A beloved local historian passes away.
Marty Tschetter was well-known as the historian at the Wayne County Public Library, helping the community learn and understand its past.
At yesterday’s county board meeting, Wayne County Library Director Donna Phillips read the county’s proclamation honoring Tschetter.
Phillips says Tschetter wasn’t from Wayne County, but this clearly became home to him.
She says MArty loved preserving and sharing the stories of all of the county’s people.
Geoff Hulse, a member of the Friends of the Library Board, says he was honored to work with Tschetter on several projects.
Wayne County Manager Craig Honeycutt says Tschetter will be missed in the library and the county.
Tschetter was born in Lansing, MI in 1970.
His family moved to Greenville, NC in 1973 and Tschetter eventually joined the Wayne County Library as the local historian in 2013.
Tschetter passed away last week at the age of 51.
In his honor, memorial contributions can be made to the Marty Tschetter Local History Internship, Wayne County Public Library Foundation, Inc., 1001 E. Ash, Goldsboro, NC 27530.
This week, both the Goldsboro City Council and Wayne County Board of Commissioners approved proclamations naming Tuesday, April 20th, as “Marty Tschetter Day.”
