Those in attendance made dinner selections from a variety of delicious entrees prepared by Southeastern’s Food and Nutrition Services staff. The guest speaker was Alphonzo McRae, who serves as vice president for institutional services at Robeson Community College as well as on Southeastern Health’s board of trustees.
