Village of Alamance municipal building named for original clerk

The Village of Alamance town hall building has recently been named for Naydine Sharpe, the village’s original town clerk who helped get the village government incorporated in 1979. Sharpe is also a former mayor pro tem.

She served as town clerk from 1979 to 2002 and then served on the board of aldermen from 2003 to 2021. During that time, she was the mayor pro tem from 2005-2012 and again from 2015-2021.

The town’s board of aldermen named its town hall for Sharpe in December 2021, but the original cornerstone of the building has been updated to reflect the naming for Sharpe. A dedication ceremony was held in conjunction with a recent board of aldermen meeting on January 23.
