Ned Everett Delamar, a decorated paratrooper who single handedly took out an enemy machine gun nest which had his squad pinned down in the battle for Italy, was known for greeting friends or strangers with that familiar salutation, “Airborne.” After the greeting, his hand would reach down in a pocket for a piece of butterscotch candy which he quietly placed in the hand of the person just greeted.
To the NC Community College Family:
From: Dr. Scott Ralls, President, North Carolina Community College System
I regret to inform you that one of the most influential persons in the history of the North Carolina Community College System, Ned E. Delamar, passed away yesterday, November 18. He was 94 years of age. Arrangements are by Bryant Funeral Home in Alliance, NC. The funeral will be on Friday, November 22, 2013, at 10:30 am at the Oriental United Methodist Church, 404 Freemason Street, Oriental, NC.
The Honorable Ned E. Delamar was a decorated veteran of WWII, and a retired representative for Pamlico County in the NC House of Representatives. While serving in the State House, he co-sponsored legislation in 1963 that created the NC Community College System. He and Ed Wilson, Sr. traversed the State of North Carolina, promoting and paving the way for the development of technical and training institutions that later would comprise the 58 colleges in our System. He later went on to become the first Director of the Division of Specialty Programs for the Department of Community Colleges. In 1997, Mr. Delamar was awarded the highest award for service to community colleges, the I.E. Ready Award, in recognition of his pioneering spirit and dedication to the goal of academic excellence for all citizens of North Carolina. The Delamar Center at Pamlico Community College was also named in his honor.
Please join with me in remembering this remarkable man and all that he meant to the North Carolina Community College System. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Delamar family.
Pamlico Community College dedicated its new auditorium and allied health classroom facility as The Ned Everett Delamar, Jr. Center in 2008.
“Learning is now unlimited at community colleges. When I helped sponsor the legislation creating the community college system in the 1960’s, it was hard to imagine the magnitude of growth that would take place. North Carolina’s community colleges now serve over 800,000 students.”
Ned Everett Delamar, Jr. 1919 – 2013
