Lead for North Carolina Prepares Future Leaders

Lead for North Carolina (LFNC) is generating real-world impact in North Carolina’s communities. By placing promising young leaders in paid local government fellowships across the state, the program is helping to create the next generation of public servants.

The program launched in summer 2019, providing training and ongoing support to 16 fellows. Many LFNC Fellows are serving rural and economically distressed communities and counties, which typically struggle to attract young professionals.

The University recently visited three LFNC Fellows—Liam Brailey (Anson County), Saiorse Scott (Edenton), and Shom Tiwari (Elizabeth City)—to profile their work and show the program’s impact on the state. Click here to watch that video and see what our fellows are accomplishing.
