“The North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association’s (APA-NC) Marvin Collins Planning Awards program annually recognizes agencies and individuals that have completed outstanding plans, programs, and projects; have excelled as planning students; or have made notable contributions to the planning profession. The awards signify the highest standards of achievement for planning in North Carolina, and highlight work that is worthy of attention.”(https://apa-nc.org/committees/awards-committee/)
Faculty and students in the Community and Regional Planning program received the APA-NC’s awards in three categories.

Nick Musarra, who graduated in Spring 2019, received the Outstanding Student Project award with his planning practicum project, Movement Murfreesboro.
