“BCC has an exceptionally bright future. We have new programs, facilities, partnerships and initiatives moving forward,” Adams shared. “The College also has talented, seasoned faculty and staff who are committed to our community and to student success. They are invested in continuing to carry forward the mission of the institution.”

Adams also serves on the Community in Schools of Brunswick County Board of Directors, Novant Health Board of Directors, as a Shallotte Rotary member, member of Camp United Methodist Church and officer in the North Carolina Association of Community College Presidents (NCACCP).

“I look forward to traveling and spending time with my husband, Tom, children and grandchildren.”

Brunswick Community College’s mission is to provide opportunities for individuals to be successful through accessible, high quality, student-centered programs and services that meet the educational, cultural and workforce needs of a diverse community.
