Twin County Hall of Fame Induction Banquet

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader

John Quincey Adams

It was an inspirational evening at the banquet the other night. It’s an excuse to dress up and everyone looked like they’d stepped out of a fashion magazine, both men and women. The Event Center banquet tables were each decorated with tributes to the inductees. Between the wonderful setting and the family and friends who attend the banquet, it was a celebration of the good people who have been the wind under the sails of Edgecombe and Nash Counties. The lives of this years 2021 Class of Inductees was one of service, leadership in their respective fields of endeavor, led spiritual lives of faith, and are lasting influences in making Rocky Mount a better place to live.

Gary Hodges, photographer for the event took wonderful photographs as usual. I only have a few of the Board members, that I admire and respect to the moon and back. An event like this is a major undertaking and without outstanding leadership the event would be a ‘tried to and couldn’t affair.’
