Master's meeting

Educators in Duplin, Greene, Johnston, Lenoir, Sampson and Wayne counties who aspire to a senior-level administrative position are invited to an information meeting on a new East Carolina University doctoral cohort program.

ECU's Department of Educational Leadership is gauging interest in a doctor of education program with concentrations in kindergarten through 12th grade and higher education leadership. The program would allow students to earn the degree from ECU by attending classes at Wayne Community College.

A meeting for interested educators will be held on Thursday, Jan. 27, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Moffatt Auditorium at Wayne Community. Contact Debbie Grady at 919-735-5151, ext. 385, gradyde@mail.ecu.edu or gradyde@waynecc.edu by Jan. 24 to register for the meeting or for more information.

Confederate names

The North Carolina Archives wants the names of North Carolina sailors and marines who served in the Civil War.

The names of the servicemen and any information about them will be used to create a roster of Civil War Confederate Naval personnel.

"There are volumes of Civil War rosters with the names of North Carolina's Confederate Civil War soldiers and there are lists of North Carolinians who served with Federal forces. But there is no consolidated list of those engaged with the state's naval services, which includes the marines," said Si Harrington, military collections archivist.

It is not clear how many North Carolinians served in the Confederate Navy or Marine Corps. Harrington has the names of about 500 servicemen already, and believes that more than 1,000 served.

Harrington can be contacted at 919-807-7314 or sion.harrington@ncmail.net.
