Taylor’s four-year term on the Board will begin in July of this year.
“I am incredibly honored to serve on the ECU Women’s Roundtable Board of Directors and for the opportunity to work on these important initiatives with my fellow board members,” says Taylor. “I am thankful for all I learned while at ECU and grateful it’s finally my turn to give back to an institution that has meant so much to me.”
