My condolences goes out to the family of Robert (Bob) Whitehead Tarboro, NC.

I remember several years ago I began receiving calls from Bob while he was still living in Atlanta. He was concerned about what was going on in Edgecombe County. He knew I was very active in the community. He would also ask me about my uncle Leroy Dancy.

I remember when Bob came to town to do the College Round-Up holding the 1st one at Tarboro High School with Rev. Clifton Davis as the featured Speaker. It was awesome! And then I remember when Judge Glenda Hatchett was the featured speaker however this time it was at Edgecombe Community College. The College Round-up got more awesome over the years.

When Bob moved back home to Tarboro he organized a Thanksgiving Homeless Meal at Tarboro High School and it brought the Edgecombe County residents together.

See pictures of several events featuring the College Round-up and the Project Thanksgiving Meal.
