Welcome to Talk Like a Pirate’s #PirateVoices series, where we showcase East Carolina University’s diversity by amplifying Pirates’ personal stories of searching, seeking treasure and chasing purpose.
ECU’s official podcast, Talk Like a Pirate, explores various topics related to current happenings on campus, across the nation and around the globe. Hosted by ECU News Services’ Rich Klindworth, TLaP began Sept. 19, 2019, on International Talk Like A Pirate Day.
PAYING IT FORWARD
In this episode of Pirate Voices, ECU alumnus Timothy Gomez shares an emotional story of how a professor “protected” him. Gomez never forgot that. When he became successful, he endowed a scholarship to help students like himself. And it was all in honor of his beloved professor — Barry DuVall.
