On December 12, 2017, Governor Roy Cooper announced Alex Wilson as one of 53 new appointments to various state boards and commissions. “I’m grateful that this talented group of North Carolinians will serve our people and our state in these new appointments,” Gov. Cooper said.
Alex Wilson was named an at-large member of the USS North Carolina Battleship Commission. The USS North Carolina Battleship Commission was established by general statutes of the State of North Carolina in 1960 to provide an organization whose charter was to oversee the administration and operation of the USS NORTH CAROLINA as a permanent memorial and exhibit for the State’s World War II veterans.
