Martin University has named Algeania Freeman to replace its founding president, Boniface Hardin, who is retiring.
The school, the state’s only predominately African-American institution, made the announcement this morning.
Freeman, 58, founded The Freeman Group Inc., a contractual consulting company. She also served as president of Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C., from 2001 to 2004.
She will take over for Hardin, 74, at the start of the year.
