Bishop Michael Begley Award

It is named in honor of the first bishop of the Diocese of Charlotte and fellow Irish American whose duty to God and service to the people of North Carolina should never be forgotten. Bishop Begley led the Diocese of Charlotte from 1972 until his retirement in 1984, and was known as a wonderful man and a friend to both young and old.
