“I've attended and enjoyed every ACC Legends event,” said ACC Senior Associate Commissioner Nora Lynn Finch. “All of our ACC Legends, past and present, embody her alma mater's tradition of excellence.  Each one professes the exceptional opportunities afforded her while a student-athlete and is reinvesting those into herself and her profession.  We certainly appreciate our ACC Legends for what each gave to her alma mater back in the day and for how they represent us today.”
