Midyette, 41, of Pinetown, is a student in BCCC’s Heavy Construction Equipment Program. A graduate of Northside High School, Midyette is employed in the marine construction industry.

The Lucille Edwards Carowan Dibble Endowment was established in 2007 by her husband, Lewis M. Dibble, and daughters Gladys Carowan Howell and Clarissa Carowan Phillips of Washington, Mary Carowan Mertz of Durham and Martha Carowan Zito of Matthews with support from Mrs. Dibble’s friends. It funds an industrial technology scholarship for a student attending BCCC.
Over the years, Mrs. Dibble was active in many civic and church activities. She played an important role in BCCC’s history. Mrs. Dibble chaired a $600,000 bond issue to fund capital improvements at then Beaufort County Technical Institute which included construction of the institute’s first library. For seven years, Mrs. Dibble also chaired BCCC’s College Parallel Committee which oversaw changes in the school’s curriculum which were needed during the transition from technical institute to community college.
