A Beaufort businessman has been appointed to the NC State board of trustees.
Randy Ramsey will join the university's board amid a federal investigation that has requested details of former first lady Mary Easley's past job on campus.
Ramsey is president and CEO of Jarrett Bay Yacht Sales.
Governor Beverly Perdue also reappointed Norris Tolson to the board.
The former chairman of the trustees board, McQueen Campbell, resigned last month amid questions over his role in Easley's hiring.
