Creek Pebbles: The Man Behind Burkot Hall By Cherry Crayton

Greg Wallace

Burkot Hall is a three-floor residence hall that opened in 1973. It’s named for Alexander Roman “A.R.” Burkot, who worked at Campbell University for nearly 50 years, making him one of the university’s longest-serving employees in history. Here are five other things to know about Burkot:

Law professor presenting at today’s Bar Association meeting

1. He was a natural-born leader. The oldest of 13 children, Burkot was born in Pennsylvania in 1909 to parents who were immigrants from Poland. 2. He was committed to quality education throughout his life. Burkot was the first person in his hometown of 900 to graduate from high school. He went on to attend Dickinson College and earn a graduate degree in modern languages from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 3. He loved his languages. At the time that he was hired to teach at Campbell in 1935, Campbell University historian J. Winston Pearce noted in the book “Campbell College: Big Miracle at Little Buies Creek,” Burkot could teach five languages, speak six languages and read no less than 12 languages. 4. He pretty much did it all at Campbell. Former Campbell President Leslie H. Campbell wrote in the 1946 Pine Burr yearbook, “A history of Dean Burkot’s duties and areas of service is impossible.” During his 49 years at Campbell, Burkot

held the titles and responsibilities of teacher, dean of men, registrar, director of admissions, academic dean, vice-president of academic affairs and provost. 5. He insisted on excellence. Burkot once said, “The price of mediocrity is death, if not immediate, still inevitable.” Also maintaining that Campbell “travel the high road of quality of education and living” throughout his career, Burkot helped Campbell evolve from a junior college to a senior college to a university. He died in 1984. Editor’s note: The Creek Pebbles recurring feature on We Are Campbell looks back at the university’s history. Its name is homage to the school’s first newspaper, Creek Pebbles.

Campbell Law School Associate Professor of Law Greg Wallace is presenting and participating in a panel discussion at the 2013 North Carolina Bar Association Constitutional Rights & Responsibilities Section Annual Meeting today. The meeting includes a continuing legal education program for legal professionals. The program, “North Carolina’s Marriage Amendment: On-theGround Impact One Year Later,” provides a thorough overview of the amendment’s impact, which voters passed in May 2012. The program helps guide practitioners on client advisement and examine pending legal challenges to marriage-defining laws. “This event will help practicing lawyers and local government counsel to better position themselves to address and meet the needs of their clients in situations the new amendment may affect,” said Wallace. qqq If you would like to be featured in Campbell Spotlight contact Billy Liggett at

If you need lab work done, stick with one of Cigna’s network labs. Not only will you get quality care, but you’ll also save more money. That’s because you will usually be charged a much lower rate when you use an in-network lab, rather than a lab that’s not part of the Cigna network. The importance of lab tests

Your doctor may order tests to help find out more about your health – like to see if you have diabetes, or to find out if your thyroid medicine is working. For these tests and others, your doctor will need a sample of your blood, urine or tissue, which is then sent to a lab for analysis. Save money on lab tests

Save money by having those lab tests done at a Cigna network lab. Here’s how to make it happen: • Find network labs by going to or calling the number on your Cigna ID card. • Tell your doctor you want to use a Cigna network lab. • If your doctor takes a sample in the office, ask for it to be sent to a Cigna network lab. • Make sure the lab is an in-network lab. Just because a lab accepts your Cigna ID card doesn’t necessarily mean it’s part of the Cigna network. Going out of network could cost you

If you use a lab that’s not in the Cigna network, you’ll be responsible for paying the out-of-network rate. You may even have to pay the full cost of the service with no discount at all. This could end up costing you a lot more than what you’d pay at an in-network lab. Save even more

If you go to a national lab such as Quest Diagnostics® or Laboratory Corporation of America® (LabCorp), you can get even bigger savings. Even though other labs may be part of the Cigna network, you can save up to 75% when you choose a national lab. And with hundreds of locations nationwide, it’s easy to get quality services at a lower cost. Find an in-network lab near you on
