Everett J. Bowman has received the 2014 Catalyst Award from The North Carolina League of Conservation Voters. The award recognizes leaders who have taken exceptional action to create change and bring attention to important environmental issues.
“We recognize Everett for his ongoing commitment to NCLCV, national LCV, and more importantly, the state of North Carolina’s environment. He cares deeply about the environment and paddles our North Carolina waterways,” said Carrie Clark, executive director of NCLCV. “Everett believes we need to take responsibility locally and globally to protect our world for future generations.”

We owe it to future generations, and other species whose fate is in our hands, to elect legislators – whatever their political party or affiliation – who will advance these goals,” said Bowman.
Past Catalyst Award recipients include Gov. James B. Hunt, Attorney General Roy Cooper, Congressman G.K. Butterfield and journalist Sue Sturgis from the Institute for Southern Studies.
