Professor Named Tar Heel of Week

Dr. Will Hooker, professor in the Department of Horticultural Science, was named the Raleigh News & Observer’s Tar Heel of the Week for “30 years of teaching landscape horticulture and pushing environmental causes for the university.”

His hands-on approach includes having students build bamboo structures in front of the horticulture building and create sculptures using the muck out of Jordan Lake. In addition, Hooker has been involved in neighborhood festivals, a tour of local chicken coops and efforts to convert the grounds at Dorothea Dix hospital to a city park.
