In order to be certified, Granberry completed the Register of Deeds program through the School of Government at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“I believe this certification shows commitment to the office and to the residents of Mecklenburg County," said Granberry. “I take my responsibilities very seriously, and hope to be the best Register of Deeds as possible.”
Certification is not required to serve as Register of Deeds; however, Granberry would like to see additional staff within the office complete the program.
“Having staff going through certification helps us provide better service to the residents of Mecklenburg County," Granberry added. "Investing in training also shows that we are committed to our employee’s growth within the county.”
Granberry, originally from Goldsboro, NC, was elected as Register of Deeds in November 2008. He holds a degree in business administration from North Carolina Wesleyan College.
