First in Future: Kel Landis in memoriam

Summary: North Carolina lost a really important citizen, Kel Landis. Kel was a North Carolina zealot. Someone who lived a life where, as our farmers would say, he “plowed to the end of the row.” He was, in a very real way, a doer. He was CEO of Centura Bank, cofounded the Foundation of Renewal for Eastern North Carolina, Trustee of UNC Chapel Hill and ECSU, NC Community Foundation, and Golden LEAF Foundation.
We wanted to replay our First in Future interview we did with him on UNCTV back in October 2017. In it we focused on his life, his thoughts about the future of small town North Carolina, and on a book he had just written. He called it “The Little Book of Do.”
