JAMESTOWN – Greensboro attorney Jarvis T. Harris has been named chairman of the Guilford Technical Community College Board of Trustees. Harris succeeds Coy O. Williard, Jr. of High Point who led the GTCC Board of Trustees for the past three academic years. Harris previously served as vice chairman. The 41 year-old member of the R. Steve Bowden & Associates law firm is the first African American male to chair the board during GTCC’s 55-year history. He’s also the youngest board chair in GTCC’s history.
In responding to his appointment, Harris said he was confident that his service as a board member and the mentorship of former chairs Shirley Frye and Coy O. Williard, Jr. have prepared him for this exciting leadership role at one of America’s top community colleges.
GTCC President Randy Parker noted that Harris’ relationship with the community has benefitted him immensely since he assumed the GTCC presidency in 2011, and he looks forward to expanding that relationship during the new chairman’s term.
The Guilford County Board of Commissioners initially appointed Harris to the GTCC Board of Trustees on July 1, 2003. The North Carolina native graduated from Kinston High School and continued his education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where, as a Pogue Scholar recognized for academic achievement and strong leadership potential, he received a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Political Science and a Juris Doctorate from UNC School of Law.
After completing law school, Harris worked for Brooks Brothers and the North Carolina Industrial Commission in Raleigh as an agency legal specialist under Commissioners Bernadine Ballance and Laura Mavretic. Harris joined the Greensboro law firm of R. Steve Bowden & Associates in March 2000 to concentrate on worker’s compensation and social security disability cases. Harris and his wife, a Guilford County Schools administrator, have two daughters.
Harris was a founding member of the Guilford Education Alliance and serves as its immediate past chair -- the first African American to hold that position. Notable among his community service commitments is his membership on the advisory committee for the Salvation Army of Greensboro’s Boys and Girls Club. He is a life member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the 2005 National Alumni Brother of the Year for the organization.
Harris owns J. Harris Photography and Design, a photography studio specializing in portraiture and event photography. When his hectic schedule allows, he may be found coaching at the Spears Family YMCA or practicing the acoustic guitar, which he recently began playing.
Guilford Technical Community College is the third largest of 58 institutions in the NC Community College System. GTCC serves approximately 45,000 students annually from four major campuses and three specialized centers.
