Carter starts work as CEO of Tri-County CAA

South Boston News
Carter / February 12, 2018

Petrina A. Carter was recently named the new president/CEO of the organization by a unanimous vote of the board of directors. She began work at Tri-County Feb. 5.

Carter takes on the job after William J. Coleman stepped down in September to take a position in the Lynchburg area. Coleman had led Tri-County CAA for the past eight years.

Carter has 25 years of work experience in social services. She was most recently the senior manager of the Virginia Employment Commission in Danville.

She holds a Master of Science degree in training and development from the University of Saint Francis, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

“As I join the Tri-County Community Action Agency, as president/CEO, I am glad to bring my extensive expertise and experience in social services management and economic development in Southside Virginia,” said Carter.

“I am also excited to continue the great work that Tri-County has implemented in Halifax, Mecklenburg and Charlotte counties. Together with Tri-County, I look forward to getting deeply involved in these communities and hearing from community members about their needs and aspirations for their community.”
