Dr Marchant and text Citizen of the Year

Dr. T.E. "Bud" Marchant, president of Central Carolina Community College since 2008, has been selected as The Sanford Herald's 2013 Citizen of the Year.

"He has been a valued ambassador of the college in spreading the word of its mission to stakeholders in all three counties that the college serves - Lee, Chatham and Harnett counties," said The Herald's Editorial Board, which selected him. "Perhaps his greatest accomplishment, however, is that under his leadership the school has flourished as perhaps our area's greatest economic development tool, despite the challenges of the economic times. The Herald salutes Dr. Marchant and thanks him for his service to our community."
