NEW HANOVER COUNTY — The New Hanover County Board of Education will name two appointees to the Cape Fear Community College Board of Trustees in coming months.

One seat is available now and the second will open this summer. Interested parties submitting letters of interest and resumes should include reasoning why they want to serve and what skills they will bring. It also should denote which seat the person wants to fill.
