Advisory Board members named to Business Journal's Most Influential list
Law School Advisory Board members Henry Frye and Bobby Long and founding donor Jim Melvin were among 102 Triad leaders named to the Triad Business Journal's 2008 Most Influential list, published in the paper's Nov. 30 edition.

Frye became the first black member of the N.C. Supreme Court in 1993 and later served as chief justice. He played a key role in bringing the law school to Greensboro, and was the featured guest for the second program in the Joseph M. Bryan Distinguished Leadership Lecture Series, held Oct. 8.

Long is chairman of the Greensboro Jaycees Charitable Foundation and supports a variety of local causes. He helped secure the law school for downtown Greensboro and played an important role in preserving Greensboro's annual PGA golf tournament on the schedule.

Melvin is president of the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation. He is a former mayor of Greensboro and is working to promote economic development opportunities between Greensboro and Alamance County.

Elon University President Leo M. Lambert and five university trustees—Tom Chandler, Louis DeJoy, Allen Gant Jr., Jack Lindley Sr., and Jim Powell—were also named to the list. Adjunct instructor of finance Dick Shirley also appeared on the list.
