The Board of Trustees at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro today elected new officers for the 2014-15 academic year and welcomed two new board members.

Susan Safran, who previously served as vice chair, was elected board chair. Safran, who received a bachelor’s of science degree in nursing from UNCG, also serves on the Athletics Committee. She is the founder and former owner of CPR Consultants Inc., an American Heart Association training center in Raleigh.

Other board members elected as officers are: Linda Carlisle, vice chair; Ward Russell, secretary; Charles Blackmon, executive committee member; and Frances Bullock, executive committee member.

In addition to electing new officers, the board welcomed Brad Hayes and Simone Stephens as new members.

Hayes, who recently retired as executive vice president and chief financial officer for LabCorp in Burlington, joined the board and assumed the unexpired term of Martin Weissburg through June 30, 2015. A UNCG graduate, Hayes was honored in 2013 with the Bryan School of Business & Economics Distinguished Alumni Award.

Stephens, a senior from Spotsylvania, Va., was elected by the student body as UNCG’s Student Government Association president. She will serve a one-year term as a voting board member.

“On behalf of the Board of Trustees and our faculty, staff and students at UNCG, we are pleased to welcome Brad Hayes and Simone Stephens to the board. We look forward to working with them and the entire board to advance UNCG’s success as a leading public university in North Carolina,” said Board Chair Susan Safran.

Standing apart from other universities, the UNCG community is joined together by a shared value: We define excellence not only by the people we attract, but by the meaningful contributions they make.
