A memorial service next week will honor longtime ECU steam plant supervisor Del Kingsland, who died July 13. The service will be held at 3 p.m. July 27 in the Willis Building.
Kingsland was an award-winning employee with nearly 20 years of service, a member of the ECU Staff Senate and an active member of ECU’s District 65 of the State Employees Association of North Carolina. He was responsible for the supervision and oversight of the main campus steam plant, an 8,000-square-foot facility that feeds steam to nearly every building on campus for heating, cooking, hot water and humidity requirements.
He was among the recipients of the Chancellor’s Synergy Award for excellence in team efforts in 2006, 2001 and 1999. In 2004, he was awarded the Facilities Services Supervisors Award.
Kingsland joined SEANC in 1992, serving in a number of leadership roles including vice chair, EMPAC chair and finally, chair of the organization. Under his leadership, the district twice won District of the Year awards.
