Dr. Darryl McGraw has retired from his position as vice president of administration, financial, and information technology resources at Johnston Community College after 32 years of state service.

Since 2016, McGraw served as the college’s chief financial officer providing leadership in planning, organizing, and directing financial operations as well as management in the areas of human resources, information technology, facilities and construction management, auxiliary services, and campus safety and security.

McGraw joined JCC for the second time three years ago. Early in his career, he served as the dean of information technology at the college.

A Whiteville native, McGraw worked as vice chancellor of information technology and chief information officer at North Carolina A&T State University before JCC. Prior to that position, he worked as the chief information officer at Wake Tech Community College and as the associate vice president for instructional development and technology with the North Carolina Community College System.

Over the past three years, McGraw focused a lot of energy on improving the esthetics of campus, facility upgrades, and managing construction of the college’s new Student Success Center set to open in October. He said he was also proud that Johnston County voters supported a $15 million bond last November that will allow for the construction of an engineering building on main campus.

“I am grateful to Johnston Community College and Dr. David Johnson for allowing me to finish my career at JCC with 32 years of service,” McGraw said. “Being part of a high-performing organization gives me a great sense of pride. We can all be proud of the efforts of the college.”

Dr. David Johnson, JCC president, thanked McGraw for his management and leadership.

“Darryl has been an invaluable member of the Administrative Council team and a tireless contributor to the many efforts of JCC,” Johnson said. “His span of control has been broad and yet he managed those areas admirably. Although his latest service to JCC has been short lived, he has, with his staff, totally transformed the appearance of our campus. His expertise and total commitment to JCC will be sorely missed.”

Herman Kight, former vice president of administrative services at JCC, will serve as interim vice president.
