ECC Trustee Honored
The four-year term of Tarboro resident Betty Jo Shepheard ends this month on the Edgecombe Community College Board of Trustees. Appointed to the board in 2016 by former Gov. Pat McCrory, Shepheard is the Eastern Representative for U.S. Senator Richard Burr. College trustees and employees honored Shepheard during a June 4 board meeting. Among other contributions, she served as a member of the board’s Personnel Committee.

Social distancing practices were followed during the in-person meeting, and several members participated virtually.
