Dr. Ross Honored For ECU Dental School Donation

A Greenville orthodontist usually puts a smile on others faces, but Wednesday, ECU students got to put one on his face.

Dr. Ledyard Ross was recognized by the ECU student government for his 4-million dollar donation to help in the building of the future dental school at East Carolina University.

Dr. Ross, an ECU graduate, was presented a plaque in gratitude for his donation.

The ECU Dental School is planning to accept its first students in the fall semester of 2011, and is expected to accept around 50 students per year.

    Agreed Anonymous. UNC people don't realize that Eastern NC folks are still North Carolinians. They only recognize wealth and social status, and Sperry's, and instead of trying to help all NC people they just want to block ECU from doing anything UNC is already doing, regardless of who it would benefit. I don't see the fun in being snooty and uppity all the time; makes for a sour attitude and a poor outlook on YOUR OWN STATE! I mean really UNC, we're trying to put out nurses and dentists that would help the residents of this half of the state but all you see is "They're trying to copy us, we must stop them! Vote NO for anything ECU!" Then they try and label ECU as EZU, when they're the ones dealing the cards! It's kinda like a pick-up game of basketball and I pick LeBron, Kobe, D-Wade, Shaq and Carmelo, and you get five kids in high school who are all under 6 ft tall, and then I shout "You suck!" in your face. Well yeah, this is how you wanted it remember?

    I hope ECU puts out some dentists that do not take classes in ATTITUDE like UNC-Chapel Hill does.
