asset, said Board Chairman

said. "These are positive appointments
and I think they will
carry on that tradition."
The new appointments are:
Wilma L. Lass iter, a former
WSSU professor and J. Edgar
Broyhill II, owner of the Edgar
B. Furniture Co., both appointed
by Gov. James G. Martin; and
Mickey W. Dry, senior vice
president/group executive at
Wachovia Bank and Trust Co.,
appointed by the University of
North Carolina Board of Goiter?

Chancellor Cleon F. Thompson

appointments will be positive, aiding
that they will help maintain '
the blend of the corporate community

that the board needs.
