Pressley Baird

I write about education for the StarNews in Wilmington, N.C.

I'm a UNC-Chapel Hill alum. I've worked for the Daily Tar Heel, the Charlotte Observer, the Dallas Morning News and the New York Times.

I like cheap books and college basketball. I think homemade dessert can fix any problem. If there's a dog in the room, I'm on the floor petting it.
