Lenoir County College Students

In a new database added to the NCGenWeb you will find listings of students from North Carolina colleges who are from Lenoir County.  As of this writing there are 140+ names on the list, but this is sure to grow as I continue to add to the database.

You can find the list of students here.  Surnames include Bell, Churchill, Daughety, Davis, Fields, Harper, Howard, Moseley, Pittman, Rouse and more.

The students listed are mostly seniors who graduated about 1930 and earlier.  In the upcoming months additional entries will be added.  A link to this resource has been added to the Education page.  Enjoy!
