SALISBURY, N.C. — Quentin Woodward, Jr., a long-time supporter of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, was recently reappointed to the college’s board of trustees by the Rowan County Commission for a term of July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2017.

He currently serves as a member of the Rowan-Cabarrus Academic & Student Engagement Committee, Finance & Investment Committee, Personnel Committee and Building & Grounds Committee of the Board.
“Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is a vital part of Rowan and Cabarrus counties,” said Woodward.

Appointments to the Board of Trustees are liaisons to the pubic of the entire service area and not to the appointing entity. Once appointed, trustees are to carry out their duties as established by the General Statutes of North Carolina and the Board’s Bylaws and Policies. They are to carry out those responsibilities independent of concern for any group, organization, appointing board, or political entity other than the students, citizens of the service area, and the college.
