Mitchell and Frye recognized

Two former Supreme Court justices were recognized. 

Burley Mitchell and Henry Frye received the state's highest honor: the North Carolina Award Tuesday night. They are the first two recipients who have been justices, Titan Barksdale reports.

Mitchell and Frye, who are now both in private practice, received the awards in the field of public service.

Mitchell joined the N.C. Supreme court in 1982 and served as Chief Justice from 1995 to 1999. Frye joined the North Carolina Supreme Court in 1983 and served as chief justice from 1999 to 2001. 

The North Carolina Awards have been given annually since 1964, and a committee selects the recipients. 

Also recognized: Rosemary Harris Ehle, the actress who plays Aunt May in the Spider-man movies.
