ECU students hold event to show support for students at University of Missouri

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Around 100 ECU students gathered outside the Flanagan building Sunday to support students at the University of Missouri.

ECU students say it’s time to make change, rather than resorting to conversations over social media.

“We are here just to show support and let them know that we do stand here with them and we do support them and we know they are going through some troubles and hard times and we want to let them know that they will overcome these endeavors,” said TJ Blackmon.

Organizers say they were impressed with the turnout and plan to hold more events like this one in the future to support the students in Missouri.
