Janet Spriggs named president of Forsyth Technical Community College

On October 19, 2018, the Forsyth Technical Community College Board of Trustees named Janet N. Spriggs, Ed.D the seventh president of the college, succeeding Gary Green, Ed.D who announced he would retire in February, following a 17 year career with the college.

Spriggs brings 22 years of service in the North Carolina Community College System, most recently serving as the Chief Operating Officer, and prior to that as the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. Additionally, she served as Vice President of Administrative Services & Chief Financial Officer of Carteret Community College.

Recently she was one of forty leaders selected from community colleges across the nation by The Aspen Institute for the 2018-2019 Aspen Presidential Fellowship for Community College Excellence. This program prepares the next generation of community college presidents to transform institutions to achieve high and equitable levels of student success both in college and in the labor market.

A native of North Carolina, Spriggs grew up in Milton, N.C, and attended both Rockingham Community College and Durham Technical Community College as a first generation student. She said this personal experience taught her how critically important access to higher education is for so many students.

“I have witnessed countless life-changing moments that illustrate the power of education to improve lives and indeed change the world, or at least our small corner of the world,” said Spriggs.

“I am committed to diversity and achieving a climate that promotes inclusion and treating everyone with respect. As a leader, I believe leaders are more effective when they lead from within rather than above and by influence instead of authority.”
