KANNAPOLIS — Daryl Cox, of Salisbury, has been reappointed to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s board of trustees.

Cox was recently reappointed by the Rowan County Board of Commissioners to serve on the board through 2020.

“Rowan-Cabarrus is vital to Rowan and Cabarrus counties in the advancement of our workforce and the enrichment of our communities,” said Cox. “Working together, we can continue to make our community an even better place in which to live and work.”

Cox has served as a Rowan-Cabarrus trustee since 2012 and his new term will expire in June 2020. He currently serves on the academic and student engagement, building and grounds and finance and investment committees of the board.

“I am pleased that Daryl will continue to serve as a trustee. He brings a wealth of expertise and has provided enormous insight to the work of the college,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College and secretary of the college’s board of trustees.

Cox is a longtime resident of Salisbury, and retired from the Division of Employment Security. Cox, originally from Knoxville, Tenn., moved to North Carolina in 1973 to attend Pfeiffer University. He has nine years of Information Technology experience beginning as a project officer for Y2K compliance with the military. He retired with 35 years combined enlisted and officer experience from the North Carolina Air National Guard with the rank of Captain. He is also a past chairman of the Headquarters and Employees Committee, North Carolina Air National Guard.

Cox holds bachelor of science degrees in social studies and secondary education, as well as a master’s in business administration and health administration from Pfeiffer University. He also serves as a small group facilitator for his church and sings in the choir.

“Rowan-Cabarrus is excited to have Daryl repointed to the board. I know that he will continue to be a valuable asset to the college in its stated mission ‘to build sustainable futures through the power of learning,’” said Carl M. Short, chairman of the Rowan-Cabarrus board of trustees.

Board of trustees members are liaisons to the college’s entire service area. Once appointed, trustees are responsible for carrying out their duties as established by the General Statutes of North Carolina and the board’s bylaws and policies independent of concern for any group, organization, appointing board or political entity other than the students, citizens of the service area and the college.

“Our trustees are accomplished and dedicated. They’ve all been involved extensively in our community, and work well together to help create the future of the college,” said Spalding.
