Dr. Deborah L. Lamm, president of Edgecombe Community College, has been selected to receive the I.E. Ready Distinguished Leader Award for 2011 from the College of Education at N.C. State University.
The award is given annually to a leader who has rendered distinguished service in the community college sector, has been an innovator in the community college system, has had a positive impact on the regional community and has provided support for the initiatives of the Department of Leadership, Policy and Adult and Higher Education in the College of Education.
She will receive the I.E. Ready Distinguished Leader award during commencement at N.C. State on May 14.
Lamm completed the doctoral program in higher education administration at N.C. State in 2003. Since then, her “leadership has been noteworthy,” said Carol Kasworm, W. Dallas Herring Professor at N.C. State.
“To receive a leadership award from my colleagues at N.C. State is a very special honor for me,” Lamm said. “My experiences in the higher education administration program there helped prepare me for my current position as president of Edgecombe Community College. Classes in leadership, programming, community college issues, and the presidency enabled me to build a valuable knowledge base while learning from content experts in the field. Without a doubt, my degree from N.C. State and my workplace experiences have contributed to my success.”
