Dr. Sheri Noren Everts was elected chancellor of Appalachian State University by the Board of Governors of the 17-campus University of North Carolina during a special meeting of the board Wednesday, March 19. On March 20, the Appalachian Family welcomed her to our campus.
Chancellor Kenneth Peacock: Let me just say a word of thanks to the trustees for their wonderful leadership through this process. Many are here that served on the committee and these people worked long and hard in identifying the right person for Appalachian.
Chancellor-elect Dr. Sheri Noren Everts: Let me just thank you all for being here. This is a wonderful day for us. You have been so welcoming. You make us feel part of the App family already. You have so much to be proud of. The legacy you've built with Chancellor Peacock will provide the perfect strong foundation for further progress. I've heard many accolades about the caring and talented faculty at App State, from students and from administrators. So I just want to say for the faculty that are here, you are appreciated. And what you do and the contribution you make is so valuable for our students and alums and administrators. So thank you for that.
Welcome, Chancellor-elect Dr. Sheri Noren Everts
