SANFORD - Frances Frye Roberts Warner, former Central Carolina Community College trustee and retired Lemon Springs postmaster, received an Honorary Associate of Arts degree from the college Friday during spring commencement exercises.
It is the first Honorary Associate degree given in the college's 50-year history.
"Today is a historic milestone," said college President Bud Marchant. "An honorary degree is the highest honor the college can bestow."
Warner was visibly moved at the presentation.
"I feel so honored, yet so humbled," she said. "My years at CCCC have been tremendous. They have been a blessing as well as an honor. I loved every minute of it."
Marchant and college trustee Jan Hayes presented Warner with the honorary degree certificate and stole during the morning session of the college's 50th Anniversary Spring Commencement at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center.
"To receive this honor requires that an individual demonstrate meritorious service, distinction through significant contributions to the community, and outstanding achievement in his or her profession," Hayes said prior to the presentation. "We honor Frances because she is a champion of education and a champion of the community. Frances has demonstrated selfless service throughout her life. She has been and continues to be so much to so many."
Warner, a Lemon Springs resident, served as a college trustee from 1999 to 2011. She served her community as postmaster, Lee County Board of Education member, active member of Greenwood Optimist Club, Just Read school volunteer, substitute teacher, wife, mother, and active church member.
