FSU Names New Chancellor

— History was made Friday in Fayetteville.

The University of North Carolina system got its first female African-American chancellor.

Dr. T.J. Bryan was sworn in as the leader at Fayetteville State University. She had been acting chancellor since July.

Bryan was brought in after a damaging audit on FSU's bookkeeping.

Supporters said Bryan already has taken steps to clean up the school's finances and has a vision to improve FSU academically.
