I have lived in Elizabeth City for more than a decade now. I think I may be one of this region’s biggest cheerleaders. Having lived in so many other places, I have some perspective about what makes northeastern North Carolina such a special place to live. I could easily summarize that distinction as quality of life. This is a community that still talks to each other about our challenges. That still rallies to people in need. That still sits on front porches and genuinely greets those strolling or driving by with a wave or hello. That still gives up a seat for an elder. That still offers their gifts and talents to make the community a better place.
