— One of WRAL's own was honored Saturday with the Alumna of the Year award at Barton College in Wilson.

Director of local production Phyllis Parish Howard was instrumental in helping Barton College equip its broadcast control room and editing lab, with the help of WRAL.

Howard, who graduated in 1979, said she was "overwhelmed" by the award.

"It's really special when you know you're chosen out of all the alumni at Barton College. I love this place," she said.
