Supporting Sports Medicine

Don and Billie Stallings of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and Palm Beach, Florida, have given a gift to support constructing a sports medicine complex that will enable further advances in its world-leading traumatic brain injury research.

This gift will also allow for expansion of the existing sports medicine programming to allow more of the general student body to have access to these state-of-the-art services. This space will continue to be named for their late son, Eddie Evans.

“Sports medicine was very special to Eddie,” Billie said. “He wanted to be an athlete, but his heart condition wouldn’t allow it. This complex is the perfect tribute to him, because of the wonderful work it will do in his name on behalf of what he loved.”

“The Stallings are among Carolina’s most generous supporters, and this gift builds on their remarkable legacy seen on our campus and in the lives of the people we serve,” Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz said. 

“Carolina has been good to us,” Don said. “We love the place and want to give back to it.”
