“I am humbled and honored to be joining such an impressive Board of Trustees, said Martin. “I have had the privilege of working with the Wake Tech Health Sciences Division for many years; the students are second to none and bring tremendous talent to organizations in our community. I look forward to learning more and supporting all the great work of the college.”

Wake Tech is served by 12 trustees, all of whom are appointed: four by the governor, four by the Wake County Board of Commissioners, and four by the Wake County Board of Education.
