Kiana F. Rivers of Elizabeth City has been appointed as a member at-large to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission by Gov. Roy Cooper.

The appointment is one of 34 new appointments to state boards and commissions announced last week by the Governor’s Office.

Rivers, a student at the North Carolina Central University School of Law, interned with the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and attended a Cultural Immersion Summer Program in New Delhi, India.

Cooper also appointed two at-large members to the Edenton Historical Commission: Elizabeth Denning Culpepper of Raleigh and Sadie Riddick of Edenton.

Culpepper is a staff attorney for the North Carolina Utilities Commission. She served as commissioner for the Board of Adjustment for the town of Rolesville.

Riddick is a retired teaching assistant and health care professional. She is a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Edenton District Choir, and Lay Council Secretary.

“As governor, I’m honored to serve North Carolina with these dedicated leaders,” Cooper said in a statement released by his office. “Each person will bring valuable guidance and expertise to these state boards and commissions.”
