Raleigh – Colonel Glenn M. McNeill Jr., commander of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, provided remarks to the 76 newly promoted members of the state highway patrol, their families and friends in a ceremony today in Cary.  Of the 76 members, 10 civilian members were recognized for their recent promotions by Deputy Commander Vic Ward.  The newly promoted members were given their oath of office by the Honorable Chief Justice Mark D. Martin of the Supreme Court of North Carolina.

“In assuming these positions of leadership you will sew on new stripes and place new brass upon your collars, but true leadership requires so much more,” said Colonel Glenn M. McNeill Jr., commander of the State Highway Patrol. “Leading others is a privilege and a great responsibility that requires a heightened sense of integrity, professionalism, ethics and loyalty which are all pillars of our organization.”

The promoted members names, ranks, and duty stations are being provided for your information.
