DeLeon Carter Foundation Supports NCC Vet Tech Program


The Myrtle Carter Henry Scholarship was established at Nash Community College in 2015 by the DeLeon Carter Foundation to honor the memory of Myrtle Carter Henry. With the recent growth of the endowment, the DeLeon Carter Foundation has re-named the scholarship to reflect its support as the Myrtle Carter Henry Veterinary Technology Scholarship. The scholarship is available to students enrolled in the Nash Community College Veterinary Medical Technology program.

Since its partnership began in 2001 with the College, the Board of Directors have made an impact for the Nash/Rocky Mount area on campus through the Myrtle Carter Henry Amphitheater with a fountain and the digital marquee.

“The College continues to be good stewards of the DeLeon Carter Foundation’s investments. We extend our deepest appreciation to the Board for their vision, leadership, and financial resources provided to help develop a skilled workforce for the betterment of our community,” Nash Community College President Dr. Bill Carver said.
