Legislature elects 2 to NC community college board

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina legislators have named two business executives to the governing panel over the state's 58 community colleges.


The House and Senate voted separately Thursday to elect Edward Raye of Marshville and Will Collins or Raleigh to the State Board of Community Colleges. Each term is for six years.


Collins is a vice president for a Durham-based automotive parts maker and has served on community college foundation boards.


He received more votes than Ken Dull of Wrightsville Beach in the House election.


Raye was the only Senate candidate nominated. He is CEO of a commercial piping company and also owns a farm. He's a former trustee board chairman of South Piedmont Community College.


The General Assembly elects eight of the state board's 21 members.
