East Tennessee State University said its President, Brian Noland, has full range of motion and is expected to make a full recovery after being hurt in a car crash Monday evening.
ETSU said the Noland family is humbled by the outpouring of support but doesn't want any visitors at this time in order to give Dr. Noland time to rest and recuperate.
Instead, the public is encouraged to bring cards or letters to the Office of the President on the second floor of Dossett Hall. The university plans to deliver all well wishes to the Noland family.
