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. Gregory McLeod has been named the next president of Edgecombe Community College.

Dr. Gregory McLeod, a North Carolina native and 17-year veteran of community colleges, has been named the next president of Edgecombe Community College.

The Edgecombe Community College Board of Trustees selected Dr. McLeod to fill the position last month. State law requires that the board’s selection be approved by the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges, which occurred on Friday.

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.

“I am thrilled to join Edgecombe Community College and look forward to working with faculty and staff to continue to move the College forward,” Dr. McLeod says. “I strongly believe that ECC has incredible potential and a true opportunity to continue to achieve higher heights for the benefit of the citizens and family nearby in Raleigh and Garner, this is especially exciting for me personally as well as professionally.”

Dr. McLeod holds a Ph.D. in leadership and education from Barry University, an M.Ed. in training and development from North Carolina State University, a B.A. in education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a certificate in business management from N.C. State.

Students from all over have been in attendance, travelling from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Washington, D.C., South Carolina, Louisiana, Colorado, California, and many other areas of North Carolina as well.

 

For Colleges & Universities: We do understand that this has been a difficult time for many colleges and universities, but your participation is vital and will encourage and inspire the students in attendance to continue to strive for and secure a postsecondary education. It will support your efforts to recruit students who have a strong desire to attend your institution. Through its College Round-Up program, so far The Black Heritage Museum & Cultural Center has well helped over 2,000 students realize their dream of a postsecondary education.

 

Though they had the desire, for a number of reasons most were students who never thought that it would be possible for them to attend college.

 

There is no fee for your college or university to participate in this event, but we do ask that you waive your application fee for that day only and that there be representatives present from your institution’s admissions and financial aid departments with decision making authority. 

 

Our students will come prepared with transcripts and scores, and each year many are accepted on the spot. We would like for you to come to the College Round-Up prepared to make those types of decisions.

 

For Students: If you are thinking that college was out of the question or out of your reach, give it a little more thought.  Attend the College Round-Up event for an opportunity to meet face-to-face with college representatives who would like to help YOU find a way to get accepted into college.

 

You’ll have a chance to interact with colleges and universities as they make every effort to assist you with the application and financial aid processes needed to attend their institutions. 

 

If you are a senior, please bring multiple copies of your high school transcripts. Application fees are waived on the day of the event, at the event only, which means you can apply to, and possibly be accepted to, multiples colleges in one day. A number of the colleges and universities are offering scholarships and other financial assistance. 

 

Share this information with your parents or guardian, your school counselor, and your friends. Take this chance for yourself. Take a chance on yourself. Take advantage of this opportunity to get into college.

The College Round-Up program gives your child the opportunity to meet face-to-face with colleges and universities that are prepared to make every effort to assist students with the application and financial aid process needed to attend their institutions. Most importantly they hold the decision-making authority to admit students attending College Round-Up “on the spot”, Saturday, March 8, 2014.

We look forward to seeing you and your college bound student at the College Round-Up!

 

For High School Teachers, Counselors, and Administrators: School Officials play an important role in the success of our children’s postsecondary school access. At the College Round-Up we rely on the work of Guidance Counselors, Principals, Teachers, Superintendents in our efforts to assure that all children who want a chance to go to college has the opportunity.

 

We are inviting you to bring your students to the College Round-Up event on Saturday, March 14, 2015 beginning at 9:00 a.m. for programs and general onsite registration and check-in, (early onsite registration begins at 8:00 a.m.) at Edgecombe Community College’s Tarboro Campus located at 2009 West Wilson Street, Tarboro, North Carolina. The event ends at 3 p.m.

 

The College Round-Up is a program of the Education Division of The Black Heritage Museum & Cultural Center, Inc. and places its primary focus on assisting high school students who have felt that college was unattainable, or students who did not adequately prepare themselves (academically) for college but have a strong desire to attend.

 

The College Round-Up program provides “face-to-face interviews” with colleges and universities that are prepared to make every effort to assist students with the application and financial aid process needed to attend their institutions.  Representatives from admissions and financial aid departments have had tremendous success in placing students who have participated in the program. 

 

In addition to a prominent guest speaker and important community partners, career development professionals, mentors and counselors will be on hand throughout the day to assist students and families, in a positive environment, which we hope will facilitate and greatly improve their chance for acceptance into college or university.

 

We are asking that your school administration support the College Round-Up by making sure students, particularly Juniors and Seniors, are aware of this event. The benefits that students receive have been described as immeasurable. In fact, high school seniors have been accepted “on the spot” (when providing sufficient information to complete the admissions and financial aid process). For some students, this event has been described as an opportunity of a lifetime.

 

We strongly urge that high schools seniors bring multiple copies of their transcripts. The Colleges and Universities waive their application fees at the program only.  We also suggest that a parent or guardian attend the College Round-Up with their child in order everyone involved to have a clearer picture of the financial issues the students face.

 

When you accept our invitation to attend and participate in the College Round-Up event, you will receive additional details that will help your organization have a positive experience with us.

 

We look forward to seeing you in March of 2015!
