FMU Board of Trustees installs new leadership
Francis Marion University’s Board of Trustees installed new leadership for the board at its most recent meeting.
Robert E. Lee, an attorney from Marion, S.C. assumed the position of chairman of the
Board of Trustees, Dr. H. Randall Dozier of Georgetown, S.C. is the new vice chairman, and Floyd L. Keels of Kingstree, S.C. is the new secretary.
Dr. Fred Carter, FMU’s president, says the new leadership is a fine fit for the FMU board.
“Robert was the chairman during my first four years at FMU,” says Carter. “He’s a superb leader and a dear friend. And Randy and Floyd are among our very finest board members. This is an appropriate group to lead the best university board of trustees in the state.”
Lee formerly served as the board’s chairman from 1999 to 2003. He has served on the board since 1998.
Dozier is the superintendent of the Georgetown County School District. He has served on the board beginning in 1991 until 2000 and rejoined in 2002 and served as the board’s chairman from 2011 to 2014.
Keels is the former president and chief executive officer of Santee Electric Cooperative, Inc. in Kingstree. He has served on the board since 2013.
Lee, Dozier and Keels are beginning three-year terms as the board’s leadership.
