Three new members have been appointed to the Johnston Community College Board of Trustees.

Mary Daughtry of Pine Level, a retired educator and gifted education specialist with Johnston County Schools, replaces Eldridge Westbrook of Four Oaks, who served 20 years as a trustee. Polly Lamberth of Smithfield, a former state civil rights compliance manager, replaces the late Durwood Woodall, who passed away in April and served on the college board for eight years. Joshua P. Thompson of Clayton, director of people and organization at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries, replaces Ann Game, a 12-year veteran on the board.


Daughtry and Lamberth were appointed by the Johnston County Board of Education. Thompson is a governor's appointment.

Meanwhile, Lyn Austin, a JCC trustee for 20 years and chair of the board, has been reappointed for a sixth term by the county commissioners. JCC SGA president Megan Ludy of Clayton is the new student trustee and will serve as a non-voting member for 2016-17.

Austin, Daughtry, Lamberth, and Thompson will each serve a four-year term.
