Charlé LaMonica Named new World View Director
World View founder Robert Phay retired Nov. 30 after 15 years as director. In that time, World View worked with more than 20,000 North Carolina educators in a classroom setting and forged partnerships with more than 130 districts, schools and colleges from Cherokee County on the Tennessee border to Camden and New Hanover counties on the Atlantic coast.
Neil Bolick, World View’s associate director, will continue in his role as interim director until Feb. 1.
LaMonica comes to World View from Charlotte Country Day School, where she served as director of international studies and the school’s World View liaison. Previously, LaMonica taught English, history, language arts and social studies in middle and high schools for more than 10 years and at the community college and university level. Her involvement in international business and education has allowed her to collaborate with those working in China, the former Soviet Union and Kenya. While conducting community development, she designed and administered cross-cultural programs for the international community in Charlotte.
“Charle LaMonica brings to UNC’s World View, a distinguished record as a classroom teacher at the middle and high school levels and also in higher education at the community college and university levels,” Phay said. ”With a strong World View staff committed to UNC’s service mission, LaMonica possesses the energy and commitment to hard work along with the marketing skills and personality to promote global learning in the classrooms of North Carolina’s schools and colleges. I am confident she will lead World View to become a national leader in global education.”
Director Robert Phay Retired in Fall 2012
Robert Phay, William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Public Law and Government and director and founder of World View, has retired effective November 30, 2012.
Before starting World View, Robert served for fourteen years as director of the Principals’ Executive Program (PEP), a leadership training program for school administrators established at the Institute of Government in 1984. He has been a UNC at Chapel Hill faculty member for 48 years and was awarded the Chancellor’s Award in 1997 and the Razor Walker Award in 2004 for distinguished service to children and youth.
Robert began World View in 1998 to address the lack of international understanding among educators in North Carolina’s K-16 schools and community colleges. An innovator in the field of global education, Robert tirelessly espoused World View’s mission for 15 years. In that time World View has worked with over 20,000 North Carolina educators in a classroom setting and has partnerships with over 130 districts, schools, and colleges ranging from Cherokee County on the Tennessee border to Camden and New Hanover counties on the Atlantic coast.
Dr. William Harrison, Chairman of the NC State Board of Education, is a former member of the World View Advisory Board and watched as Robert took the World View idea and turned it into action. He fondly notes that “Robert Phay has been an absolute treasure for school leaders in North Carolina and is THE leader in understanding the need for our education system to have a global flavor. Robert talked about the need for international travel and global understanding in the early days of PEP, long before global awareness began receiving the deserved attention it is finally receiving.”
Robert is similarly remembered by Vice Chairman of the NC State Board of Education and World View Board Member, Wayne McDevitt. In his words, “Thousands of North Carolina educators, particularly in K-12 public schools, owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Robert Phay for his decades of leadership with the Principals’ Executive Program and World View. During his long career, Robert Phay has been the ‘doer,’ the achiever, the leader, the consummate professional, the perfect gentleman, and the enlightened, insightful sage…His work to create World View and its real-world experiences will pay dividends in North Carolina for years to come.”
