The late Rep. William Wainwright served in the NC General Assembly from 1991 to his death in 2012, rising to become the first African American Speaker Pro Tem since reconstruction. His strong devotion to the Democratic Party and his record of service to the state led to the creation of Craven County Democrats’ major fundraiser and award banquet in his honor.  Rep. Wainwright also served as presiding elder of the New Bern District of the AME Zion Church.
