Greenville Councilman Max Joyner Jr., along with four others, will be sworn in Thursday to the East Carolina University Board of Trustees.
Joyner, who did not file for re-election to the City Council, said he was proud to have an opportunity to serve on the board and to have a chance to follow in his father’s footsteps.
“My daddy was on the board from 1984 to 1992 and was also chairman,” Joyner said. “Any time I can do something my father did, I’ll do it. I’m trying to walk in his footsteps a little bit. I’ve always had a lot of respect for him.”
