Trustee member resigns
(Aug. 18, 2000)
Henry G. Williamson of Winston-Salem, chief operating officer of BB&T Corp., has resigned from the East Carolina University Board of Trustees.
Williamson, who has been a member of the board since 1997, said he is stepping down for personal reasons. "I truly care about the university, and I am saddened to have to leave," he said. His replacement will be named by the University of North Carolina Board of Governors.
Phil Dixon, chair of the ECU board, said Williamson's resignation "is a terrible loss to us. We thank him for his wonderful service."
