Last board meeting for outgoing ECU Board of Trustees Chairman

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - The chair of the ECU Board of Trustees attended his last meeting Friday morning.

Kieran Shanahan has been on the board of trustees for the past eight years. During the last stretch of his tenure, Shanahan had a rocky relationship with the UNC Board of Governors over former Chancellor Dr. Cecil Staton leaving the university.

Despite the bumpy end to his role as the chair on the board, the ECU graduate says he has a special place in his heart for the Greenville university. Shanahan says he has been a small part of the university as a trustee and it has been a honor to serve both the faculty and students.

For the time being, Shanahan says he will be more involved in his fulltime job as a lawyer but will regroup and find a way to still be involved with ECU.
