TERRACE CEREMONY: Barbara Fuller of Greenville, left, accepts a Laupus Library bronze medallion from Dorothy Spencer, associate vice chancellor for communication and information resources and director of Laupus Library, during an Oct. 23 ceremony. Fuller and her family named the library’s fourth floor terrace in memory of her brother, Thomas Darwin Wilson. Wilson, a native of Asheville, was a Marine pilot in Vietnam. Hit by enemy fire, he landed his plane safely in a rice paddy, saving the crew and four wounded soldiers he was evacuating. He received a presidential unit citation and Purple Heart for heroism. Fuller is a past executive director of the Pitt County Medical Society. (Photo by Elbert Kennard, ECU Health Sciences Multimedia and Technology Services)
