High-Impact Fellows

School of Government building
Rockingham County’s motto is “You’re in a Good Place,” and their county government works hard to live up to the distinction. For the past few years, Rockingham County has partnered with the UNC School of Government’s Lead for North Carolina (LFNC) program to place young people in high-impact fellowships in their county government office.

“The LFNC program has been phenomenal for Rockingham County,” said County Manager Lance Metzler. “The relationship has been fantastic. The quality of fellows that we get has been superb.”

In August 2022, Olivia Leggett, Erin Marie Anderson, and Nina Worth began their work in the office of the assistant county manager as LFNC fellows supporting the community.

The county looks to LFNC to provide fellows that are talented, eager to learn about local government and ready to help transform communities for the better.

“The fellows do a lot of work that provides information for our community,” added Metzler. “They are able to learn about all aspects of local government while they provide many deliverables that make our county impressive to others.”
