On Thursday, October 9, 2014, Dr. Dana Clark was honored by the Destination Marketing Association of North Carolina. Dr. Clark received the Barentine Special Achievement Award, which is given to a bureau executive or other individual who has demonstrated significant service to the Destination Marketing Association of North Carolina and its member bureaus in helping to achieve its mission and has made significant contributions toward state or national tourism initiatives. Dr. Clark was awarded this high honor because of his close involvement with industry and the way he translates that involvement to the class room. Dr. Clark’s students continuously reach tourism leadership positions and he feeds the tourism employment pipeline through one of the best intern programs in the nation. Having won the Barentine, Dr. Clark is now the only individual to win all three top tourism honors in North Carolina: the Barentine, the Tourism Excellence for Public Service, and the Tourism Excellence for an Individual. The Barentine Award is named after Richard Barentine, DMANC’s first president in 1976.
