As you guys know, we’re ACC fans too and we follow the rest of the conference schools as much as we can.
There are sometimes some pretty remarkable stories - Clemson’s Bobby Conrad has become a highly respected judge, Maryland’s (and Arizona’s) Brian Williams changed his name to Bison Dele and sailed the Pacific until his untimely death, to the still inconceivable story of Muggsy Bogues, a 5-3 guard who had a long and incredible career in the NBA.
You could go on for a long time. You’d have to, too, to find a more unlikely and remarkable story than that of Lois “Peaches” Golding.
Golding grew up in Winston-Salem, attended UNC and became a cheerleader. After school she taught in Nigeria before moving to the U.K.
Recently Queen Elizabeth named her as the lord-lieutenant of the city and county of Bristol.
She is thought to be the first black lord-lieutenant in the U.K. and is surely one of the very few, if any, from the states.
It’s a really cool story.
And if you were wondering, yes, the Queen calls her Peaches.
