Speaker’s Statement on Thomas Stith Being Named the Next President of the N.C. Community College System

Raleigh, N.C. – Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released a statement Monday on the State Board of Community Colleges’ unanimous vote naming Thomas Stith as the next president of the North Carolina Community College System.

“North Carolinians are fortunate to have Thomas Stith at the helm of the state’s most vital workforce development pipeline, as few leaders have his experience to ensure this system meets the needs of our students and the demands of a growing private sector,” Speaker Moore said Monday.

“We are excited to build on the education and economic accomplishments already realized for North Carolina through Thomas’ service in state government, and working together we will continue to fulfill that promise in his new role.”
