“I received my associate’s degree from Lees-McRae when it was a junior college and jumped on the opportunity to pursue the Business Administration degree when it was offered online. This gives me the perfect chance to finish what I started in Banner Elk many years ago!”
–Maggie J. Huie, Perdue Foods Director of Operations
