The college’s first Preservation Trades School was held in 2008
on the grounds of Coolmore Plantation, a National Historic
Landmark near Tarboro. Part of the paint demonstration was

of sandstone believed to be the original color of Coolmore.

Lamm apply the first strokes of the new color.

        ustainability is a lens through which increasing numbers of community college and other higher education institutions are examining
        shared ecological, social, and economic world systems. Sustainability is being integrated into community colleges’ missions and planning,
        curricula, student life, operations and purchasing, and community partnerships. Students and staff at hundreds of campuses across the state
and nation are engaged in sustainability committees and actions.
    According to Dr. Scott Ralls, president of the North Carolina Community College System, “for almost 50 years, N.C. community colleges
have been national leaders in developing the connection between economic and workforce development.” For our system to play a role in the
future, Dr. Ralls believes that our community colleges must be among the national leaders in green job training and education, supporting the new
and existing green economic opportunities across the state.
    As a result, Dr. Ralls has started the Code Green Initiative that is providing colleges with a structure for going green. Initial efforts have begun
with the naming of a president-level committee to lay out the framework for how we train for green economy jobs, how we foster sustainability on
our campuses, and how we might use our campuses as learning labs for our students and our communities.
    The NCCCS has identified six areas of emphasis for the state’s community colleges: sustainable construction, green fuels such as biofuels,
green transportation, sustainable agriculture, advanced manufacturing in green-related industries, and sustainable energy. Nearly every one of the
state’s 58 community colleges is engaged in Code Green.
    At Edgecombe Community College, our green initiatives began in 2005 when we instituted a four-day work week in the summer. Employees
work ten-hour days Monday through Thursday, and the college is closed on Fridays. One building on the Tarboro campus – the Fleming Building
– remains open for community events, but the remaining buildings in Tarboro and Rocky Mount are closed and air conditioning is cut back to
save on energy costs. In the first year of the modified summer schedule, the college saved $8,300 in utilities. Since then, we have saved as much as
$23,000 over the summer.
    In addition to incorporating sustainability practices as an institution, we also are developing courses and programs in sustainability in both the
curriculum and continuing education divisions. You will read about these new programs in this report.
    The heart of our sustainability programs at Edgecombe is the Norfleet House. This historic home was a gift from the Town of Tarboro
and was moved to campus in October 2009. Historic preservation trades students are restoring the structure, which will become the college’s
new Community Heritage Center. We are very excited about this project and look forward to the time when can open it to the community as a
resource for materials on genealogy and preservation.
    Preserving the Earth’s resources is a task for everyone. As educators, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to introduce our students
and community citizens to greener ideas and to provide the training they need to be successful in green jobs.
    We remain grateful for your support of Edgecombe Community College.

the ECC Foundation Board of Directors in
2000 and serving as its treasurer. He also was
instrumental in planning and raising funds
for the Thomas S. Fleming Building on the
Tarboro campus. The facility opened in 2004.
