Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC), in partnership with NC AHEC, has been engaged by the NC Department of Health and Human Services to hire and train staff to support existing efforts of local health departments to track the transmission of COVID-19 in North Carolina. CCNC/NC AHEC will assist local health departments in meeting the surge in demand for contract tracing staff expected when more widespread COVID-19 testing begins.
Contact tracing is a key element in Governor Cooper’s strategy of testing, tracing and trends aimed at gradually easing stay-at-home-restrictions and supporting a safe economic recovery.

CCNC is hiring a Statewide Contact Tracing Team to contact North Carolinians who have been exposed to COVID-19, explain how they can keep themselves and others safe, and connect them to necessary healthcare resources.

Obituary, Dr. James R. "Rush" Beeler,

Rush would want it said that the UNCW community was very special to our family, and there are doubtless still family friends there to this day.

I'm writing to notify the UNCW community of the passing of my father, James R. "Rush" Beeler, who taught French there from 1969 to 1991 and served as chairman of the Department of Modern Languages.

Rush was born in Pensacola, NC May 27, 1921, and grew up in Burnsville, NC. He attended Mars Hill College and then the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he earned a BA, MA and PhD in French and began a 40-odd-year teaching career, a career only interrupted by World War ll.

During the war, Rush served in the Army Air Corps Weather Division, and was stationed at the Pentagon. After he was discharged from the Army in 1946, Rush returned to Chapel Hill and earned his MA. He taught at UCLA from 1950 to 1953 and spent semesters studying at the Sorbonne in 1950 and 1952, during which time he struck up a friendship with sometime UNCW professor Claude Howell.

Rush returned to Chapel Hill in 1954, teaching French at UNC and “on loan” to NC Central University and working on his doctoral thesis. In 1961 he married Nancy Norman of Asheville, NC, a UNC graduate who was working as a medical secretary in the cardiology department of the UNC Medical School.

Rush earned his PhD in 1964 and took a position teaching at William & Mary, where he taught for five years, and where he and Nancy became the parents of a son, James R.B. Beeler, in 1965.

In 1969, the family moved to Wilmington, where Rush joined the faculty of the newly-minted University of North Carolina branch and was reunited with Claude Howell and fellow UNC alum and close friend Jack Sparks. Rush taught at UNCW for over twenty years and was conferred emeritus status upon his retirement in 1991. He and Nancy lived in the same house in Wilmington for 44 years until her death in 2013, after which he moved to New York to be closer to family.

Outside of the classroom and the Department, Rush was active in the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society, and served on the vestry at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. An avid reader all of his life, he brought home countless volumes from Randall Library book sales.

Rush loved teaching, and the study of French literature. When asked in recent years about his long career, he said he really didn’t deserve much credit for it because he enjoyed his work so.

Rush passed away January 24th, 2020 in Edison, NJ, and will be interred with Nancy at Christ Church, Greenville, SC. He is survived by his son James, daughter-in-law Annalisa Erba and granddaughter Lucia Erba-Beeler.

Thanks,
James R.B. Beeler
