The Liberty County NAACP announced recently that President Graylan Quarterman resigned his post in order to run for Liberty County chairman.
Quarterman said his resignation as president of the NAACP was necessary to avoid any perception of a conflict of interest, according to an NAACP press reelase.
“During Quarterman’s time as president of Liberty NAACP, he helped to move the mission and agenda of NAACP forward in Liberty County, he reaffirmed NAACP’s relevance in today’s society, and had no challenges with challenging bad policies,” the release said.
Quarterman is a life member of NAACP. He had been president of Liberty NAACP since 2016.
“His leadership and mentoring will have a lasting impact on the association. We wish him well in his endeavor,” the association’s press release said.
The leadership of Liberty NAACP remains intact. Mr. Artis Morrison, 1st vice president has ascended to the position of president; Mr. Morrison has the full support of Dr. Karen Bell, 2nd vice president, Natalie M. Hines, secretary, and members of the Executive Committee, the release continued.
“These dedicated leaders will keep the mission and vision of the Association in the forefront,” it said. “Executive Committee members are extremely grateful for Mr. Quarterman’s commitment to service, and leadership. They plan to keeping the momentum going.”
