Irvin Enzor III school board candidate for District 3. The conservative choice!

William Irvin Enzor III
Bio – Columbus County Board of Education – District 3

William “Irvin” Enzor III resides in Fair Bluff, NC – Columbus County BOE District 3.  Irvin and his wife, Tiffany Andel Enzor have been married 25 years.  Tiffany has been a salon owner/hair stylist for 25+ years and graduate of West Columbus & SCC.  They have one daughter, Kennedy Enzor who is a graduate of West Columbus and was dual enrolled taking many classes at SCC.  Kennedy is a senior at UNC Chapel Hill majoring in a medical program – Radiologic Science with a specialty in Ultrasound technology.  

From a career perspective, Irvin has worked for UCB, BB&T and Truist for almost 28 years. Irvin has been fortunate to serve in roles including: Loan Adjuster, Contact Center Associate, Team Leader, Group Supervisor, Team Manager, Operations/Production Manager II, and a Risk Analyst II.  In 2022, Irvin accepted a new role within the Retail and Small Business Banking Client Advocacy organization as an Assistant Vice President, Client Experience Coach II.  This role pairs well with Irvin’s skill sets allowing him to execute on his passions to lead, mentor, and educate teammates to become subject matter experts in their respective business units. 


From an educational standpoint, Irvin teaches evening courses at SCC in the workforce development program.  His lectures are specific to enhance skills needed to be successful in client service roles.  He builds on soft skills, resume building and interviewing techniques.  This is a great educational success pathway where Irvin adds tremendous value regarding secondary education to all Columbus County and neighboring counties students. His long-term goals are to work with SCC leadership to bring additional value to the college & students by enhancing course curriculum.  

To strive to keep himself knowledgeable within the dynamic financial and educational industries, Irvin is obtaining his MBA with a focus on leadership at East Carolina University.  Irvin recently received a certificate of completion participating in the 2022 Leadership Columbus Program sponsored by the Columbus Chamber of Commerce & Tourism and SCC.  The Leadership Columbus is a program designed to develop a group of informed, committed and qualified citizens capable of providing dynamic leadership for Columbus County, recognizing that volunteer leadership is one of the most valuable assets of a community.  Irvin thrived in this environment as he gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about Columbus County industries paired with developing long-lasting networking opportunities to enhance his leadership skills. 

From a community service perspective, Irvin is and has consistently been actively engaged in community.  To enhance Irvin’s leadership, networking and encouragement to get involved in communities we serve, Irvin was positioned to lead community service Truist Lighthouse Projects.  He has served on the corporate committee leading projects for 10+ years partnering with non-profit leaders.  These projects provided a platform designed to allow Truist Teammates to work with non-profits to execute on our Purpose – Inspire and build better lives and communities. 

As stated, Irvin’s passions are education, community service, and leadership.  These are the driving factors that position Irvin well to secure a seat on the Columbus County Board of Education.  Irvin had the opportunity to interview for the appointment to the BOE earlier this year and felt “in his element” ready to accept the challenge to be the voice for District 3.  His campaign is focused on students, parents, teachers and Columbus County administrators to ensure his knowledge and experience continues the current board’s great work and add value focusing on ensuring our children receive the best education possible to secure future success.
