WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - An award named for a former WECT general manager was presented to the Leadership Wilmington Alumnus of the Year on Thursday.
Hal Kitchin, a member of the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, was given the Karl Davis Award. Davis, a WECT GM who died in 2008, was active in the Wilmington community and loved by many.
"It's gratifying," Kitchin said. "I've really enjoyed the time I've spent here on the Chamber of Commerce. I think it's an important function for our community. It's really been a great way for me to get involved in my new hometown."
Kitchin was reappointed to the UNCW Board of Trustees to serve a second term through 2021 and is a former president of the New Hanover County Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division.
