that ultimately spurred him to run for a seat on the Council. If elected, Skip Watkins hopes to provide the City with a dose of what he describes as “fiscal guidance.”
