Julian Robertson gets Chapel Hill Award


Tiger Management's Julian Robertson in May received the "Distinguished Service Medal" from the alumni association of the University of North Carolina. Robertson has been a big supporter of his alma mater over the years, and his recent award came the very day the latest crop of "Robertson Scholars" graduated from the school.

The Robertson Scholarship program was created years ago when the Tiger chief's sons attended the schools. In the last decade, Robertson has given some $10 million to the school through his family foundation.
