The College of Design community is sorry to share the sad news of the passing of alumnus and good friend Herbert P. McKim, FAIA, on Wednesday, March 3, 2010. Herb graduated in 1950 with a degree in architecture. Herb’s service to his profession, community, and the State of North Carolina was evident in the many awards he received throughout his life. The College of Design is particularly grateful for his many hours of volunteer service, most recently serving as co-chair of the college’s campaign steering committee that raised more than $9 million during NC State University’s Achieve! Campaign. In addition, Herb and his wife Catherine established the Catherine S. and Herbert P. McKim Diversity Scholarship Endowment for Architecture to benefit students at the college. A memorial service will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday, March 6, 2010, at St. James Church in Wilmington. More information on Herb’s many accomplishments can be found in his obituary from the Raleigh News & Observer.
