WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A member of the Wilmington Housing Board is resigning. Lethia Hankins' resignation takes effect next month.
She has been on the board since 2006 and says she is resigning because of too many other commitments.
Prior to joining the Housing Authority, Hankins was a member of the Wilmington City Council for four years. She also spent time on the New Hanover County Board of Education.
Back in September, Hankins was named a WECT Cape Fear Hero for her work in the community.
