Former ECU Chancellor Eakin Honored

Former East Carolina University chancellor Richard Eakin has received a big honor. He now has a professorship in his name.

People gathered at the ECU college of nursing to see the professor receive the honor. The Spangler Foundation made the one-million-dollar endowment possible. Eakin was grateful for the recognition.

The professorship will help hire a researcher who will try and help improve the health of the people in eastern North Carolina.
