Modlin, Stowe receive BCCC honors
Their peers recently recognized two Beaufort County Community College employees — Lynne Modlin and Lentz Stowe — for their service to the college.
Modlin, Associate Degree Nursing instructor, was named Faculty Member of the Year and Stowe, director of Business and Industry Services, was named Staff Member of the Year, both by BCCC campus committees.
Modlin, of Jamesville, joined BCCC’s faculty as an instructor in the Associate Degree Nursing Program in 2007. She graduated from Williamston High School in 1989 and earned a bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University in 1994 and a master’s degree in nursing education from Walden University in 2011.
She is trained in the operations of high-fidelity simulators and directs the BCCC simulation lab – each week creating interactive scenarios using BCCC’s high and low fidelity mannequins. At Halloween, Modlin creates a display using the mannequins during which students are invited to identify breaks in safety or infection control.
Modlin is also the first of BCCC’s nursing faculty to use Mediasite to capture lectures electronically for students not only to use in reviewing materials but also to address issues involving inclement weather and classroom work.
She serves as chairman of BCCC’s Instructional Calendar Committee and treasurer and chairman of the Instructional Affairs Committee of the BCCC Faculty Senate.
Modlin and her husband, Michael, have two children, Bryce and Michaela. She is a member of Cedar Branch Baptist Church where she is chairman of the Personnel Committee. In her spare time, Modlin enjoys spending time with her family and gardening.
Stowe, a native of Washington, has served as Director of BCCC’s Business and Industry Services since 2003. Business and Industry Services includes the Small Business Center, which provides counseling and workshops for prospective and current business owners, and the Customized Training Program, which offers workforce training opportunities to local industries operating or re-locating to the region.
Stowe is a 1979 graduate of Washington High School and earned bachelor’s degrees in business management and in economics from North Carolina State University in 1983.
He was one of the first managers hired by Donnelley Marketing when they moved to Washington in 1983, and held various positions in the Washington plant before being named senior production manager of the company’s plant in Elm City in 1990. In 1993 he was named Plant Manager of the Beaufort County operation. During Stowe’s tenure the Donnelley/Cox Target Media operation was the fifth largest employer in our county and achieved preferred vendor status as a supplier to Procter & Gamble.
Stowe was named the Washington/Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce’s Community Leader of the Year for 2013 and his work counseling a restaurant in Creswell was cited by the North Carolina Community College System Small Business Center Network. He serves as co-chairman of BCCC’s Marketing Committee and as a member of the Business Continuity Planning Committee.
Stowe and his wife, Tricia, have two daughters, Hayley and Erin. He is a member of the First United Methodist Church in Washington and served on the church’s administrative board from 1993 to 1994 and as chairman of its Stewardship Committee from 2000 to 2002.
