COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A retirement event honoring Peggy Yoder Blackmon was held on Jan. 15 in recognition of her 31 years of service to Southeastern Community College. During this time, Blackmon served as dean of nursing and was a teacher, mentor and advocate for innumerable nursing students and instructors as well.
She retired with the title dean of allied health and technologies, as her duties over the past few years had increased.
“Whether taking care of her own family or her Southeastern family, Peggy seems to always be tending to the needs of others,” SCC President Kathy Matlock said at the event. “That nurturing spirit, along with her background, has enabled her to relate so well to the students we serve.”
