After two terms as Department Chair, Dr. David Zeigler will be stepping down from the position this June. Dr. Zeigler has managed the largest biology faculty in UNCP history and has ushered in several new faculty positions in the Department.
Taking time from a busy week of final exams, members of the Biology faculty and staff enjoyed a pot-luck luncheon to celebrate Dr. Zeigler's service to the Department. Dr. Velinda Woriax will be assuming the Chair's position this summer.
Dr. Zeigler will continue to teach in Department. Over the last five years, he has taught nine different courses, ranging from introductory to graduate level. This summer his third book is due to be published.
