UNC President Emeritus William Friday is being honored on two UNC system campuses.
Bronze busts of the longtime public university president were commissioned by a group with ties to the university and are being placed on campus at N.C. State and UNC Chapel Hill, reports Metro Magazine.
One bust has been placed outside NCSU's Nelson Hall, the former site of the textile school where Friday studied as an undergrad, the magazine reports.
The second will be placed outside UNC-CH's Manning Hall, the former home of that university's law school. Friday earned his law degree there.
Friday, 88, is on the mend after recently suffering a minor heart attack. You can read more about that here.
Friday presided over the university system from 1956 to 1986.
