ROCKY MOUNT — Natalie Brooks of Nashville has been appointed to the Nash Community College Board of Trustees.

Brooks is a retired elementary teacher who also served as an adult basic education instructor at NCC. She received a Nash County Board of Education appointment to the community college’s governing board.

“My earliest memory of Nash Technical College, renamed Nash Community College, and its positive impact on the people began with my father attending auto mechanic classes,” Brooks said. “I enrolled in continuing education classes to maintain my teaching licensure, and my mother took child care classes there to maintain her day care license. My daughter began her nursing career at Nash Community College.”

Brooks fills an unexpired term following Nash County Commissioner Mary Wells’ death.

Superior Court Judge Quentin T. Sumner administered her oath of office during the trustees’ Oct. 18 meeting.

“As a retired educator and longtime resident of Nash County, Ms. Brooks brings great perspective and a wealth of knowledge to our board,” NCC President Lew Hunnicutt said. “We look forward to her input and leadership as we seek to continue to reach current and prospective students and meet the training and educational needs of this community.”

Brooks earned a Bachelor of Science degree in early childhood education from Coppin State University and a master’s in elementary education from East Carolina University. She said she desires to serve at the community college in order to make a positive difference in the people of her community and in the surrounding areas.

“My appreciation for the positive impact of Nash Community College is authentic,” Brooks said. “I relish nothing more than to work collaboratively with other like-minded individuals to create educational, professional and career opportunities for the citizens of Nash and Rocky Mount.”
