WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College university transfer student La'Quon Rogers was sworn-in this month as an ex-officio member of the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges.

As president of the N.C. Comprehensive Community College Student Government Association, Rogers will represent community college students statewide as a non-voting member of the State Board during the 2014-15 academic year. He took the oath of office from N.C. Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jackson during the board’s July 18 meeting in Raleigh.

Rogers, an Ayden native, recorded a 3.51 grade point average at PCC while serving as SGA president and a PCC Student Ambassador. He has been a Dean’s List student each semester he has been enrolled at Pitt and served as a marshal during graduation in May.

An active member and associate minister at Little Creek Free Will Baptist Church, Rogers is the son of Tremayne Rogers and Alisa Barrett and the grandson of Frankie and Julia Rogers. He is on track to graduate from Pitt in 2015 and plans to transfer to ECU and ultimately pursue an MBA and law degree.
