Amy Jackson-Kincaid Elected to Statewide Community College Trustees’ Executive Board


Amy Jackson-Kincaid, a trustee at Western Piedmont Community College, has been elected to the Executive Board of the North Carolina Association of Community College Trustees (NCACCT). She will serve a four-year term, beginning July 1.

NCACCT is the professional association for the approximately 800 trustees from the 58 community colleges across the state. The association focuses on three main areas — legislative advocacy, trustee training, and collaboration/communication with other community college partners, including the State Board of Community Colleges, community college Presidents and the NC Community College system office. The association holds statewide education opportunities for trustees and supports budget priorities for the community college system during sessions of the NC General Assembly.

The 18-member Executive Board for the NCACCT guides the work of the association and develops goals and strategies for assisting trustees to have the tools and information they need to lead their colleges effectively.

In his nomination letter, Western Piedmont Community College’s Board Chairman Rod Harrelson said Kincaid has been instrumental in helping WPCC navigate through challenging times and achieve significant milestones. “Her two-year term as Board Chair was marked by her ability to foster collaboration, set clear objectives, and make tough decisions necessary,” Harrelson stated in the letter. “Under her leadership, WPCC made tremendous progress in advancing its mission of providing accessible, high-quality education to our community.”

Julie Woodson, NCACCT President/CEO, said Kincaid has a strong background a big heart for our community colleges. “We look forward to Amy serving on the NCACCT Executive Board. She has participated in training opportunities offered by the NCACCT for several years, and she is well-respected by her fellow trustees across the state. She will be an asset to the Board.”
