Randolph Community College Board of Trustees Chairman Mac Sherrill and President Robert S. Shackleford Jr. presented an honorary Humanities degree to community leader Ann Hoover during the College’s 2014 graduation ceremony held May 14 at Providence Grove High School gymnasium.
“Ann Hoover has been a vital part of the new levels reached in recent years by the Randolph Community College Foundation,” said Shackleford during the presentation. “She is a tireless advocate for the College throughout the community and regularly attends College and Foundation events in her role as a Foundation board member.”
Shackleford noted that for the past five years, Hoover has served as co-chair for the planning committee for the Foundation’s Dancing with the Randolph Stars event, which has brought in more than $500,000 for student scholarships. “She has personally worked to secure a multitude of sponsorships, and the level to which she has reached out into the community to promote this event is unmatched,” he said.
Hoover has served as president of the RCC Foundation since July 2013, and was vice president from 2011-2013. She has been a member of the RCC Foundation Board of Directors since 2008.
