Stanley Green, Jr.
The Board of Directors, Staff and Family of the Rocky Mount OIC mourns the loss of one of our founders and leaders, the late Stanley Green, Jr. Mr. Green was one of the founders of Rocky Mount OIC and served as our Board Chairman (1974-1986), Vice-Chairman, Treasurer and Fundraising Chairman.
OIC of America awarded the OIC Torch-Bearer Award to Mr. Green for his outstanding and untiring years of service in the work of OIC organizations and was the first North Carolina resident to receive this award. Mr. Green was recognized along with other notable leaders such as Vernon Jordan, Dick Gregory, Benjamin Hooks, Andrew Young, Shirley Chisholm and Joseph Lowery. His impact on the growth of the Rocky Mount OIC will forever live in the history of our organization. Under his chairmanship, partnerships were formed to assist in the development of the OIC programs with Edgecombe Community College and J P Stevens, a multinational textile manufacturer. While he was chair, the OIC Beauty Pageant, OIC Annual Labor Day Tennis Tournament and the OIC Annual Business & Industry Appreciation Banquet were formed and prospered. Mr. Green always attended OIC of America’s National Convocation to represent Rocky Mount in order to bring back ideas that would help our economy and organization grow.
While in Rocky Mount, Mr. Green was the Assistant Vice President of Peoples Bank and Trust Company. He later moved to Raleigh, NC to assume the role of Vice-President and City Executive for Mechanics and Farmers Bank. Wherever Mr. Green traveled, the OIC motto “helping people help themselves” remained in his heart and was always reflected in his work.
