"A Legacy Of Leadership"

East Carolina University

Almost a hundred years ago, what is now known as East Carolina University was founded. To mark the school's birthday, the university began Founder's Week today with a memorial service honoring former Governor Thomas Jordan Jarvis. The ceremony was held at Jarvis' grave site in Cherry Hill cemetery. Jarvis is known as the father of East Carolina University. The theme of Founder's Week this year at East Carolina University will be "A Legacy of Leadership."
