Kitty H. Wetherington, who has served as interim university attorney at East Carolina University since March, has been named university attorney, effective immediately.
Chancellor Steve Ballard said, “Kitty Wetherington has done a superb job in the interim role over the last nine months. She has handled a number of difficult issues with great skill and insight, and I have frequently relied on her advice and counsel.
In addition, she was the unanimous choice of the search committee for this role, and I am delighted she has accepted this position.”
Wetherington said, “I am honored to have this opportunity to serve East Carolina. I have loved the university for years, and to be a part of its future is tremendously exciting to me.”
