Williams, a member of the 2010 PCC baseball team that reached the NJCAA World Series, finished 2-for-4 from the plate with three runs batted in and a run scored to propel the Pack to a 6-1 victory over East Carolina. Both of Williams' hits were doubles.
Herring Earns Academic Excellence Award
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College has selected Blake Herring, a member of the college’s student ambassador program and intercollegiate baseball team, as its recipient of the N.C. Community College System Academic Excellence Award.
Herring, a second-year university transfer student from Kinston, will receive his award when PCC recognizes 50 of its best and brightest students on March 22 in the Craig F. Goess Student Center.
Along with staff from the college’s Institutional Advancement Division, instructor Jeff Ramey nominated Herring for the award, which is presented annually to a top student from each of the state’s 58 community colleges in recognition of outstanding achievement in the classroom and volunteerism.
“Blake is a wonderful person and student,” Ramey said. “He is a shining example of the best of the PCC student body. He is so well-rounded in how he spends his time and life. He invests in others as a servant and maintains a very high level of academic excellence in all of his pursuits.”
