One of the Country's Top Paralegal Programs Named for Bill Diehl

The Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) Paralegal Program will be named the William K. Diehl, Jr. Paralegal Program in recognition of a generous gift from Mr. Diehl.

CPCCʼs Paralegal Program, established in 1975, is ranked among the top Paralegal Programs in the United States. It is western North Carolinaʼs only Paralegal Program approved by the American Bar Association (ABA), it is North Carolina State Bar-approved, and is one of only five such programs in the entire state. It served 720 students this year.

Mr. Diehl is a longtime proponent of Central Piedmont Community College President Dr. Tony Zeissʼ leadership and has a strong interest in education. He is an active lecturer and teacher in the field of trial practice and family law, and serves on the University of Virginia Law School Alumni Council. He has almost 40 years of experience in civil, family and criminal law.

An event to celebrate Mr. Diehlʼs generous commitment and the naming of the Paralegal Program will take place in the near future.
