Beginning a New Chapter of My Career With Novant Health

ImageFriends, I am leaving Central Piedmont Community College and WTVI to pursue a new opportunity with Novant Health. I’m so excited and inspired to be joining a fantastic team that is improving the experience for patients and “making healthcare remarkable” across the region.

I’ve been with CPCC in various career roles for nearly 15 years. It has been incredible! The college community has been a unique and supportive environment in which to learn and develop professionally. I’ve been blessed with meaningful work and passionate colleagues. I’ve grown from a student within the college to a leader and voice for the college and community. Amazing.

I just want to thank all of my CPCC colleagues for their friendship, support and patience over the years. I will continue to carry with me the community college vision of affordable life-changing education for everyone. Educators, you make an impact that is far reaching. I wish you all blessings and success to come.

Adam S Brooks
