T. Heath Nance, Class of ’98

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Thomas “Heath” Nance credits his solid educational foundation to Southeastern Community College (SCC). Now, the Assistant District Attorney of the 13th Prosecutorial District in North Carolina, he is thankful for the time he had to develop as a student and professional at SCC.

Nance began his educational journey at Southeastern Community College in 1996. He stated that the small classes, familiarity of professors and previous interaction through College and Career fairs, really drew him to attend SCC prior to a 4 year college or university. Since he was unsure about his major, he felt confident that this was the best step forward to obtaining his college degree.

In addition to the strong academics, he valued the many activities and leadership positions that were available to him at SCC. Throughout his tenure at SCC, he was an Ambassador, Math Assistant, traveled to Puerto Rico on behalf of the SCC Choir, studied beginner & intermediate Snow Skiing, and was involved in the Environmental Bio Club.

Nance went on to UNC Chapel Hill to receive his Bachelor of Science in Public Health in 2001 and his Masters in Business Administration in 2005 from Elon University. During his time working in administration at UNC Hospitals, he realized that he had a love for public service. Later that year in 2005, he enrolled in law school at North Carolina Central University School of Law, obtaining his Juris Doctor in 2008.

Heath is now living in Whiteville, North Carolina with his wife of 13 years and newborn daughter. He is a dedicated to public service and the people of North Carolina. He continues to be an active member in the community; serving as a board member of the Columbus County DREAM Center and on the Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America, Cape Fear Council.

We are proud of all Heath has accomplished and are thankful for his continued contributions to our community!
