UNC elects new chancellor for Appalachian State
Question of the Day
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - The woman who has been provost at Illinois State University since 2008 now is the chancellor of Appalachian State University.
Officials with the 17-campus University of North Carolina system said in a news release that the UNC Board of Governors voted Wednesday to elect Sheri Noren Everts as the next chancellor of the university in Boone. Noren Everts also was the vice president for academic affairs at Illinois State, which is one of 12 public universities in Illinois.
She will assume her new position July 1. UNC President Tom Ross says Noren Everts is an energetic and effective leader with a reputation for integrity and sound judgment.
Outgoing Chancellor Kenneth Peacock announced in April that he would step down this year after nine years on the job.
