Chancellor-elect David O. Belcher and his wife, Susan, discuss their experience and interests, from reading to music, as well as their excitement about becoming part of the WCU family.
His father was a pastor. His mother was a schoolteacher. And his wife was magician David Copperfield’s first onstage assistant. Those are just a few of the personal tidbits revealed Monday, April 11, by David O. Belcher, Western Carolina University’s chancellor-elect, in his inaugural public address to campus.
David O. Belcher will become chancellor of Western Carolina University in July, and his colleagues from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where he is currently provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs, and Missouri State University, where he worked for 15 years, say WCU is lucky to get him.
