UNC to name hospital classroom for women's basketball coach

Posted June 25, 2010

— The NC Cancer Hospital on the campus of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill will recognize the long-standing support and $50,000 donation of women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell by naming a classroom in her honor at the hospital school.

“It makes me so happy to support what our UNC doctors and staff are doing for kids and I hope that kids who use the classroom will feel a connection to everyone in the Tar Heel family who is pulling for their recovery,” Hatchell said in a statement released Friday.

Doctor Stuart Gold, chief of pediatric oncology, said the hospital school is an essential part of the cancer center's mission to treat the whole child.
