Lassiter leaving RCC

SALISBURY — Asheboro’s Elbert Lassiter has added a C to his daily destination.


Lassiter, who served as Randolph Community College’s President of Continuing Education and Workforce Development for nearly a decade and was the acting RCC President while the college’s Board of Trustees searched for a successor to Dr. Robert Shackleford, has taken a vice president position at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in Salisbury.


At RCCC, Lassiter will be the Vice President of Corporate and Continuing Education. He succeeds Craig Lamb, who retired in December.


In a press release from his new employer, President Dr. Carol S. Spalding said of Lassiter, “he is a respected community college leader with more than 30 years of experience in workforce development, management and leadership roles. His passion and commitment to providing an extraordinary learning experience for students, a motivational environment for faculty and staff, and strong community partnerships will help us take our corporate and continuing education programs to the next stage.”


Lassiter’s new responsibilities include training and education programs in support of community, economic and workforce development. 


Reporting directly to Spalding, he will continue the College’s work as the preferred provider for meeting the region’s needs in workforce training and education.


Lassiter holds a bachelor’s degree from Shaw University and a master’s from Grand Canyon University.
