The chair of the East Carolina Alumni Association Board of Directors has returned for a second term. Glenda Palmer Moultrie ’79 of Derwood, Maryland began her second year as chair on July 1, along with the rest of the executive committee. Moultrie graduated from East Carolina University in 1979 with a bachelor of science in therapeutic recreation. She is the owner of L&L Travel and Tours. As chair, Moultrie will lead an organization that serves more than 165,000 East Carolina alumni worldwide.
“I am honored to serve another term as chair. Serving another term will enable our board to finalize some loose ends from the past year and continue our vision moving forward in the years ahead,” Moultrie said. “I would like to thank everyone for supporting our board of directors. Know that my commitment to our Pirate nation runs deep. I am forever a Pirate!”
Moultrie and the board plan to continue their work engaging students and young alumni, along with expanding regional chapters and affinity groups. “If we weren’t blessed to have dedicated alumni around the country engaging other alumni in their area, our association could not grow,” she said.
“I am honored to have Glenda return for a second term as chair,” Heath Bowman, associate vice chancellor for alumni relations, said. “Over the past nine months, I have been fortunate to work closely with Glenda and to observe her steady and confident leadership of our association. As we prepare to undertake new and exciting projects in the coming year, I know that the entire Pirate alumni family will benefit from Glenda’s veteran leadership at the helm.”
The rest of the executive committee also will remain for another year. John Israel ’82 of Norfolk, Virginia will serve as vice chair. Oliver “Tim” Willis ’12 of Durham will serve as treasurer. Mark Garner ’77 of Greenville will serve as secretary.
Joining the board as new members are Crystal Dailey ’97, ’03 of Frederick, Maryland, Ron Hinton III ’14 of Raleigh and Sarah Proctor ’04 of Wilmington.
