WILMINGTON -- UNCW athletes have a million reasons why they should be grateful to the CEO of PPD. Fred Eshelman gave the athletics department $1 million to support construction of a new academic center for student athletes. The money will help initiate plans for the building. It will house a computer lab, study space, tutoring area, locker rooms and offices. Eshelman founded PPD in 1985.
