Diane has deep roots in New Bern; she, her parents, children and husband are all NBHS alumni. She holds a Bachelor’s from UNC and a Master’s from ECU. After retiring from Craven Community College in 2016 (she still teaches there part-time), she became a very active volunteer for the Clinton campaign, joined DWCC, worked at the polls for Barbara Lee for NC House in 2018, and in 2019 served as field coordinator for the Allen Thomas for Congress campaign. She is currently the Secretary for CCDP.
VICE PRESIDENT--NELL HUDSON
Growing up in Jacksonville, NC, Nell has been a resident of New Bern since 2011. She is a graduate of Wake Forest University and was a public school teacher for six years. She stayed home with her kids for many years and volunteered at either their schools or Christ Episcopal Church. In 2018, Nell started to become more politically active and in 2020 she focused on Dr. Jen Mangrum’s campaign for NC State Superintendent of Public Instruction. She contributes much of her political support and knowledge to being a member of DWCC.
As a new member of DWCC, Cheryl was responsible for creating our ‘EquiTea’ series which brought in local speakers to discuss non-partisan issues relevant to women. Having directed ECU’s Women’s Studies Program for 10 years, she now co-directs its Gender Studies Program and chairs its Gender Studies Executive Board. For her work, Cheryl has received the Chancellor’s Centennial Award for Excellence in Service and was recently named an ECU Woman of Distinction.
Barbara started her career serving in the U.S. Air Force in Administration. She went on to get her Associate’s Degree in Accounting, became Vice-President of the Advisory Committee and served as Treasurer for the Craven Terrace Resident Council. She is currently on the Board of Adjustments, volunteers for Meals on Wheels and would like to continue to carry out the legacy of her father, the late Commissioner Sampson, by being involved in the New Bern community.
