Dr. Brown currently serves as the Vice President of Learning, Student Engagement and Success (Chief Academic and Student Affairs Officer) at Vance-Granville Community College. Mudd is the Principal of Martin Millennium Academy in Edgecombe County.

As part of his role at Vance-Granville Community College, Dr. Brown serves as the college’s primary lead for their student success and teaching and learning work with Achieving the Dream and the Association of Colleges and University Educators. In addition, Brown is responsible for working alongside his leadership team and other staffers to ensure quality K-12 partnerships, student services, and academic programs.

As Principal of Martin Millennium Academy in Tarboro, NC, Mudd and her staff lead approximately 600 scholars with love and a passion for helping young people realize the incredible power and agency they have to design their most desired futures. After earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of Maryland, Mudd joined Teach for America and has been working in education in eastern North Carolina since 2006. She earned a Master’s in School Administration from North Carolina State University in 2013 and was a Northeast Leadership Academy Fellow during that time. Mudd also participated in the New and Aspiring School Leaders Institute at Harvard University in 2010, and the Rural Schools Leadership Academy in 2011. 

“Dr. Brown’s and Principal Mudd’s proximity to students, educators, and our mission in Eastern North Carolina will be a huge asset,” shared Dr. Perry-Graves. “We look forward to their contributions and continued partnership in our work to ensure that all students in our community are on a path to economic mobility and co-creating a future filled with possibility.”
