Five New Members to Join Trustees

The 13-member UNC Board of Trustees will have five new members in July.

Phillip Clay ’68, Alston Gardner ’77 and Sallie Shuping-Russell ’77 are leaving the board after serving two terms. For their seats, the UNC System Board of Governors has appointed Julia Sprunt Grumbles ’75, William A. Keyes ’75 and Allie Ray McCullen ’67 to four-year terms.

Two other sitting members — Peter Grauer ’68 and Steven Lerner ’80 (MA, ’83 PhD) — each have completed one four-year term and are leaving the board. Taking their places are Ed McMahan ’66 and Hari Nath, both appointed by Gov. Pat McCrory.

The new student body president, senior Houston Summers, was sworn in for his term on the board at the beginning of May’s meeting, officially taking over that role from Andrew Powell ’15.

A nominating committee chosen from within the board has picked Dwight Stone ’73 as the board’s new chair and Haywood Cochrane ’70 as vice chair. The full board will vote on those nominations when it meets in July.

Grumbles, of Chapel Hill, is a former corporate vice president of human resources, public relations and marketing with Turner Broadcasting. She co-chaired the Women’s Leadership Council for the Carolina First campaign, and she recently served as interim vice chancellor for University development.

Keyes, of McLean, Va., is president of the Institute for Responsible Leadership, which works through colleges and universities to help African-American men use their talents to serve others.

McCullen, of Clinton, is a real estate developer and appraiser.

McMahan, of Charlotte, is president and CEO of Little-McMahan Group and vice chair of LITTLE, Diversified Architectural Consulting. He is a former member of the N.C. General Assembly and a former member of the GAA Board of Directors.

Nath, of Cary, is the founder of Technology Planning and Management Corp., where he was CEO until 2001.

McMahan and Nath are current members of the Board of Governors; their terms there are expiring.
