A special study space to make East Carolina University students feel more at home will open its doors on Tuesday.
That space is the newly renovated Janice Hardison Faulkner Gallery.
You may know Faulkner is considered a pioneering Pirate alumna. Faulkner was the first woman who served as Executive Director of the state's Democratic party. She went on to become the first female Secretary of State under Governor James Hunt in our state.
The former governor will be there on Tuesday as the ribbon is cut at the 3700 square foot gallery space at 5 p.m.
