The Western Carolina University Board of Trustees approved a resolution in support of a rapid conclusion to a months-long impasse between the General Assembly and Gov. Roy Cooper that has tied up salary increases for faculty and staff, delayed funding for a replacement to WCU’s aging steam plant and forced university officials to consider slowing enrollment growth.
The changes allow the service of beer and wine in the Catamount Corner section of E.J. Whitmire Stadium through the end of the third quarter of home football games if food also is available during the same time.
The board also paid tribute to three of its members whose terms are expiring – Patricia B. Kaemmerling, Wardell Townsend and Grace Battle – and welcomed SGA President David Rhode as an ex-officio member.
