Pieces of Eight


CELEBRATING THE SEASON: Chancellor Steve Ballard and his wife Nancy opened the doors of the Chancellor’s Residence on East Fifth Street to East Carolina University faculty and staff on Dec. 3 for a traditional Holiday Open House celebration. Visitors began lining up just before 2 p.m. to meet with the chancellor and his wife, chat with colleagues, enjoy the decorations and sample a delicious spread of treats. Above, English professor Jan Tovey, chair of the faculty, shares a few moments with the Ballards. (Photo by Cliff Hollis)
