Daily Advance Editorial: Conway helped ensure ECSU’s turnaround continues
Chancellor Thomas Conway, left, announced his retirement effective May 31, 2018. Dr. Karrie Dixon will take over for her longtime friend and mentor as interim chancellor beginning June 1, 2018.

UNC President Margaret Spellings has praised Conway’s leadership on both developments.”
