ETSU President Dr. Paul E. Stanton Jr. noted that the audit report “is a demonstration of the integrity and dedication of the board of directors and of ETSU personnel in the management of the private funds entrusted to the Foundation.”
And, Leslie Parks Pope of Kingsport, who chairs the ETSU Foundation’s board of directors, also commended the Foundation members for their steadfast support, especially during such challenging economic times.
