The ECU Staff Senate was pleased to be an instrumental part of the UNC Chancellors’ Cup Golf Tournament held on June 18, 2014. Enthusiasm was high despite the high temperature! As a representative of ECU at Hole #2, we were actively seeking a Hole In One  on the Lonnie Poole Golf Course. The shotmaker for this prize would have won $10,000 cash and $5,000 for the UNC Staff Assembly Scholarship Fund. Much to our dismay, none of the UNC teams were able to deliver a Hole In One at Hole #2.

All proceeds benefit the Janet B. Royster Memorial Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarship(s) to full-time, permanent non-faculty employees who are taking either undergraduate or graduate level courses at an accredited institution of higher education, or enrolled in approved – short courses, licensure, certificate or continuing education programs that supports staff development. The Fund has been established in memory of Janet B. Royster, a UNC-TV employee who provided important leadership, knowledge and dedication of the UNC Staff Assembly where she served as its first Parliamentarian until her untimely death in June 2011.

The intent of the scholarship is to cover the out-of-pocket expenses for one undergraduate or graduate course per year (tuition, fees, books) to a non-faculty employee after eligibility for tuition free course is exhausted, or for a short-term professional development program as noted above.

Help us reach our $50,000 goal to endow our scholarship and begin awarding funds to deserving staff across the state of NC. Would you like to make a difference? Donate online or send a donation via mail.

Thanks again to our sponsors and everyone that made the UNC Chancellors’ Golf Tournament a success!
