A Narrative History of the North Carolina Association of Community College Trustees.
Wiggs, Jon L.; Wiggs, Caroline M.
The North Carolina Association of Community College Trustees (NCACCT) is a private nonprofit corporation founded to assist in furthering the aims, goals and development of North Carolina's community colleges. The Associations' stated purpose is to "improve and expand the opportunities and resources available to the people of North Carolina for public post-high school industrial, technical and academic education". The Association was incorporated as the North Carolina Association of Community Educational Institutions on February 13, 1968. The nine original directors were: Paul H. Thompson of Fayetteville; Dr. Robert Lee Humber of Greenville; James W. Pierce of Burlington; James H. Atkins of Gastonia; John M. Barnes of Arden; Dr. Jesse C. Fisher of Whiteville; Robert R. Smoak of Wilkesboro; H. Clifton Blue of Aberdeen; and Robert L. Taylor of Charlotte. The primary source for this narrative history was the association's minutes since 1966. Other sources were files and notes from previous research; interviews with Helen B. Dowdy, the NCACCT's executive director; and interviews with Dr. Ben E. Fountain, Jr., former state president of the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges. (KP)
