Richard Fowler joined NCSSM in June 2023 as a Network Administrator for our Morganton campus. Born in Greensboro, NC, he moved to McDowell County, NC, when he was 10 years old. He earned an associate’s degree from McDowell Technical Community College, and his bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University. Prior to NCSSM, Richard worked in the North Carolina Community College System for more than 20 years as an IT analyst, a network manager, an adjunct instructor, and finally as a full-time instructor teaching CIT and network management. For the last four school years prior to coming to NCSSM, he taught at James Sprunt Community College in Kenansville, NC. Richard has now proudly lived in the three great regions of North Carolina, the Coastal Plain, the Piedmont, and the Mountains! Richard enjoys spending time with his wife and children.
