Hargrave’s family has deep ties to the university and counts 18 members who attended or graduated from ECU, beginning with Hargrave’s grandparents

Hargrave graduated from ECU with honors in 1977, majoring in speech and sociology. He earned a law degree at the University of Oklahoma in 1980 and began practicing law.
