A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties through 4am Friday. Rain and light sleet continues to fall through the area. Temperatures are still about freezing.
The spotlight was on the students Friday afternoon at Pitt Community College.
It was part of an academic excellence awards luncheon where fifty students were recognized for their good grades and academic achievements. The teachers, faculty, board members, and even local politicians dined in their honor.
Pitt Community College leaders said this day was second only to graduation in terms of significance to the students.
