Evans was one of 23 elected leaders who completed the ALC program, which was held Feb. 10 – 15 at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill. The ALC was created in 2013 to help city and county elected officials understand the broader challenges of governing in today’s environment, to enable them to build their personal leadership abilities and to give them an opportunity to act collaboratively. More than 80 municipal and county elected officials from across North Carolina have completed the program since its inception.


Evans is serving his third term on the Board of Commissioners. He was elected in 2010 as an at-large representative and re-elected in 2014 and 2018. Evans served as the board’s vice chairman in 2017. He served two terms on the Fayetteville City Council from 2005-2009.

Evans is a Fayetteville native who attended Terry Sanford High School and Fayetteville Technical Community College. He is a disabled Army veteran and executive director of Life is Worth Living-Project Fresh Start.


Evans was elected in 2018 to serve a full term as 1st Vice President of the N.C. Association of Black County Officials. Evans was presented the Ester Department/Mary McAllister Individual Award by the Fayetteville-Cumberland Human Relations Commission in 2018.
