East Carolina University students in hospitality leadership collaborated with the Chancellor’s Council on the Status of Women to plan and execute the awards presentation for women of distinction April 8.

The students were members of ECU professor Dr. Alleah Crawford’s meeting and special events productions and delivery class. In preparation for their work this spring, the students took Dr. George Fenich’s meeting, event and convention planning course, in which they submitted proposals for planning an event. This spring the winning proposal was selected by the Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women.

The students were Nikki Seward, Kara Dough, Bobbie Whelan, Megan Bishop, Greyson Fesperman, Hannah Duffy, Jessica Eubanks, James Coker and Thomas Barber. Additional students in the College of Human Ecology volunteered to help out with the event.
