GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — The president of the 17-campus University of North Carolina system is returning to his old high school.

UNC President Tom Ross meets Wednesday with students from across Guilford County at his alma mater Grimsley High.

Ross says his strong public education helped lay the foundation for success. He’s returning to Grimsley High to challenge student leaders to help their peers make the same connection.

The visit is part of the activities surrounding ceremonies around Ross’s formal inauguration as the University of North Carolina’s 17th president on Thursday.

Celebrations include a reception Wednesday at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, a collaborative project of North Carolina A&T State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
