ECU's HHP hosts Centennial leadership forum
(Feb. 22, 2008) — East Carolina University’s College of Health and Human Performance recognized more than 80 of its alumni and other leaders Feb. 22 at a Centennial Leadership Forum.
Dr. Glen Gilbert, dean of ECU’s College of Health and Human Performance, said it is fitting that – nearly 100 years after the first class entered East Carolina in 1909 – that the study of fitness and personal health is still a key area of focus.
“I think the early students of ECU would be pleased to see the growth of Health and Human Performance, and the recognition of good health, as a foundation of this institution,” Gilbert said.
The daylong leadership forum featured many of the college’s students, alumni and faculty members. Among them, the keynote speakers were: Trenton Davis, ECU professor emeritus of environmental health; Richard Eakin, chancellor emeritus ECU; Reggie Edgerton, distinguished professor of physiological science and neurobiology sciences, University of California Los Angeles; Nancy Mize, ECU assistant vice chancellor for Campus Recreation and Wellness; and Jo Morgan, health education director for Pitt County Health Department.
More than 80 leaders from the college’s advancement council and departments: Recreation and Leisure Services; Health Education and Promotion; and Exercise and Sport Science participated in breakout sessions with ECU faculty and students during the afternoon.
The leadership forum was followed by a gala celebration at the Greenville Hilton with 300 students, faculty, and friends of the College of Health and Human Performance.
