The Greensboro Bar Association’s 2022 Centennial Award for outstanding and exemplary community service was presented to Michael S. Fox at the annual member meeting on April 20, 2023 at Starmount Forest Country Club. Colleague Nathan Duggins made the presentation.
Michael is well deserving of this award. The award “recognizes outstanding and exemplary community service.” Mike has been a partner at Tuggle Duggins for many years. He has served his community and state in several capacities: as a member of the Greensboro Planning Board, a graduate of Leadership Greensboro, the Salvation Army/Boys and Girls Clubs Board, and One Step Further. He currently serves as leader of the Piedmont Triad Partnership (a regional economic development group) (past president and current CEO). He is a past member of the USS North Carolina Battleship Commission. He currently serves as a board member of the North Carolina Railroad. His most visible achievement is his current service as Chair of the North Carolina Dept. of Transportation’s Board of Transportation. In March of 2017, Mike was appointed by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper to become Chair of the DOT board, meaning he has responsibility overseeing an agency that employs 10,000+ employees and has an annual budget in excess of $5.0 billion.
We are pleased to recognize Mike for his dedicated service to the community and his commitment to making it a better place for all.
