It would be the state’s first.

A state senator in North Carolina is seeking $2.1 million to establish an optometry school at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

Sen. Danny Britt is sponsoring a bill that would transfer the money to UNC’s Board of Governors for fiscal 2017-18, the Robesonian reports.
