Edgecombe County – Dr. Gregory McLeod Named President of Edgecombe Community College

The Watch Dog response: I remember Melvin Muhammad, Andre Knight and myself met with Edgecombe Community College when they were seeking a President before they hired Dr. Lamm. We were supporting a black male whom was a native of Rocky Mount at that time. Glad to see a black male become President. The other 2 finalist credentials were great also.

Dr. McLeod, 46, will begin his new post in mid-August.

For the past seven years, he has served in a senior leadership capacity as provost and chief campus administrative officer of academic and student affairs, first at the St. Augustine Campus of St. Johns River State College in Florida, and most recently at Thomas Nelson Community College in Williamsburg, Virginia.

At Thomas Nelson Community College, he also served as interim dean of health professions.

His senior management experience covers the scope of the community college landscape and includes instructional and student services programs, facilities, budgetary oversight, and technology resources.
