Board of Education member recognized for service with state organization 

PITTSBORO — The North Carolina School Boards Trust recently recognized Chatham County Board of Education member David Hamm for his years of service on the state organization’s Board of Trustees.

Mr. Hamm served on the Trust’s Board of Trustees from 2019 through 2022. The North Carolina School Boards Trust, through the N.C. School Boards Association, has been the primary and trusted risk management partner of North Carolina public school districts throughout the state since 1982.

NCSBT is the only member-funded, member-managed risk management program in the state designed specifically for our public school districts. It is governed by a board of trustees composed of board of education members from across the state. The program provides a number of coverage options to its members through its three funds:

  • Errors and Omissions/General Liability

  • Automobile/Inland Marine

  • Workers’ Compensation

“I was honored to have the opportunity to support education on a state level,” Mr. Hamm said. “This organization provides vital services for local school boards across the state, and I was thrilled to be able to contribute to its mission through my service.”

Mr. Hamm has served on the Chatham County Schools Board of Education since 2008. He has been a Chatham County resident since 1970. Mr. Hamm graduated from Northwood High School and attended East Carolina University where he earned undergraduate and Master’s degrees in Elementary Education. He completed his administrative degree from UNC-Chapel Hill. Mr. Hamm was a first-grade teacher (Pittsboro Elementary), assistant principal (Siler City Elementary), and principal (Bonlee and Pittsboro Elementary) in Chatham County Schools for 28 years.
