Call to Order

Chair McCall called the meeting to order at 9:00 a.m.  He welcomed all present and delivered an invocation.    He congratulated Mr. Kirk McSwain on his new job with the City of Charlotte and thanked him for his four years of employment at Winthrop as the assistant to the Chief of Staff and Board of Trustees.  Kirk worked closely with Trustees over the years and he will be sorely missed.  Chair McCall introduced Leigh Crain as Mr. McSwain’s replacement.  Mrs. Crain was most recently the House Manager for the President’s House.  Now, Mrs. Crain will combine her duties of House Manager with those of assistant to the Chief of Staff and Board of Trustees.
