RALEIGH–Members of the State Board of Community Colleges selected Greenville’s Scott Shook this month to serve as their chair for the next two years.

A financial advisor with BB&T Scott and Stringfellow, Shook is an appointee of Gov. Pat McCrory and has been a board member for the past two years. In addition to his role as chairman, Shook will continue serving on the State Board’s Accounting and Audit, Finance and Presidential Search committees.

“The North Carolina Community College System is the largest, most comprehensive higher education system in our state and a leader nationally,” Shook said. “It is an honor to serve as chair with this dynamic group of board members, all of whom have a passion for our students, our colleges and North Carolina.”

Shook, who represents a 20-county region in the northeastern part of the state, began serving on the board in July 2013. His term runs through June 30, 2019.
A Raleigh native, Shook graduated from East Carolina University in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in economics.

In a more than 20-year financial services career, Shook has worked as a financial advisor, personal banker, branch manager and city executive. He also volunteers with a number of community organizations.

In addition to Shook’s selection as chairman, the State Board welcomed six new members, including Raleigh’s James “Jim” Rose, who completed a GED at Pitt Community College before earning a bachelor’s degree in economics from Wake Forest University. His son, Jake, graduated from PCC in 2013 with an associate degree in Criminal Justice Technology.

Since January of 1981, the 21-member State Board of Community Colleges has served as the governing authority for the nation’s third-largest system of community colleges.
