The future of North Carolina's community colleges depends on the quality and diversity of its future leaders. A statewide program called the North Carolina Community College Leadership Program (NCCCLP) was developed 19 years ago to provide leadership training to faculty and staff from the 58 institutions comprising the North Carolina Community College System as well as from the System Office. Sherida Gholston and Hunter Taylor from Halifax Community College (HCC) were recently selected to participate in NCCCLP's class of 2007-2008.

Gholston is the director of Student Support Services at HCC. She holds a bachelor's and master's degree from Virginia State University.

Taylor is a division chair at HCC as well as the department head for Automotive Systems Technology. He holds a certificate from HCC and an associate's degree from North Carolina State University.

Participants for the 2007-2008 program were selected through a competitive application process. They will attend workshops and seminars for the next six months covering topics such as diversity, conflict resolution, and leading through change. Gholston and Taylor will join 35 other participants, representing 34 North Carolina community colleges.


NCCCLP trains and develops future community college leaders and believes that quality leadership is important in all levels of community colleges and that excellence with equity can best be fostered through broad-based professional development opportunities offered to a diverse group.
