“North Carolina has lost a great man with the passing of Charlie Adams. I vividly remember the first time that I formally met Charlie, over 40 years ago. He had a presence as he entered a room.  From that first occasion, I watched him grow into the great man that he became. The one thing that I will always remember about him was his uncanny ability to recall names from the audiences at numerous meetings. It did not matter if he had not recently seen them: he still knew their names and their location and position in NC.

“Charlie Adams was a man who was kind and generous.  He loved all of us who worked with him, and it showed in his face every time we were together as staff and colleagues.  He was proud of and found tremendous joy in the work of the NCHSAA.  There was never a time, that I could not talk to Charlie or that he would not offer advice –asked for or not!  Some may have known him as I did, but those who didn’t, missed out on knowing not only a great leader, but more importantly, a great man.”
