NCCAT Announces Board of Trustees Leadership Changes

The NCCAT Board of Trustees recently elected new leaders.

CULLOWHEE - The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching announces a new chairman and vice chairman to its Board of Trustees. The Board recently elected Dr. Cory S. Causby of Waynesville as chairman and Dr. Terry W. Worrell as vice chairwoman. The Board also thanked Dr. Aaron L. Fleming of Lillington and Jeffrey T. Clark of Jacksonville, former Board of Trustees’ chairman and vice chairman respectively, for their vital service to the Board.

The leadership changes were made during the Board of Trustees’ June 22nd meeting in Cullowhee. NCCAT Executive Director Dr. M. Brock Womble thanked Dr. Fleming and Mr. Clark for their many efforts in leadership positions on the Board and welcomed Dr. Causby and Dr. Worrell to their new roles.

"We are fortunate to have individuals like these, with a wealth of knowledge, who are willing to work actively for education in North Carolina with us," Womble said. "NCCAT thanks them all for their support and efforts for teachers in our state."

Dr. Causby, a 21-year veteran of the human resources and payroll offices at Western Carolina University, is the university’s associate vice chancellor for human resources. A Swain County native, Causby earned his bachelor’s degree in government and international studies at the University of South Carolina in 1994. He earned two graduate degrees, a master’s in human resources and a doctoral degree in educational leadership with a connection in higher education administration, at WCU in 2001 and 2010. He also holds a Professional in Human Resources Certification.

Dr. Worrell recently served as the superintendent of the Asheboro City Schools. She previously served as senior director for district services of North Carolina New Schools, superintendent of central region for Guilford County Schools, and assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction for Rockingham County Schools.
